Raped woman is jailed!

Seriously WTF?!

This is just unbelievably insane. I hope something can be done to appeal the decision to imprison this woman.

She is raped by her husband numerous times, lays a charge, retracts the charge and when the police say they won’t drop it she then is forced to say she lied. Eventually she comes forward and says she made a false retraction and again admits she was raped…. so they jail her for perverting the course of justice?!
