Redirecting your question to the criminal defense section of this service for attention by those attorneys
You should immediately contact the attorney he retained and provide him with this information. The court will decide if there is sufficient information for a hearing. It sound like you have a third party claiming that the victim recanted. Allegations of a victim recanting are suspect. Thus the suggestion of letting his attorney review the evidence.
There is no plaintiff in a criminal case. If the complainant in a criminal case has now recanted, contact the criminal defense attorney.
