Uni student accused of false rape report going to trial

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Douglas County judge Thursday denied two motions to dismiss and suppress portions of the case against a KU student accused of falsely reporting a rape to Lawrence police.

The case, which was brought in January, will go to trial Oct. 28. The woman faces up to 23 months in prison for three felony counts of making a false report.

The woman’s attorneys say she is innocent and has been mistreated by the Lawrence Police Department and the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office after she reported being raped by a friend of her ex-boyfriend in September 2018.

District Attorney Charles Branson says she fabricated the story out of regret and to get back at her ex-boyfriend. Text messages the woman sent the night of the incident indicated to police that the sex had been consensual, according to court documents.'
