Clemson student arrested on false rape complaint

Clemson University student, Krutika Mediwala, was arrested on February 28 for filing a false sexual assault complaint. The sexual assault charge was made in January and Clemson students were alerted that a rape had occurred on campus.  In January “she told police two guys knocked her down and assaulted her from behind in a dark parking lot on campus. But according to the police, her story did not add up and she was arrested for the lie”.  As a result of her complaint, extra police patrols were put on campus.  Mediwala was released from jail on $5,000 bond.

  1. Honestly this was juts clemson’s way of trying to protect their image. it is shameful. the clemson pd is laughable. but when something like this happens it’s not a laughing matter. there need to be changes at this school.

  2. I agree completely… A small percentage of rape victims come forward and this is only going to make it harder for them to come forward. On the upside of things at least Clemson University will look safer (sarcasm)…

  3. Hello
    I am and Australian who was wrongly accused of Rape and another 9 Felony Charges in USA in 2008… I spent 115 days in a County Prison while the female [minor who advertised herself as 19] on a Adult Dating website was getting all the sympathy from a whole County…
    Now I morally was guilty but certainly not legally… For the majority of people who have not been through this degrading experience, I say, ‘ask those who really know what it is like to spend time in Prison for something you did not do’, Yes there are some really nasty peices of crap in society and they deserve to be punished, however when a female or male has wrongly accused someone of rape and it is proven or in my case the female ‘recanted’ her story, well she had to as the Text messages and pc records show she was lying, these people should be charged or given treatment to ensure that there is a deterent to others. I did not get as much as an apology from anybody, and some people say to me ‘take civil action’, sure take civil action so that you go endure all the past again, no thank you! My life was ruined, I say ‘was’ ruined, but I have been lucky to have the best family and friends to lift me up and fowards…
    So to all the rule makers and decision makers ‘THINK’ very hard when you make your decisions from your Office, and imagine it is your son,father or husband that has been ‘falsely accused’.

    I am writing a Ebook about my experience and it will be out in Sept 09 its called “This, Too, Will Pass”, might just be worth a read people!!! email me on this_too_willpass@hotmail.com if you would like to be included on the list to ensure you know when the Ebook is available
