A rape accuser has been charged with perverting the course of justice over allegations of historical abuse that led to the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of a firefighter.
Danny Day will appear in court by video link on Friday over claims that he was raped at a fire station in Dorset in the Seventies when he was 14.
Police launched an investigation that resulted in Dave Bryant, a respected fire chief with an unblemished record, being convicted and subsequently jailed for six years in 2014.
Mr Bryant, now aged 69, from Christchurch, was freed two years later after the Court of Appeal quashed the conviction.
The mantra of always believe the victim only applies to wimmins victims, obviously.
So this is fine, a bloke being wrong, well, doesn’t change anything else does it? She says it, it happened, right?
