False Reports to Law Enforcement Archives

York County Girl Avoids False Reports to Law Enforcement Charge

A 15 year old girl will avoid being charged with "false reports to law enforcement," despite her fabricated report of an attack by four unknown teenage boys on April 9, 2013, in Manchester, York County. The girl reported to Northeastern Regional Police that these four, fictional boys called her derogatory names and groped her, but she managed to fight them off. At the time, she was praised for her "bravery" and for keeping her wits, which allowed her to provide detailed descriptions of the hoodlums. One woman even contacted police, after news of the assault was made public, to report seeing a group of boys in the area around the time of the assault who matched the descriptions.
