Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Even though she reported you, an investigation
would still need to be conducted. Evidence would have to be gathered and it would need to be determined if there is enough to make an arrest. The case would then be turned over to the State Attorneys office to file and prosecute. If that happens, you will want to retain legal counsel or ask to be appointed the public defender. A demand for discovery will be made and that evidence will be turned over for review. It will be at that time, that you and your attorney can raise any defenses that you may have and fight the case, taking it to trial
. The burden is on the State of Florida to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt and if it is in fact not true, they may have a hard time doing so. You can certainly testify and you can also call your ex as a witness to testify if she reported you, with the goal to discredit and impeach her credibility. Her mere allegation alone without any evidence to support it should not result in charges being filed.
