Walpole Law | Robert J. Walpole
Yes, after you have proven that it was false or a jury acquits you because the state has not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that you perpetrated the crime. Good luck.

Anything can be dismissed. Whether the prosecution will agree to it, is another story. If the prosecution filed an indictment, there must be enough evidence to support. It may be up to you to prove the charges are false, as you claim, at trial.
