Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I suggest, you can go to the Magistrate Court Commissioner and file a Statement of Charges. In the statement of charges, you will state what has occurred. The false report being file, the sworn statement under penalties of perjury, etc.
Once you do that, based on the probable cause that you have in your statement of charges, the Magistrate will issue a summons for those criminal charges of false police report and also the perjury.
She will then have to appear in court. You will be represented by the state and the District Attorney will prosecute as they deem appropriate
Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please let me know here. Otherwise, I would appreciate a Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time.
​Thank you

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
also can I make her pay for my loss of wages and hotel fees.
Lawyer: Sam, Attorney at Law replied 3 years ago
HelloThank youI suggest, it appears to be a continuing course of conduct and if the court dismisses this matter, too, then you can mention to the court that you feel you are being harassed. Request the court to address this behavior and reprimand the party that criminal harassment charges can be filed if she continues.You can then request the court order your legal expenses, including your hotel to attend the proceedings, be paid for in the way of restitution to youHowever, if the court does not do that, then I suggest that you will want to sue her in Small Claims court for those expenses.

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.
