Hire a good attorney. That attorney will need to get discovery from the State and investigate defenses. There are numerous possible defense, example: alibi, there id ,however, little chance that an attorney on this forum can examine all those possibilities with you and without discovery. Get a good attorney to assist you.
Who told you that you had to prove anything? People frequently misunderstand the burden of proof in a criminal case. It rests solely on the shoulders of the state, a criminal defendant does not have to prove or disprove a single fact. With that in mind, a cross examination of your father would be your chance for your attorney to show that there is plenty of reasonble doubt in the case. Yes, he said, she said matters are brought to court all the time.
You need to get a criminal defense attorney on your side.

This sounds very defensible based on the limited facts, but you really need to sit down with a local defense attorney and give them all the details. Once they have all you information they can talk to the prosecutor about the discovery and your case and maybe resolve it. If not, you will still want a good local attorney to take the case to trial. This is not something you would want to try and handle on your own.
