We’ve just received the following email from a supporter, G:
As you will remember, I told you some time ago that my son had been falsely accused of raping his ex-fiance. The two were in bed together at the time, and both were in their underwear! The accusation was she had fallen asleep, they had sex, and she had been unable to give consent because she was asleep!
After twenty months of hell the Judge ended the trial after just over an hour. Due to the fact we were not allowed in court during her evidence, our solicitor explained that she’d openly admitted on the stand that she’d made up the asleep bit in order to justify the accusation. No crime had actually been committed, and furthermore she freely admitted she hadn’t wanted police action to go as far as it did, she just wanted my son to get a ticking-off because he’d upset her during an argument earlier in the day.
Our solicitor says that in all probability no action will be taken against this girl despite the fact she’s openly admitted to wasting police and court time, not to mention her legal aid. After the trial finished, my son and I were walking back to our hotel, and his accuser walked past and cheerily said, ‘Hi!’ to both of us.
As you so often say, Mike, you couldn’t make this s*** up!
