01) Recent Exoneration of Joshua Horner, Wrongfully Convicted of Sex Abuse, Spotlights Widespread Problem of False Allegations
Thanks to feinmann0!
“Horner’s exoneration highlights the problem of false allegations in criminal cases. According to the National Registry of Exonerations, false allegations/perjury are the most common contributing factors for wrongful convictions, representing 57% of all exonerations. False allegations/perjury are especially common in child sex abuse cases (85% of exonerations) and homicide cases (69% of exonerations).
Nearly one in 10 persons – 9.7% — of respondents to a national survey said they had been falsely accused of sexual assault, domestic violence, or child abuse. Three-quarters of persons claiming to be falsely accused were male.
On college campuses, false allegations of sexual misconduct are believed to be commonplace. In over 100 lawsuits against universities, judges have sided with the accused student. At one university, the training materials openly justify false allegations of sexual assault, claiming that verified ‘lies’ of accusers “should be considered a side effect of an assault.”
I absolutely believe this to be true…
Heck…I have been accused of rape, assault and murder, solely because I have this blog…
…Happily, none of it has any legal bearing [nor basis in fact]…Yet, total strangers have made these heinous charges against me…and then some…
…It’s been suggested I’m a child eating cannibal, as well…
…That doozy came from my BlogSpot era…possibly YouTube era.
There are a lot of people out there, who are straight out warped in the head.
This was a great find…and it’s an underreported problem which the unaware tend to scoff at, whenever we bring it up.
It is an established fact, that false accusations are absolutely rampant, where it comes to “sex crimes”.
