Hello, thank you for the question. This is sensitive because of the "pedophile" label. but slander and libel civil law is fairly well settled.
Can you tell me more about what's going on? Don't use details that can identify anyone please.
That's always the best choice. I'm just trying to keep the discussion "hypothetical". I don't want to know specific details that can identify you, but if you can tell me in more general terms what happened I'm happy to tell you what I think.
I don't want to pester you, but you might be taking this matter "too seriously". It has little to do with your "constitutional rights", which guarantees you rights as against the government, not against other individuals for slander or libel. That's simply a subset of civll law for damages. This is something that you should come at strongly and want to settle. After all, a trial will simply draw more attention to the old charges, right?
I'd rather see you talk to me than spend thousands on a lawyer only to be told that this case isn't as grandiose or worth what you believe it should be.
