Jonathan Sandiford KC leading Barbara Webster for the Crown on the trial and sentence of Eleanor Williams.
Williams has been sentenced to eight and a half years following a two day hearing at Preston Crown Court. She fabricated evidence to make it look like she was a victim of multiple men – including using a hammer to inflict injuries on herself.
Over a two-day sentencing hearing the Court heard how Williams falsely accused the men over a three-year period tried to take their own lives after being targeted and suffering “hell on earth”.
One of them – Jordan Trengove – spent 73 days in prison, sharing a cell with a convicted sex offender after he was charged as a result of Williams’ claims.
They had been on a night out in March 2019 when she was taken home after becoming intoxicated.
Williams later alleged Mr Trengove had raped her that night, and then on two more occasions, claiming he attacked her and threatened her with a knife. The court heard he had the word “rapist” spray painted across his house.
