So Easily Done
Psychiatric treatment sought as alternative to prison for woman who falsely accused father of sex assault
"Police called after self-inflicted injuries resulted in hospitalization
CALGARY — A 40-year-old Calgary woman who falsely accused her father of sexually assaulting her should undergo psychiatric counselling and not be sentenced to prison, her lawyer told a provincial court Friday.
On Oct. 5, 2010, Lori Lee Gnam told police, hospital staff and social workers that her father kicked her in the stomach and then injured her during a sexual assault, according to an agreed statement of facts."
