Update on ‘Woman held captive in bushland for 4 days’

By skerbo - 25 March 2009 37

There was an item posted back in July 08 on riot act http://the-riotact.com/?p=8046. Just thought I would update that today the accused faced the ACT Magistrates court and was found innocent and cleared of all charges.

I hope this girl who has told all these lies is punished by the legal system.

Surely slander and wasting police and government resources is a crime?

Spideydog you may think that I am biased and fair call. But just because I know the accused does not mean that Im about to jump on here and start writing lies.

I did not start this thread to slander the girl, I started this thread to update the public on the outcome as I have seen the pain this man and his family have endured these past 8 months and I think he deserves his name cleared.

What were the actual reason charges were dropped ?? Lack of evidence or the victim confessed to making story up ??

Quote from OP: “I hope this girl who has told all these lies is punished by the legal system.”

Remember this is coming from a biased source – a friend of the accused.

If it was dropped due to “lack of evidence”, we then shouldn’t be jumping on the alleged victim stating they made the story up …..

Correct. like I said above it is a huge difference

Granny surely there would have to be?
Im sure plenty of people have lied to police before but this girls lie made police go on a manhunt which surely chewed up alot of police resources and tax payers dollars.

If this is true it is most unfortunate.

Women who do such a thing just make the legal process and community attitudes more difficult for real victims, let alone ruining the lives of the accused and their family and friends.

Are there penalties for this kind of behaviour?

Thanks for the info Skidbladnir, will see what he thinks.

What do you think JB?

Skidbladnir 2:32 pm 25 Mar 09

If A.K wants to tell us his side of the story, Jb will probably give it a profile.

Just re-read the original story. This news makes some of the comments there more than a bit of a laugh….calls for a jail sentence of life, or even capital punishment!

Justbands thats why I decided to report on this. Shows that we shouldnt jump on the media bandwagon every time we read something.

Sorry ‘colourful sydney racing identity’, I did not word myself correctly in the first post, the charges have been dropped. The police wanted to drop them quite a while back but because the media had made such a big deal out of it the dpp decided to press on. They have now come to there senses and dropped the charges.

was he found not guilty or were the charges dropped? There is a very, very big difference.

skerbo 2:22 pm 25 Mar 09

I am a friend of the accused.
The charges have been dropped.
After a gruelling 8 months of having his name slandered across the tabloids and being locked up like a criminal this man deserves some slander free posts.

Tooks 2:19 pm 25 Mar 09

Found innocent? That’s a new ruling.
