women who lie about being rapedPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)

Unless maybe such laws also applied to men who lie about being raped................

how many do you know then?

a woman who lies about rape will no doubt face just as much 'stigma' and finger pointing in her neighbourhood as a convicted rapist.
what goes around comes around

recall a case of some 19 year old that had oral sex with a 15 year old, she later claimed that he had raped her, but luckily he had filmed the act on him showing how forward she was and the like. Police see the film and he gets off with a sex register membership and the girl gets off free

personally feel that if you make up a story, then the woman should suffer jail time for it

Proving someone lied about being raped is about as easy as proving they're telling the truth....

Should a proven liar get a similar sentence to what the alleged rapist had got if convicted?...........Absolutely yes!

Probably wont give the innocents any peace of mind though, their life will be in ruins anyway.

the problem with rape cases is the evidence which could be either for or against the victim, i mean victim as in the innocent party. which im quite suprised they dont offer lie detectors as evidence. i know they are only about 96-97% proof but would rather take that then a long trial, where its all down to convincing the jury and indeed who has the best acting skills.

if a false allegation is made then criminal charges should be brought in, and details released after the trial. BUT what would happen if someone was charged with false claims, done there time and was raped, due to that conviction?

One of my son's friends was accused of rape some time ago.
He was put on police bail pending enquiries for nearly ten months.
During that time the conditions of his bail were that he could not
return to his home, or home town for that matter. He had to spend
that time living with friends and also had to give up his job.

All charges were subsequently dropped.
