I was assaulted and the defendant pleaded ''no contest'' in court and received a sentence of probation. Since the original incident, I have received death threats in the mail as well as being attacked again by an unknown person. I now am having to leave the state so the defendant is not aware of my whereabouts. I wanted to know if it is possible for me to sue him in a civil suit for compensation. I need to fund my move away from him and I think he should be responsible for that.
