  • If their lie did NOT result in a guilty conviction, then punish them with Slander/Libel. If the guy is sentenced to prison, the female who lied should serve time equal to what she made the man go through. She should be required to pay back all expenses, including court costs and money lost due to time away from work, as well as for pain and suffering to both the man and anyone else close to him who got hurt as a result. Also, she should be barred from any position of influence and power, both in her career and, God forbid, in the case she tries to run for office anywhere. Try to destroy an innocent life means you deserve to have yours destroyed. This is in the case of a female blatantly making up a false accusation. I do not think this should apply to a true victim of rape who just simply cannot get the rapist convicted.

  • What punishment, it truly appropriate, when she falsely accuses him? That accusation, is on his record, for the rest of his life, and biases anyone, seeing that record! It is not a simple thing, and easy to fix! He is fucked, and will face, bias, and judgment through the rest of his life. How do you make make that right, with just jail time?
    I would hope that once she was convicted, of the false accusation, that his record would be completely expunged of any wrong-doing, but any media coverage would still remain, haunting him, the rest of his life!

  • If it’s proved to 100% be false (because I can’t imagine anything sadder than a woman/man who’s been raped and then juridically punished for speaking out) then they should go to jail. It’s such a selfish and horrible thing to do.

    However - the people saying they should receive the same punishment the alleged rapist would get. Really? I get that revenge seems fair in that sense, that if the accuser was ready to give this innocent person this punishment they should get it- but sentences can’t be based on primal feelings. The severity of the two situations are so different - accusing someone of something and raping someone? One is just words, the other is forcing yourself onto someone screaming no, giving them scars for life. The logic doesn’t add up.

    • I disagree. I would say a false rape accusation is FAR worse than rape as far as damage caused. One (rape) is just a few minutes of suffering. The other (jail time from false accusation of rape) is years of suffering. Given the choice, I would much rather be raped than falsely accused of rape.

    • @starfyredragon you are the most inconsiderate and brainless waste of air on earth if you think that being raped amounts to mere minutes of suffering. If you dont know what you're talking about, its probably a good idea if you shut the fuck up😠

    • @NCR_Ranger I know _exactly_ what I'm talking about. I have been victim to both. False rape accusation is MUCH worse.

  • As an inexperienced and let's face it, naive young man, you probably only think about one side of the story. However, fining alleged rape victims is a two sided sword. If you fine women who can't prove they have been assaulted then many if not most women will think twice before reporting their assault. This will have a deterrent effect on victims. What if they can't prove it for sure? What if there is only circumstantial evidence? Will they be sued and fined on top of their horrible experience? Will they be shunned?
    If a person is exonerated they can usually file a defamation lawsuit against the person who has falsely accused them of a crime.

    • Lack of proof is different than being proven to have falsified a report. I don’t think the OP is talking about cases that lack proof... I think he is referring to more obvious “proven liar” cases. I don’t think there are many. I think it would have to be a “victim turns out to be in a different country than the offender at the time of the crime” type of cases. Again... there aren’t many cases like that. There’s usually either proof it happened, or lack thereof.

    • @Glue-Sniffer That's not what the person meant. Go read it again. They're talking about proven lies. My cousin was falsely accused of rape and sexual abuse and the girl that falsely accused barely got any punishment. She should've been thrown in jail.

    • Let's explain it again for your little small brains to comprehend. Sha we? If a person is raped when she was drugged or unconscious or if some time has passes before she reports it there will be no dna evidence. If she is kidnapped and raped and some time passes before she is free then there will be no dna evidence. If she hesitates because she has been crushed and is devastated from the event and needs to gather her strength begore going to the police and facing the scrunity over there, there will be no dna evidenve. There is a fine line between not being able to prove a crime and being accused of lying.

    1. A proven false accuser, like it or not, makes genuine rape victims less credible.
    2. The false accuser just destroyed a life. Even if the person is cleared, it causes psychological damage. The person, even if cleared, still is known as someone accused.
    I have an uncle in such a situation. He wound up burying himself in his work, refusing to have a social life, and does not trust any woman.

    • That sucks. Was this a while ago?

    • It was 10 years ago.. The accusation was made when in fact he was in different state on a construction site. It nearly destroyed him professionally. It’s left him with a lot of trust issues.

  • Jail. Intentionally wanting to ruin someone's life?
    Get the hell out if here that shit

  • Jail time without a doubt.

  • Get the same sentence

  • Jail time, minimal the time the person they accused falsely would have served. In addition, she should be placed on the sex offenders register.

    • Have them marked with a hot iron that says " false rape accuser.

  • They should be publicly anally raped

    • @purplepoppy but how will you know if it's genuinely a false accusation, by the woman? You'll rely on the court verdict? If the man accused of rape is found innocent, then the woman is automatically raped as punishment? You do know that false accusations are actually very few, compared to the very large numbers of genuine rape cases and unreported rapes - against women? Yeah, men do get raped, and there are false accusations, but both those numbers are absolutely dwarfed by the real rape cases. Despite what all the 'men' on GaG would have you believe. Is rape OK?

    • Where there is clear proof that she simply lied about being raped she should be punished.

    • that was my first thought as well, but the sort of girl who falsely accuses someone of rape is more likely to be hurt more by la douleur exquise than the pain of getting their butt stretched. So, instead, they should be put in a pillory next to two sentinel "ugly chicks" who volunteer to suck the cock of any guy who passes by. Once they do so, the spit it onto the face of the false accuser. That way she gets no attention from men, but has to deal with all the messy shame from women who would normally be considered her lessers.

  • Same as what would have happened to the dude.

  • Be given the sentence the dude would've gotten if he went to jail

  • Should be charged with Slander or Libel (depending on which is more accurate) under Defamation Law at a very minimum, as that is what they have done.

    • That is the current law. But I think it's not severe enough

  • Jail.

  • I think the same as they were trying to put on the guy.

  • They should be charged with filing a false police report and they should be tried for that crime. If convicted, they should receive a penalty commensurate with the penalty that would have been paid by the person falsely accused.

  • They should go to jail. They knowingly tried to ruin a man's life. That false accusations can still ruin their life. At their job, if someone says they don't feel safe around them cuz of the false rape accusation then you're going to get fired. The women should go to jail for a very long time.

  • I mean technically its called false police report but I'd say like 5 years tops. Even if the case or accusation were false there's always gonna be a lingering cloud over that person.

  • If it is truly a false accusation then jail time no question

  • They ought to suffer it. Karma.

  • Arrange an actual rape for her so she will know what situation she should report on.

  • They should be sent to jail also they should pay some money to the man or men they falsely accused of rape.

  • They should be punished harshly.

  • Make it a felony and give Jail time, publicly shamed and sued.

  • I think some countries have a criminal mischief charge or something like perverting the course of justice. Most punishment are there to be a deterrent to people in the future doing it. While causing a lot of trouble they also hurt the cause of true rape victims.
    There may also be a whole other discussion about what is sexual assault but probably leave that for another day I always welcome more clarity when it comes to the law.

  • They should have to be punished once deemed medical level distress. When people are distressed they can get very confused.
