Yesterday, I was please to be able to report on the dropping of the false criminal charge filed against Christina Pushaw by Rebekah Jones. It was a particularly sweet day for me because it was the eight anniversary of the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office dropping a false criminal charge that Brett Kimberlin had filed against me. In both my case and Ms. Pushaw’s there was nothing to provide an evidentiary foundation for the charges. Eight years ago today, I took the opportunity to tell Kimberlin You Must Construct Additional Pylons to support a real case.

In 2013, case like mine would be retained in the online case search system. Now, cases like Ms. Pushaw’s are automatically expunged when they are nolle prosed.
My case did wind up being expunged without my knowledge at the request of the State’s Attorney’s Office. I had to go to court to have it unexpunged so that I could sue Kimberlin for malicious prosecution.
