Woman jailed after 5 false rape allegations

A woman who made a string of false rape allegations against five men in eight years was behind bars last night.

Leanne Black, 32, repeatedly cried rape with bogus sex assault reports to police after rowing or breaking up with her former partners.

In one case, Black claimed she had been drugged and raped. In another she told police a boyfriend kidnapped and molested her.

A court heard that her innocent partners would have faced up to five years in jail if they had been found guilty of such serious sexual allegations.

However, Black was herself jailed for two years, with a judge condemning her actions, telling her that genuine rape victims would be undermined by her lies.

Bringing a false charge of rape should carry the same penalty as if the accused had been convicted of rape. Via Leanne Black is finally jailed after FIVE false rape allegations against her ex-boyfriends in eight years | Mail Online.
