He needs an attorney. If there is credible evidence this crime was never committed, he will need to bring this up as a motion before the court. Telling the state is fine...but I suspect they are not in a hurry to resolve this. Much better to file a motion with the court to demand action.
If he can afford an attorney, have him retain one and start the process. If not, try here
Again, waiting for the prosecutors office may take forever. To move this along you need to file with the courts. And for that, you need an attorney.
