An accusation of rape is like one of pedophilia - while it seems to wreck havoc on the accused’s life who may be innocent, the need to stop future such situations, if not cries out to heaven for justice, require a just society to investigate. The accusers will be tormented, as will the accused. It sucks all around.
The public needs to know so additional victims may come forward, if they exist. It just sucks all around. Hopefully people just pray for both accused and accuser for justice and strengthened faith and the resilience of the innocent party.
Hold judgement; let the investigators collect evidence.
