Canfield girl recants rape accusation

Published: Tue, December 1, 2009 @ 12:03 a.m.


CANFIELD — A monthlong rape investigation has ended after the victim recanted her accusation.

Canfield police began investigating the alleged rape of a 14-year-old Canfield Middle School girl at the beginning of November. A teacher at the school had approached the district’s police officer, Paul Lasky, with information about the alleged incident, according to police reports.

The accuser told the teacher she was attacked by a 16-year-old male juvenile in mid-August on the bike path in Canfield.

The case was closed Friday after the accuser admitted to police that she was not raped. She told detectives she and the teen boy were on the bike path together where they briefly engaged in consensual sexual intercourse.

The girl said she made up the rape allegation because she was angry with him for not wanting to be in a relationship with her, according to a police report.

No criminal charges will be filed, and the case has been turned over to the Canfield Juvenile Division for assessment of the filing of a false police report by the accuser.

This is the reason why when this does really happen to someone, its another reason why they do not want to report it

Now is she going to be prosecuted for this? Probably not! What if she had stuck to her story and this boy's life had been ruined? Wouldn't be the first time!

Poor little innocent girl!!!

The moral here is . . ..

Do not get on the wrong trail in life .

In my younger days a wise old man told me not to have sex with a girl unless I intended to marry her . These words when heeded can stave off many problems .

I fail to see what this has to do with not reporting a rape. If anything, this encourages false accusations because there is NO PENALTY for lying. Remember Duke in North Carolina? That bimbo got to write a book, While the lives of three young men were destroyed. Our young boys need protection from this type of predator. Lock her up.
