If person1 accused person2 of committing a crime, but then person1 admits to actually committing the crime themselves, what would happen in court?
The charges against person 2 would be dropped and new charges, both for the crime and for submitting a false police report, would be filed against person 1. Person 2 would then sue person one for the damage to their reputation.
The defendant would be released and the plaintiff taken into custody and charged w/ the original crime as well as making false statements to police and perjury. A civil suit would most likely be filed as well by the original plaintiff.
person 2 would most likely be released and person 1 would be arrested
