Falsely Accused - part 2

Well, what to do...

Despite being able to prove where I was on the date of the initial allegation, the accuser has now changed her story to different dates.

Despite being able to show I was nowhere near Kettering on that date, I don't have anything more than circumstantial evidence to prove it.

So as a result, yesterday, I was "invited" to attend my local police station, and on arrival, I met the investigating officer from Northants and  was charged with:

1) Rape of a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 16 June 2016
2) Conspiracy to commit Rape against a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 20 June 2016
3) Conspiracy to commit Rape against a 37 yr old woman in Kettering on 21 June 2016

Astoundingly, the Police don't have a Co-Conspirator to charge, and apparently aren't looking for one. How can one conspire with oneself?

I have conditions not to contact my "victim" and not to go to Northants other than to attend court, and I'm due in court in a few weeks. Other than that I'm on bail - bail for Rape... The Custody officer made it clear that he couldn't see any valid reason not to, as I had attended the initial interview, and the Charge appointment, voluntarily.

Bail in Rape cases is, to say the least, unusual, and is an indication, in the words of my solicitor, that the CPS are simply taking a punt, and don't have enough evidence to pass either the Full Test or the Threshold test yet. Which is surprising, as my DNA is already on file, and if there was a match that would be good enough for most juries or magistrates.

Unfortunately, the punt is going to ruin my life, as Tannie has already decided that she can't be with me while this is outstanding. And, unsurprisingly, my employer has also decided that I must be put on suspension pending the result - thankfully it will be fully paid.

Knowing the stats, I am going to start winding down my life, selling my goods and preparing to be inside for a long time...

If I win, then I can use the money to rebuild abroad. If not, then it'll help life in prison be more comfortable.

Other than the facts of court appearances and similar, I'm not going to comment further on the case until it's over. I will try to post regularly, though, so that if I suddenly disappear, people will know why.
