Ex Footballer, Andy Woodard was ‘sacked‘ on 4th November 2016 from Lancashire Police for a rape allegation, (now further assault allegations and text messages suggesting inappropriate comments to a 14 year old girl) yet, only one week later, the shamed Lancashire cop, Andy Woodward ran to the press (note: not the Police), to report that he himself was allegedly raped years ago. Does the timing of this seem a little strange to you?
Rape Definition by the CPS.
Allegations of Rape against Andy Woodward the ex professional footballer (and now ex Police Officer) has recently hit the UK headline news for of sexual abuse against him in the 70’s & 80’s days after he himself was sacked for a rape accusation. There is no allegation what he says is untrue, but his timing for reporting this after he was sacked for the same allegation, should be questioned.
What seems to have been omitted from his ‘suspiciously timed‘ recent mainstream news interviews, is that he had, only one week before , been dismissed with immediate affect from Lancashire Police for an allegation of Rape! (read here)
Further information has come to light about Andy Woodward assaulting at least 4 other women. (read here)
Not one main steam media outlet has mentioned that Andy Woodward was himself a reported rapist.
It is disgusting how a dismissed & disgraced Lancashire Police Officer can get so much airtime, simply because he is an ex Professional Footballer with a rape allegation against him… what about his poor alleged rape victim who seems to be brushed aside and has to watch with distress seeing his face on every news report and TV show! BBC have visited our website and viewed the text messages, yet they have not reported on this.
While no criminal charges were brought against the shamed Lancashire Police Officer, a criminal investigation did ‘allegedly’ take place by Lancashire Police but apparently CPS did not charge. It appears the investigation was thwarted by the lack of understanding how the victim was emotionally manipulated by Woodward.
I have spoken with the victim who is devastated that CPS did not charge Woodward for her alleged rape, but she did get some comfort that her attacker was punished by dismissal, albeit it not a criminal charge. Only days later, Woodward’s victim was again mortified to see Andy Woodward appear on all media outlets including TV, Radio, Twitter, Facebook, all broadcasting how he [Woodward] was himself a victim of sexual abuse, yet he was apparently and intentionally hiding his own dismissal from the Police and the reasons from the media. The timing of him contacting the media seems to be suspiciously timed, right after his dismissal for a similar crime!
The following is a statement from Andy Woodward’s victim, who at this time has chosen to remain anonymous.
“I met Andy Woodward in 2014 when he was allocated to my family by the police as a family liaison officer.
Between January and June of 2015, Andy told me about his abuse at the hands of Bennell and used this to emotionally manipulate me. His sexual touching whilst on duty escalated to him raping me at his home address.
When I said I was going to speak to someone, he threatened to kill himself. I was left feeling completely responsible for his welfare and was terrified he would end his life. This man destroyed my life. I had to close my business as I was unable to function on a day to day basis. I was left having panic attacks and nightmares.
While I still empathise with what he has been through, he was dismissed from the police force for gross misconduct. What he did to me should not be overlooked and as he acted in a practised manner, I’m absolutely certain there are other victims out there.
He’s never once acknowledged he has done wrong or shown any remorse. The Police misconduct panel acknowledged that he showed no remorse for his actions”
Numerous press outlets are too scared to publish this story, why? Simply because they jump on the bandwagon and not really interested in the victim. If they were, they would report this victims statement against Woodward.
I encourage you to share this article far and wide.
There are other victims of alleged rape here and due to press control, not all victims are getting a fair hearing, ask yourself this, if this victim was you sister, your daughter or your mother, would think differently?
