This entire story is too bizarre...not to mention disgusting and despicable. The reality is, this happens far more often than is ever publicized. A travesty? Most definitely. The damage for the innocent young man has already been done, but amends are seriously in order.
It doesn't even make sense that this foolish girl fabricated such a lie, to cover for being caught by her mother, while viewing porn? ! Why the huge leap from a porn magazine to having been RAPED? What a dummy. She could have said that "So & So," left the magazine at the house and she was simply looking to see what it was.....if she was so horribly frightened of her parents.
Regardless of her lenient sentence, she now has a record of having committed perjury. I am more concerned that she be made to pay every single cent of the $90,000 the young man was awarded.....even if it takes her the rest of her life.
That amount isn't really fair, to be honest. Four years of his young life, I'm certain, is worth more than that.
If you want to know about extremely egregious cases of our judicial system atrocities.....there are thousands you can research. You can start with the Marty Tankleff case (New York)....if you want your blood to boil and the top of your head to explode. THAT poor young man went through the HELL of all hells......due to crooked, lying, immoral, frauds, thieves and murderers.....prosecutorial misconduct, dirty cops...you name it. Worst Travesty of Justice in history, in the state of New York.
Marty is finally out and free.....but nothing short of hanging the sleazy bastards by their toes, in a public square, just before they're locked up and hooked up to a chain gang, will ever be enough for the pigs that put Marty there for half of his young life.
