FALSE BUT SINCERE ACCUSATIONS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT MADE BY NARCOTIC PATIENTS

1992: The above article by P. Hays is published in the MEDICO-LEGAL JOURNAL, Vol 60 Part 4 1992, pages 265-71.

Although it is undated, it was probably published in the fourth quarter of the year, but I have decided in my infinite wisdom to put it at the beginning.

He reports four anonymised but interesting cases: two 42 year old women; a 39 year old man; and a 31 year old woman. The second patient - a single mother - described being raped by a police officer and later by her boss. She wondered how they could have done this then carried on their regular (non-intimate) relationships without batting an eyelid. Now you know.
