Good evening. Who did he make this allegation to and why did he make it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My ex-husband made the allegation. I was in a car accident, and asked him to take the kids overnight while I recovered from the accident. Today, CPS came to my door and said it was for a drug overdose allegation. What do they do to follow up on this?

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 3 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information. There is going to have to be evidence to support this and the mere allegation alone, should not likely result in anything more then an inquiry. The reason I say this, is because if there was a drug overdose, you would have been admitted to the hospital. Moreover, if there was a car accident and it was suspected that drugs played a role, it would have been stated in the police report and you would have been arrested. CPS does need to take all complaints seriously, but if you speak with them, advise them of the situation and share with them that you ex is only causing problems and there is no basis to support his allegation, they will likely close the case. You may also want to offer to submit to a drug test, to show there is nothing in your system.
