i need answers still!

What is the name of your state? Massachusetts

My rapist was found guilty both in criminal and civil court and lost both cases. I am afraid that he will sue me for "false charges" against him. I was just wondering what he could sue me for, how often this happens... basically any information on the process itself. Thank you for your help!

Convicted California Rapist, Mutilator Arrested
Thursday February 20, 1997 11:11:00 AM EST
TAMPA, Fla. - Lawrence Singleton, convicted in California
more than 10 years ago of raping a 15-year-old girl and then chopping
off her arms, was in police custody Thursday facing charges he murdered
an unidentified woman, police said.

Singleton, 69, served eight years of a 14-year sentence for raping
and mutilating Mary Vincent in 1978. When he was released on parole,
no community in California would take him and he spent almost a month
after his release living on the grounds of San Quentin prison before
moving to Florida.

Vincent testified she pretended to be dead after he cut off her forearms
so that he would leave. She managed to make her way to a highway where
she was spotted and taken to a hospital.

Wednesday night, a Hillsborough County sheriff's deputy called by
neighbors found the nude body of a woman in Singleton's home, a police
spokesman said.

Singleton, who was covered with blood when the deputy arrived, first said
he had cut himself chopping vegetables but the lawman saw a bloody body
of a naked woman inside the house, the spokesman said.

This guy sued the girl who's arms he cut off when she gave speeches about it.

If he was found guilty in both criminal and civil actions, what "false charges" is he alleging?

Have you actually heard from him that is going to sue you?

Excuse me for my mistake. I meant not guilty. HUGE difference. Sorry again!

He has approached myself about 'showing me what happens to snitches' and then went on about how he planned to bring me to court.

I am just afraid that he CAN do this and that I would be fighting a losing battle, considering the fact that he is innocent according to the law.
