Woman charged with filing false rape report

Once again, it appears to be a case of crying rape to get out of trouble for another crime.

Amy Leann Bryant charged for filing false rape accusation.

A woman who claimed her boyfriend raped her is charged with fabricating the story, according to an affidavit filed in Sumner County General Sessions Court.

Amy Leann Bryant, 28, of Lebanon, was pulled over by Gallatin police on Jan. 21 for DUI. At that time, she told officers that her boyfriend had raped her.

She was transported to Sumner Regional Medical Center, where she submitted to a rape kit. According to the affidavit, Bryant then went to the Gallatin Police Department, where she allegedly admitted that she might have lied about being raped. According to police, the investigation determined that no rape occurred.

Bryant was charged with filing a false report. Her bond was set at $1,000. She is scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on March 16.
