In response the question of losing one's job...
Here's the harsh reality. It depends on your line of work. If you are accused, even without conviction, and even without being charged, it can end your current job and prevent you from continuing in any career that requires working with children or vulnerable people if you DBS check contains "soft" information that still makes it sound like you are of suspicious character in some way.
It can also result in your partner's job being lost if they too work in the similar areas of work.
This is the main reason I tell everyone and anyone to ALWAYS be in a Union and check your union cover includes funding for legal cover. A duty solicitor will be fine for initial arrest interview but you will need to hand over to a specialist.
It is scary, it is isolating, but if you can at all trust anyone to help you through it, then make sure you do. Take ALL offers of seeing your GP (do it anyway, go and let them know what you are going through) and/or counsellors. You might say "I don't need that", but you will and you do. Stress is a killer. Depression is a killer, PTSD can even be on the horizon.
Finally, sorry to be a gloom, but ANY idea you have of you accuser EVER facing consequences or repercussions for what they have done.... forget them. Just focus on you, and get through it.
