A woman who cried rape was jailed yesterday after a court heard it was her eleventh false claim.
Compulsive liar Elizabeth Jones, 22, was exposed when CCTV footage disproved her allegation against a man she ‘did not like any more’.
She had made her first false rape claim in 2004 when she was just 13, Southampton Crown Court heard.
Between 2005 and 2007 she made another eight allegations which police investigated and dismissed, although she was not prosecuted.
In 2009 she was sentenced to a ten-month detention and training order for a similar offence.
Jones’s latest victim was a boyfriend against whom she made the allegation after the pair had an argument.
Police began an investigation after Jones, from Southampton, persuaded a friend to report she had been assaulted.
She later went to the police station for a medical examination and repeated her allegation. The man was arrested and questioned for nine hours before being released without charge.
Prosecutor Jennie Rickman said he denied rape and detectives later viewed CCTV covering part of the house in which Jones claimed to have been attacked.
The video did not support her story that the man forced himself on her.
Miss Rickman said: ‘There is a history of her making false allegations of this nature and this is the 11th incident.
‘Police had to take her allegation seriously and carried out an appropriate investigation.
‘She was later arrested and accepted she had lied about being raped. She said she did it because she did not like him.’
