Police Determine Sex Was Consensual

I was unable to find a news report for this story, so I will have to take it with a grain of salt. If anyone can find more on it, please share the link. The link in the middle of the story is to the Docket report on the case, with the charges being filed.

Police determine sex was consensual.

After an intensive investigation, which included interviews, polygraphs, forensic work and lab analysis, Pennsylvania State Police have determined that the rape allegations against two known males, alleged to have occurred in Wharton Township, Potter County, on April 26, 2009, were false.

Troopers said it was determined that while sexual intercourse took place, it was consensual.

Jennifer Micale, 19, of Brusselles Street, St. Mary's, PA, is being charged by troopers with several counts of filing False Reports, in District Court 55-3-01.

On April 26, 2009, the then 18-year-old woman, told police two men drove her to a camp along Route 872 in Wharton Township at 2:30 in the afternoon, raped her and drove her home. Police have never released the identity of the two known male suspects who were accused.

The news release said the investigation, which has spanned several months, is continuing.
