The statute of limitations has kicked in. He won't face any criminal charges.Men (and women) of law generally don't care about the consequences of their actions when they're fired up. I was dating a lawyer who's career had been going for four years at one point, I did something to anger him, and he whacked me in the face and gave me a black eye. I partly deserved in, but eh. I could have had his law license revoked, but I chose not to. He hit me, yeah, but I won't destroy his life over a mistake. My point is, people who've heavily invested their lives into the creation, enforcement or legal proceedings around laws are not perfect robots. Especially if they, like the father in this case, believe they haven't done anything wrong.
I just hope this guy burns for what he's done and the statute of limitations hasn't kicked in yet.
