A mother was jailed for two years yesterday for crying rape against a man she met on a dating website.


‘You have undermined and jeopardised the efforts that are being made about the need to treat genuine victims of rape properly, fairly and sympathetically.

‘The offence is in itself a serious one, it has terrible consequences potentially and actually for the victim and wider implications for those women who have genuinely been raped.’ – The Judge


Day, a former nurse, from Corringham, Essex, split up with the father of her four-year-old daughter in 2007 after he had an affair with their lodger, Basildon Crown Court heard.

She began drinking heavily to cope with the rejection and using dating websites. In September 2007 she met Mr Saxby, who worked for the Ford car company, through the Dating Direct website.

They began a relationship, but the court heard that she was also seeing another man.

In January last year, the couple rowed after Mr Saxby accused her of having another man at her home. Afterwards, Day dialled 999 and accused Mr Saxby of rape.

He was arrested in front of his colleagues and taken to the police station.


Rebecca Lee, mitigating, said Day had been under a lot of strain following the break-up of her relationship with the father of her daughter.

She said: ‘She got involved with dating websites and going out when her daughter was staying with her former partner, going out to pubs and engaging in what she would call risky behaviour and behaving totally out of character.’


But the judge rejected calls to suspend the sentence.

‘Mr Saxby is a completely respectable man who had formed a relationship with you and had shown considerable affection and kindness of the kind you said you craved,’ he said.

Yeah, she has some baggage, but she seems kinda cute, eh Boozers?
