A married man who was jailed for five years for a violent sex attack has been cleared on appeal after it emerged that his alleged victim made it up.
Warren Blackwell, 36, of Woodford Halse, Northamptonshire, was convicted of indecently assaulting the woman after a New Year's Eve Party in 1998.
The Appeal Court said the conviction was unsafe after hearing that the complainant had an "ability to lie".
Of course, what is meant when a court decides that someone has an "ability to lie" is that, in fact, they did lie and the whole accusation was a total fabrication.
After the hearing Mr Blackwell said the ordeal had made him "a very angry" man.
I'm not fucking surprised, frankly. I, too, would be livid.
Mr Blackwell was jailed for three years at Northampton Crown Court in 1999, but the sentence was later found to be "unduly lenient" and was increased to five years.
He was also placed on the sex offenders' register.
In addition to which, as Mr Blackwell points out, his family have spent "a massive amount of money"; given all of this, we can expect some compensation, eh?
The commission referred to new evidence which gave rise to a "very real doubt" over whether the complainant was a victim of any assault at all.
The court was told the complainant had made "strikingly similar allegations" about other sex attacks, had an "ability to lie" and a possible propensity to self harm.
So, essentially, the "victim" is a self-obsessed nut whose fantasy assault has put an innocent man behind bars and cost his family an immense amount of money.
So you would imagine that this little cunt will be tried for wasting police time and perjury? Er, no...
The court recommended that the complainant's details be shared with police forces across the country in case she tried to repeat the accusations.
What is this? Put her on trial and, if she is guilty, then fine her (with the money being divided between Mr Blackwell and the taxpayer) and lock her away; she has committed the crime of perjury (and is bearing false witness still a crime?) and she is going to get away with... well... fuck all punishment? All that's gioing to happen is that she's going to go on to some kind of False Accuser's Register. What the hell is going on?
Let's hope Mr Blackwell sues the pants off her in a Civil Court and really fucks her...*
* Yes, all bad taste puns intended.
