Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. It is important to remember that the burden is on the State, to prove the charge against you, beyond a reasonable doubt. They will need to present evidence to show and support the charge, at trial. At the same time, you have a legal right to not only take the stand and testify on your own behalf but introduce any evidence which you have and to attack the credibility of the victim and her version of the events. As such, you can provide video from the home, reenacting what happened and showing that from where she was standing and that could have not have happened and show the jury, that she is lying.
