Here is the situation:

A good friend of mine was sexually assaulted while she was studying overseas on an exchange program. Rather than pressing charges, she decided to leave and come back home (US). This happened a couple of years ago.

She just found out this person, another exchange student (non-USC) is now studying in the States! Obviously, she'd rather he was not in this country... just knowing he's here has brought back a ton of bad memories..


Nothing I say is legal advice. I recommend you consult a qualified immigration attorney for any questions you may have.

I'd say her statute of limitations either has run out or she will likely have no proof of any attack.

Could she write to the school admissions where he is attending and let them know her ordeal, including that she didn't press charges? The least they can do is be on the lookout for any behavior, especially if a female student there gets assaulted....hopefully before he strikes again.

I just feel bad since everyone around me knows I've become an immigration junkie and I really think nothing could be done. The only thing I could tell her is he probably won't stay.

She wanted to send a letter to immigration but I thought this could be considered slander? I don't know. My legal background is nil at the moment.

Unfortunately, officially, I'd say it's a little late now. Unless she's looking for some street justice. Never too late for a little payback. :devil:

You got it.

:thumbs: Legally, her options are pretty limited. However, there are probably a few things she could do in the U.S. to make his life uncomfortable without breaking his kneecaps. Not to say the MOFO doesn't deserve it though :angry:

excellent post sis

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

They would MAYBE investigate it - but either too late or they won't bother. Since she filed no report, there is no evidence.

That's the problem with sexual assault. If you don't report it right away, it's REALLY hard to see the person in question receive any punishment. Sending a letter to USCIS would not be slander (because the accusations are true) but would also be pretty ineffectual, I'd imagine. I feel bad for your friend, who is going to have to live with the fact that she didn't report the guy. (Of course, in some places reporting a rape would be pretty useless.)

Don't think it would hurt anything if she went to the school admin and just present what happened to her and wanted them to be aware of him. They can do as they wish, but at least she made the effort to alert them. Wishing her success in getting thru this.

Considering that no charges were ever filed, I would say this would fall under 'innocent until proven guilty' and talking to the school could be construed as slander.

Furthermore, OP....if the attack happened in another country, the US has no jurisdiction over prosecuting (iinm)?

If it's not provable as true, her claims are indeed, slander.
