For most people, the thought of being falsely prosecuted for crimes is unimaginable. Being forced to defend against prosecution is harrowing enough, whether it is the thought of losing your freedom indefinitely or the cost and anxiety associated with going through a process that can drag on for months and even years. Some are even forced to spend the duration of the prosecution in prison, unable to make bail, which can truly feel like a presumption of guilt when we live in a society that is supposed to stand for the opposite. To a shameful degree, many prosecutions are based on some amount of false information, whether it is trumped-up charges on top of legitimate other charges to warrant high bail or charges that are all completely false.
For those that are lucky enough to beat these false prosecution charges and have their cases dismissed or are acquitted at trial, they are so glad to put the experience behind them that the thought of pursuing their own action against the very individuals responsible for their prosecution never crosses their mind. However, a dismissal and acquittal do not have to be the only reward. No person deserves to have false charges levied against them and have the justice system perverted so that officers and prosecutors can carry out their own malicious agendas.
