Girl made false accusation of rape after her ex-boyfriend rejected her

A teenage girl falsely accused ex-boyfriend of drugging and raping her when he refused to rekindle their romance, a court heard.

Hannah Sandover, 18, had been dating her ex-boyfriend, also 18, for nearly a year when they broke up.

She later told a friend he had spiked her water bottle and forced himself on her in the back of his car during a trip to the Westbury White Horse in Wiltshire.

Her worried friend went to the police and Sandover gave a statement saying: "He became forceful and pinned me down, I kept telling him to stop.

"I think he had drugged the water I was drinking."

She claimed she got into the back of car to stretch out in an attempt to ease stomach pains, before her former boyfriend jumped on her.

Sandover also claimed that one of her friends was sitting in the front of the car, but was listening to music through headphones so did not know what was going on.

When she was taken to a clinic for an examination, her story started to change as she admitted she hadn't been drugged.

Sandover admitted she made it all up when her family began to question the story.

She admitted a charge of wasting police time at Salisbury Magistrates' Court, Wiltshire.

Prosecutor Ryan Seneviratine said: "Miss Sandover is extremely lucky that she didn't get charged with perverting the course of justice, only due to her age and the fact she has no previous convictions.

"Her ex-boyfriend has said his confidence in approaching girls has been completely ruined.

"He was kept in custody for five-and-a-half hours and underwent intimate tests. "And all because she wanted to get back at him.

"She had numerous times to say the allegations were lies, but she didn't."

Defending, Moses Tawo said: "She was too scared to admit she had been lying.

"The only person she told the story to was her friend, she never meant for it to be taken to the police and couldn't tell me why she had told lies.

"She has faced some health issues, and when the only relationship she had with anyone ended, she panicked, which she now shows remorse for."

Sandover was bailed for sentence on June 8.

I would lock her up, but that would probably not help. Make her do community service for 5 years at a facility that helps rape victims.

I think guys should start wearing body-cams. Because this is not the first/last story I've seen regarding false accusations. It really puts a stigma on those who actually go through this ordeal and are afraid to speak up or worse, not believed because of the few that lie about it. 10 years community service @ a center that helps rape victims, 5 is way too short. They should also be mandated with minimum hours per month, and put on a register (like sex offenders), so that when they move to a new neighborhood, they have to go to their neighbors to tell them "I lied that I was raped". That should really make anyone think twice about lying about it

To any guys in that area... please stay away from Miss Hannah Sandover as she will ruin your life. There is something mentally wrong with that girl and that problem will not just go away without some professional help.

Simple solution - she's a sex offender now, and should be registered as such.
Wow. So telling a lie, which was recanted before it got completely out of hand, is the equivalent to being a sexual offender? Think you need to give this another thought.

This girl should do some decent community time, like 400 hours, which is 8 hours a week for a year to help actual victims. Or just to go out with the police. She should also issue a written apology to the boy and family.

It's important to teach boys about consent, and what is appropriate consent. We all agree to that. But, on the flip side of the coin, girls should be taught the same thing, and when rape is rape, and when it is not.
