Six Months Is Up Already..?

Over at Dumb Jon's, another of those oh-so-rare cases of women lying about rape (must break out a new tag, I'm obviously going to need it):
District Judge Tim Daber said her behaviour had undermined the 'credibility' of genuine complaints.

Yet, instead of a six-month maximum jail term, Capon was given a 12-week suspended sentence and ordered to pay £95 costs.
So much for it being 'massively reported with well-deserved outrage everywhere, as with all cases where a woman is prosecuted for lying about a rape', as john b tried to claim over at Tim Worstall's site the other day. He also thought 'Without checking Factiva, my guess is that they occur about once every six months'.

Hmm, yeah, if you say so.. ;)
