GALEN, N.Y. (WHAM) – Deputies with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office said a Clyde woman lied to them about being blindfolded and raped because she was angry that her date did not give her a ride home.

According to investigators, 27-year-old Jessica Gallagher called 911 to report that she had been picked up by an unknown man she met through a dating app, then was blindfolded, taken to an unknown house and forcibly raped.

Gallagher gave detectives a written statement about the incident describing the situation.


After further investigation by the detectives, Gallagher admitted that she made the incident up because she was angry that the man would not give her a ride home.

Gallagher was arrested and charged with making a punishable false written statement, and falsely reporting an incident. She was arraigned and remanded to the Wayne County Jail in lieu of $500 cash bail or $1,500 insurance bond.

A court appearance has been scheduled for July 18 at 8:30 a.m.
