On Friday, September 18, 2009 a Hofstra University Student returns to school to after being falsely accused of rape. Authorities dropped charges and freed four men, one of which was a Hofstra student, hours after their accuser told law enforcement that she had made up the sexual assault.
The accuser initially said that she had been forcibly tied up and sexually assaulted in a dormitory bathroom. However, after authorities told her that part of the incident was recorded on a cell phone video, the woman admitted the encounters with each of the men were consensual.
The falsely accused suffered from extreme public scrutiny. Their pictures were flashed across the news and they were treated like animals. This is just one case where the alleged victim admits to making up the accusations. It makes one wonder, how many people are serving time for something they did not do?
