Synonyms of "Accused" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Accused and Defendant ?
A: Someone is accused when they are charged with a crime, even before the trial. The accused is the defendant in a criminal trial. In a civil trial, the defendant is not accused of a crime - instead the plaintiff claims they are financially liable for something.
Q: What is the difference between Accused of and Accused for ?
A: Use "accused of"

As far as I know "accused for" is not grammatically correct, and there is no situation where it would be better to say "accused for" than "accused of".

"arrested" is different though. You can say "arrested for..." or "arrested on charges of..." but not "arrested of..."
