Rhiannon Brooker, 30, is on trial for allegedly falsely accusing her boyfriend of repeatedly raping and assaulting her -- the prosecution says she cried rape 11 times -- which caused him to be arrested, charged and held in custody for 30 days, according to this source. She purportedly used the allegations as “extenuating circumstances” in a failed attempt to dodge her exams, according to the prosecution. According to a news report: "After withdrawing her allegations Brooker confirmed they were false, and admitted that injuries seen by witnesses, including her friends and doctors, were self-inflicted, the court heard." Yet, she is still denying that she committed an act tending, and intended, to pervert the court of justice. It is not clear what her defense might be.
If the prosecution is correct, add this case to the list of outrageous reasons for rape claims that we've reported in the past few years:
▲The accuser’s boyfriend took too long to buy cigarettes, so she falsely accused him of rape.
▲A woman's rape lie sent a man to prison for five years because she said she was bored.
▲A man refused to give a woman a beer, so she falsely accused him of rape.
▲Two women in Washington state claimed they were raped by ghosts. The specters only forced the women to have intercourse on weekends.
▲A girl falsely accused a man of rape for throwing a flower at her.
▲A woman modeled her false claim against a priest after a rape in a novel -- she admitted she identified with characters in novels featuring violent rape.
▲In various cases, women didn’t want to pay cab fares, so they simply accused innocent cab drivers of rape.
▲A maid falsely accused her employer of rape because she didn’t like her workload.
▲A woman caused three men to be interrogated for rapes they didn’t commit because she wanted a day off from work.
▲And then there was the 18-year-year-old man who was hauled out of class, arrested, and jailed for a month -- a girl he had never even met randomly accused him of rape for no apparent reason.
And then there are the cases involving outrageous revenge rape lies over petty things; rape lies to get attention; rape lies told by serial false accusers who are permitted to continue to terrorize innocent men and boys because their crimes aren't taken seriously; and rape lies told to "explain" an illicit sexual encounter.
I could go on and on and on, but you get the picture.
