5 comments on “Justice served: woman who falsely reported rape jailed

    • While what she did was pretty bad, it may be that she lacked the malice that might have led to a harsher sentence. She didn’t intend for anyone to be arrested; her claim to have been raped was really intended to cover up something she did. When someone did get arrested, matters escalated beyond what she intended, and she eventually confessed.

      I think that this story is a good one to bring up for those who want to make the case that honesty is the best policy. Even a seemingly inconsequential lie can result in things spiraling out of control. In this case, matters could have been much worse than they turned out.
