A man lost his wife and job and spent two weeks in a maximum security prison after a woman falsely accused him of indecent assault in Sydney.
Kenan Basic stopped to help a 19-year-old woman who had a broken-down car at a service station in November last year. He spent two hours helping her fix it.
He then followed the woman a short distance with his car just to make sure it was working properly.
However, the woman later told police Mr. Basic indecently assaulted and stalked her and asked her to make out in return for his help.
Mr. Basic faced serious sexual charges and spent two weeks in Silverwater Prison.
He lost his job and is now going through a divorce.
‘I always help people you know, all my life, and this is the first time the snake bite me,’ Mr. Basic said.
On Monday, the woman admitted that she’d been lying. Now, she is facing a charge of knowingly making a false or misleading statement. She will appear in court next week.
Mr. Basic’s lawyer Mona El Baba told Seven News:
‘No-one would ever expect that as a Good Samaritan you stop to assist a broken down motorist that then you would subsequently be charged with these serious offenses.’
Mr. Basic, who lost his job and is now going through a divorce due to the false allegations, said: ‘I feel happy because I got my freedom you know.’
