Jemma Beale. Conviction: 4 counts of perjury, 4 counts of perverting the course of justice. Victims: Male, ages vary. Sentence: 10 years.
In November of 2010, Beale began a 3-year string of false rape and sexual assault claims – 15 in total, against 15 men. It was later revealed that the accusations were made for no other reason than to garner attention. In an effort to substantiate her claims, Beale frequently injured herself with cuts and bruises before making reports to police. As the result of her false testimony, one man fled the country with his life in tatters, while another, Mahad Cassim, spent 7 years in jail.
