hello i can help you. has she involved the police?
Yes, of course.
I'm not sure what your question is about this?
Yes, so what is your question?
This is a question and answer site. We cannot act for you. I can give you general information upon your position though.
Clearly an allegation of this kind is defamatory. Generally speaking, actually I do think that the best means of defence is to defend aggressively and make these accusers liable for their ridiculous allegations. Of course you do run the risk of them going to the police to save face but then that could happen anyway.
You could get a solicitor to write to her warning her of the laws of defamation for about £100 plus VAT. That usually does cause people to desist.
If that fails though then suing is very expensive and probably she won't have the money to pay any award so that is to be avoided.
Usually the letter alone is adequate though. I do think it would be a good idea. The truth is that most women accept without complaint that unwelcome approaches will happen sometimes. Only a small minority of women make wild allegations and they need to be held to account.
Can I clarify anything for you?
A barrister under public access would probably be cheaper actually. Try
