Fourteen hours ago, Reddit user “WronglyAccused” posted the following query to AskReddit:

WronglyAccused, though practiced in the art of subtlety, proved less versed in legalese. “The fiancee of one of my friends is accusing me of rape,” he wrote. “I have no idea what my legal options are and his father is a high-powered NY attorney. What am I supposed to do in the situation?”

Reddit users responded sensibly, for once. The lead response, from youareretardedguy: “You don’t need the advice of reddit, you need a lawyer you dumb motherfucker. Jesus Christ.”

Perhaps Reddit was the best place to turn after all?
