Girl uses Fifty Shades of Grey as basis for false rape claims against her father

Appalling. What an indictment of the police and the CPS. Key extracts:

In a tearful courtroom confession, a daughter has admitted using the best-selling sadomasochistic sex novel Fifty Shades of Grey as the basis for a series of false rape claims against her father…

Defence barrister Cathy McCulloch had, she said, never read the novel until she was called in late to defend the father, who was accused of eight incestuous rapes over a six-year period…

In her blog about the case, Ms McCulloch said the prospects for the father initially looked bleak.

“His daughter had given a compelling interview to the police and my client had absolutely no real defence other than ‘I did not do it’,” she wrote…

Nothing might have come of this quirk, however, were it not for the fact that during Ms McCulloch’s otherwise routine first meeting with the father – on  the day of the trial – he happened to mention that his daughter’s favourite book was “about a millionaire who takes a young woman under his wing and ‘teaches her about art’.”

“He had no idea what Fifty Shades of Grey was about,” added Ms McCulloch.  “Neither I nor my instructing solicitor’s representative had read the book (honest!).”…

Ms McCulloch, a former police officer who is now a barrister at Church Court Chambers, persuaded the judge to adjourn the case so she could spend an afternoon and an evening reading the novel.

Within seven minutes of her beginning her cross-examination, the daughter burst into tears in the witness box and admitted she had made the whole thing up to teach her strict father a lesson.

Describing a cross-examination she had expected to last between two and three hours, Ms McCulloch wrote: “I started gently to put the complainant at ease. She agreed her father was strict, and that she was really annoyed with him for “ruining her life”.

“I then went straight to my final question – that she was so angry with her father that she had made this all up. She wavered.

“I raised the striking similarities between her interview and the book. She suddenly broke and said I was absolutely right. She had made the whole thing up because she was angry with her father and wanted to teach him a lesson.

“I asked her whether she had got all the ideas from Fifty Shades of Grey. She confirmed this book, and others – which she named. After seven minutes we were finished.

    Please, start treating today’s women according to what they deserve. Forget about being a gentleman. All you do is make the situation worse for men. Start behaving in a realistic, necessary manner because today’s situation requires it.

    It’s as if false rape accusers have no concept that their actions have real consequences in the world.

  3. When will you people finally have enough? WHEN!?!?!?

  4. “Men’s rights activists must wake up and realize that the time for trying to counter the hypocrisy with rationality – with essentially male arguments, using facts and truth, in the hope that sense will prevail – is not going to make any difference to the relentless feminist long march on men” -Herbert Purdy ICMI-16

    “Let us be clear, the removal of fathers from the lives of their children is … public … policy“. -Robert Franklin ICMI-14

    Being informed is not enough. Knowledge, by itself, is not power, but it holds the potential for power if we use it as a guide for action. Truth always will be defeated by tyranny unless we are willing to step forward and enter the battle. The future belongs, not to ideas, but to people who act on those ideas. If you truly want to make a difference in the world, you will need to get out from behind your keyboards. G. Edward Griffen

  5. And STILL no consequences for the liar.
    Shameful repugnant travesty.
    What prevents other liars from doing the same?

    I hope that, at the very least, the father, mother and family of this evil little bitch disown her for life. Some things are unforgivable and this is certainly one of them.

    I hope the Judge joins the others who are starting to censure the CPS. Very clearly this was yet another case where the Police and then the CPS had stopped the pursuit of truth and justice in favour of “I believe”. The point is that the Police should investigate not simply incriminate and should have checked the complainants story as should the CPS. This is forming a pattern of weak or suspect cases going to court with the obvious political driver from the DPP. One can only hope that Judges will act with integrity to “push back” this perversion of justice.

    I can see the response to every false rape accusation now.

    “Have you now or ever in the past, read fifty shades of grey or any other adult fiction book?”

    “have now or ever read material( including online) pertaining to how to accuse another party of a sexual crime or how a person maybe accused of such a crime?”

    i feel sorry for the father because he effectivilty has to disown his daugther until she leaves the family home and from this point onwards he will never have a unwritten/unrecorded conversation with her alone.

    the CPS .. what is it about them( and the police) that demonstrate such incompentence in judgement.These people are supposed to be qualified in law in order to work in a decision making role in the CPS. Perhaps this will become the basis of a lecture unit in the law degree about the practice of due diligence when making life changinging decisions and upholding the law.

    every cock up by the CPS should be held as a public record of incompetence( and the cost ) of the one person responsible alison suanders( because the buck stops with the DPP), also the names of each person who made the decision to give her the job should on record. Isn’t it time for a public performance appraisal of alison saunders and those who vouched for her.

    She is undermining the credibility of the law. the next time I hear feminists complaining that a woman should be in charge because of her gender, I shall ask them if they are either having a saunders or proudman moment)

    The most frightening aspect of the case for men in general is the defence barrister admitting

    “His daughter had given a compelling interview to the police and my client had absolutely no real defence other than ‘I did not do it’,”

    In other words, there WAS NO EVIDENCE and the father could have been found guilty if he had not been able to prove his innocence. PROVING innocence is usually impossible, which is why our justice system is supposedly based on the concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty’. This case is another clear example where the man walks into court considered ‘guilty as charged’ and must fight for his freedom.
