The elements of defamation are:
1. A false statement made by defendant;
2. of or concerning plaintiff;
3. published to a third party;
4. causing damages;
5. If the person is a public figure or the matter is of public concern, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant either knew that the statement was false, or that the defendant acted with reckless disregard for the truth (this is called malice).
If you have no one who will support your version of the story, then the prosecutor could sue you for defamation and it would simply be your word against the prosecutor. This means that it wouldn't be very difficult to show that your statement was false, because there will be absolutely nothing and no one who will corroborate your version of the facts. This makes your risk extremely
So, if you don't have anyone or any objective proof (photos, or video or an audio recording), then trying to tell the world about what happened could end up backfiring on you in a big way. After all, the prosecutor is a lawyer, so it wouldn't take a lot for him to file a lawsuit, and you would need to hire a lawyer to defend yourself -- which could cost you a small fortune.
Sometimes you have to save your bullets and wait for a better opportunity to do battle. Otherwise, you could run out of ammo and get killed before you have any chance at victory.
Hope this helps.
