  1. Why are false allegations of rape punished so leniently? Four months in prison is two months shorter than the maximum sentence for playing a guitar in a pub without a licence.

  2. I’m with you, Kay Tie. All we need is a woman to make a false claim about being raped in the bathroom of a pub she’s been performing an illegal acoustic set in and the absurdity of it all will be revealed.

    Judging by her name being in the article, I assume they changed the law whereby the identities of the perpetrators of these falsehoods were protected whereas the identities of their victims, the alleged attackers, were not. Can anyone remind me?

  3. Alleged rape victims’ names are still (and have been for a long time) prevented from disclosure in relation to the rape trial, whether or not the alleged rapist is convicted.

    But they aren’t (and have never been) prevented from disclosure in relation to any trial *they* may face for perjury/perverting the cause of justice.

    [digressionallly: “Mr Mullholland… said his marriage is now under threat”. Anyone think this might have more to do with his penchant for one night stands with slutty chavettes than with this specific case…?]

  4. Ah, that’s it, thanks John B.

    The issue is that then if a false claim is made, the alleged rapist gets his name pulled through the mud whilst the “victim” remains anonymous. It takes for a second trial with regards to the framing that the “victim” loses said anonymity.

    I don’t see anywhere in the report that the false rape claim actually went to trial…

    All it says is: “Challoner later broke down and confessed she had made up the rape.”. The linked report seems to be indicating this was the only trial resulting from the whole affair.
