Conor Oberst Accepts Accuser's Apology

Posted by - 10:53 AM on 07/16/14
Below is a statement from Conor Oberst accepting the apology recently offered by the woman who falsely accused him of raping her.
I have accepted Joanie Faircloth’s apology and retraction to clear my name. This has been extremely difficult and stressful for me personally and for those I love. I’m appreciative of the family, friends, fans, and business partners who supported me throughout this and look forward to happier times as we all move forward with our lives.

Always thought false rape accusations should lead to jail time.

Not that every case that doesn't convict a rapist is false, but if somewhere along the lines, it's proven that he or she wasn't / couldn't have been there, or she or he made it up, you should do some jail time.

Can't we just amend the post with some links to rape culture instead of arguing back and forth with a bunch of imbeciles? Thanks

You're comment is all sorts of off base.

I wonder if she really made it up or just strong armed into recanting the allegations, even though her statement sounds like she really made it up.

I was wondering the same thing. I guess that's the downside of these allegations, even though his name was cleared there will always be a shade of doubt for some people and also people who only heard the accusations and not the part where he was cleared.

The moral of this whole ordeal is that crying wolf can potentially ruin lives. So don't be a self-entitled cunt and accuse someone of something terrible that never happened.

A girl did this at my college a couple years ago. She wasn't prepared for her finals, so she said she got assaulted in the main atrium in the afternoon. She couldn't back anything up though, her story was all over the place so she finally told the truth and campus security didn't charge her with anything.
