I happen to find this sentence online but I am not sure under what circumstances people say it.

Would you explain the meaning of this sentence?

That is a very serious accusation.

Help me please.
Thank you in advance.

    Her: I think you stole my mother's necklace.
    Him: That's a very serious accusation.

    Her: You seem like a very studious person.
    Him: That's a very serious accusation.

    You can use it for anything you think is a serious accusation, and some things that you know aren't.
