I don't know why seeing this news remind me of the the Sidney Sheldon's novel "If Tomorrow Comes", where the lead character gets onto wrong side of bigger politics and gets advised that she will be acquitted if she confess a crime which she has not done. This trap gets her into the jail.
Even a Hindi movie has been made on same lines. It was Urmila Matondkar and Saif Ali Khan movie "Ek Hasina Thi". Both in movie and novel, our heroine gets even with the culprits by taking "kanoon in her own hands", but that was fiction.
What is truth?
