Under pressure from women’s groups, English officials recently backed down in giving the same anonymity protections to men accused of rape as they do to their alleged victims. Emma Blunden, 21, of Reading, Berkshire should give them second thoughts. Blunden received two years after repeatedly accusing men of raping her.
Given the costs to these innocent men, a two-year sentence is a rather low punishment. However, most such false accusers receive no punishment at all. That was the case of Crystal Gail Mangum who brought false charges against members of the Duke lacrosse team. A previous woman who lied about a rape in England received only one year despite ruining the life of the accused man.
Blunden was convicted of two counts of perverting the course of justice after making false allegations against four men — all of whom were arrested on her allegations.
