and it is found to be untrue, they are declared innocent of all charges/accusations. that the charges can not even be refiled at any point. Shouldn't that person be able to get some type of compensation back from the state? Just a question in a group got me thinking. A friend of ours , his family paid over 50 thousand to fight a false child sex criminal charge. he was found innocent . But there is no recourse for them. They have almost lost their home, he lost his job, his car, his home. And He was told he can only sue the complaining witness who made the false accusation for a total of 2 grand. That is it. I do not think this is right.

I don't know about your friends situation but in many cases the falsely accused can sue the other person civilly. Call a Civil Lawyer.
