1990-April 1992: This is a case that although bad enough could have been tragic. Nicole Lynn Althaus was born April 10, 1975. In 1990, she made a single allegation against her father Richard, that he had touched her inappropriately. From there, her allegations mushroomed, resulting in the arrest of her father for rape and other crimes, and for her mother for sexual assault. Fortunately, the courts soon realised that whatever had been happening here, it was not sexual abuse. In April 1992, Nicole herself recognised her delusions, and withdrew her allegations. She said she realised she couldnít have walked on hot coals because she didnít have scars on her feet. She and her parents went on to sue those they held responsible for implanting her with FALSE MEMORIES. Here is the full judgment of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
