What You Should Do If Falsely Accused of Rape

Well, it depends on the nature of the crime.  In criminal complaints, it is a crime to battle a false complaint that you know is false. They could seek prosecution under that realm, but whether you want to seek civil penalties and go after someone for defamation, that’s another avenue.

The Constitution requires that the state attorney and the government have to prove guilt. It’s not our job to prove innocence and it’s very hard to enter false allegations to disprove a lie. What we can do and what we will do is punch holes in the fabrication of false allegations by showing the motive, showing the bias and showing in a lot of times, depending upon what the allegation is, that it cannot be factually possible. Someone saying that this took place at this date and time, and we have proof showing that the person is in a whole different part of the state or the country when they say it happened, that draws red flags right there.
