Examples of accused in a Sentence

  1. Susan Wood:

  2. Chairman Cummings:

    This is one moment in history. And when you get to my age, and you look back and you realize, these moments are very, very, very significant. It may very well be a turning point in our country's history, I don't know, he's the only person that I know of who has accused this President of a crime.

  3. Acting CEO Susanne Lyons:

    We need to have a culture that does not make it difficult for people to speak up. Not a culture of retribution, not a culture in which there is protection of others who are accused, so I think there is a strong awareness and knowledge that that's what needs to change.

  4. Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo:

    She offered to provide the gay couple with a list of bakeries that would meet their needs, but she said the men simply walked out of the store. A few days later she received a telephone call from the local newspaper. The gay couple had gone public — and had accused the Delorme family of discrimination. It just kind of makes you feel dehumanized, Ben Valencia told the News-Journal. People shouldn't have to worry about going into a business, especially a public business that serves the public, and have to worry about being turned away for something, for who you are.

  5. Hillary Clinton:

    I get accused of being kind of a moderate, center…I plead guilty.
