A Massachusetts woman is facing charges that she lied to police about being sexually assaulted.

Gabrielle Caughey, 21, of Mendon, MA is charged with two counts of theft by unauthorized taking and one count of false report to law enforcement. She was released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Merrimack District Court on Feb. 25.

According to Merrimack Police, Caughey was arrested on Friday on a warrant stemming from an incident that was reported on Oct. 28, 2013. Caughey was a suspect in a theft from a residence. Upon investigating the allegations, it was found that the items in question were pawned at nearby pawn shops by Caughey.

Also during the investigation, Caughey claimed that she was sexually assaulted by a male subject. After further investigation, it was found that her allegations were false.

A warrant was later completed for Caughey's arrest and she surrendered herself to police without incident.

I think the guy who started the idiot registry in DC needs to put false accusers on there too!

Not really, kids do lie about their age.

OK, you want to solve this little problem, here's what you do:
spend more time fixing problems instead of finding people to blame...
Instead of assuming that predators are swarming to the site en mass to molest kids, assume that kids will be curious enough to lie about their age and see what is going on in the world...
As a parent, if you aren't monitoring your child's online activity, then YOU are the problem!
Don't let the government solve the problem for you since all they are going to do is blame somebody or invent a danger that may not yet exist!
So, again, want to solve a problem? Then solve it! Don't exacerbate it!

I think a women who makes tries to frame a man for rape should receive the same sentencing range that a rapist in her state would face. Just like I think someone who tries to frame someone for murder should face the sentencing range a murderer does, or someone who tries to frame another for burglary should get the sentencing range of a burglar.
