Bay City woman charged with filing false report of rape

BAY CITY, Mich. (WJRT) – A Bay City woman is facing felony charges after making a claim of false rape. 

Police say 24-year-old Emily Larner filed a police report two years ago, claiming a man she knew had raped her.

In a police report, she indicated she had been kicked out of her house after an argument with her mother, went to male friend’s home and he started to make unwanted advances.

Police say the same man had called them before Larner’s report was filed after he learned she had a sexually transmitted disease and did not tell him, so he then asked her to leave.

Larner later recanted the story and admitted to lying. She was arraigned last month on one count of false report of a felony, which carries up to four years in prison and a $2,000 fine.
