  • I agree with you Adriana ~ right up until the part about needing counseling. People who lie like that don't need counseling, they need their mouths washed out with some old fashioned lye soap and a swift kick in the behind.

    If she actually named someone, she deserves to sit in jail. She is part of the reason that so many women who are raped have such a difficult time proving it ~ and why so many are put through a living hell just to get justice.

  • Women like this make it harder for women who are truly raped to be believed she should be fined and have to apologize publicly for causing worry

  • She should be fined for wasting police time. Also serve community service at a rape crisis center so she can see and hear women who have really been there. What an idiot. She needs counseling!

  • Wasting police time
    Obstruction of justice

    At the very least, she's in for it for 3 charges, one of them is a felony. Beyond that, she can be sued, in civil court, into permanent bankruptcy.

    Some choices are life-altering. Unless someone cares what life issues brought a man to rape a woman, I can't imagine why anyone cares what she was going through before doing this to a guy.

  • amen farmlady09 i totally agree with you. women have it hard enought to be taken seriously without someone like her telling what she might have thought was a harmless lie. If someone was involved she could have ruined his reputation or worse ruined a relationship he may have had with someone else

  • The woman who lied about the Duke lacrosse team raping her wasn't charged with anything. She should have been put in jail for filing false reports and lying to the grand jury. Instead, she got nothing. The DA got charged , but the non-victim didn't. The boys who were charged lost their scholarships, the professors at the school had rallied behind the liar, the parents spent untold amounts of money to defend their sons.....and nothing. The laws were slanted towards men, then they were neutral, and now they are too far slanted towards women. The law is suppose to be blind to race, color, creed, religion, and gender. Yes, she should be charged with filing a false report, slander, liable, and anything else they can think of.

  • They had a true story of a women in NYC that accused a man of rape because she didn't want to come clean to her friend. It took 3 years to get the man out, they didn't believe her because he had an assault charges on him in the past. She's now serving time in jail for her actions.

  • Fined, community service and mandatory physchiatric treatment!

    Answer by Kathy675 at 4:17 AM on Jan. 16, 2011

  • Agree with Adriana!

  • Obviously she is messed up and needs counseling

    but women like her make it more difficult for actual victims of sexual assault to be believed and have their rapist tried. There should be harsh legal reprecussions......including jail time and restitution the accused
