TROY — A Wapakoneta woman will be paying authorities $892 for the overtime detectives used to investigate her false claim of being raped.

Melissa Turner, 40, told the sheriff’s office May 19 she was raped on the banks of the Great Miami River, under the Eldean Bridge north of Troy. She admitted May 21 that she had lied, according to court documents.

She pleaded guilty to the felony charge in November and was sentenced Monday, Jan. 12 to community control and order to reimburse the Miami County Sheriff’s Office….

She was ordered to complete two years of community control, fined $1,000 and ordered to make restitution [$892]. If she violates condition of the probation, she faces up to one year in prison…. Full Story (2018 04 17: That link no longer function but this link leads to copies of articles that report on the case.)

F4L:  Never mind that she committed a crime that could have brought a man to prison for 25 years to life, her little lie that is so “out of character” cost her for all intents and purposes practically nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

In the US, there are an estimated 520,000 false rape allegations a year — 98.1% of all reported cases.  (Eeva Sodhi, Debunking Domestic Violence Statistics; Rape)

There would be far fewer false allegations of rape if the women who lie about having been raped would be sentenced so that it will truly hurt them.

To use false rape allegations to hurt men is violence by proxy.

    I am and Australian who was wrongly accused of Rape and another 9 Felony Charges in USA in 2008… I spent 115 days in a County Prison while the female [minor who advertised herself as 19] on a Adult Dating website was getting all the sympathy from a whole County…
    Now I morally was guilty but certainly not legally… For the majority of people who have not been through this degrading experience, I say, ‘ask those who really know what it is like to spend time in Prison for something you did not do’, Yes there are some really nasty peices of crap in society and they deserve to be punished, however when a female or male has wrongly accused someone of rape and it is proven or in my case the female ‘recanted’ her story, well she had to as the Text messages and pc records show she was lying, these people should be charged or given treatment to ensure that there is a deterent to others. I did not get as much as an apology from anybody, and some people say to me ‘take civil action’, sure take civil action so that you go endure all the past again, no thank you! My life was ruined, I say ‘was’ ruined, but I have been lucky to have the best family and friends to lift me up and fowards…
    So to all the rule makers and decision makers ‘THINK’ very hard when you make your decisions from your Office, and imagine it is your son,father or husband that has been ‘falsely accused’.

    I am writing a Ebook about my experience and it will be out in Sept 09 its called “This, Too, Will Pass”, might just be worth a read people!!! email me on this_too_willpass@hotmail.com if you would like to be included on the list to ensure you know when the Ebook is available
