She certainly wouldn't.  The most glaring problem with her claim was 
precisely that she could not fulfil the most basic drishot: "when and 
where did this allegedly happen"?  Without being able to specify these 
it becomes "eidut she'i ata yachol lehazima" -- it's impossible to claim 
that the accused was elsewhere that day, let alone the witness.

Zev Sero            A prosperous and healthy 5779 to all
