She is accusing me of family/domestic violence because she says I broke a windshield in the moving truck while in Texas. I have no proof that I did not do this as the glass was webbed from a rock that was thrown by a vehicle in front of us. I spoke with an officer the next day and told him what happened but I do not remember what I told him or if I said anything sarcastic about the windshield being broken. The divorce will be in Texas where she will probably try to seek a conviction for family violence so she can get alimony. If I told the officer that I broke the glass, which I didn't but can't prove, can I be convicted?
