- Reaction score
I’d be interested to know how they come to those numbers because any file I’m aware of where it was determined the accusation was false (usually the victim later admitting it), no charges ever came out of the public mischief offence, rather the case against the original accused was simply dropped. “To not discourage real victims”… bullshit excuse.So, your friends deny they did anything, so you chalk that up as a false accusation?
Studies suggest that the rate of false accusations lands between 2-10% of accusations.
On the other hand, ~90% of assaults are not reported.
