A 21-year-old woman drove a man to suicide by crying rape and forced a second innocent man to consider taking his own life after falsely accusing him of a similar sex attack.
Despite being exposed in court as a serial liar, the law means the woman cannot be identified and can hide behind the cloak of anonymity.
A jury took just 45 minutes to clear medical student Olumide Fadayomi, 27, of rape and several jurors at Sheffield Crown Court broke down in tears when the judge then revealed the 'victim's' history of crying rape.
Judge Patrick Robertshaw launched an astonishing attack on Crown Prosecution Service lawyers for making Fadayomi stand trial, simply to abide by the woman's wishes.
He said:'The evidence did not, and was never going to, prove rape. The prime overriding consideration in the CPS's decision had been merely that the complainant wished the case to go ahead.
'It was little short of a craven abdication of responsibility for making an independent and fair minded assessment of the case.
'It is quite astonishing these decisions are made by those who simply do not have experience of what happens in Crown Court because they never come into Crown Court. They sit behind desks and make decisions that result in this sort of trial taking place.'
The judge revealed how 18 months earlier the same woman had made an allegation of rape against a young man who ended up committing suicide. He said the case never reached court because it was 'lacking in credibility', but the man killed himself 'when facing that allegation.'
After failing to have this first 'rapist' brought to court, the woman set about framing Fadayomi, a stranger she met and seduced in a nightclub.
The woman claimed Fadayomi attacked her in a house he shared with other students in Walkley, Sheffield, after she met him while 'tipsy' in a city centre nightspot last October.
But one of her friends, who was also with her that evening, told the court the woman danced and kissed Fadayomi boasting:'I'm going to have his body tonight.'
