My neighbor's husband has been accused(not convicted) of

My neighbor's husband has been accused(not convicted) of sexual assault on a minor (teen) by the person who has waited 20 years to make the accusation. This has been covered on TV and newspapers and mentioned the name of the wife's company. Subsequently, the wife's company has lost over $50k in business in one month and has bleak prospects of continuing due to the negative publicity of the husband's case which has still go to court or enter a plea. The anguish she has suffered has sent her to a therapist, extreme embarrassment with neighbors (won't leave the houseJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The case has been filed and a first hearing to set a first court date has just happened--no trial or plea stage yet. The business is definitely suffering since it is 100% referral work. The business website was taken down to avoid harassing contacts--the media had already contacted the wife and put a photo of their home on TV with the story.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't imagine any suit could be mentioned before the husband's case is settled one way or another. But due to the loss of the business, extreme anguish, etc, the question is, can a suit be brought against the person making the accusation/charge after the husband's case is settled? The wife is suicidal and seeing a therapist and taking anti anxiety meds to sleep. Terrible accusation against good people.

A woman is telling people my husband sexually assaulted her.

Hi there, a woman is telling people my husband sexually assaulted her. She has about 6 versions of the story, he told me his version and what he described is 100% not sexual assault. Some stories of hers are worse than others but she said in one that if she had not left she "knows he would have raped her" Is this considered slander?

Or even in jail?
