Of course, this is better than merely letting the predator go free, but the charge implies a lack of intent, that the killing did not take place during the commission of a felony, and that it was not a crime of a sexual nature.
Cry of Rape Lands Cheating Wife in Jail – AOL News
FORT WORTH, Texas (May 3) – A Texas woman who caused her lover’s shooting death by falsely crying rape was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter.
Tracy Denise Roberson, 37, cried a bit when the verdict was announced. The punishment phase was set for Monday, and she faces two to 20 years in prison.

Until sexual predators face long prison sentences and are placed on a list so that locals can avoid contact with them once they are released, the justice system is mutely encouraging their behavior. Too bad.
