Ohio University student in hiding after website identifies her as ‘false rape accuser’: school

An Ohio University student has gone into hiding after being falsely identified as the woman who cried rape after being filmed in a public sex act with a man near the university’s campus, police and school officials say.

Sophomore Rachel Cassidy is seeking help from Athens police after her photos, home address, phone number and links to her social media accounts were flaunted on a website calling her a “liar” and “false rape accuser.”

That website, Crimes Against Fathers, which since the Oct. 12 act’s filming has spearheaded a witch hunt for “the evil woman” behind the rape report, claims it is Cassidy and wants the public to know exactly how to contact her.

“I believe that it is VERY likely Rachel Cassidy is the woman in the now viral video,” Peter Nolan, the controversial website’s “name and shame” henchman told the Daily News in an email from Germany Thursday.

“There are a great deal of similarity in looks between the woman in the video/photos and Rachel Cassidy,” he wrote.

On his page he posts a link to the sex scene — which he describes as “very clear that it was fully VOLUNTARY” — but acknowledges having no evidence of the woman being Cassidy outside of her physical resemblance

The university’s Dean of Students Jenny Hall-Jones has since come forward, however, saying they know the identity of the woman filmed, and it’s not Cassidy.

An Athens police report filed by Cassidy on Oct. 16 also identifies her by police as “not the victim of the referenced sexual assault.”

Police tell the Daily News the assault is still under investigation and has not resulted in a formal charge of rape or filing a false rape report.
