More perverse incentives?

2004 July 29

Kobe Bryant’s accuser, who has been painted by the defense as a troubled woman, has apparently taken advantage of “nearly $20,000” in state money available to alleged victims. Could this fund motivate a false charge? Some don’t think so:

Karen Steinhauser, a former prosecutor and visiting professor at the University of Denver law school, said she doesn’t believe compensation funds have ever been an incentive for somebody to lie to obtain services.

I’m no Bryant apologist, but there is a chance, which should be taken seriously, that Ms. Steinhauser is wrong.
