Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
There isn't anything you can do - or should do - until she actually sues you.
If she does sue you, she will be the plaintiff, and the plaintiff has the burden of proof.
If you didn't actually throw anything, she can't prove that you did. If you had thrown something hard enough to break a windshield, it would have been found nearby, which I'm guessing it was not.
no the police officer didnt go back to where she said it happened.
Right, but the person who says you broke their windshield should have if they want to sue you.
so if she does try and sue should i get a lawyer then?
You can, but it will likely be in small claims court, which typically doesn't require people to have lawyers. A lawyer will end up costing you more than buying the person a new windshield.
In reality, the odds of this person suing you are probably low.
Can I help you with anything else?
is there anything that can be done about the police officer that flat out accused me of doing it .in her own words
and her telling the lady to sue me
You weren't written a ticket, so the officer couldn't have believed it, or not enough to do anything about it. The officer actually helped you by not writing the ticket.
okay thank u so much i guess now i can sleep a little better now . money well spent!!!
Glad to help. If I can't help you with anything else, please click the ACCEPT button. Good luck.
