ANOTHER FALSE RAPE ACCUSATION: The woman who accused a stranger she found on Facebook of rape – and how it ruined her victim’s life. “In an act of inexplicable viciousness, 31-year-old fantasist Linsey Attridge chanced upon a photograph of Philip and his then 14-year-old brother James and used it to back up a story she’d concocted. She’d done it, apparently, in order to win some sympathy with her boyfriend, when she feared his affections were waning. It led to Philip, a wholly innocent chef, being harassed in the street and shunned at the school gates. He is still fighting, two years later, to salvage his battered reputation.”
The penalties for this sort of thing need to be severe enough to discourage it.
Her name is Linsey Attridge.
