Ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, more and more people are coming forward to admit they have been victims of sexual assault. This is not just happening among the Hollywood elite. Women and men from all over the world are coming forward feeling that they finally have a voice. While most of these cases are quite genuine, there are some who are also being innocently accused. If it had not been for a series of text messages that this young man's brother found, the 19-year-old could have spent years behind bars.
The Harvey Weinstein scandal has been a tipping point bringing women all over the world together to face the sexual predators who have assaulted them. They no longer feel alone and weak. They are standing strong, together against these vile men. However, while most of these stories we are hearing are quite true, there are some who are innocent of the crimes they are being accused of like in the case of 19-year-old Connor Fitzgerald who could have faced years behind bars had the truth not come out finally.
Having your relationship fall apart is not an easy thing to deal with. Sadly, we live in a world where being the "crazy ex-girlfriend" is glorified on social media. There are tons of GIFs and memes that encourage this kind of behavior.
Conor's whole ordeal started on November 1, 2017. A group of officers showed up at his South London home accusing him of raping a woman whose name is being left out for legal reasons. Conor was arrested in front of his terrified mother and sister. His accuser claimed the incident happened back in June 2017 after a drunken night out.
The case ended up getting dropped by Croydon Crown Court last week after a series of damning text messages were brought forth. Conor's accuser jokes about ruining his life in these text messages. Up until this moment, the teen spent three months in jail for something he did not do.
