The DA will not persecute her out of fear of...and I quote:

What do you think? Should she be charged with a crime for lying about this for so long and costing a man 10 years in prison for a crime he never committed?

Also, how logical do you think it is for the DA to say that this would discourage victims from coming forward?

Seems to me that this would discourage liars for bringing false charges forward.
Problem with throwing her in the can is that it discourages others from admitting that they lied. If she would have been facing punishment, she would have left him in there for how long? Possibly forever?
