Our expert says:
Hypnosis is about the most unreliable possible way to help anyone remember, which is why "memories" produced under hypnosis are not admissable as evidence in any civilized court of law. Whatever it produces is so heavily contaminated as to be totally unreliable, and can actually make it easier for a perpetrator to escape --- it could enable you to "remember" details that actually didn't happen, and make it easier for your statement to be apparently disproved and rejected.
If you were abused ( and you seem to be saying that you spent years trying NOT to remember the events, while remembering them painfully well, which is in fact typical of survivors of all forms of trauma ), you don't need hypnosis or any other method to try to remember all the gory details --- there isn't a single shred of good evidence in exitence that that is EVER useful. Check with legal advice as to whether it is even possible, whatever evidence is available, to bring a successful case at this late stage --- it may well be that the matter has "proscribed" and that a court would not entertain hearing such a matter. That may seem to you to be awfully unfair, but after some years, let alone 15, it can be impossible to hold a trial fair to either of you or to reach firm conclusions.
Struggling to remember details may make you feel very much worse, without producing benefits --- unless there is OTHER evidence, it would still be your word against his, and sadly you probably would not prevail in court.
What matters above all is doing what would be best for your own health and happiness. See a good counsellor of the practical, CBT-oritnted type, because analytically-oriented therapists tend to make such matters worse and spend years and a fortune of costs, doing so. You CAN be enabled to feel better, stronger, and to get the best revenge of all, by living a long and happy life despite what that bad person did to you.
I applaud your wish to make sure that no other little girl suffers at his hands --- and that (a) may not need the court case you are picuring, and (b) might be better achieved in other ways. A detective sniffing around could well frighten him off ; and a report to the police / child protection services might also enable them to keep an eye on him, to an extent that could be useful
