I concur with @99PerCent, 100%
Happy it worked out for you.
I had a close friend down here that went through the same thing. Fortunately for him, she changed here story for maximum effect after the charges were filed, then changed it again on the stand and it was thrown out of court 7 days or so into his trial. He went through HELL over that and became celibate for over a year afterward.
LEO has to take her at her word at the time, even if they think she is full of shit, and let the court straighten it out, in the States.
So sorry it took so long for you to be cleared, but at least it happened.
@legalcanada: I had another friend that got into an altercation, on his own property, with his ex-wife's BF. He called the cops when regained consciousness. They saw his gun safe was unlocked and he somehow got in trouble to the point that he is never allowed to own a gun again, despite that the other party told the court (bragged, actually) that he had knocked Paul out and that he had never gone near his gun safe.
What really pisses me off is that about a year later, one of my 2nd shift employees got beat up in a bar. He went upstairs to his apartment and got his gun. He went back into the bar and threatened the guy that beat him up with his gun. Bartender called the cops. Not 6 months later, he is allowed to own a gun again. Makes me think Paul had his taken away permanently for being too stupid to grab his gun during the altercation.
Just another WTF?!? moment...
