Woman Jailed For False Rape Claim After Having Drunken, Cocaine-Filled Threesome With Army Soldiers

Nicole Richess is now facing jail time after she reportedly lied about her sexual encounter with two army soldiers.

According to the Daily Mail, the 20-year-old woman initially claimed the two soldiers — ages 23 and 24 — walked in on her while she was changing clothes and raped her. But, it was later discovered that she’d actually consented to having a threesome with them. However, that’s not all. Apparently, they had quite an eventful night.

It has also been reported that the sexual encounter also included the consumption of alcohol and cocaine. Richess and her friend Laura Hillwood met the soldiers at a nightclub. They all left the club and went back to Hillwood’s home where Richess willingly had sex with the two soldiers.

Hillwood admitted that she’d walked in on the three having sex and asked them to leave her home. After leaving, they reportedly drove to Richess home where they continued to have sex. Richess reportedly came up with the false claim so she wouldn’t have to tell her boyfriend, Alex Ganter, the truth about her deceit. So, instead of admitting that she’d cheated on her boyfriend, she insisted that the two soldiers “forced themselves on her.”

Local authorities reportedly wasted approximately 296 hours of investigative time on Richess’ false claim. Now, she’s paying the consequences for her fabricated story.

Metro UK reports that Richess was sentenced by Judge Jonathan Fuller QC, who definitely had no reservations about making Richess aware of the severity of her claims. Judge Fuller, who referred to Richess’ actions as “insidious and corrosive,” explained just how her defaming claims could have damaged the reputation of two men she was knowingly involved with.

He also cited how she was wiling to allow the two army soldiers to be jailed simply because she was ashamed of her own actions. Judge Fuller sentenced Richess to two-and-a-half-years behind bars. His lengthy statement has been reported on several news sites.

“You made a determined and prolonged attempt to weave a picture of deceit to further your ends and you were prepared to make wholly false allegations of attempted rape against these innocent young men. The impact on these victims cannot be understated and false allegations of rape and attempted rape can have dreadful consequences. Every occasion of a proved false allegation has an insidious effect on public confidence, sometimes allowing doubts to creep into when one shouldn’t exist. Your offence has a corrosive effect on criminal justice.”

The two soldiers have also voiced their frustrations, explaining how the daunting experience has impacted their lives, reports Mirror Online. Needless to say, they were plagued with worry over the possibility of facing jail time for a crime they obviously did not commit.

“The lasting effect of this case will follow me for many years and perhaps the rest of my life,” the 23-year-old soldier said. “I was petrified and couldn’t believe this was happening to me,” he said. “It changed me as a person and I have become a lot quieter and less confident. My family were distraught about the allegations and the worry has been the biggest thing for me,” the 24-year-old said.

Nicole Richess, who is now seven months pregnant, is reportedly depressed and suicidal as a result of the entire debacle.
