A mother was jailed for two years yesterday for crying rape against a man she met on a dating website.At last, a judge prepared to tell it like it is, and to not be swayed by calls for leniency.
Jennifer Day, 34, who made the false allegation against former boyfriend Andrew Saxby after a row, was told by the judge that she had undermined efforts to treat genuine rape victims fairly and sympathetically.
The court also heard that Mr Saxby was subjected to 'degrading and upsetting' examinations while being held by police for ten hours.
And yet again, this one turns out to have had form for false claims:
During the trial, the court heard how Day had a history of making up stories. The jury was told that while working at Royal London Hospital in East London as a nurse, she suffered stress-related hair loss and led her colleagues to believe it was cancer.Nice lady, eh…?
