UK: Woman who walked free after false rape claims on three men is finally jailed

Article here. Excerpt:

'Anna Costin, 30, of Shrewsbury, was originally given a three-year community order after admitting seven charges of perverting the course of justice in January.

Between January 2016 and March 2016, Costin accused three men of rape and another man of physically assaulting her at home.

Her case was referred to the Court of Appeal in London on Wednesday on the basis that the sentence was ‘too lenient’.

Imposing the term on Costin, who was not in court but must surrender to custody tomorrow, Lady Justice Hallett said that although the judge at Shrewsbury Crown Court recognised the consequences for the victims, he placed too much emphasis on Costin’s mental health problems.'
