Man wrongly accused of rape speaks out one year later

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Police found inconsistencies in the story of a Fort Collins woman who claimed she was raped soon after she reported the crime, according to a police interview obtained by 7NEWS.

Katherine Bennett, 21, was eventually convicted for lying to Windsor Police when she claimed Dustin Toth kidnapped and raped her. Last year, Toth, now 26, spent the day before Thanksgiving in jail.

That same day, Bennett was called in for questioning.

"Right now the statements I've been given don’t match evidence," the investigator told Bennett, adding that Toth could spend 30 years to life in prison for the crimes she accused him of.

"There are some things that aren’t exactly clear to me and might not be exactly true," Bennett told the investigator. "But did he violently rape me, yes."

When the investigator continued to bring up problems with Bennett's story she said, "It's fine, I'll drop all charges."
