Press charges? Not likely. You could ask the police to prosecute. But since the police have discretion (meaning they do not have to investigate any particular repot of misconduct) they may very well refuse to take the case, telling you to use the civil courts.
And if your roommate damages the property? Costing you money ? You can sue the roommate to recover the money you lost. And, you could use small claims court
Small claims is a true "peoples court". The formal rules of evidence and procedure do not apply. So you can represent yourself (no need to hire a lawyer).
The process is simple enough. You head to the county court (the county where the roommate moves to) and talk to the clerk of the court. They can get you the forms needed to start. You file the claim, serve a copy on the defendant and wait for your day in court.
In court, be prepared to tell the judge what happened, and bring in copies of any evidence that supports your case. IF there are witnesses who can testify about what happened? Have them come as well. At a minimum you would need to prove how much money this cost you (so evidence that shows the damages and how much you had to pay)
Bot***** *****ne: it is not likely the police would prosecute, but you can sue.
