False gang rape accuser charged

A follow-up to a news report from earlier this month:

Warrant Issued Over False Accusations

FRANKLIN COUNTY - A warrant has been issued for an Ozark woman accused of filing a false police report. Police say late last month 32 year old Angela Blackburn made the claim that three adult men and a juvenile male raped her at a party.

They were arrested and charged for the crime, however, they were later released after Blackburn reportedly confessed to police that she had lied to authorities about the alleged rape. The men told 5NEWS Blackburn showed up uninvited to the party, caused problems, and was asked to leave. Police say Blackburn is now a felony charge for allegedly filing a false police report.
