Sexual assault is one of the worst crimes that can be committed. It's a violation of one of the most intimate acts in human nature, and it not only causes a lot of physical pain and suffering, but lasting psychological damage that can't ever be completely gotten over. So when someone accuses a person of committing such a heinous act, they better be serious.
Last February, a fan accused Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst of rape, an allegation he flat-out denied. He fired back with a libel lawsuit, and now his accuser, a woman named Joanie Faircloth, has admitted that she made the whole thing up, and her reason is shocking.
