I was molested as a child when I was 9 -10 years old by a 12 -13 year old. I am now 19 years old and the person that this occurred with is 22 years old. When this first happened I just went a long with it and subsequent times that any sexual touching occurred I went a long with it. He penetrated me on 2 occasions. He now lives in Toronto Canada. Its been about 8 years since this happened and is embarrasing and I want a professional opinion. Because of his age at the time can I sue him or press charges?
