A transgender waiter has been spared jail despite accusing a man of 23 counts of rape, making the victim’s life a ‘living hell’.
Lucien Harris accused co-worker Ali Malik of rape, of holding a knife to his face and even putting his penis through his letterbox.
However, Harris’s ‘concoctions’, as the complainant himself called them, were disproved by police after they examined the evidence which include CCTV footage and clear alibis, according to local press.
So how come the judge only sentenced Harris to 2 years in prison, suspended for 2 years, ordered her to complete 300 hours of unpaid work and ordered her to pay compensation of £2,500 to the victim?
How can somebody ruin somebody else’s life and walk free? Well, reportedly, the prosecution charged her with perverting the course of justice and didn’t make reference to the false rape accusations…
Isn’t it time to re-think the law? Somebody accused of rape can be named outright, their information splashed all over the internet. But if their accuser is found to be lying, it seems they can walk free pretty easily.
