False Accusations of Sexual Assault
It is a popular misconception that many rape and sexual assault accusations are false, meaning the victim has lied in order to incriminate the defendant. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, less than 10% of assault claims are false are baseless, so you should not expect the courts to dismiss this matter aside on the assumption that the alleged victim is lying. That said, false claims do happen, and if you are being charged for assault then you will need professional assistance clearing your name and demonstrating the weaknesses in the prosecution’s claim in court.
