You can be prosecuted, but the question is will you be prosecuted for it?
No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia
I do not think you can be prosecuted for this. I do not think whatever communication at issue was confidential if there were other witnesses present.
As an individual, you cannot prosecute someone for perjury. A district attorney or city prosecutor can do so but rarely do. Perjury probably takes place 100 times every day in every courthouse in the country. I literally have never seen someone prosecuted for perjury in 14 and a half years of practice. I have read about it only. Saint Peter may take care of it when your perjurer arrives upstairs.
I think the remainder of your issues really deal with a civil matter and not a criminal case unless the DA picks up on the case. If you have not contacted the police yet, you should.
Damn, I am glad to hear about St. Peter, in 40 years I have only heard of two prosecutions for perjury, although I have witnessed it at least once a week. Lawyer up!
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and have practiced 39+ yrs. I can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practicein Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. I give only appointments over the phone., these services do not create an attorney client relationship. My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth, I use common sense as well as the law. Other state's laws may differ and I would appreciate it if you feel like marking my answers helpful or best. There are a lot of really good attorneys on this site, I will do limited appearances which are court documents , less expensive.
They are admissible in criminal court, provided the appropriate foundation is laid. Hire a locally experienced criminal defense attorney and resist the urge to discuss your matter further with anyone other than your attorney.
