In Aug. 2003, I was falsely accused of a "Hit & Run" that absolutely NEVER happened! My accuser called it in after she had left the scene of the alleged incident, and fudged my license plate # to make it look like she couldn't read it as I drove away from the scene. I never saw this woman and didn't know her name when told to me by the cop that stopped me @ the same location 2 days later.
Here's the deal: I delivered newspapers to homes on a 60+ mi. route, plus 2 store drops. It was @ the 2nd store that this alleged accident took place. NEVER HAPPENED!
The day following this alleged incident (and B4 I knew I was to be charged with a crime) a woman pulled from the fuel island, directly in front of me, and didn't stop her vehicle 'til after I had stopped mine. Then she climbed out of her Expedition and yelled "Did you hit it?" I responded by yelling back "I don't think so," before I even took my car out of gear. We had both gotten out of our vehicles, even though I knew I hadn't hit her, as she even walked between the two. Though I didn't readily recognize this woman, I made mental note of her description and took down her license plate # as she had pulled away B4 me.
The cop delayed filing charges for a whole week, then B4 my scheduled preliminary hearing, he had it continued to a later date. At my hearing, the woman who accused me showed-up, and she was not the woman I saw who had pulled in front of me. This woman lied about the incident, plain and simple! And the story she told B4 the District Magistrate was different than the story she told the cop, which he wrote in his report. I didn't know I had to request a stenographer to make notes of the proceedings, so I don't have a record of her testimony @ the hearing.
I enlisted an attorney after this point in time, as the case was referred to court. I took photos of my vehicle and provided them to him before going to court. At my arraignment, the prosecuting ADA went outside and measured my bumper to compare the height with the damage to my accuser's vehicle. They were a match (by near.) Circumstantial, at best!
I found out before going to trial that the woman I had seen & my accuser are mother & daughter-in-law. So, I had my attorney subpoena the woman I had seen, to court. She was also a regular customer of mine at that time, and had been for over a year. I had seen her several times when I delivered to her home.
In court, my attorney advised me NOT to mention the "other" woman, and he did not call her to the stand, as I expect he didn't know what he would ask her, if he had. My accuser gave a third different version of what took place, and blatantly perjured herself, and got away with it.
NOW; I would like to know how long I might have to file charges against her for making false accusations, filing false police report, false identification, and perjury, as well as fraud, for collecting from my insurance company and then me, through the court. Her husband as a co-conspiritor (as he had to know her vehicle was damaged before she accused me of this charge, and 6 months had passed between the alleged accident and my trial, whereby, he had more than sufficient time to turn her in for wrongdoing.) Her mother-in-law as a co-conspiritor, and accomplice after-the-fact for her part in staging a false accident scene at which she disguised her identity by wearing a scarf over her head & dark sunglasses. Her father-in-law as a co-conspiritor for not reporting his knowledge of the sceme to defraud both me and the insurance company.
I am also interested in filing suit against all four of these people for lose of wages as a self-employed, lose of work due to lose of driving privileges, stress, and lose of employment opportunities due a criminal record background check.
I've already served 1-year probation while trying to remedy this situation on my own, as I can't afford another attorney, and now I can't get a job! I just sent my drivers' license to the state 2 weeks ago, for a period of 6 months. Driving is the I made a living until now.
CAN YOU HELP :!: :?:
