You make it sound as though each (victim and accused) has equal motivation to lie.
What ever happened to being innocent until proven guilty? I really hope you aren't suggesting we convict people of a first-degree felony based on your subjective interpretation of how much "motivation" the victim had to lie.
There needs to be evidence beyond a reasonable doubt to convict someone, and if that means some rapists go free, that is simply an unfortunate side effect of a just legal system.
