Well this is a weird situation & im kinda shook up. a friend of mine has a crazy possessive ex, he doesn’t want to be with her anymore & broke from her over a year ago. She harassed him for a while & just recently she has went to police saying he raped her & this bit really shook me she has said I joined in... the only interaction I had with her was me saying nice to meet you, that’s it! Like how can someone just be allowed to make any serious allegations like that with zero evidence and full on knowing you are making up lies. What a truly disgusting thing to do. Evil nasty person.
Anyways my friend was interviewed, he said her statement was full of lies and he picked it apart & they asked for my name and number but haven’t called. Btw the sex they had was consensual, my friend is like a really timid harmless person, she’s just angry he don’t want to be with her, she also seems tapped in the head from what he’s said.
I’m really stressing, what hurts more is knowing that this is so so unfair and wrong.
I’m trying to ease my mind so I’ve got a question, can someone charge you with rape with zero evidence?
Like I’m thinking no way they can otherwise I could go out tomorrow and claim any random person raped me, like that’s totally ridiculous.
I have bad anxiety so this is really messing with my head 😔

If your name is clear, you have nothing to worry about. Innocent until proven guilty. 🙂

What I don’t get is why is she also trying to drag me into this? For saying hello nice to meet you, wtf? What really annoys me is she knows 100% that she’s lying and won’t be punished for it

No, you cannot be charged with rape with zero evidence, otherwise like you said, anyone can go to the police tomorrow and claim rape. It’s like any other case and trial, you need evidence. If there are no evidence towards your friend, he will be fine.

I think I scared myself when reading online on forums where I seen some people claiming they got charged with no proof. I hope you are right, this has really shook me.

Welcome to the "metoo" era. She will, of course, not face any consequences.

I’m trying to keep reminding myself that I shouldn’t worry as I know I’ve done nothing wrong but my anxiety is somehow making me worry like I have to prove I’m innocent or they are gonna try push it with no evidence. Maybe I’m being too paranoid, it’s just a *****y unlucky situation.

You won’t be charged and neither will your friend. As you say, her statement was a pack of lies and picked apart. No way the CPS would recommend this to go to trial, you’re safe. It really is vile and horrendous the lengths some bitter and vindictive exes will go to. Makes me sick thinking there are people who actually do this crap.

Yeah tell me about it, I feel so angry and sad at the same time, yet there’s nothing I can do. I’m really worrying like could something come of this even though I’m totally innocent. What kind of person does this to someone who only said hello. The worlds so messed up. Like I’m gonna be stressed over this for the coming months for doing nothing & as you said she’ll walk free with not even a fine. Ridiculous.

The law needs to be updated to dish out serious penalties to those who make false allegations as these can destroy lives.

Thank you. It’s just weird I don’t feel safe, it’s really messed with my head. It is sick, tbh it’s put me off relationships or approaching women, like I literally only said hello nice to meet you and I get hit with this **** 😔

How can I not worry about this? Even though I know I’m innocent I feel so worried & under threat somehow, I find it so tough.

Depends on the police and the CPS. They can take the case to crown court regardless of evidence. It's then up to the jury to decide and for the judge to dismiss or sentence you. With regards to false rape accusations - nothing will happen to the female. This is pretty standard since the case is you defending yourself over a rape claim. You can choose to sue but it's expensive and time consuming.

Also any female can make a rape claim. Regardless of evidence the police must still take it seriously. You'll likely be arrested and then released on probation - no contact with the victim - and pending trial to defend yourself if it goes to crown court. Sadly that's the reality. The system is abused quite a lot and the legal system is against you from the beginning.

Consult a solicitor immediately. This is no joke.

Ok wow this wasn’t the answer I wanted but what I feared. How can this be allowed? Like going to jail for saying hello to someone? Wtf.

My friend has already been interviewed, they asked for my number but haven’t called. My friend said he’s attorney thinks she has no case. Surely they can’t take people to court over someone just saying they were raped with zero evidence.

Going to jail at the police station is a security measure against the supposed victim until the police interview you and decide how to proceed with the rape claim. As I said, the police must treat all rape claims the same even if there's no evidence - because some claims will be true. It's a very serious thing and you need to consult a solicitor asap.

You will only be charged and sentenced if the case makes it to crown court and you are unable to defend yourself. It's usually a he said she said situation as there's rarely any evidence in many cases - but you are still at adisadvantage.

Consult a solicitor. Asap. Do not speak to the police without your solicitor present. They are not on your side and must remain impartial. I repeat, do not speak to the police without your solicitor.

the burden of proof is beyond reasonable doubt in a criminal trial. that means a jury must be certain there is no other explanation for the incident and so the CPS will not prosecute if there's little chance of conviction because it's not with it. only 1.5 percent of reported rapes lead to charges, so stop panicking.

I had something of a similar nature happen to me. It wasn't as serious as yours, but this girl whose sexual advances I turned down spread some outrageous rumours around school and everyone believed it without a second thought. Years later, I'm still traumatised. Final Fantasy is correct. Contact a solicitor and collect any and all evidence against her. They have committed serious crimes (perverting the court of justice + wasting police time) which could potentially follow. You are also able to sue her following the investigation, which if you are able to do, I recommend considering. Defend yourself, then look to gain justice (otherwise this will eat away at you for years).

Don't let her get away with this. Scum.

But I haven’t even been contacted? My friend was given a free attorney & the attorney said if the police contact me to contact him.
They have zero evidence with me as I don’t even know her, we don’t talk or nothing, she doesn’t have my number or anything. The only interaction we had was me being introduced to her by my friend who she was dating, that’s it. I don’t understand how I could be possibly convicted when it’s just a made up lie with no evidence?
also I don’t have money for a solicitor and I might not need one if I’m not even contacted. Surely people cannot be prosecuted with no evidence as thats just wrong on so many levels.
