My 16 yr old son had a one night stand with a 16 yo girl at a party when they had both been drinking.
He knows he was stupid but is now accused of raping the girl.
At the party a male friend of the 'victim' followed them upstairs and burst in while they were having sex, punched my son in the face & threw him down the stairs screaming at the top of his voice that my son is a rapist.
2 days later my son was arrested and was in the station for just under 11 hours spending most of the time in a cell.
He was bailed for 4 weeks, then had bail extended. We were told yesterday the case has gone to CPS for a decision on whether to charge.
I don't even know really what I'm asking but I am so worried, not sleeping etc and don't know what to do.
My son has never been in any trouble previously, got good exam results, now has a college place & good job training to be a chef and his life feels like it's ruined already.
How do I support him through this?
Any advice would be appreciated.
