Community service for girl who made false rape claim

A 17-year-old girl has been given a 60 hour suspended community service sentence for falsely claiming she had been drugged, raped and made pregnant by an ex boyfriend last year.

The boy spent four days in custody after the girl made the accusations. It was not until April 2010 that the girl finally admitted she had made up the story.

The public prosecution department had called for a one month suspended jail term.
