What can I do if I have been falsely accused of vandalizing someone’s vehicle?

A claim was already filed with the person’s insurance company but I don’t know if a police report was filed. What should I do?

Assuming that you have insurance (auto or homeowner's) then you need to immediately place your insurance carrier on notice about the charges against you in writing. If you have none, then you need to consult with an attorney in your community who practices criminal defense. One can be found on attorneypages.com.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
