My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ohio
Person A convinced a detective to file two child endangering charges against Person B for diaper rashes.
The detective involved knew the charges were false and were only filed after Person B made it known they were going to put that detective's fraudulent behavior in a separate case on blast. Date and approximate time Person B made it known: late in the evening of March 16. Date and approximate time of charges: morning of March 17. Proof of text messages is still available. Diaper rashes were never investigated and one of the diaper rashes was supposedly from November 6th, prior to any contact with this detective.
Person A and this detective submitted pictures of diaper rashes on children supposedly taken by the significant other of Person A. Date and time stamp of the photos were also submitted as evidence. The photo of the diaper rash from November 6th was taken in the evening, no identifying marks or facial shots of the child were included. Person B presented several pictures of the children having been with him/her, time and date showing the children could not have possibly been with Person A at the time he/she supposedly had this diaper rash picture taken by significant other. Detective did no investigation.
For the second diaper rash charge, Person B presented evidence to the court of a timeline based off of text messages between Person A and Person B showing, if there had in fact even been a diaper rash, it would have been at the fault of Person A. Question as to whether or not the picture for the second diaper rash was falsified was brought to light. No facial shots and no identifying features in the picture. The detective testified that he/she never saw the diaper rash, but instead had the significant other of Person A go to a separate room to take a picture of the diaper rash. Again, no investigation.
Person A used these child endangering charges to obtain a restraining order to prevent contact between Person B and their three minor children. Person A and their significant other lied under oath in two separate courts in regards to these diaper rash charges. Once in criminal proceedings and once for the restraining order.
What charges can be brought against Person A and their significant other? Can anything be done about this detective's misconduct?
I have left out any mention of genders to avoid any possible biased opinions. No back story to cloud judgement. Just plain and simple facts. Will gladly answer any questions you may have.
