I was reading about a woman who cried rape about an innocent man she had consensual sex with and she was sentenced to 2 ywars in prison.

aibu to say this wasnt long enough. She could of potentially ruined an innocent persons life and cases like this make it harder to prove real incidents of rape.

There are some interesting stats in here but the point still remains that what she did was a horrible crime and she deserved longer. She will probably only serve half that sentence. She is giving women a bad name.

She's only giving women a bad name to those looking for a bad name to give to women.

If that makes sense?

No sympathy or respect for any woman that cries rape. It's vile.

I know a guy who was accused of a sexual assault. Was later proved beyond any doubt to have been totally innocent. Unfortunately it was too late. His name had been dragged through the mud in the papers, he'd lost his job, half his family turned on him, he wasn't allowed to see his two youngish kids (divorced). He lost a huge amount of weight and really quickly. He became very seriously depressed and committed suicide.

The woman who falsely accused him got six months.

I know of a sexual abuse victim who was told at court it wasn't too late for her to drop all this nonsense. You have to wonder if justice has been done at all here or if this woman has had insult added to injury.

Mosman she admmitted she lie. She wasnt cross examined or forced into anything. She tried to destroy a mans life because she cheated on her husband

The person I was at court with would have admitted to being pope john paul the 2nd if it would have made it all go away.
It wouldn't be the first time in history that a woman "admitted" something didn't happen thinking that would stop the hurt and trauma only to find themselves in a worse situation.

This isnt the person you know though. She admitted to lying when the police went back to see her 10 years later after the original report
