Please let me know more about your situation. Does it involve sexual harassment on the job? Some other type of harassment? Please provide additional details so we can assist you.
Yes. I can view your optional information now. While you should not have confronted her personally, but reported her harassment to the police, it is still not too late to do that since you have good evidence regarding the harassment. You may also want to file a petition for a restraining order against her. However, unless there is additional harassment, I would not do this, since you have confronted her. Wait and see if there is additional harassment before you do this.
You may also have a civil cause of action for defamation if you can show her statements about you are false and you have suffered monetary damages.
Please let me know if you need additional information.

Not from the facts you have provided. The worst they could do is file a motion for a restraining (no contact) order against you and your husband. These types of motions are routinely granted. However, at a hearing they would have to provide proof that the restraining order is necessary for their safety or well being, which they apparently would not be able to do. Therefore, it would be dismissed. Their suggestions to the contrary are likely meant to intimidate or scare you.
All the best to you and your husband.
