Falsely Accused

Well, here's a thing.

A woman of about 35-40, who I knew as a child, has been to the police to accuse me of - something.

I don't know what I've been accused of. I do know it's being investigated by the Sexual Offences team of three different police forces, including my local force, and my MAPPA officer is aware of the allegation.

My local police force has, three times, been asked to check I am OK, not harmed, not dead etc, and this is because my accuser has stated that she "did me harm" when I did whatever I did to her.

Worth noting is that in 1995, she accused me of something too, and when this was investigated by police, there was found to be no case to answer. On that occasion, I was accused of Rape, in a place I provably was not, as I was in Germany when it was alleged to have occurred.

Now, interestingly, she says this latest thing occurred in Kettering. And that she has been in contact with me on more than one occasion, having met with me in Kettering several times THIS YEAR...

As readers of this blog will know, I moved from Kettering to Milton Keynes in May 2013. And from Milton Keynes to my current location in June of last year.

I use Google Maps as a Sat Nav system, and this records my journeys. I am able to log into this on the Internet, and then see the dates and times of journeys, including stopping points etc. So I can see that I haven't been to Kettering since May 2013. and, more importantly, I can prove it.

Not only that, she accuses me of possessing a specific vehicle. I haven't owned a vehicle of that type since 2006, when it was seized by Police prior to my Remand, and never given back.

More importantly, I haven't had any contact with this person since 1995.

Now, as people know, if you are accused of significant offences, you get a knock on the door at the crack of dawn. Yet, not only has my MAPPA officer visited to calmly discuss these allegations, but so have the two police forces involved in the investigation - Northants where it is alleged to have occurred, and Leicestershire, where she lives. The investigating officers have asked me broadly if I will be able to recall my movements, and let them have access to my phone to prove contact or lack thereof. I am of course, completely happy to co-operate.

In other news, a person claiming they are this person has contacted me on twitter, claiming to know where I am, and that I have ruined her life. Given this, I have, of course, reported this threat to police.

But what to do next? I'm settled and working where I am, I'm happy here, I have neighbours who in some cases DO know, but don't care, and I have a MAPPA team I can work with. But I also have someone from the past trying her hardest to get me thrown back in prison, while the Police seem to be accepting that it's astonishingly unlikely to be true.

Whatever else may be the case, I have always admitted any offences I get caught for - there have been a few other than my "big" conviction, nothing significant, nothing worthy of custody. But this is an allegation which could put me inside for many years, and I know it is untrue.

What to do?
