Some of the most shocking and memorable court cases of the year have involved revenge-seeking women who have brazenly persisted in telling the most horrendous lies just to get the men that they have fallen out with into serious trouble with the police.
Their evil lies and the sheer persistence of their fabricated campaigns were aimed at destroying the lives of their despairing victims and they came very near to doing just that. In another notorious case, a female sex offender’s obsession with the private parts of young boys led to one of the most bizarre cases of the year.
Then there was a knife-wielding prostitute who menacingly threatened a 74-year-old man because she thought that he was a soft target. Other memorable cases of 2022 included a well-known historian and author who turned into a depraved sex offender.
