RAPE HOAX ALERT: Woman charged for false report of abduction, rape in Tuscola County, Michigan
A woman has been arraigned on multiple felony charges after police said she lied to them about being abducted and sexually assaulted.
On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Valerie Marie Lesoski was arraigned on charges of false report of kidnapping, false report of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, false report of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree and false report of unlawful imprisonment.
The four-count felony warrant was authorized by the Tuscola County Prosecutor's Office on Nov. 22.
Lesoski, 38, of Caro, told police she stopped to help what she thought was a stranded motorist on Riley Road between Pierce and East Dayton in Wells Township between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30.
Two men instead forced her into an older Chevrolet Lumina, drove her to an unknown location and sexually assaulted her.
However, police believe the attack never happened. They have not released information on why Lesoski allegedly made up the attack.
Lesoski faces up to four years in jail if convicted.
She remains free on a $15,000 personal recognizance bond.
