Looking for Advice - False Rape Accusation


#1

so I just spent the last 4 days in county.. apparently the judge did not deem me a flight risk despite my somewhat spotty record, so she was gracious enough to grant me bail..and a fairly reasonable one at that (considering what im being accused of)

so my room mates threw a Halloween party which got pretty big.. all of the other parties around town had gotten rolled on, so everyone made their way to our house (which is pretty far away from others houses so we can be loud).

I had had a long day, so I decided to call it a night pretty early.. my room is detached from the main house, so its reasonably quiet. about 20 minutes after I got in bed, a girl (we'll call her Jane) pops into my room (totally wasted), says she's tired, and asks if she can lay down for a little bit. Im too tired to care, so I say "sure".

I wake up the next day with Jane basically sleeping on top of me.. one of her friends bursts into my room kinda hysterically, and begins to freak out when she sees us in my bed.. apparently her girlfriends who she came with had been looking for her all night and were freaking out because they couldn't find her.

long story short, Jane's boyfriend was also at the party, was tripping because he couldn't find her.. someone told her that she "slept" with me but left out the fact that it was in the literal, not figurative sense.

boyfriend is furious, yells at Jane, and breaks up with her. im sure im missing a lot of details. (this is all that my room mates were able to piece together now that im out of jail).

sooo... even though I don't drink, am a virgin, she woke up completely dressed, and the rape kit (yes...Jane got a rape kit done..probably trying to convince her now ex-boyfriend that she really was raped in a desperate attempt for sympathy) came back negative, I have been charged with rape, and have a court date.

im pretty pissed.. I don't have the slightest clue who this girl is.. never met her before. I don't want to shovel out cash for a lawyer, but I know if I don't, ill probably get "convicted" and get sentenced to 20 years like William Mcaffery (youtube it).

you know you lived in a pretty fucked up society when a girl can just cry on the witness stand and a guy gets sentenced to 20 years to life.. this must be that "male privilege" I keep hearing about.

any suggestions?

So how does the story go from “boyfriend is furious, yells at Jane, and breaks up with her. im sure im missing a lot of details.” to " I just spent the last 4 days in county"?

If you are convicted of rape (criminal sexual conduct) in my state you could be looking at some serious prison time. CSC is categorized in degrees 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Each degree carries a specific penalty based on the seriousness of the sexual assault. With out knowing exactly what she allegedly said occurred I wouldn’t be able to tell you exactly how much time you are looking at. This will vary from state to state but worst case scenario you could be looking at up to life in prison to the least being a couple years or maybe even probation. Additionally you may be required to register in your state as a sex offender for the rest of your life. A black Mark you don’t want following around. This is serious and you need to protect yourself to the best of your ability.

My advice: Get a good criminal defense attorney. Also DO NOT add specifics to your case on this or any other internet forum. I am sure this is an ongoing investigation so don’t put anything out there that could be used against you.

cops showed up at my door on the first and asked me to go with them to the station… I had done nothing wrong so I didn’t think anything of it…

they didn’t believe a word I said (girl cries, so guy MUST be guilty)… and I got booked

thanks for the advice… there really isn’t much in the way of specifics to the case… it really is THAT cut and dry. I couldn’t believe I got booked for it.

probably didn’t help that I told the officers that they’d be sorry

Yep. Troll. Plus the chance that the police are going to reveal the results of the rape kit to him is slim to none. You don’t show your cards to a suspect in a criminal investigation. Plus they wouldn’t have the results back from the lab yet to determine it was negative. They may have been able to tell there were no injuries but suspect DNA would not be known for some time. Its not like CSI where DNA comes back in 45 min. Can take months.

This isn’t all that funny.


#10

If true–and not a troll post–get a lawyer now and stop posting anything about this on public or non-public forums. Rape charges no matter how false and frivolous are not anything to fuck around with.


#11

A lawyer who is mentally retarded, who you found by asking the local homeless people for their recommendations would get you off this one.

Rape is a serious matter, both for victims and for the falsely accused. If you are indeed trolling - dude, eat a bag of shit. You have my abolute contempt.

In the unlikely case that you don’t… As much as I usually like to point out how often women get the short end of the stick in rape trials - dude, get a lawyer. I know someone who didn’t and paid for it.

I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would make up a story like this and post it to an internet forum. It spreads fear and makes the world an uglier place generally. Guys who read it will forget where it came from and just recall sketchy details: “dude, I knew this one guy, who was a VIRGIN dude, and he got charged just because some drunk chick fell asleep on top of him!”

If you are in trouble or get in trouble, OP, I would say you deserve it.

This thread is weird on several levels. OP gets caught trolling, admits he was trolling, then keeps responding as if he’s not trolling.

Even if he hadn’t posted during his alleged incarceration, it was pretty obvious he was trolling. OP has posted several times about his paranoia regarding alleged rape allegations. It’s one of the reasons he states he’s still a virgin. Why he would use the internet to somehow validate his paranoia is beyond me. Especially when so thinly veiled and has now backfired.

OP - I think you actually have some issues you need to deal with. It’s probably mentally unhealthy for a young 20 something male to abstain from sexual activity due to an unreasonable fear of alleged rape allegations. Add on to that a weird made up story for validation and I’m thinking you should seek some help.


#16

T-Nation would be the first place I go to for serious legal matters. lol.


#17

OP, please take some time to reflect on your life as a lying, attention-starved punk. I normally contend that people like you ought to be fucked, broken and driven across the land, but it may not be too late for you to turn it around.

this.

Dude, if you really are so weird that you’re abstaining from sex due to fear of rape allegations (wtf?) and your social life is so lacking that you need to post fucked up troll threads about really controversial topics for entertainment, then you’ve clearly got some shit you need to work through.

Or maybe not. Either way, this thread shows one thing for certain: that you’re a massive dickhead.

OP:

Hire an escort.

Fuck her brains out.

You’ll now be addicted to pussy.

You’re welcome

It’s obvious from his post history that he disdains women because he sucks at communicating with them. Kind of sucks at communicating with all people, really.

If this thread were real, I would have told him that his general attitude toward women is the likely culprit for the fake incident.
