CRY RAPE GIRL CAGED Mum-of-two said she was as­saulted by her boyfriend in a su­per­mar­ket car park

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

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.”
