This isn't a traffic violation issue, and you only asked a bunch of rhetorical questions vs. questions about the law.
You were (and perhaps still are) free to file an appeal of your conviction. I presume you had NO witnesses to your activities at all that day.
"does this mean if i am mad at someone i can say they were drinking and driving and later a cop goes to their house and they are at that time sitting with neighbors drinking they could go to jail and be charged with a DUI???"
I think you know the answer to this.
Sounds like once you're through with addressing this conviction that you also should talk with a local attorney about a defamation suit against the liar.
"what else can heresay cause......a murder charge??"
Yes, though obviously a prosecutor would be stupid to pursue such a case based on one person's assertion if there was no other evidence.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
