What can I do when a female acquaintance lied and told the police I hit her during an argument?

We aren't girl/boyfriend. We had a argument and before it got nasty I left her home. She then called the police. They have been calling me and even been to my home. I work for school safety and am a private school head coach. What are my options? What should I prepare for? How do I get out of this lie? Where do I turn so i don't lose my jobs?

    What you need to do is three things. First hire a lawyer. Second do not talk to anyone about this. Third if there is a case filed then go with the lawyer and turn yourself in.

    Based upon the consequences of the case, I strongly recommend you hire an attorney. If you haven't appeared in court yet the Judge will decide on your first court appearance whether you can afford your own attorney or whether an attorney must be appointed to represent you. If the victim made a false story, you and your attorney will have an opportunity to present your case at trial and cross examine the girlfriend. The girlfriend might change her story, choose not to testify or crumble on cross-examination. You and your attorney will have an opportunity to discuss the strategy and all defenses available to you. Also, prior to the trial, the attorney should have an opportunity to discuss the case with the District Attorney or City Attorney. If the City Attorney or DA is convinced that the victim is making up the story, you have an opportunity to have the charges lowered or dismissed.

    Under no circumstances should you talk to the police about this. You are not obligated to return their calls and you shouldn't. If they come to your house or your workplace, tell them you will not make any statements. If criminal charges end up being filed, hire a criminal defense lawyer.
