CRY RAPE GIRL CAGED Mum-of-two said she was assaulted by her boyfriend in a supermarket car park
A WOMAN who has TWICE made false rape claims against men has been jailed for eight months.
Mother-of-two Emma Saxon claimed she was raped in a BMW car on the lower deck of a supermarket car park.
But it was all a pack of lies concocted when a man she was having a relationship with after meeting him online failed to show up.
Victim Martin Blood spent 14 hours in a police cell and suffered the indignity of an intimate medical examination while the police spent weeks investigating before finally concluding the claim was a hoax.
A court heard Saxon, 23, was given a community penalty in 2007 after a similar false allegation against a former boyfriend.
The prosecution said a man had rung the police saying Saxon had been raped in the car at a Sheffield supermarket ten minutes beforehand by a man called Martin.
An incident team swung into action and police traced the car’s driver within 20 minutes.
Officers went to his address but found the car’s engine cold in the driveway and a dry patch where the car was standing, though it had been raining heavily.
The court was told that it took a month for six police officers and a detective inspector to finally rule that the allegation was groundless.
Mr Blood told police he met Saxon on a dating site and for him it was a purely sexual relationship but that she wanted something more. They would often exchange texts and arrange to meet up.
Saxon, of Sheffield admitted perverting the course of justice by making a false rape allegation.
Jailing her at Sheffield Crown Court Judge Michael Murphy said: “Rape is such a terrible, diabolical offence that it is always treated very seriously in these courts.
“It is a most serious allegation for one person to make against another. It is truly awful if it is untrue.”
AWFUL: Judge rapped Saxon for her untrue claims
