Sexual Assault: The Accused Speak Out

Parents interviewed for this article echoed this description of the dramatic mental health toll of their sons’ experiences of being falsely accused of sexual assault on college campuses—even when they were ultimately found not guilty of the charges…“I was just in a rut. I moped around my house. I didn’t work. I gained weight. I didn’t want to go back to the gym and show my face because everyone thought I was supposed to be at school. I didn’t want to answer questions about why I was there [and not at school]. I thought about the situation and cried myself to sleep. I was borderline suicidal.” By Emily Shire
