If someone accuses an innocent someone of a horrible civil rights crime, should the wrongful accuser be put in prison for the same amount of time that their innocent victim would have had to serve?

A 6th Amendment "Confrontation Clause does not carry over into civil term, however, a Civil " Confrontation Clause" should be enacted to subvert the malicious usage and meritless accusations.....

Only if it is proved that they knew the person was innocent

Unfortunately this will cause fewer people to come forward for fear of what happens if they lose the case even if the crime was real.

Is it done knowingly, or is it an honest belief that turns out to be wrong?

Whatever the slander laws should be applied to the fullest extent. The country needs some proven examples prosecuted to the fullest extent. After all, one of the 10 commandments is thou shall NOT give false testimony. Your going to have more than slander laws to deal with.

Yes. A major sex crime allegation will not go away and your life is destroyed, even if exonerated.

Read that wrong but goes for civil rights too - like an employer hold his employees under slave-comparable conditions or or human trafficking.
Or am I on the wrong track?
