Damaged reputation

Our family was appalled after reading about how a young man’s life had been changed because of a false claim of rape. Is there any way that the school can put the report on its Web site and send it to all the grads? We only hope that this will let people know how easy a lie can change a life. I hope the young woman has learned a lesson and will tell others not to do what she had done. We do not know this young man or the girl involved. Why do people think they have to lie about such a terrible act? Is it to get attention?
