How do I go about getting the Harris County Prosecutor to file charges against them for committing perjury to change the outcome of a jury trial?
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 1 year ago

1) You can't prosecute perjury in Texas. It can only be prosecuted by a District attorney. You can file a complaint with the police and/or the District Attorney's office but that's all you can do.

2) and 3) are statements, not questions.

4) The best way to handle it is to get your lawyer to file a complaint. If they won't, then you can ask the police to take a formal report. If that still doesn't work then you can ask for a new trial (if you're still within 30 days of the judgment being signed) and base it on the perjury. That will get the judge's attention and the judge may ask the DA to look into it. If you are outside the 30 days then you can file a Motion to Modify and mention the perjury in the motion. However, the perjury won't actually be grounds to modify since it occurred prior to the judgment for custody being signed. You would only mention the perjury in the hopes, again, that the judge sees it and asks the DA to look into it.
