Apologies for the long post but I feel it's important to give all details.
I am 24 years old. About 2 weeks ago my partner and I had been out for a night of drinking. We returned to her mothers house at around 6am in the morning being generally drunk, loud and in good spirits. We woke her younger sister up who is 18 to come and drink with us who quite happily obliged.
Around 20 mins later I decided to have a cigarette and the sister joined me in the shed in the garden (this is where we smoke) my partner said she will join in a moment as She just needed the toilet.
Sitting in the shed we were both chatting away together and in my drunken state I put my arm round when and said I love you, you like a sister to me.... she then tried to kiss me, I brushed her off putting it down to a silly 18 year old crush. She then did it again and I pushed her away. I promised not to tell her sister and we left it there.
We sat back down and continued smoking. Her sister came into the shed around 3 mins later and we smoked and chatted for about 10 minutes.
Before I continue it's worth noting that her sister and me banter a lot over txt message, winding each other up etc as a brother and sister would. When I went to bed I txt her and said I love you lots but no that can't happen, maybe in another life.
Anyway.... a few days later I am awoken to police banging my door down, I was arrested for sexual assault/rape and placed in the cells.
When I was interviewed by the horrible officers from the specialist unit I discovered that I have been accused of forcing my tongue down this girls throat, touching her vagina and attempting to 'bend her over' a drum set in the shed. Her statement also reads that I only
Stopped because we was disturbed by her sister/my partner coming in.... rubbish as we were sitting down already when her sister came in.
Thankfully my partner is 100% behind me and has already stated Shen will tell police immediately her version of events as the sheer amount of time between this alleged assault and my partner coming in was just to short for anything to have happened. Also of course that it is a disgusting allegation.
The reason I am so worried is because of the way the police behaved with me. Made me out to be a rapist more or less and a liar and that 'this does not look good for me'... I also can't understand why they have not called my partner for a statement as she can defend me.
I have a solicitor and my bail is set until January 20th 2017 but I am petrified as I have done nothing wrong. I can't shake the feeling that somehow I am going to be found guilty of this as Its my word against hers. Really am ready to go and jump of a bridge right now. I can't eat. I can't sleep.
Somebody please help me, explain the process and what happens now? There is no evidence whatsoever to substantiate her claims but I Ann so frightened as is my partner.
My partner as you can imagine is absolutely livid with her sister.
Thank you everybody
