So? The police themselves
should be on the hook for some of that too, shouldn't they?
A married mother-of-four who wrecked the lives of two soldiers after she falsely claimed they raped her has walked free from court.
Well, of course!
Up to 20 police officers investigated the allegations and within 24 hours had arrested two squaddies at their barracks, a court heard.
The innocent men were 'degraded' as police took blood, pubic hair and DNA samples for a crime they had not committed.
One of the soldiers was branded a paedophile and a rapist when he returned to his barracks.
The other was forced to quit the army and move away from the area after his fiancee and children left him.
Not to mention that now her picture is all over the papers, it might be that their eyesight
is to be called into question too...
Aldridge's solicitor Ian Bond portrayed his client as a vulnerable and troubled woman.
Ahhh, the old ones are the best, eh?
Another "free hit" for the fragrant sex courtesy of our political system.
You are right the resources were wasted not by the police but by the offender. They always are.
Go ugly early I think is the phrase they use in the Army.
Aldridge, who has one previous conviction for being drunk and disorderly, was not a regular drinker and had drunk too much at the party on the night she made the claims.
Two interesting facts for you...
1. The above is actual mitigation as vomited by her solicitor.
2. It appears to have worked.
I'm confused a bit by the timeline. If she recanted within 24 hours like the article states then it seems a little premature for "...forced to quit the army and move away from the area after his fiancee and children left him."
@APL: one suspects the fiancee of one of the accused subsequently left him because he had slept with a slapper at a party, not because he'd been falsely accused of raping said slapper.
"Go ugly early I think is the phrase they use in the Army."
I shudder to think of the meaning of that phrase...
"2. It appears to have worked."
Doesn't it always..? :/
"...then it seems a little premature for "...forced to quit the army and move away from the area after his fiancee and children left him.""
I think Jim might have the answer there.
