False rape accusers should go to jail.
It is the only way to stop false accusations which not only ruin the reputations of the men, but make it harder for women who are truly sexually assaulted to come forward.
It was proven that Courtney Jean Thornton lied about Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson raping her, but she will face no charges, because the DA doesn’t want to put an accuser on trial.

Miss Thornton only said she had been raped after Anderson stopped returning her messages and didn’t want to be her boyfriend.
It was simply a lie and a lie that will always be hanging over Anderson’s head, even though there will be no repercussions for Thornton. She admitted point blank to the police.
The prosecutors made clear at the news conference that there were doubts about her first statement to police. They disclosed she had recounted to a close female friend the next day “intimate details” about her sexual activity with Anderson and said she had a great time.
Prosecutors pointed out the accuser had acknowledged that she never told Anderson to stop during his time at her Norman apartment.
One friend told police Thornton had said “this would be a ‘great thing’ for her political career following the Air Force,” The Oklahoman has learned. The friend told police Thornton had said “female-empowered political organizations would love something like this.”
That is wrong and she should be ashamed of herself. Miss Thornton released a statement saying she is dropping her protective order against Anderson because she is enrolling into the military.
