If someone's property has been taken, why should the victim of the crime do any jail time? If a victim reports a crime, and a crime is charged, for instance a charge of grand theft, there are many factors that go into determining if the defendant will do jail time. We have no facts, and the defendant's criminal history can be very important.

I do not think there is a form. Many people think that if you get a form to fill out you will not need an attorney. This is a big misconception. Libel and slander are civil causes of action, and one definitely needs an attorney to initiate these types of cases.

Get to an attorney. You will probably have to pay for one because they will not take a slander case on a contingency fee basis. It would not hurt to set up a free consultation with a personal injury attorney to find out whether you have a case.
