What is the penalty for perjury?
My husband has recently been charged with assault on our neighbor. We moved here in November of 2012 and have continuously been harassed by her and her daughter. There are police reports that date back a couple of years or more stating that she harassed all others who have lived here as well. We are determined to see that she pays for lying under oath and making her answer for her lies because this has really taken a toll on our family as a whole. We have never been through this before and we wonder each day if we have any rights here and most importantly, if there is anything that we can do legally to protect our rights, innocence, privacy, and sanity. She has told our landlord several other lies about us that would hurt our reputation. Is it possible for us to file criminal charges on her for what she has put us through, not including the addition of a criminal charge on my husband's record, simply because the charge was filed?
