According to clinical psychologist Dr. Gregory Hamovitch, incidents like this are unusual.

“It’s quite rare. If anything, under-reporting of these kind of events is more likely than overreporting,” he said.

The angle could have easily gone the other way. It’s a relief to read this odd twist in the case and not have get my back up in defense of all of the women who do tell the truth and aren’t believed. We’ll see how the rest of the story pans out as the details unfold, but for now, I’m just glad to have women’s stories affirmed, even if this one turns out not to be true.
