Lesbian Fantasist Invented 15 Rapes and Sexual Assaults Which Saw Man Jailed to Get Sympathy From Girlfriends

A fantasist who invented rape and sexual assault allegations against 15 men to get attention from her girlfriend has been jailed for ten years.

Jemma Beale, 25, claimed she had been raped by nine men and seriously sexually by six in four different encounters over the space of three years, causing one man to be wrongly jailed.

A judge warned that her “grotesque” string of lies would increase the likelihood of guilty men going free and prevent real victims from reporting such crimes.

Beale’s first victim, Mahad Cassim, served two years and nine months in jail, while she received £11,000 in criminal injuries compensation following the alleged rape.

The court heard that she went on to make a string of false allegations that took up 6,400 hours of police time and cost at least £250,000.

Most lies began “impulsively” following drunken rows with girlfriends as she sought attention and to arouse jealousy.

Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith, sitting at London’s Southwark Crown Court, told Beale she was a “very, very convincing liar” and “enjoyed being seen as a victim.”

He added: “What is particularly chilling is the manner in which you persisted in making allegations which you knew were untrue even to the extent of committing and repeating perjury.

“These false allegations of rape, false allegations which will inevitably be widely publicised, are likely to have the perverse impact of increasing the likelihood of guilty men going free.

“Cases such as this bring a real risk that a woman who has been raped or sexually assaulted may not complain to the police for fear of not being believed.”

Beale, from Bedfont, south west London, was found guilty last month of four counts of perjury and four counts of perverting the course of justice after a five-week trial at Southwark Crown Court.
