Most often when an alleged sexual crime occurs (e.g., sexual assault), the media zooms in on the victim and publicizes the pain and exploitation resulting from the crime. Allegations of sexual assault could also cause both the victim and accuser to lose their jobs or resign from top positions (assuming the crime happened between two adults). Take for example a recent case that involved a San Diego police officer. The police officer (whose name was not mentioned in the local newspaper) resigned after being charged with sexual assault of four women in his police car. Afterwards, another San Diego police officer was investigated for allegedly exposing himself to a woman he arrested. Though the sexual assault accusations were not proven as legitimate, so far two police officers have obscured their ranks in the police force.
Just as the victim of a sexual assault or any sexual crime has the right to testify against the accuser, the defendant can also prove his innocence and substantiate the allegations are not factual. A person accused and charged with sexual misconduct will have to face a possible prison sentence and the crime is shown on his permanent record for life. This can have life-altering consequences such as the inability to find employment and restrictions from living near children.
