In college, I was falsely accused of sexual assault. I had no idea where to turn. I had no hope for my future. I had no similar experience to draw from in making the life-changing decisions I faced over the coming months.
When I was exonerated of the false allegation against me, I knew I would dedicate my life to defending the falsely accused. I know how it feels to be falsely accused. I’ve sat with hundreds of clients who felt the same lost, hopeless, ignorance I dealt with during my false accusation.
I’ve found time and again the remedy for those terrible feelings is information. I’ve also found in my practice that many people who are falsely accused receive precious little information from their attorneys and collect inaccurate and misleading information from non-attorneys and the internet. The idea for this book originated from my desire to educate those falsely accused. I want to bring to light the avenues and defenses available to them so they can assert their rights and fight back against those who seek to destroy lives.
