Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience. What is your question?

Expert:  Nisha Jones, Esq. replied 3 months ago.

Good morning, I am a former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office, and I now practice Criminal Defense and Immigration law. First, if you are afraid of criminal punishment, you need not worry. It sounds like you definitely did not touch this other individual and that there are witnesses to the fact that the accusations are false. The Prosecutor's office will not be able to meet their legal standard in order to file charges against you, so I do not think you need to worry about that.

If you are wondering whether you have a case against this other person for emotional distress or lost wages, then that may be possible. I would advise consulting with a civil attorney in your area and giving them all the details to see whether there is enough for you to proceed with a civil suit. Many attorneys will give a free consultation. You can use google or other popular search engines like Avvo in order to locate an attorney in your area that you like. I hope that's helpful, please let me know if you have any other questions.
