What percentage of rape accusations are false? That’s a nearly impossible discussion to have, as the definition of false varies. If a case is unfounded, is it false? If a case is he-said-she-said, is that case false?
Yet most criminal defense lawyers will tell you that around 50% of date rape cases are either false or that the evidence is so weak that no one can know what happens. Data from Yale supports this.
Yale is social justice central. It’s ruled by feminists and radical leftists. When a woman accuses a fellow college student at Yale of rape, she has a favorable system.
- Lower standards of proof,
- Limited due process for the accused man,
- A panel of “judges” made up of feminists.
Given the lack of due process and anti-male bias at Yale, what percentage of cases are false?
Jack Montague, the captain of Yale’s basketball team, who was expelled last month in connection with a sexual misconduct case, said in a statement through his lawyer on Monday that the university’s ruling was “wrong, unfairly determined, arbitrary and excessive by any rational measure.”
A Yale spokesman continued to decline to comment on this specific case, citing the federal confidentiality laws. In a statement Monday morning, the spokesman, Tom Conroy, did say that “where cases involve judgments about the witnesses’ credibility, all of the available corroborating or contradictory information is carefully weighed to determine who is telling the truth.”
He also said that the accused is permitted legal representation throughout the process, and that just one in 10 cases culminates in expulsion, while one in five results in no adverse finding and two of five result in a reprimand or probation.
A full 20% of date rape cases are outright false. Another 40% of date rape accusations only lead to a reprimand. In those cases, the girl not actually raped but instead felt misled.
A man who tells a woman he will break up with her because they don’t have sex often enough, according to campus rape hearings, is not expressing his right to negotiate a relationship. Instead he’s committed sexual assault.
I have even been called a rape apologist because, “You give advice to men on how to avoid charges of date rape if the woman has second thoughts the day after.” Regret is being reframed as rape, because if a woman had second thoughts, she must not have been certain about the encounter.
Even under Yale’s system of justice, somewhere between 20 and 60% of rape accusations are false.
Yale’s findings are consistent with what every lawyer will tell you.
About half of date rape cases are either outright fabrications or are the sort of shady-by-not-illegal conduct sexually active people engage in.
