Kanin reported that in 41% of the cases the complainants eventually admitted that no rape had occurred. Three different universities replicated the Kanin study.Names of the accused should be protected as much as the names of the accusers.Pictures of false accusers should be posted like pictures of other types of criminals to warn others of potential harm.Almost every month we read of another man freed from prison because the false accusations that caused their incarceration were later proven false or a woman recanted.Even if there is no conviction, a false allegation of rape emotionally, socially, and economically destroys a person and their immediate and often extended families.
