Thank you for both of your posts. I have recently been acquitted for a false allegation made towards me of rape. It caused great damage to my life, work, relationship, finances and my mental & physical health. Unfortunately now having spent time around police, solicitors and the court system I am aware that these types of false allegations are commonplace.
I seem to have gone through the same 'phases' as Peter, the ordeal of being arrested, the ordeal of having to wait for considerable time (it took 2.5 years to end) also the horror and disgust at the allegation itself has rocked me to the core. I am now also in a state of anger, I am working proactively to direct this anger positively. I had never had ANY dealings with the police before this allegation and I hope that I will never have to deal with them again.
The only advice I can give at this point is to make sure you have the best representation for legal guidance, please do not talk about your situation with anyone who you cannot trust implicitly, take good care of your health (both mental and physical) and unfortunately you will need to practice patience.
Please do not feel alone, the hurdle we face as the falsely accused is that we are scared to speak or reach out.
I hope the complainant in your case will retract their allegation and leave you in peace however if they do not then please stay strong and keep your head held high as you have done nothing wrong.
Again, thank you both for your posts and I will return soon to check on new posts.
Take care, Biz.
