http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2030471/Wicked-women-jailed-accusing-man-rape-showed-police-pictures-consensual-threesome.html In order to hide they had an affair with each other and a guy they picked up at the pub from their boyfriends they were in a long term relationship with they accused a man of rape. It took three interviews until they finally broke down and told the truth, even though the suspect had already produced pictures of that night from his cell phone. If he would of been convicted he would of been facing 10 years in prison. Do you think they got off lightly considering the time he would of faced for their lie? A very large number of rape accusers never have any charges brought against them even after they recant their statements.

Women, supposedly equal, widely get the benefit of the doubt when claiming rape, when seeking custody of children, when attempting to milk guys for alimony, etc. And all that's good and well. But a woman claiming rape can ruin a man's life if it isn't true. Even if he's found to be not guilty, there's still a large segment of society that will crucify him and hold him as a rapist. It's still very costly both financially and emotionally to defend one's self against such accusations. When I was 23, I showed up at the apartment one day after work and was nearly tackled by a cop. I was handcuffed, read my rights, and taken down to the station where I then learned that my girlfriend had accused me of hitting her. I hadn't seen the BIATCH in 2 weeks. As far as I knew, she was giving blowies out somewhere for shoes. I never laid a hand on her. She refused to follow through with anything, such as testifying, amending her statement, etc, and they just dropped it. No apology to me. No charges for her. Just under the rug like "oops." I can only imagine if it would have been a rape accusation! Women get off very light in a wide number of cases. They say--whoever "they" are--that most rape victim don't even file charges. Well, considering that so many who do file charges lie about the chargers, how in the phuck did they figure that stat? Rape is horrible. Rapists should receive life in prison and castration in my humble opinion. But some women have a vindictive streak and a flair for drama that cannot be figured out by any man on the face of the planet and probably not even by a sane, level woman. So there has to be a larger punishment for these vindictive broads when they decide to get even by literally attempting to take someone's life and freedom away. To hide an affair this woman was willing to put someone in prison. Just on a whim to get even with me for longer wanting to spend my money, an ex of mine was willing to have me put in prison. FFS I don't want to be sexist here. It's not my aim. But men and woman are very different. I won't say a man wouldn't do that. I'm sure men have. But that type of thing has to be 85/15 women vs. men.

I once had a woman tell me that if she didn't get her way she would say I physically abused her and make it believable. I was totally floored that she, being a "good Christian woman" (or so I thought) and all would even think of saying some crap like that. I must admit it not only shocked me but scared me. I grew up with two older sisters who were very involved in my life. They were always loyal, honest and truthful. It took me over 20 years of dating and relationships to realize all woman are not like the two of them. "I don't want to be sexist here. It's not my aim. But men and woman are very different. I won't say a man wouldn't do that. I'm sure men have. But that type of thing has to be 85/15 women vs. men." - look at the reply I made above to the first comment, I think the in-actions of the prosecution in the second link encourages it.

It makes it harder to actually punish the men who ARE out there hurting women. Everyone has to wonder, is SHE telling the truth?

"I once had a woman tell me that if she didn't get her way she would say I physically abused her and make it believable." Totally sucks. At least you got warning though! lol .... But in all seriousness, I know a lot of women (well, I guess you could say they were "girls" back then) who did that. My friend had to deal with constant threats just like the ones you're describing. If he wanted to go play cards, she would accuse him of cheating and then scream to the top of her lungs that she'd tell everyone he hit her. Then when he'd finally work up the nuts to leave her about every other week, she'd start crying that she'd kill herself and about how sorry she was, etc. That same nonsense went on for years before they finally split. The sad part: They had 2 kids together. I agree that women are encouraged. If your goal is to rob banks, you'd probably be far more likely to do it if there wasn't any security at the bank itself and if the repercussions were light. Tight security and a stiff sentence, on the other hand, is a major deterrent. "It makes it harder to actually punish the men who ARE out there hurting women." Yep. Crying wolf on something like that threatens real victims all day.

That sounds unfair to this man, and the law is on the woman's side mostly. I would strongly protest such slander, and the man should fight it back strongly. He should ask for some sort of financial repayment from these 2 women at least. They just wrongly accuse this man, and might get him into trouble. Now, I think it is a good time for this man to fight it back.

A feminist would say they were driven to it by the male dominated society they live in...

..and they would be wrong. We live in a society that cares little for morality, for the truth. It has nothing to do with 'male dominated' it has to do with who can tell the biggest lie and get away with it. Male or female, that has nothing to do with telling the truth or being moral.

I think the sentence of 20 months was fair. It might even be too long. In saying that, these women did a terrible thing. They caused an innocent man some grief and brought some harm to his reputation. But from what I read, he was accused but quickly cleared up the matter. He spent several hours in jail but nothing more. Nevertheless, that is terrible. Fortunately for him, he had pictures to prove his innocence. And a court that would listen. I think the women should have been charged but I think 20 months in prison is a little high. I hope the accused man will file a lawsuit agains the two women. In The United States, these two women might have been publicly embarrassed but nothing more. it is possible that they would have to do some community work but it is very unlikely they would spend any time in prison. This might be a good lesson for the gentleman that he needs to be a little more selective about who he picks up in a bar and has a romantic rendezvous with. Some might say something about morals and values.

"I think the women should have been charged but I think 20 months in prison is a little high." - if he had of been convicted he would of been facing ten years and having his life ruined forever. I doubt they serve 20 months. "In The United States, these two women might have been publicly embarrassed but nothing more. it is possible that they would have to do some community work but it is very unlikely they would spend any time in prison." - Goes to show how justice isn't blind after all.

Thank the radical feminist, then thank the law that caters to them. One more way we've been divided and are about to be conquered. I've been r@ped. And when things like this happen I feel it diminishes what I went through.

I do not know the penalty for false accusations or lying to the court in England. Is that not perjury and does not perjury carry a stiff jail sentence? That fart would make their jail sentences longer and even if they had boyfriends, well by their actions according to that article, they really had no shame in having a good time out in public.

I am not sure how the laws work over there either. I know that here in the US if you lie to a federal officer they can charge you with a crime that carries five years in prison. Not so sure what the penalty is for lying in a police interview if it would be considered perjury or not. I agree they didn't have much shame about what they were doing so I sincerely doubt this was their first time they had cheated on their boyfriends.

Wow I am really horrified by this. The poor guy who came in these womens paths. They should have confessed their guilt of having a affair from the beginning instead of trying to ruin another mans life. I am glad they finally came to their senses and told the truth. I dont think 20 months is even enough when he would have faced 10 if he had really raped them. They could have destroyed his life with a lie.

Just goes to show why you should always keep it in your pants.

I think that a lie like that is a horrible and potential life ruining lie. If it happened, the man should be sentenced to the fullest extent of the law...I am all for that..but if a woman lies...there should be major repercussions there too. I think that it takes away from the cases in which there was a rape. It make them be seen as less important or even potential lies. I think that a woman that has been raped is going through an ordeal that no one can understand unless they have been there and it is atrocious that women like the ones you have brought to our attention make a real claim less important because of their childish behavior.

When a woman accuses a man of rape and he is found not guilty the reason given by the prosecutor is there was not enough evidence. The problem when a man is charged with rape he is labeled for life even if he later proves the charges false. If you want to look at equal justice look no further than what happens to a female teacher who has s3x with an underage student vs a man who who molests a female student but does not has s3xual relations with the female. The female is usually given probation and the man does hard time. It doesn't even have to go that far just the accusation is enough to end a mans career and damage him for life. Look at the Duke Lacrosse case. How much was spent by the boys and their parents trying to defend themselves, by the police investigating the charge and what about all the other students who suffered because the Lacrosse team was dropped, some students lost scholarships as a result. And what happened to the girl?
