TOPIC: Harvey Weinstein.
Harvey Weinstein. 7 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Buried away in the news (not a good story) are some of the defence; Lauren Marie Young (a false accuser) who had said the rape happened in front of her friend Claudia Salinas... "Never happened" said Salinas, in court, under oath. Talita Maia, who was with Jessica Mann when she was "raped", says her friend was not distressed but indeed "spoke highly of Mr Weinstein" after the "rape".

False accusers go into a bizarre fantasy land, not imagining their lies can be disproved, often even believing their own lies. One of mine claimed he lost his virginity on his 14th birthday (we tracked down the girl; they were both, in fact, almost 16 and she totally refuted dozens of his other claims). Another - the one who raped his 10 year old sister "numerous times" when he was 20 - said he met me when he was a waiter at Claridges making "£500 a week" - £2000 a week in today's money - after watching two movies with friends in a cinema (but we proved the films were made two years later). Another boasted in a 1991 interview he had been on Top of the Pops as lead singer of "my friend Jonathan King's group The Weathermen" and 30 years later changed his story to a fake rape in 1970 after which "I never saw or spoke to him again".

Mind you media (and sometimes, sadly, jurors) aren't interested in these facts. They ruin a "great story".

Amazing. Perhaps these women were counting on the witnesses "misremembering" things too. Wonder what makes false accusers enter fantasy world. I suppose the prospect of bucket-loads of cash will help.

Noticed this rather whiny article from The Guardian earlier today, which nevertheless contains an interesting nugget.

Donna Rotunno: the legal Rottweiler leading Harvey Weinstein’s defense

"Rotunno, who began as a prosecutor but then switched to defending men accused of sex crimes, has a formidable record. She has represented 40 male defendants in sex crimes trials, and lost only once."

I am baffled by the accusers who said that Weinstein had a tiny penis and no testicles, while others didn't notice anything wrong, as if he has got a retractable set.

I mean, instead of the court palaver, wouldn't you just have a look?

Seeing as you were likely locked up by your own industry, can't you use any k pledge accrued whilst working with them to do the same to them?

Go on.

No Jo; no misremembering; they convince themselves they are speaking the truth; even when confronted by incontrovertible evidence to the contrary. Then they reach out for others who will confirm their memories but often (as in Weinstein above) the witnesses simply reveal the truth. Sometimes unintentionally; in one of my cases the mother of a friend confirmed the original meeting as the false accuser's mother "had just been widowed 4 or 5 weeks before". But the husband had died almost three years later - we found the death certificate. So the woman contradicted her own (helpful, she thought) evidence. Making the date three years later; by her own detailed statement.
