"she chose to sue" because that is all she could do on her own.

Criminal prosecutions are done by the County Attorney, not individuals. And County Attorneys are elected, and need contributions from rich, powerful men to run their campaigns. So they tend to be hesitant about indicting them. Especially when the only evidence is the word of a young woman.

Nothing surprising about this,
