Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
1. Should I sue the police department for not representing the state and protecting me?
A: No, I'm sorry to say that you would almost certainly lose the case if you were to sue. Simply put, the police have immunity in these circumstances. A crime victim cannot win a lawsuit against the police for failure to protect or failure to prosecute.
2. Can this report be opened seeing that the report itself is fraudulent? What step should I take and how do I find a lawyer for this case?
A: You can find a lawyer by using one of the New Jersey Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Services: https://clarifi.org/node/244
However, I'm sorry to say that the police gave you the correct information when you recently inquired. First and foremost, the statute of limitations has passed, so amending the report is moot. Your wife could never be prosecuted. Second, if the officer who responded does not remember the incident, then he certainly cannot amend his report. He'd be making it up.
I am truly sorry for the bad news, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
