Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I'm reviewing your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

No. It doesn't work that way. You're going to have to fight the case. The prosecutor believes the complainant and thinks they can prove it.

HOWEVER, if you beat the case, you can try to get him charged with filing false charges against you or sue him for malicious prosectuion.
