A WOMAN who pretended to have been raped in Fuengirola has had her two year prison confirmed.
Malaga courts declared the two year sentence against the woman who falsely reported a rape case to the Fuengirola National Police valid and rejected the appeal made by her defence lawyer.
The number 14 criminal court in Malaga understood that the woman knowingly gave false information to the police when she claimed that a man took advantage of the fact she had had too much to drink one night in August 2010 to rape her.
A judge had previously considered that there was insufficient evidence to prove that events occurred as the woman reported and sentenced her to two years in prison and a €3,600 fine for making false accusations. She was also ordered to pay €1,000 in damages to the man she accused of the made-up rape.
The woman’s lawyer’s appeal to the Provincial Court was rejected as it saw no reason to modify the sentence and considered the story to have been proved false.
