She can absolutely claim it was, but the real question is whether it will stand the scrutiny of the police, State Attorney's Office and a jury. I would strongly advise you against making statements to law enforcement or anyone else concerning the situation. Even the most innocent comments can be changed or manipulated later in your case to be used against you. My firm offers free case consultations in these matters, we are available if you have further questions. Our office line is 813-830-2261. Good luck.
This answer does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship or constitute attorney advertising. Rather, it is offered solely for informational purposes. The facts of each case are different and unique, it is critical to consult with qualified counsel with whom information can be shared and assessed under attorney-client privilege, so that competent and quality advice can be obtained on which you can make informed decisions
Anyone can make an allegation. She can allege sexual battery but as mentioned here, it is whether the case will pass the scrutiny of the police and state attorney's office. If she goes to the police it will likely be a he said/she said case but the phone call to the friend, if it was immediate and emotional could be a problem down the road depending on what was said. Obviously, your defense is that she consented and you should keep mind of the timeline of events and things that were said. It may be a good idea to contact an attorney for a free consultation on your specific facts and before you make any statements to police or state attorney investigators.

i agree with my colleagues. i also want to add that you should not discuss the facts of the case on a public internet forum like you are
An attorney/client relationship is NOT established simply by virtue of The Law Offices of Evan M. Kleiman, P.A. answering any questions herein. Such a relationship will only be established by a formal agreement between the parties.
I weigh in only to add emphasis to the caution about putting details out on the Internet. I would also caution you to not discuss this with anyone other than an attorney. Need I mention Face Book?
