FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Police found inconsistencies in the story of a Fort Collins woman who claimed she was raped soon after she reported the crime, according to a police interview obtained by 7NEWS.

Katherine Bennett, 21, was eventually convicted for lying to Windsor Police when she claimed Dustin Toth kidnapped and raped her. Last year, Toth, now 26, spent the day before Thanksgiving in jail.

That same day, Bennett was called in for questioning.

“Right now the statements I’ve been given don’t match evidence,” the investigator told Bennett, adding that Toth could spend 30 years to life in prison for the crimes she accused him of.

“There are some things that aren’t exactly clear to me and might not be exactly true,” Bennett told the investigator. “But did he violently rape me, yes.”

When the investigator continued to bring up problems with Bennett’s story she said, “It’s fine, I’ll drop all charges.”

Toth’s police interview from that same day shows him breaking down and crying. He explained to police he was friends with Bennett from work and they had consensual sex.

Bennett, engaged at the time, went to the hospital and claimed she was assaulted. Her fiancé was also interviewed by police.

Toth said Wednesday that, one year later, his life still feels out of his control.

“Bennett changed her story more than once, and that’s the only thing that saved my life,” Toth said.

The Army National Guardsman was fired from his civilian job and couldn’t find another for nearly six months. He said he’s been behind on his car payment ever since, and is fighting to keep the car from being re-possessed.

He said emotional pain rivals those financial problems.

“I feel like I’m incapable to actually trust a woman again,” Toth said. “I try to every day; I want to.”

He said he finds healing in sharing his story.

“The more I put myself out there, the more I feel a little bit better that the truth is being put in perspective,” Toth said. “Giving me the opportunity to share — it gives me an opportunity to clear my name because I still don’t think it’s clear.”

7NEWS was unable to reach Bennett for comment. She was sentenced to 35 days in jail, then electronic monitoring and probation. This week, a judge granted her request to serve her probation in Illinois with her family.

16 NEW DETAILS Attorney of John Doe Expelled for Alleged Amherst College Rape

Back to menu

Gepubliceerd op 18 jun. 2015
The lawyer for a former Amherst College student who claims he was expelled after being falsely accused of rape in 2012 weighed in on “The Kelly File” tonight.
The plaintiff, listed in court filings as John Doe, says he was expelled because administrators wanted to show they were tough on sex offenders.
Trace Gallagher reported yesterday in a “Kelly File” investigation that Doe’s attorney, Max Stern, discovered text messages from the accuser which suggest not only did he not attack her, but it appears she may have sexually assaulted him.
Stern said his client is not interested in “prosecuting” the accuser.
“We are simply interested in getting relief for this man who was a wonderful student,” Stern shared. “He was a first generation citizen of the United States, he was doing so well at Amherst, the world was his oyster.”
Stern said in a six week period of time his client’s future was in “complete ruins.”
“He suffers from shame and embarrassment, he’s depressed, he doesn’t sleep at night,” Stern added.

Interview with Mark Pearson at ICMI 2016 in London UK. Mark was falsely accused of sexual assault in London UK after brushing past a famous London actress. Mark was forced to endure a full trial despite proof of his innocence, which should resulted in the charges being dismissed or even prevented charges from being laid in the first place.

Mark spoke about his ordeal at the International Conference on Men’s Issues in London, UK, in July 2016.

The accusation game used to go on in London in the 1700s, in public parks. A woman would engage a man in conversation, on some pretext, and then suddenly accuse him of sexual assault – and demand money to secure silence. These female criminals used to target middle-class men in the their late twenties and above. They targeted guys not too young, because a young guy might act rashly and would anyway be more likely to be defiant, as young guys think they will always win. They chose middle-class because the poorer class guy would not have any meaningful money, and a rich guy, especially an aristocrat, would have the power to get her beaten up, or killed. My personal theory is that this crime, which became widely known, as more and more women cashed in on it, gave rise to a cynical attitude towards rape accusations, which took root by the mid 1800s
This enrages me. A fucking mad world.

Why does he allow the false statement that Rolf Harris was imprisoned “when there was no evidence” to go unchallenged? This troubles me.

The last domino to fall will be to deny the accused the right to a fair trial by jury. I firmly believe this day is coming.

24 The First Rule of Surviving False Accusations

Back to menu

Gepubliceerd op 11 mrt. 2018


Rule 1: cut off contact with your false accuser.
Rule 2 : cut off contact with your false accuser
Rule 3 : Don’t apologise
Rule 4: Cut off contact with your accuser’s collaborators
Rule 5: Measure your friends, and relatives (those who don’t have your back have got to go)
Rule 6: f the accusation was precipitated by a known event – such as a fight, or a break up. Get a written statement from every person who was witness to that event
Rule 7: Write your own factual accounting of that event as well – and keep your opinions out of it.
Rule 8: write a complete and linear accounting of your accuser’s story. (this is the hardest and most painful step)
Rule 9: Buy a new phone (with a new number and sim card)
Rule 10: keep your sleep, eating and activities as close to your existing routine as you can – so you don’t fall off the grid of your life, and slip into suicidal impulses.

Indonesia prides itself on being a democratic nation, but critics say that its justice system does not reflect the country’s progress.

Riddled with corruption and incompetent investigative procedures, trials and sentences are often deemed unfair.

Wealthy or politically influential suspects are often able to buy themselves out of a trial, while poorer suspects face abuse in prison.

This week on 101 East we look at Indonesia’s justice system, and ask if the punishment fits the crime.
