7-3-504. Judgment against complainant; defects in complaint

(a) If the person complained against is discharged after hearing because no probable cause is found and if the judge finds that the complaint was commenced maliciously and without reasonable cause on the part of the complainant, the judge may enter judgment against the complainant for the costs of the proceedings and the reasonable attorney’s fees of the person complained against. If the person complained against is required to give recognizance the judge may assess the costs of the proceedings against him.

(b) A proceeding to prevent an offense under this article shall not be dismissed because of any informality or insufficiency of the complaint or other document in the proceeding. The complaint may be amended by the judge to conform to the evidence in the case.
