  • I worked in a psychiatric hospital for a long time, I had to deal with real rape crisis on a regular basis. I think that people that falsly accuse don't know what they are accusing. They have watched so much Law and Order SVU that the thought of rape is just a thought. They don't see the devastation it leaves in it's wake.
  • Methink they happen often.
  • I believe the person making the false claim should be prosecuted. Even when it is proven false, people are going to be believe it about the accused therefore they accuser has wrecked the life and reputation of the accused. I would sentence them for 2-5 yrs in prison for doing so. Maybe that would stop alot of the false accusations.
  • Such things rather annoy me. Come to think of it, most false claims annoy me. This one is particularly icky though. Can just imagine the rage with which real rape victims would be filled.
  • The usual motive behind false claims is revenge for being dropped for another partner.The person who makes a false claim of rape should be jailed for the same period as a person who actually commits a rape.
  • Fact from fiction, truth from diction. Because society has become so sex crime crazy and believe anything outside of consentual fornication (opposite sex or same sex) that something nefarious and evil is going on. And the news clamoring for ratings milk every story hence the Dugard case. And politicians wanting to keep their position pimp it like there is no tomorrow. So the moment some female speaks that they were raped it is like blood in the water. People start salivating from the mouth wolves over a wounded deer. But society has made it the woman's nuclear option, because so many will just believe it before asking real questions.
  • Sprengo: They do it intentionally out of spite ,and they do know that if convicted their ex partner will get jail because they are also aware that people do get jail for rape by the local and national press and television. Its no excuse for them to say when they get caught out that they didn’t know the consequences,because ignorance of the law is no defence in a caught of law. Its a different case if they are mentally ill and do not know what they are doing, but the vast majority of false claims are done by people who are perfectly sane.You say that they do not know what it feels like to be raped,so what has this got to do with making a false accusation? People do things out of spite after being rejected by their partners.They may find out that they have been seeing someone else behind their back.And it is at this point some of them decide to punish their partner by making false claims.If their has had recent sexual contact a few days before, their will be plenty of DNA evidence to back up their claim.If their lies are believed and they stick by their story their partner can get seven years imprisonment(UK).How would you feel if a partner suddenly out of spite make false accusations against yourself,and you were jailed for something you did not do?
  • It happens more often than many think. Some people even served decades in prison before they could prove their innocence. And there isn't no serious punishment for the false claimers. In this comment thread I put some links that tell you more about the topic. http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/7494012
  • They should be prosecuted and made to register as sex offenders.
  • I think if it's proven that you have claimed a rape that did not occur, you should suffer the same sentence that someone who does commit a rape does. If you're willing to put someone else into that place and it's not even true, you should have to face the same consequences. Good question. +4
  • I'm against them. +5
  • I think it is remarkably difficult to know if such claims are true or false. The absence of any physical evidence does not necessarily mean that such a claim is false.
  • If it turns out to somehow be true (that shes lying) and the woman is just trying to send the guy to prison and its proven, i think she should be sent to prison.
  • They should be either sent to jail or a heavy fine or both. This is the reason why real cases of rape is so hard to prosecute.
  • I believe that anyone reporting a FALSE "Rape" claim / charge should be sentenced to NO LESS than FIVE Years in Prison PLUS Fined NO LESS Than $5,000 !! +5

  • They are less common than true rapes going unreported and unconvicted.
  • i think they are as bad or worse that rapeing a girl have you ever seen a girl that has did a FALSE RAPE CLAIM go to jail for doing a false report to the cops i never have seen any girl go away for make some poor guy lose every thing he has wife /kids /house / job /then he has a really hare time getting a new job too the bail he has to paid to get out of jail before court AND THAT HOW A GIRL THAT RELLY BEN RAPE FEEL ......SO IT LIKE SHE HAS GOT AWAY WITH RAPEING HIM IT ABOUT THE SAME THING AFTER HE LOSE EVERTHIBG HE HAD..........................just because some bitch he did something too wanted paid back but yet he he did rape a girl he go to jail for 20 years BUT SHE DID ABOUT THE SAME THING TO HIM AND SHE WALK FREE .................................may be i did not need to answer this question it just make me want to kill the woman / girls that do that and i never ever rape or hurt a girl /woman in my life because if i was to do it ben my ex wife i did it too well that a just one more story about the court giveing her every thing and i had to go live in my car she got the house in LA that i only owe $8,000 on at the time it sold for all most $200,000 and i got 20,000 of it so you see what i mean by the way she was only with me for 3 years and when i started paying on the house i had 30years an had 6years left to paid it off she only live with me for 3 years the court gave her every thing so it not only false rape it just is our courts
  • It happens quite often and is not dealt with it harshly as it should. In addition of putting men, who otherwise may be innocent, in prison for a long time, it hurts those women who actually have been raped.
  • The want to lie, let them get raped.
  • They should get at least 10 years in jail and have to register as sex offenders.
  • I have stated this before and i stand by it. If a women falsely says someone raped her and it is proven in a court of law that he did not, she should be convicted for as much time as the guy would have gotten if he had raped her. This is not a funny matter, how would you like to get convicted to prison and not have done nothing wrong. Let me tell you Prison is a very very very bad place to go.
  • I think they ruin peoples lives and that anybody who does it should be convicted and put in jail. The ramifications of it are similar in horror to that of the rape. Even of you get off those around you will never trust you the same.
  • I think. Jordan. What would Jesus do? Ask yourself that and re think it?!
  • I think there are more pressing problems
  • I personally try my best never to make them.
  • It's a true crime to make a false allegation about something so horribly serious (and jail time is very appropriate for such people), but those who have posted here that it's as bad as being raped or, worse, that such people should be raped (there are some real sickos on AB it seems), need to get a grip or get a shrink or stay the hell away from society at large. Such a skewed perspective is seriously messed up and shows an extraordinary misunderstanding or the gravity of rape, (which should make one worry about that kind of person being at large). . Imagine guys if you were raped by some big sadistic bastard who could do that to you - that would be comparable to a rape allegation for you would it?
  • Lying about a crime is a crime in itself and a serious one.
  • What do you mean "claims"? How do you know if they are real or not? Who decides?
  • This is a hot topic, a false accuser is nothing but a person trying to make a name for themselves. Ruining lives and causing miseries. If a girl run around grinning while the innocent guy sits in the cell. she needs to be tried and convicted for 50 years in the pen. You know false reporters of rape discourage other victims from coming forward to report the crime. How lame can the false reporters get?
  • If a girl made a false rape claim, I suggest to strip her nacked in public and let her been groupraped in all her holes for at least 48 hours in frond of an audience. So other girls can see what happens when they made a false claim.
  • Any woman who would go out of her way to ruin someone elses life by making a false rape claim deserves what's coming to her.

  • I don't think about it. Have better things to think about. But bearing false witness is a crime, regardless of if it's rape, murder or theft.
  • In Leviticus 19:16 God clearly states that one should not slander another, as it could lead to the death of the accused. Slander is sin against God and those who practice it will not inherit the benefits of the
  • i think its mean to accuse someone of something they didnt do
