    Making false accusations of sexual assault into a crime would further stigmatize reporting an already highly underreported crime. With the low rate of conviction in rape cases, the victims of sexual assault would be assumed to be the true criminals under such a statute. This legislation makes it seem like false claims of sexual assault are a common problem, and they're not.
