"a Woman's lies did to the man was sitting innocently in custody for seven months and lost home, job and friends."
"Is two months' imprisonment, a reasonable price for a ruined life and a major police investigation which was made in vain?"
"the district Court considers, in principle, it. I write in principle, then the court in its judgment yesterday, the assessed sanctions in relation to the young woman's crime to one year and six months in prison. But instead combined the two months with probation."
"the Reasons for this is part of the law in the higher school, a topic I will come back to."
"in the Summer of 2006, it notified the woman to the police that she has been raped by a man. Preliminary investigation was begun, but then she did not know who the man was, and the investigation failed to lead on it was after a period of time down."
"But a decade later, which showed a track up and a man resident in Australia, came to be suspect. He was arrested, was extradited to Sweden and then had the lawsuit against him would commence been in custody for seven months."
"the Woman amended, however, at the last moment. She admitted that she lied. The man was released and was acquitted."
"Why find this? In interviews she explained that it involved a voluntary sexual intercourse and that the allegation of rape just flew out of her."
"the Woman felt relieved when the inquiry was closed down in 2006. But then, many years later, resumed again, she thought that it was better to hold on to their story than to admit that she lied all these years."
"Only when the trial would begin, she understood the seriousness. She didn't want an innocent person would end up in jail."
"It all ended with that the woman was charged for, as it is called, and false accusation. She had not only lied, but during the whole time the man spent in custody, held on to their lie in police questioning, after police questioning."
"During the hearing he told us about a disaster. The mental breakdown to sit in custody for an offence of this kind. How he lost his job, his accommodation, his partner and the large parts of their social circle."
"the Allegations, he says, has not gone to wash away. He has been hanged out on the net and has still far from recovered economically and socially."
"So what is there to say about the punishment?"
"It's going to look at it in different ways. It is possible to ask if there is justice in that he was innocent in custody for seven months and she won't have to away by two months. It goes to say that nothing gets better by strict punishment of a young man who went astray in lies and not be found out."
"But it is also possible to see the principle at issue. The lie in this way takes the unnecessarily large police resources in the space and affects the reliability of the judicial system. So far, this is about serious crime."
"There is talk in the legal world if artbrott. That is, offences which society looks extra serious and where the penalty is in the rule will be in prison despite the fact that there really is room for alternative sanctions. Serious drink-driving and violence against officials are common examples."
"But also crimes that may affect the courts' ability to judge correctly is in the directory. Perjury, and abuse in a court of law. However, not a false accusation, strangely enough."
"the Prosecutor has not yet decided whether the judgment should be appealed. But the man's lawyer, Peter Nilsson, is prepared to push the case forward on its own."
"It would be a charity. The supreme court needs to review this matter."
