A woman was jailed for two years today after being exposed as a serial liar who repeatedly made up stories that she had been raped.Yes, it’s another of those ‘rare’ cases…
Blunden's lies began on July 26, 2008, when she reported to police that she had been raped by James Mabey, 26, in a hostel where she was living in Newbury.And amazingly, immediately arrested her:
Police then arrested Mr Mabey who was questioned for 17 hours before police realised he was innocent and released him.
The judge was also told about how Blunden boasted about having sex with Mr Mabey and sent him a text message to apologise for getting him arrested.And while at large, she did it again…
She was then arrested herself and interviewed about her false allegations but released so that police could investigate further.
While out on bail she went to a party and flirted with a man before letting three men have sex with her in a communal bathroom, one after another.Still, this time, police were more circumspect, and…
She then left the party and dialled 999 to say that her train fare money had been stolen before saying she had been gang raped by three men - Shane Roberts, 23, Craig Pilime and Colin McDonagh, both 21.
No. Don’t be silly. Police don’t have autonomy any more:
They were all taken in to custody and were needlessly questioned for up to 13 hours each, before they were released without charge.Perhaps a claim for wrongful arrest?
Defending Blunden Nicholas Doherty said that she needed help to 'amend her personality defects of depression and insecurities.'She doesn’t need ‘help’; she needs an equivalent punishment to that which would have befallen the men she falsely accused.
