You can potentially contact the PO and let them know that you were not telling the truth at the time you made that report.

However it most likely would not make a difference at this point.

The PO would not likely be sure what to believe, and would nonetheless have a duty to continue investigating the matter and verify whether your ex-boyfriend has in fact legitimately been completing his community service hours or not.

There really isn't any legal criminal trouble you can get into here.

It's not the same as making a false police report, perjury, or obstructing justice -- all of which can be charged as criminal offenses.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
