What someone in his situation may wish to do is to:
(1) have her recorded admitting that she made this up. It is not unlawful to record someone without their knowledge provided that at least one party in that conversation knows that the conversation is being recorded, and this may be the person recording the conversation. Ga. Code Ann. § 16-11-66(a)
. If the prosecutor does not drop the charges, this recording may be used as evidence at trial
(2) have her go to the prosecutor
and admit the lie, wherein the prosecutor may drop the charges; and
(3) if necessary, get another attorney to push the two things above. If the accuser is reneging on their story, the defense attorney should be pushing to get this dismissed. So if his current attorney is not listening, then another should be retained to act on this, even if it means firing this one and retaining another.
