Natasha Foster jailed for making false rape claim

Our thanks to T for this. Normally it takes quite a number of false rape allegations against different men before women are charged with the offence, and even then they rarely receive  custodial sentences. So we applaud a judge in Northern Ireland for his decision in this case:

Quite why her sentence was halved just because she’s now a mother, is a mystery. We’ve never heard of any man’s sentence being halved because he’d become a father after committing an offence.

 

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Note that on the summing up of the false rape claim, the judge pointed out the negative effects on real rape victims and on the criminal justice system. Not a mention of the real and only direct victim, the accused man.

    • Thanks, good point. How often does anyone show the slightest damned sympathy for men whose lives are ruined, who lose their jobs, have to move house etc.? What compensation do they get? None.
