Wow, that's crazy. So, when were you, finally, acquitted? (You have 6 months to file a claim, against a governmental entity, to sue at the state court level...)
I'm sorry to hear about this situation, but I'm really glad that your lawyer was able to beat the charges. Sounds like she did an excellent job.
From the article I just read it seems like you were arrested in Dec 2011. When was the trial? Like the other attorney here has stated, the SOL is 6 months on these cases.
