REDMOND, Wash —  Rape charges have been dismissed against a former Microsoft program manager after it came to light the accuser had a history including a false sex assault claim.

Vineet Kumar Srivastava, 37, was allegedly in his Microsoft office when a female custodian said he attacked her.

Prosecutors said they moved to dismiss the case after learning the woman had made up a rape allegation against an ex-boyfriend.

Srivastava had always denied all charges, saying the woman came on to him and forced him to have sex.

    This story always sounded like somebody's weird fantasy. Women should report assaults and harassment , but not make them up.
