OTSEGO COUNTY, MI – An Ingham County woman is now facing charges in Otsego County for filing a false police report concerning a sexual assault and kidnapping that was to have occurred on March 26th, 2021.
The Otsego County Prosecutors Office authorized charges against a 19-year-old woman from Holt. Those charges stem from a report that she filed with police where she stated that she had been kidnapped at gunpoint and sexually assault in the Lansing area. She also alleged that she managed to escape her captor while in Elmira several hours later. Through the investigation with the Michigan State Police it was determined that none of what she stated had taken place.
She is now facing one count of False Report of a Felony, Criminal Sexual Conduct, and Kidnapping. Arrangements are being made for her to turn herself in to face the charges during arraignment.
