    circumstance and is illegal, where I live anyway. I have a friend who was charged with sexually assaulting a two year old. I know as a fact the crime did not take place. It was part of a feud and nearly cost this young man his life. The case was dropped one day before the trial.

    •  if a false police report was filed (0+ / 0-)

      I take it the complainant was arrested?

      •  The conmplainant was not arrested, and the reason (0+ / 0-)

        is that he said that he was confused and maybe didn't understand what took place. He ended up in prison for something else, and his wife left him over this incident. Whether this counts as "statistical data" or is merely anecdotal, I still had to pay $10k for a lawyer for him.
