I am involved in a criminal case that is getting weird mainly because all the involved party's were using drugs. the accuser in a case filled out an restraining order had it violated the accused has been jail for 3 months on 7 felony charges including 2 counts of kidnapping two. She made multiple statements she has filled out countless victim assastance grants forms all with the same genral story and even went before a grand jury on this case . shortly there after she hooked up with a outlaw biker who is a member of a well known group. Now she wants to recant refuse to testify and it saying that someone made her make these statements. what I would like to know is what are the charges if any that can be leveled against the woman?

In Oregon, this is called Initiating a False Report (OR. REV. STAT. § 162.375). If she recants or claims she made it up, she faces up to 30 days in jail and a fine of no more than $1250.00. It is considered a Class C misdemeanor.
