PORT HURON (WWJ/AP) - A 38-year-old woman has been charged with falsely reporting a rape at her eastern Michigan home, five months after a man convicted of sexually assaulting her in a different case was released from prison because of similar reports of bogus allegations.
Sara Ylen told police last September that she was raped at her Lexington home, 80 miles northeast of Detroit. But she has been charged with filing a false report of a felony and tampering with evidence.
Ylen was released on bond after appearing Thursday in a St. Clair County court. She couldn’t be reached for comment Saturday, and it wasn’t known if she has an attorney. An arraignment date has not yet been set, according to court records.
