@veggiemom1436 Just some friendly motherly advice (actually, not friendly, very pissy)
You burnt many bridges, sweetie.
If you ever think it’s funny or a good idea to falsify a police report & tell the police your aunt, my best friend, told you I was going to kill my children & myself, you might want to think twice. It’s a misdemeanor or felony. More on that below.
My husband and I are broken. Writing is cathartic for me & nosey people get their fix, which is fine by me.
Kids, teen-adults, you may be super angry at your parents. You may think they aren’t treating you fairly. But they love you more than anything and want the best for you. My daughter left this house with me as a parent first, best friend 2nd & now we have no choice but to legally evict her. Her family members saw a side of her that they’ve never seen.
Side note: I am not fond of police, but thankfully the Powell police were amazing in this situation and offered their help to us. They knew after talking with her that she was not being truthful. One step in front of another from here on out.
The Consequences: A Misdemenor or Felony Charge
Often, the result of a false report is the obstruction or hindrance of a police investigation. Depending upon the jurisdiction, a false police report may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Misdemeanor charges may result in jail terms of one year or less. Typically, the defendant must also pay fines. If a person is charged with a felony, they may be looking at more than a year in jail and substantial fines. The person who made the false report may also be liable in a civil suit, such as if their report caused damage to another’s reputation.
