Woman jailed for making false allegation of rape

August 15, 2003

A woman was jailed for 12 months yesterday for faking a rape, which led to the imprisonment of her wholly innocent former boyfriend. Alison Welfare, 26, was found by a cleaner in a lavatory, bound and gagged with her clothes torn and smeared with white paint. Apparently the victim of a horrifying assault, the deaf mother of four from Orpington in Kent, falsely accused her former boyfriend, Christopher Wheeler, 38, of kidnapping and raping her.
