An unidentified woman who was reported missing by the public has been charged with creating public mischief by the courts after a police investigation revealed that her story of being raped last year was false.
According to social media reports at that time, the missing woman was found days later after being reported missing. Officers from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) then conducted an investigation where it was found that the woman had created a story.
As stated in court documents obtained by a reliable news source, the woman disclosed that the reason she disappeared was because she was stressed at the time.
The unnamed woman appeared before Senior Parish Court Judge, Michele Salmon in the St Ann Parish Court last Friday and had pleaded guilty to the charges before her sentencing date. She was ordered by the court to be counseled by the Probation Department for two years.
Head of the St Ann Police, Superintendent Dwight Powell warned persons against making false claims to the police as they will lead to consequences.
“I’m going to say to the public that whenever they are making reports to the police, they must be certain of where they are going because when those reports are investigated and they are not proven, there are other recourses that are left for law enforcement” stated Supt. Powell.
