A WOMAN jailed for making a false rape claim says the lie cost her “everyone’s respect”.
Kirsty Debanks said she was in a “bad place” when she made the allegation against her boyfriend and regretted it instantly.
The 21-year-old – who alleged Chris Newitt raped her in her home last July – urged women not to make the mistakes she did.
A council sexual abuse boss last night said false allegations can put off genuine rape victims from going to police [oh, is that all - anything else?].
After the claim, Mr Newitt was arrested, interviewed and held for about six hours."
"Debanks – released in August from an eight months prison sentence – said: “I said it and I wanted to retract it straight away."
