Hello I am a lawyer with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
Do you want to claim compensation or are you trying to stop her doing it to anyone else? I take it that the police have not charged her with perverting the course of justice.
No they did not. I want to stop her doing this to anybody else. If I claim compensation she would not be able to pay. But I would claim if I know that I am going to be pid somehow
There is very little that you can practically do in this instance. You have been the victim of a crime but the police have decided not to do anything about it. If they had charged her and secured a conviction then that would have been on her record and anyone accused by her in future would have been able to see that she had made false allegations before. This is the only real practical protection form future allegations that there could be on these facts but unfortunately the police have decided not to proceed against her. Your daughter has made a false allegation but if she has only done this to the police and there has been no broadcasting of the allegation there will be no actionable civil wrong that you can pursue. I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the correct answer I am afraid.
I have nor received an answer yet.
