Simply put, there is no worse accusation than a sex offense against a minor. Period. When falsely accused, the first instinct is to explain your innocence to anyone that will listen. This is the worst thing you can do.
Anyone you talk to about a false accusation is actually a potential witness against you. Anything you say to anyone that verifies any link in the chain of an accusation can be used to convict you of a crime, and strip you of your family, your job, your reputation and your liberty. Worse still, anyone you talk to may not remember all of what you say, or may even remember it differently.
If a criminal investigation is ongoing, the police themselves may not have all of the pieces necessary to prosecute. They will turn to you and those around you to provide them with those missing pieces. The problem, of course, is that you don't know what part of the investigation the police are missing until it is too late.
