Nurse jailed for falsely accusing taxi driver of trying to rape her loses bid for freedom

Fiona Scanlan was sent down for 13 months in December but asked to be released pending a potential appeal against her sentence.

A nurse jailed for falsely accusing a taxi driver of trying to rape her lost her bid for freedom yesterday.

Fiona Scanlan was sent down for 13 months in December but asked to be released pending a potential appeal against her sentence.

But Lord Turnbull rejected the move at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Scanlan, 40, of Rutherglen, near Glasgow, was jailed after lying that she was attacked after leaving a wedding drunk in East Kilbride in March 2014.

Her lie led to innocent driver William Millar being held for 18 hours and having a medical examination.

She claimed William pulled into a secluded area and tried to rape her as he drove her home from a wedding at East Kilbride’s Crutherland House Hotel in March 2014.

But a GPS tracking device fixed to his taxi showed police that the vehicle did not take the route she described and proved his innocence.

William had been called to Crutherland House at midnight and watched as a drunken Scanlan was carried out.

He later asked her to leave his taxi after she launched a drunken tirade against him as he drove her home.

Scanlan then went to a police station claiming William had attacked her in the car.

While he was held in custody and questioned over the accusation, his trousers and jacket were taken for forensic tests. His taxi was impounded to check for any possible DNA evidence.

Scanlan, from Rutherglen, near Glasgow, admitted fabricating the claim when she appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

William said the prison sentence was not long enough and described what happened to him as one of the most embarrassing things in his life.
