Is Filing a False Police Report a Crime?

Well, YES, it is... and thank you for asking.


The offense prohibits one to make a false report of a felony or misdemeanor to a peace officer, prosecutor, grand jury, or any employee designated to accept reports of criminal activity from citizens.

The Law:

148.5. (a) Every person who reports to any peace officer listed in Section 830.1 or 830.2, or subdivision (a) of Section 830.33, the Attorney General, or a deputy attorney general, or a district attorney, or a deputy district attorney that a felony or misdemeanor has been committed, knowing the report to be false, is guilty of a misdemeanor. 

How does a prosecutor prove that a false report of a crime was committed under penal code 148.5:

To prove that the defendant is guilty of this offense, the prosecutor has to prove the following facts or elements:
  • Making a false report of criminal activity ((“Criminal activity” in this context entails a misdemeanor or a felony.))
The following actions are all examples of how one can make a false report:
  • making a report in person directly;
  • making a report via telephone;
  • initiating a report yourself without being solicited;
  • making a report after being solicited by one of the officials described above.
  • To any of the following authorities:
The following are all examples of the type of authorities a report can be made to:
  • peace or police officer
  • the Attorney General
  • deputy attorney general
  • district attorney
  • deputy district attorney
  • grand jury
  • or any employee who is assigned to accept reports from citizens with knowledge that the report is false.

Who can be charged with the offense of making a false report under penal code 148.5 in California? 

 Any person who makes a report knowing that it is false can be charged with making a false report under penal code 148.5 in california.
Did somebody at TSDC file a false police report in order to get me fired and to generate fear among the employees at TSDC?  Why YES!  Can you guess who?  Well, you won't have to guess.  I'm preparing a blog about this incident specifically and the spyware that was put on my computer.  We WILL get to the bottom of this and determine who the liar is and what motivated them to concoct a lie - right here on this blog.  Stay tuned...

It turns out, after collecting and reviewing all the evidence, that there appears to be a strong motive for the filing of the false police report beyond the one I initially identified in this blog. I will be blogging about this newly-discovered motive as soon as the court case has been conducted. It is going to get very interesting, dear readers, as we will soon discover what TSDC tried to do to "protect" themselves. I intend to demonstrate that TSDC was motivated to and in fact DID fabricate "evidence" after they terminated me. The reason for this will become obvious very soon. By filing a false police report, they took this case to a new criminal level. We will be in court in two weeks. Stay tuned dear readers... there is a LOT more to come.
