Prison worker and Next Top Model contestant arrested for false rape accusation

A British prison worker who just so happened to be an aspiring model accused a taxi driver of raping her, and now she’s headed off to the slammer.

Victoria Hoynes, who worked with offenders at HMP Frankland, County Durham, accused Rajiv Asghar and Abdul Rahim of severe sexual misconduct- so severe, that it may have permanently hurt their reputations.

According to the Daily Mail, Hoynes initially told her mother about the alleged rape shortly after the “attack” last spring.

Notifying the police, Hoynes told authorities that she was roughed up, raped and dumped on the side of the A691 highway near Durham’s local hospital.

However, the tabloid reported that police became suspicious when certain details of the story began to change, DNA evidence collected did not line up, and Hoynes began talking about how she was unwilling to compromise her “lifestyle” over the incident.

Hoynes competed in Durham’s Next Top Model competition in 2013 and the Miss Newcastle beauty pageant in 2014.

Later, the false allegations were attributed to mental illness surrounding a breakup.

“She accepted full responsibility for the false allegations and wishes to make it clear through me that the two drivers are totally innocent and apologises to them and their families,” her attorney wrote. “She offers a sincere public apology and she is extremely remorseful.”

Hoynes was sentenced to 20 months behind bars.
