The innocent man, who was going through a divorce at the time, was taken away in handcuffs...That must have been a conflicting experience, given he originally went to her for bondage!
Sowden, of, Northfleet, Kent was jailed for 14 months at Maidstone Crown Court after admitting perverting the course of justice by trying to disguise her sex session as rape. The court heard the £14,000 investigation had wasted a staggering 376 hours of police time.She should be made to pay every single penny of that back.
Malcolm Gilbert, who works for rape charity Family Matters, yesterday condemned Sowden’s actions.
He said:”We condemn any woman, or indeed any man, who makes false allegations because of the harm to genuine rape victims, to undermine the whole business of rape.
“They should be pursued by the police in the way it has been here.”At last, an anti-rape organisation prepared to stand up and condemn her, rather than seek to excuse her! Maybe it's because it's a male spokesperson?
And men, since holiday season is coming up, beware this new wrinkle**:
There has been a rise in false reports of rape from tourists in Malaga, according to the police. They are apparently doing this, the police say, to make fraudulent claims from their travel insurance.
Doctors claim that in several cases they are convinced that the women are lying, but it is very hard to prove.And since they are tourists, they are usually out of the country by the time anyone thinks to charge them. Say, maybe that European Arrest Warrant might come in handy here..?
