Statutes of limitation on filing a claim against LAPD

April 1st

To whom it may concern,

I don't know if this is the proper channel to go through in regards to my question, if not, could you tell me who I should address this to?

I grew up in Los Angeles and for me, it is home. However, I was forced to leave the place I call home, due to being a victim of police misconduct. I was set up, wrongfully charged and arrested, then harrassed when I tried to fight this in court. I was harrassed so badly, that I feared for my son and I's life and fled to another state. I still reside outside of California. I am studying criminal justice and just started a class on police corruption, in which a large portion of the material focuses on corruption inside the LAPD. This has me wondering if there is anything that can be done for me and my case? It was seven years ago and I never pursued fighting the case out of fear no one would believe me. This has affected me and my son for the last seven years, as we are anxious to return to the city we both call home. Is there anything I can do, or is it too late?
