Derby woman jailed for 'revenge' rape claim: she admits she was "just being evil"

A 21-year-old Derby woman has been jailed for 16 months for falsely claiming a former boyfriend raped and indecently assaulted her.

Amber Mills of Leacroft Road, Derby, pleaded guilty to two counts of perverting the course of justice.

The judge at Derby Crown Court said she had made "planned, despicable, determined and sustained attempt at revenge" on her victim.

Derbyshire police said it had spent 40 hours investigating the case.

Mills told police that a man had exposed himself to her on a Derby street in October 2010 and later raped her.

She later admitted that she was "just being evil".
