Rosie Dodd Falsely Accuses 3 Men of Rape, Gets 2 Years in Jail

| by Michael Allen

Rosie Dodd, 20, falsely claimed that she was raped by three men (ages 21, 23 and 25) simply because she regretted having sex with them in her home in Nottinghamshire, England.

The men spent nearly 50 hours in police custody before being released on bail, reports the Daily Mail. Dodd, meanwhile, has been sentenced to two years in prison for her actions.

Apparently, police became suspicious after challenging Dodd about her account of the triple rape. Dodd later told the Nottingham Crown Court that she had made up the rape accusations because she regretted having consensual sex with the three men, whom she met at a bar.

Detective Constable Gina Farrell told the Daily Mail: ‘We take every report of rape and sexual assault extremely seriously, just as we did in this case. But it soon became apparent that there were inconsistencies with Dodd’s account. The three men accused of rape were quite badly affected by the damaging accusations and Dodd has never shown an ounce of remorse for what she put them through."

Detective Inspector Stephen Waldram stated: "There is no justification for lying about something so serious and incredibly damaging and police actively investigate a false claim just as thoroughly as a genuine one to ensure innocent people are not convicted for something they didn’t do."
