You can file a slander lawsuit over anything you want. That is what is so great about our legal system. In fact, it is more efficient if you file 5-10 lawsuits at the same time. That way you can maximize your trips to the courthouse.

In addition to the idiotic "girlfriends ex says I'm a criminal" lawsuit it would be fun to try these:

1. My neighbor looks at me funny

2. Walmart was out of chewing tobacco so I had to pay double at the Circle-K.

3. This guy on the internets was making fun of my question.

If the criminal charges of rape and sodomy were subsequently dismissed (BUT, you don't say if it was dismissed WITH or WITHOUT prejudice!) I would say that you have no cause of action on the disposition of the criminal charges. However allegations of slander and discrimination are CIVIL chargesand are separate and apart from the criminal action. Contact a good civil attorney for advice.

Not really. Legal aid provides assistance for criminal charges. Slander is a civil matter.Added: If you are asking about FREE legal aid (i.e.: a Public Defender), no, Slander is a civil offense and public defenders only defend indigents involved in criminal law matters. If by "legal aid" you mean "free" legal advice - No. This is a civil matter, not a criminal matter.But you can certainly hire an Attorney and sue for slander. If they feel you have a good case, they may consider taking it on as a contingency fee basis. You will have to prove that this slander ruined your reputation or standing in the community. Unless it was broadcast over the air (TV or radio), you may have a tough time proving it, in which case it is doubtful you will recover even the costs - let alone get the justice you seek.
