    Back Cove assault a hoax ~ Racism?

    Back Cove assault a hoax
    In a case with racial overtones, a woman, 22, faces charges after admitting she lied about being attacked by five men.

    PORTLAND - A woman who told police that she was raped by a group of black men Monday night alongside the Back Cove trail admitted Tuesday that she made up the story, said Police Chief James Craig.

    Police issued a summons ordering Maryanne Morin, 22, of Portland to appear in court to face a charge of filing a false report, a misdemeanor punishable by as much as one year in jail and a $2,000 fine. Morin could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

    Before learning that the woman had changed her story, Craig held a news conference at Back Cove and appealed for witnesses to come forward. He became furious later Tuesday, and said he will push for the maximum punishment.

    Full article doesn't go into specifics regarding her motivation for filing the false report, beyond some kind of disagreement with (gender-neutral language) "her partner". Been seeing a lot of cases like this in the news lately. There was a woman down in Florida convicted of perjury after the man she falsely accused had been in prison for 3 years. Judge gave her a 1 year suspended sentence. That's the world we live in.

    Every time someone makes a false report like this, it does two things.
    A) Undermines the credibility of anyone who tries to bring police attention to an actual sexual assault
    B) Takes police and health service resources away from victims who actually need it

    Just plain sick.
