It would surely go to their credibility, during trial. The defendant has a right to confront their accuser, so at trial, on cross examination, it would be something used to impeach the victim.

aside from trial do you think there would be a way to prove the victim is not credible
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 7 years ago.
You could take their deposition and see if they lie during that time. You also could do a background check on them and see if they have any prior criminal history that would go towards truthfulness.
