BLONDE JAILED FOR FOURSOME ORGY ‘RAPE’ LIES
Three men she regretted having sex with held for 50 hours
A WOMAN who falsely claimed she was raped by three men because she regretted having group sex with them has been jailed for two years.
Rosie Dodd claimed the men, aged 21, 23 and 25, assaulted her in a house in Clifton, Nottingham, in the early hours of June 4.
The trio were arrested after Dodd, 20, said they had all raped her after she met them during a night out in the city.
The men spent nearly 50 hours in custody before being released on bail after maintaining Dodd had willingly had sex with them.
Police became suspicious after carrying out further enquiries and challenged Dodd about her account.
She then admitted she had made up the rape claims as she regretted having consensual sex with the trio.
Detective Constable Gina Farrell, who led the police investigation, said after the case at Nottingham Crown Court: “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 who were 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.
“Also, the time our trained officers spent with her could have been spent with someone who really needed our help.”
Dodds, from Nottingham, was caged for two years after previously pleading guilty to perverting the course of justice.
Det Insp Stephen Waldram, head of the force’s Rape Investigation Team, said: “People lie that they’ve been raped for a multitude of reasons – like having regrets about having sex with a person, or as a way of getting back at someone.
“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 things they didn’t do.
“It’s important to stress that anyone who contacts us to say they have been assaulted will be treated with sensitivity and respect.
“It can be incredibly difficult for victims of rape to come forward to police and tell us what’s happened to them, which is why it’s so important for us to prosecute those who take up our time by lying to us.
“I would urge genuine victims to come forward and tell us if they have been raped or sexually assaulted so we can we begin to bring those responsible to justice.
“And I would remind anyone considering making a false report to think again – we carry out extremely thorough investigations and their lies will be exposed.”
