If she reproted the alleged abuse only to children's servcies or the police, she may be protected from civil liability. But, if she told her allgation(s) to others, and it harmed your reputation, you may be able to bring a successful suit for slander. However, there is a short time limit in which such aclaim can be brought. Therefore, if you are considering such a suit, you should go personally to see a civil trial lawyer soon. Many offer a free or low cost initial consultation. They may be able to tell you if your claim would be better brought as a small claims case, even if they don't take your case.
