False Claims Threaten Those Accused

Okabe & Haushalter Nov 3, 2011 Rape

The Montage Beverly Hills hotel on North Canon Drive was the site of a recent rape claim made on Wednesday, November 2, 2011.

The front lobby desk at the luxury hotel received a call at approximately 1:30 a.m. from a frantic woman claiming to have been raped in one of the hotel’s rooms. According to the woman’s phone call, she was escorted to her room by two men. Once inside, the situation quickly became intense enough to provoke substantial fear. It was at this moment that the desperate woman made the decision to ring down to the lobby claiming rape.

The hotel staff immediately took action by notifying the police and the woman was promptly taken to the hospital for observation.

Upon further investigation into the matter, the accusations have been determined baseless. In the end, the entire incident could have been avoided.

The situation begs the question, “How many more accusations as severe as rape are no more than a matter of crying wolf?” Furthermore, “How many of these false claims do not get resolved, wrongly implicating the accused?”

The situation described above perfectly portrays the possibility of a defendant being wrongly charged. Not all cases are dropped as quickly and easily as the rape claim made earlier this week.
