Quote of the day: false accusers need to be prosecuted to protect integrity of rape victims and because of the devastating effects of false allegations

Applause to District Crown prosecutor Rachel Scott, who defended the prosecution Gail Sherwood:

"We will continue to bring prosecutions for attempting to pervert the course of justice in cases of false allegations of rape. Genuine rape victims need to know that we take their complaints extremely seriously and every attempt will be made to reveal evidence to support them. This case was not only brought to protect the integrity of rape victims but also to demonstrate the devastating effects false allegations can have."
