The judicary appear to be out of their minds

The family of a woman sent to jail for accusing her husband of rape and then falsely dropping the charges against him yesterday told the Guardian that she had been in an abusive and “volatile” relationship for 10 years.

The 28-year-old was sentenced to eight-months in prison on Friday for perverting the course of justice – not for lying about the rape, but for lying by saying it never happened.
