But they're not going to prosecute him. I don't know how to deal with this. I feel like its my fault...

It is NOT your fault. You did not deserve this. I volunteered for a Rape Crisis Center and have over 40 hours of training in Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. I hope you will be able to get some confidential counseling. I'm here if you need to talk.

I'm so sorry.  Did they give you a reason why he wouldn't be prosecuted?  Did you just file a police report?  I would contact the prosecutor's office too.
