A man who told police he had been kidnapped and raped by two men has admitted making the story up.There are some differences. Note the way the word victim is in inverted commas. Not sure I've seen that before. And check out the charge:
Ashley Vaughan, from Gittisham, Devon, admitted wasting police time when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court.And look! They're even stealing our usual excuse!
Vaughan had reconciled with his family after a difficult period and was "looking forward", the judge added.No. It's. NOT...
As a result, and despite the seriousness of the crime, which carries a maximum sentence of six months, he told Vaughan he was unlikely to be sent to jail.
"That's probably a bit severe," Judge Neligan said.
