Woman jailed after ten false rape claims against two men

Article here. Excerpt:

'A WOMAN who made ten false rape claims against two men including one who wore an ankle tag to prove his innocence has been jailed.

Cathy Richardson, 35, from Westcliff in Essex, made the allegations between January and May 2021 but has now been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

One of the men who faced the false accusations agreed to wear an ankle tag to prove to police he was nowhere near where an assault was said to have taken place.

Essex Police condemned Richardson’s actions, saying the accusations had made a “huge impact” on the men’s lives and had resulted in wasted police time and resources.

The force added her false allegations had also done a “great disservice” to real victims of sexual crimes.'
