BBC Looking for Wrongly Accused

BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat is preparing a news story relating to young women being prosecuted for making false rape allegations. At this point, that is all I can share in a public forum like this, but I am happy to speak directly to anyone who would like to know more. We are looking to speak to a young man (16-26yrs) who has first-hand experience of being involved in this distressing and difficult situation. 

We fully understand some men may be hesitant in offering to take part. To those we would say, firstly, this is an important issue for our 12 million young listeners and a topic which deserves to be covered in a sensitive and factual way. Secondly, we can, as we often do, guarantee a contributors complete anonymity. 

Take for example a recent story we did on a similarly difficult and sensitive topic: www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/19229419 

It is always difficult to have these conversations online, and so I would encourage anyone who would like to learn more to contact me directly and we can speak. There will be no obligation to take part after that. My email is declan.harvey@bbc.co.uk Kindest thanks, Declan.
