I'm going to piggyback on this, though I do fear we're going off-topic. When I was in college a guy I knew was accused of rape. People threw rocks through his dorm window, he was beat up at least twice, he was constantly harassed and dropped out of school, but word got back to people in his home town and his parents started getting harassed as well. Their lives became miserable very quickly, and they ended up moving the entire family to a different state to start over.
The accuser admitted to the police months later that everything was consensual, but she overheard a couple of her friends talking about her after they saw her go into the bedroom with the guy and she didn't want them to think she was "easy" so she told everyone she was raped. She made it all up.
Nothing ended up happening to the girl. The guy's family had to sell their house and start over somewhere else.
I have no idea what happened with AB, and you just don't know unless you were there. Lives can be ruined, or at least meaningfully harmed, from an accusation with no proof.
