I was recently falsely accused of rape/attempted rape. Sally (using fake names for obvious reasons) the girl who claimed I tried to rape her told the police the truth and that I did not do anything to her and all we did was make-out.
Bob, the orbiter/white knight who came to Sally’s “rescue” is still spreading lies about me around campus claiming that I did indeed rape Sally, which is not true at all. Bob is in a prestigious campus organization and posted into his organizations private group chat (has over 100+ members) claiming that I raped Sally even after Sally explained to Bob (And the police) that I didn’t rape her, Bob is still telling people I did.
People are now labeling me a rapist, isolating me, ignoring me, avoiding me, and shunning me. Some of the people in my social circle have started treating me differently. I was also told not to come around Bobs organization, attend any of the organizations public events, or come around anyone that’s in he and Sally’s social circle (which is made up of influential student leaders on campus). I’m also now being black listed from joining specific campus organizations because people have formed a bias against me and are labeling me a rapist.
Sally and is not confronting Bob about it or clearing up the confusion. I have evidence, timestamps, receipts, call logs, texts, screenshots, video and audio recordings that prove my innocence.
I’m stressing out and I feel like I cannot talk to anyone other than my two friends one of which was at the party and told me to take Sally and the other of which was the first person I called when Sally “disappeared” from my apartment. I’m also finding myself starting to get severely depressed and avoiding places on campus in fear of being ridiculed or ostracized.
Today Bob saw me on campus and stared me down (basically sizing me up) and he smirked. A friend of mine also saw this happen.
People are also exaggerating the story claiming I was aggressive with Sally and would not let her leave my apartment that night and that she said no several times and I continued, all of which is not true/never happened.
I’ve contacted a lawyer and plan to go to the police station to get official copies of the police report, body camera footage, as well as video footage from my apartment complex.
Is there anything else I should do?
TL;DR- Guy keeps spreading false rumors that I raped/attempted to his female friend, when the girl already admitted I didn’t. It’s severely affecting my social life, campus involvement, and mental state.
