    Laurie Ann Martinez, a prison psychologist with the California Department of Corrections, was charged Friday with faking her own rape in order to convince her husband they needed to move. Martinez conspired with a friend to create the appearance that she was beaten, robbed and raped in her Sacramento home in April, according to conspiracy charges filed by the Sacramento County district attorney. Investigators say she split her own lip with a pin, scraped her knuckles with sandpaper and had her friend punch her in the face with boxing gloves they bought for that purpose. She ripped open her blouse...

    NEW YORK - Heidi Jones, former New York tv meteorologist, admitted Wednesday she'd made up claims of being repeatedly attacked by a stranger on the city streets, allegations that sparked an extensive investigation before police said she told them she'd invented the story to get attention. Jones, 38, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two misdemeanor counts of falsely reporting an incident. The judge says she will be sentenced to three years' probation and 350 hours of community service -- the same amount of time prosecutors say police spent looking into her false claims, reports CBS station WCBS. It took over nine...

    Jennifer Beeman, the former UC Davis employee who oversaw the Campus Violence Prevention Program for 16 years, was arrested today on suspicion of embezzling public funds and committing eight other felonies related to misusing public money. Investigators believe Beeman embezzled between $2,000 and $13,000, according to a statement from UC Davis. In addition, UC Davis returned more than $100,000 to the U.S. Department of Justice after determining that unallowable expenses had been charged to a violence prevention grant Beeman administered. . . . Beeman had falsely inflated the number of forcible sex offenses that took place on campus in 2005,...
  • Hofstra rape case: DA wrestles with charges against woman

    Prosecutors deciding whether to charge the woman who falsely reported that she was gang-raped in a Hofstra men's room last week will have serious issues to weigh, experts said Monday. On the one hand, they will want to discourage people from lying to law enforcement, and show that there will be consequences for doing so, experts said. On the other, they don't want to discourage legitimate rape victims from coming forward, or discourage people who lied at first from telling the truth later on, experts said. "That's the tension right now in the D.A.'s office," said Jim Cohen, a criminal...

    A waitress trying to cover up an affair fabricated a story about getting raped in a deserted Queens playground Wednesday, police said. The 32-year-old woman told cops she finished her shift at an East Elmhurst diner just after 4 a.m., and was followed by two men near 98th St. and 25th Ave. They hit her over the head, dragged her to a playground adjacent to Public School 27 and sexually assaulted her, she claimed. But detectives, who combed the playground and checked surveillance tapes, uncovered holes in the alleged victim's time line and determined that her story was false. A...

    REDWOOD CITY -- A San Mateo mother who lied about being sexually assaulted at gunpoint by a group of men after her car supposedly broke down in Foster City was sentenced today to 90 days in jail for filing a false police report. Karyn Galila, 24, sobbed in a Redwood City courtroom as Commissioner Kathleen McKenna ordered her taken into custody immediately. Galila was handcuffed as her husband looked on. He tried to hug her before she was led away, but was ordered by a bailiff not to touch her. "This was such a detailed, fabricated story," said McKenna, the...

    San Francisco - Police said today that last month's report of a woman raped by the same man twice in five days was fabricated and composite sketches the woman helped generate of her alleged attacker have been removed from the department's Web site. A 27-year-old woman first told police that on Nov. 10 she was assaulted on the street during a purse snatching and again five days later after the assailant apparently learned her address and attacked her at her home. She did not report the first attack until after the second one supposedly occurred. The woman told police that...

    Imagine coming into work one day to find yourself confronted by a police detective who explains that you've been accused of molesting someone. You know that if the detective believes your accuser and a prosecutor can convince a jury you're guilty, you're going to prison. When you get out, you'll spend the rest of your life as a registered sex offender, unable to live where you want or be around children, even your own. To make matters worse, you know you're innocent. That's exactly what happened to Knox County Sheriff's Office Deputy Mark Belliveau after he arrested Mary Katherine Baggett,...

    Your brain can distinguish between real and fake memories, even if you can’t. Tell the truth: our brain can sometimes reveal if our memories are real or false.stockbyteIt’s a common situation: you’re embroiled in an argument over a fact and you know for certain that you have the right answer. But when someone rushes to their laptop to google the correct answer, you discover that you were wrong. Whether in a fight with a spouse or giving testimony on the witness stand, it is clear that our memories are not always trustworthy. Now, researchers have found that although those vivid...

    LAKE CITY — A Lake City woman who first told authorities she had been raped in a church cemetery early Sunday morning later admitted she lied about the attack, according to reports from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department. Shannon Ruffler, 23, will now be charged with making a false report, Deputy Jefferson L. Davis reported. Ruffner initially told another deputy she was injured when a man sexually assaulted her in the cemetery behind Pine Hill Baptist Church on Beech Grove Road.

    An Antelope woman could be facing charges after admitting to Sacramento County Sheriff's detectives that she staged a crime scene and lied about being sexually assaulted last month. The 29-year-old woman reported to deputies on Sept. 17 that she came home found two men burglarizing her house on Pepperridge Drive. She told deputies that one of the men fled, but the other sexually assaulted her before she left, sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said. Sheriff's detectives from the department's Sexual Assault and Elder Abuse Bureau responded to the scene and began an investigation, but discovered many inconsistencies between the victim's...

    MARYVILLE - A woman who told authorities she was raped Sunday night near a strip mall on U.S. Highway 411South has admitted the story is bogus and said she fabricated the attack account because she was depressed and wanted attention. Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp announced the developments at a press briefing Wednesday afternoon and added that the woman admitted that her injuries - several lacerations and a broken nose - were intentionally self-inflicted. Crisp identified the woman as Tiffany Ranee O'Connor, 28, of Maryville. O'Connor has been charged with filing a false police report, a Class D felony. She...

    DURHAM, N.C. - The prosecutor in the Duke lacrosse rape case has heard the criticism from experts and armchair lawyers, and said Monday he is comfortable with nearly all the decisions he has made and confident about taking the case to trial. "I think that I have a responsibility to prosecute this case," District Attorney Mike Nifong said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I think that really nothing about my view of the case and my view of how the case ultimately needs to be handled has been affected by any of the things that have occurred." Nifong,...

    An investigation into convicted killer Sarah Johnson's claim that she was raped in an Idaho jail while awaiting trial for her parents' murders concluded that the teenager is a "liar" and her allegations unsubstantiated. Following a three-month probe into the jailhouse rape allegations made by Johnson, who is serving life without parole for the 2003 shooting deaths of her parents, Alan and Diane Johnson, a team of sheriffs from outside jurisdictions determined that her story "lacked credibility." But Johnson's supporters say the investigation's findings are yet another example of the corruption and bias against Johnson from the Blaine County Sheriff's...

    The young black women can almost finish each other's stories. They go to a party, a concert, a nightclub. Twenty-somethings of all colors are flirting and dancing. And then it happens. Inevitably, a woman says, a white man asks her to dance erotically while he watches. Or he grabs her rear end. Or asks for sex, in graphic detail, without bothering to ask her name. "We can sort of count on it happening. My friends from California and New York and Boston all tell the same stories," said 22-year-old Danielle Terrazas Williams, a graduate student at Duke University. "They're watching...

The Boston Glob(e) published these pictures as being genuine without bothering to verify them.As it turns out the pictures actually come from a fetish porn site of men in camouflage having sex with porn actress.
