Not many understand that false r*pe accusation is a grievous offense.
So they go ahead to accuse innocent people of r*pe with the hope of ruining their lives and their social appearances.
This conscienceless act was one that Jemma Beale found pleasure in. However, her atrocities soon caught up with her when her plans against an innocent man backfired.
In 2017, Jemma Beale from Hounslow, West London, was jailed for 10 years after being found guilty of making four different false r*pe allegations over the three years.
She claimed that she was r*ped by nine men and s*xually assaulted by six in four various encounters.
Unfortunately, Jemma’s false r*pe accusations led to the court sentencing an innocent man, Mahad Cassim, to seven years imprisonment in 2010.
During her trial, she was found guilty of four counts of perjury and four counts of perverting the course of justice and was termed a serial liar. While sentencing her, Southwark judge, Nicholas Loraine-Smith stated:
“This trial has revealed, what was not then obvious, that you are a very, very convincing liar and you enjoy being seen as the victim.”
“These offenses usually began as a drunken attempt to get your partner’s sympathy or perhaps to arouse her jealousy. They each began impulsively, but chilling is how you persisted in making allegations which you knew were untrue even to the extent of committing and repeating perjury.”
Prosecutor Madeleine Moore revealed to the court how her claims had cost the police 6,400 hours, £250,000, and a trial cost of £109,000.
In all of this, Lawrence Henderson, Beale’s attorney, maintained her innocence while trying to appeal against the court’s sentence. He said:
“Ms. Beale stands by the claims she made in this matter, and if she had her time again, she would again plead not guilty to these matters and contest the ritual.”
Beale’s False Accusations Could Trivialize Other R*pe Cases
While looking at her from his seat, the Judge branded her act as “manipulative.” She was not only a liar; she was manipulative and fraudulent. He stated:
“These false allegations of r*pe, false allegations which will inevitably be widely publicized, are likely to have the perverse impact of increasing the likelihood of guilty men going free. Cases such as this bring a real risk that a woman who has been r*ped or s*xually assaulted may not complain to the police for fear of not being believed.”
