Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Unfortunately, it sounds like you have quite an uphill battle. In order to have those who lied charged with any sort of crime, you’d need to not only prove that your brother is innocent, but that the parties involved maliciously framed him. If you can prove that, then I suggest that you talk to the Federal authorities in your area since it’s very possible that such a framing would be a violation of Federal civil rights laws.

Have I satisfactorily addressed your concerns? If not, then please feel free to ask for clarification.

If the information that I provided is helpful, then please remember to click the green accept button so that I will receive credit and compensation for my time. Positive feedback is always appreciated as well. Thank you and good luck!

Accordingly, please understand that (1) by answering your question(s) I am not acting as your attorney, (2) my answer(s) should be construed as general information only, and (3) our discussion is not an adequate substitute for an in-person consultation with an attorney.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
