It is just his or her word against mine. Can the police even charge me?
Yes, the fact is that there are a number of crimes in Florida that are prosecuted based on the word of a single witness. Many times we see that in the battery context, domestic battery context.
Also in some sex-related crimes, there will often be no physical evidence, but the state’s case will be based primarily on the word of a single witness. Regardless of the amount of evidence, the State’s burden of proof will be the same. But they can proceed on the word of one witness if they choose.
