A mother was jailed for two years today for crying rape against a man she met on a dating website.
Jennifer Day, 34, who made the false allegation against former boyfriend Andrew Saxby after a row, was told by the judge that she had undermined efforts to treat genuine rape victims fairly and sympathetically
The court also heard that Mr Saxby was subjected to 'degrading and upsetting' examinations while being held by police for ten hours.
Judge Ian Graham said the investigation had wasted £4,000 of taxpayers' money and 270 police man hours
He added: 'The police have put great stores on providing sympathetic treatments of women who make genuine complaints of rape and you abused that.
'You have undermined and jeopardised the efforts that are being made about the need to treat genuine victims of rape properly, fairly and sympathetically.
'The offence is in itself a serious one, it has terrible consequences potentially and actually for the victim and wider implications for those women who have genuinely been raped.'
They began a relationship, but the court heard that she was also seeing another man.
In January last year, the couple rowed after Mr Saxby accused her of having another man at her home. Afterwards, Day dialled 999 and accused Mr Saxby of rape.
Day burst into tears as she was taken down to the cells. Boo-fucking-hoo, bitch.
