Hi, my story is a little different.
I feel the whole system is affected by those who make false allegations. It makes it all differcult for the victims to.
I am a victim and would like some advice from those who have been falslry accused.
My ex was violent and controling to me. He is now facing charges of coercive control, assualt and rape.
Basically he assaulted me as he thought I had looked at another man, which I hadn't, he then said I had to have sex to prove I still fancied him. I said I didn't want to, but he said I had to and proceeded even though I just lay there crying. I was terrified, and afterwards it lead to me being too scared to say no ever.
Now even though he has a history of violence, even towards his family, his family believe him when he says he is innocent. Social services got involved because of reports of abuse from him to me from the public and my child's school and my family. I nearly lost my child. It was that, that eventually gave me the strength and courage to leave him.
So of course now he is saying I have made the whole thing up as I was about to lose my child and I am saying this to make things look as if I wasn't at fault. Now I have loads of evidence of the control and violence. Also social services reports will show I was a good mum until I met him and their concern was because of him.
What worries me is the rape is my word against his. Although evidence of abuse will show sexual violence was very likely.
I am wondering if those who were innocent, was there other accusations such as violnce? How far did the case go?
I know a lot of rape trials fail because of the lack of evidence, not because the male was innocent.
He had denied everything in his interview, but of course now there is evidence for the violence and control, which shows he is lying about that.
My thoughts, sorry this is a hard anxious time.
