My question involves defamation in the state of: Florida, Sixth Circuit
My estranged Wife and her adult daughter conspired with malice and forethought to file false charges of 4 counts of forgery and 4 counts of grand theft against me to detectives. Ms...... and Ms.....provided false statements under oath to detectives and the SAO regarding Ms......College student grant and tuition reduction checks, totaling approximately $ 8,000.00.
I was arrested and held on $ 70,000.00 bond at the County Jail, for six days. I paid a bondsman $1,200.00 and my Mother put up her home as collateral, to secure my release.
The SAO dropped the charges in after they received and reviewed exculpatory discovery from my attorneys before trial.
I was forced to retain attorneys to defend me from these false allegations, at a costs of approximately $ 30,000.00.
Bank of America deducted approximately $ 5,500.00 from my checking account where the checks were deposited.
I have not been able to retain or obtain gainful employment to support my 17 month old daughter, due to these false allegations. I have been dismissed from two jobs and have been refused employment on two other occasions.
Iím a Senior Project Manager with 20 years experience with base earnings of $ 120,000.00 per year.
Iím currently employed as a daily laborer and make $7.50 per hour
I have no more money for an attorney to file a civil suit. I went to the court house and did some research on torts.How many actions do I have? I need forms for this action and can't find them, where can I get them?.
I can clearly demonstrate that they lied in the original police report, to the SAO and during depositions.My step daughter actually signed a check, deposited it into her account and then wire transfered it to me.( she claimed in the original report that she had no knowledege that she was approved for the Pell Grant and that I stold the checks from the mail box)
I filed a police report the day after the charges were dropped and the detectives were apologetic and sympathetic to me, they now understand that they were lied to, but the SAO will have to admit they made a mistake and told me that I was being vendictive and they will not file charges against them......
How many actions do I have....How do I get forms to file this? What is the correct action? Slander/defamation/libel/false police report/malice etc??
Will some attorney help me right, a serious wrong...At least I can get a judgement against them for slander....
