  • My ex wife whom I recently divorced has fabricated assault

    My ex wife whom I recently divorced has fabricated assault charges against me...how should I proceed?
    KEY FACTS:
    After our divorce I proceeded in having sex with her..about 2 times before the incident
    3rd time I went to her place to have sex, a man came out with a gun pointed it at me as she assaulted me.
    I ran, called the police jumped the fence and drove home. I told the police that there was a black man there with a gun and I didn't want to risk getting shot by both him or police so I left.
    I made a police report about the incident and 3 months later I get a call saying she pressed charges against me for assault. She says she has pictures and everything.
    I'm suspecting the guy that pulled a gun on me is the one that beat her but now she's falsely accusing me.
    She was drunk the night of the incident...she admitted it in text messages and voicemails. (in which I still have)
    Should I just gather my evidence and present it in court (if the D.A) picks it up??? What are the chances of the D.A picking it up??? Should I file separate charges of false accusations??? PLEASE HELP!
