Short and sweet, describes this news report. The girl, afraid of getting in trouble, falsely claimed she was raped, and will get no punishment. How long before she does this again, but with an innocent man fingered as the accused? At the very least, she should be on probation until she is 18, and have to reimburse the police for the time and manpower used in the suspect search. Otherwise, we are enabling someone to become a serial false accuser.
No punishment for teen's false rape claim.
DAYTON — The 13-year-old girl who said she was raped on North Keowee Street admitted that she made up the story because she feared getting into trouble for being out about 6 p.m. Sunday, March 29, Dayton police said.
The girl told police she was pulled behind a closed business while walking home from a friend's house, police said. Montgomery County sheriff's deputies and Five Rivers MetroParks officers helped in the suspect search.
Police said the girl, who confessed at Children's Medical Center of Dayton, will not face any charges.
