Examples of accused in a Sentence

  1. Danny Masterson:

    From day one, I have denied the outrageous allegations against me. Law enforcement investigated these claims more than 15 years ago and determined them to be without merit, i have never been charged with a crime, let alone convicted of one. In this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, in the current climate, it seems as if you are presumed guilty the moment you are accused.

  2. Donald Trump:

    Shame on those who make up false stories of assault to try to get publicity for themselves, or sell a book, or carry out a political agenda -- like Julie Swetnick who falsely accused Justice Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it's just as bad for people to believe it, particularly when there is zero evidence. Worse still for a dying publication to try to prop itself up by peddling fake news -- it's an epidemic.

  3. Heidi Heitkamp:

    I saw somebody who was very angry, who was very nervous, and I saw rage that a lot of people said,' well of course you're going to see rage he's being falsely accused,' but it is at all times you're to acquit yourself with a demeanor that's becoming of Supreme Court.

  4. Benjamin Brafman:

    Under the circumstances, he's holding up reasonably well. No one can be happy to be in the position that he is in, as terrible a crime as rape is, it is equally reprehensible to be falsely accused of rape, and since Harvey Weinstein has denied these allegations, that's where we are.

  5. Sarah Roderick:

    I do feel like there's a possibility people will be afraid to come forward. If you come forward and share your story, if you don't have the date right, every detail down, you'll think, 'I'm going to be accused of being a liar. It's easier for me to keep it to myself,'.
