Accusations often lead to messy consequences, especially when your point-of-view is completely dismissed, disbelieved, and/or misunderstood. When you’re accused of something you didn’t do, not only do you try your absolute hardest to prove your innocence and show proof that you’re not guilty, but you can’t help but feel saddened that your perspective is being ignored and belittled. Plus, you feel hurt that people presume you’re a big fat liar, let alone, believe you’d stoop as low as to commit a crime such as a sex crime, for instance.
In the case of a false accusation related to a sex crime, we urge you to fight hard to prove the truth if you truly want justice to be served. Without putting up a fight, you could end up behind bars, with a big monetary fee, or even with a title as a California sex offender.
Wrongfully Accused of Engaging in a Sex Crime? Remember: You’re the Victim, Not the Offender
In the eyes of the courtroom, when you’re wrongfully accused of a crime such as a sex crime, you’re, of course, assumed to be the one who’s guilty – even before you’re actually deemed guilty – regardless of the whole “innocent until proven guilty” legal principle.
In reality, when you’re being wrongfully accused, you’re actually the victim as you’re being put in a position that you don’t deserve to be in and, in some cases, the person accusing you from the start wants to see you suffer, hence why they intentionally put you into this legal mess. Other times, however, they may have mistakenly accused you.
Either way, you are a victim in this case, meaning you must do your absolute best to play both offense and defense in court if you genuinely want to show everyone that you’re not who they think you are. You deserve to be heard out and to be believed.
