Hello, on Nov 10, I happened to kiss a girl whom i know since some years. It was not forceful. However, after some time, she started reacting and then so I voluntarily decided to step out of her place.on Nov 18, I receive an email notice from her (she has marked a copy to her boyfriend who lives abroad), narrating a completely false story of what happened. She has clearly exxagerated the situation, and has also mentioned that she visited an attorney and that its a potential case of sexual offense.She has also specified not to conact her in any means. However, I would like to respond to that email, since what she narrated is not true, and I am afriad the email might be used in future to blackmail me. Is there a way I can send a response denying the charges, because if I remain silent, that would mean I accepted the charges, which I dont. She also used a lot of derogatory words against me in that email. Please advice. Should I visit an attorney and let the attorney send her a notice
Thank you. I am just worried that it might be used against me in future. We know a lot of people in common and I don't want that email to ruin my reputation because it contains cooked up stories. Can a local attorney respond to her email on my behalf. I want to make sure this is closed once and for all. And I would prefer if she does not contact me either
