I've been falsely accused of sexual assault more than five years ago. I don't live in USA, but I want to be sure that I can go there without running the risk of going to court. I waited more than 4 months since the police report was filled until I left the country. I was always available for questions, they knew that I was about to leave the country and they have my current address.
I recently called the local police station the county sheriff and the state police and all of them said they had no records from the case. A officer from the sheriff's office volunteered to do a research within a week and informed that nothing was on any records... that the only person that could know something about it was the officer in charge of the investigation, and since I don't have his name, it's impossible to locate the case.
The thing that bothers me is that I called asking for the status of a case and they said the weren't able to find it. I believe they would have at least the copy of the police report showing the status of the case, but, again, they said they had nothing. I there a possibility that they are lying to get me back in US soil? How can I get a copy of that report?
Should I be worried or it's completely safe for me to go back to USA for vacation? I've read terrible things about how hard it is for innocent people to prove not to be guilty. The accuser had already history of a false accusation of sexual assault.
