Slander is verbal defamation and libel is written defamation. If someone states that you committed a crime (and they were at least negligent in stating it) and all the other necessary elements of defamation are satisfied then you would have a case. However, in order to prove defamation you have to be able to prove all of the elements of defamation. As to whether you might have a case, an attorney would need to evaluate all the facts of your situation. There is also the matter of whether it is even worth filing a case even if you have a valid one.
