Criminal charges can be filed by the state, not the person about whom the minor testified. Charges should be filed immediately upon discovery of the alleged perjury, and they wouldn't wait until the minor turns 18.

You can sue the person in small claims for the value of the tools. Probably won't collect on this kind of a person. Suggest you don't loan a tool you want to keep in the future. Consider such a loan a give away. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
