Women Jailed For Accusing Man Of Sexual Assault For Consensual Threesome

Colin Palin, 56, was arrested after his girlfriend and a friend initiated a threesome and then accused him of sexual assault. He got out, but in Monopoly vernacular, it was a case of “go to jail” for Emma Riche-Webber and her friend Zinzile Ademuni-Odeke for lying to the police.

The British man was arrested back in March 2014 after the two women made the claims of sexual assault. He was held in a jail cell for five hours and not cleared for a total of four days.

Palin, a former decorator, has been suffering from stress ever since.

Speaking of the accusation of sexual assault, Palin told the Sunday People newspaper, “They ­destroyed my life. I was terrified. How can I trust anyone again?”

Riche-Webber, 30, was Palin’s girlfriend at the time, and she had been hosting a birthday party for her daughter that day. Ademuni-Odeke, 29, was at the party and both had been drinking.

“She’d been hosting a birthday party for her daughter. She and Zinzi had been drinking since early afternoon. Emma persuaded me to go over. I walked with my dog.”

Palin explained that both women had initiated a threesome on several occasions.

He said, “I was completely in love with Emma and had gone along with it to make her happy. It was just a bit of fun.”

As reported in the Mirror, that day the children were in bed when he arrived at the house and the threesome had a glass of wine and chatted, but then things got “touchy-feely.”

“Before I knew it we were in bed, taking our clothes off. The girls were really giggly.”

When Palin left, he suddenly realized he had left his dog in the house and he phoned Riche-Webber from outside. Apparently the two women refused to return the dog and they then phoned the police, saying Palin wouldn’t leave and was harassing them.

Ademuni-Odeke also told the police that Palin had exposed himself to them and told them, “This is what you want.”

“Two ­officers turned up and I got my dog back. But next day five officers came to arrest me on suspicion of sexual assault. I broke down in tears as I realized I could go to jail. It was my word against theirs.”

Eventually Riche-Webber admitted that they had been lying about the sexual assault, and CCTV footage showed that Palin did not re-enter the building.

Riche-Webber was then jailed for eight months after confessing to perverting the course of justice. While Ademuni-Odeke initially denied the offence in court, she was also convicted and got 18 months in jail.

Palin eventually moved to Wales, where he has started a new life. He told the media he wished the judge “had thrown away the key.”

In a similar vein, a female marine officer was recently fired after implying that members of her all-female recruit battalion were to blame for incidents of sexual assault.
