Apex, NC asked in Criminal Law and Sexual Harassment for North Carolina

Q: Is there a limit on time? What happens if reported outside of limitations?

I disclosed to a current employee at the high school I graduated from that a coach had sexual relations with me while I was black out drunk and was a 16 year old student at the school. I graduated in 2013 and was more so looking to have them be cautious/keep an eye out for behavior moving forward. They are taking this very seriously and I am unsure what to expect. I have no proof other than an account from a former student stating the coach was “bragging” about it a couple years after.
