You can pursue both options at the same time. In order for the criminal matter to proceed you would need to report the matter to the law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where it occurred. For a civil case you would need to file a lawsuit in the county where the assaulting party lives. I would encourage you to speak to an attorney prior to proceeding with the civil suit.

I am very sorry for your situation. This is an excellent question.

Many more details would need to be known in order to give you a complete evaluation and advise you in this situation.

I would advise that you contact an experienced attorney for a 1 hour consultation to address your objectives and concerns to develop a strategy to attack this important issue.

Again, I am very sorry for your situation and wish you the best of luck in bringing the matter to a successful conclusion. Sincerely,
