Female College Student Gets Arrested After Reported She’d Been Raped
One female college student from the University of Kansas was recently arrested after she had reported being raped.
She allegedly didn’t remember the details because she said that she was drunk. She also told officers that she didn’t want to press charges against the alleged rapist.
But she messed up when he handed over her phone to law enforcement prior to entering the hospital for a rape examination because after the police looked through her phone they learned that she was not being truthful. After looking through her phone it was clear that she had lied and was therefore arrested for falsely reporting a felony crime.
What they discovered was that her text messages revealed that she wasn’t raped
According to The Daily Wire,
As for the KU student, her text messages show that she “fabricated the rape story to effect the relationship between herself and the victim … and her ex-boyfriend,” according to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson.
“The State believes the evidence presented at the preliminary hearing, including: the testimony of (the victim), (her ex-boyfriend), law enforcement officers, and evidence collected by law enforcement, specifically, text messages from the Defendant to her friend …indicate the sexual encounter … was consensual,” Branson said in a statement quoted by the Star.
The woman claimed she had been drinking and didn’t know how she ended up in bed with her ex-boyfriend’s best friend. She claimed to the Star that she joked about the incident with a friend in a text message because, as the outlet claimed, she was “unable at the time to admit she had been raped.”
She only claimed the incident was rape the next day after an acquaintance “threatened to tell people about the incident,” the Star reported.
This is a clear cut example of why we shouldn’t just believe women against men in rape cases for the sole fact that they’re women. I’m not saying we should assume they’re lying either. What I’m advocating for is due diligence in investigation and hard evidence of wrong-doing before a person can be charged with a crime such as rape.
