UK: Woman avoids jail for 'wicked' false rape claim against innocent man

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Bangor woman who made a "wicked" false claim that she'd been raped in a shopping centre avoided an immediate jail term.

Chantelle Clarke, from Pinehill Road, appeared at Downpatrick Crown Court sitting in Belfast, where she was handed a 12-month prison sentence which was suspended for two years.

It emerged the man she claimed raped her in the toilets of the Flagship Shopping Centre in Bangor had "suffered dreadfully" as a result of her lies - including having to move house.

A barrister for 22-year old Clarke said she had expressed remorse for the consequences of her actions and the impact it had has on the man she falsely accused.'
