You can contact the district attorney's office and see if they will assist. Most DA's offices have a victim coordinator.
Also, you should speak to a civil lawyer about filing suit for the damage to your vehicle.

Sure. If you think about it, I'm sure you would not want to be convicted of a crime if there were no evidence to prove that you did what someone said you did. Of course, sworn testimony given under oath IS evidence. In other words, if there are witnesses, they might be able to provide enough evidence to justify filing a case, but if not, no DA is going to file a case she doesn't think she can prove.
Mr. Guest is right on both counts. Most prosecutor's offices have a victim and witness coordinator who should be willing to meet with you and go over the details of the situation. And, a civil attorney can evaluate the strength of a potential suit for damages against the people you believe are responsible.
This answer is intended to be taken as general information and not as specific legal advice. You should always consult a qualified attorney and make him familiar with all the relevant facts in order to get proper legal advice. Every case is different, and they must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. David N. Smith Austin, Texas firstname.lastname@example.org (512) 457-0100
