Girl detained for Bolton taxi rape lie

Another taxi driver, another false accusation. This after the taxi driver gave her a ride home, despite the fact that she didn't have the fare.

The second article link below gives a bit more detail, that not only was she given a 12 month detention, she was given a training order as well.

AfOR, or anyone else for that matter, if you can please give an explanation of what a training order consists of?

A teenager who lied about being raped by a taxi driver in Greater Manchester has been detained for 12 months.

A detective of the Greater Manchester Police said it well:

The man took the girl home when no other driver would and even allowed her to pay her fare the following day, yet she repaid his kindness with a wicked lie that landed him in a police cell.
He had to deal with the associated stigma of being accused of such a grave offence and we wasted a lot of time, effort and money on the investigation when it could have been better spent serving the community.

The scope of our investigation in this incident proves how thoroughly we investigate all reports of rape and I hope this girl's inexcusable actions in no way deter genuine victims from coming forward.
Add to the fact that she was drinking and doing drugs, I would guess this was an accusation used to get out of trouble with her parents.
