H/T To Bucko in the comments of the last post:
A WOMAN who told police she had been ‘violently raped’ has admitted she was lying.
Elizabeth Wilkinson, 20, of Skipton Old Road, Foulridge, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice after claiming she had been sexually attacked by man at his house in Colne last September.
As a result of her allegation a 22-year-old man was arrested and interviewed at Burnley station as police detectives launched an investigation into what they described as a ‘horrific attack’.
“This is a life-changing offence and is treated as such. In making this false allegation Elizabeth Wilkinson has undermined the genuine victims of this horrific crime.
“An innocent man lost his liberty and has suffered considerable emotional distress as a result of her lies.”
Wilkinson will appear at Burnley Crown Court for sentencing on Friday July 30.
I hope you hear Big Susan calling you from H block, Elizabeth.
