My friend has been falsely accused of sexual harassment by a girl he once went out with. So this is everything that happened. She claims he tried to make her have a sexual intercourse with him. She has called the cops and reported him. She’s been inside of the house he used to live in but only once. Nothing happened inside. All she did was talk and asked him to have sex with her but my friend rejected her. The next day they went to a park and hung out and ended up kissing. Then the following day, he ended up cutting her off and that’s when she got mad. One month later was when she made the false report. My friend doesn’t live in the same place anymore. He only lived in that house temporarily with his cousin who owns it. He’s in another country while the cops came to visit his cousin’s house where he used to stay at a couple times. He’s really worried about what might happen when he comes back to the United States. The girl is 16. He’s 20. The girl’s parents know about them going out once but then again the girl might keep lying and making up stories about it. What’s the best way to deal with it? Can he just completely avoid the situation? Will the case close eventually?
