Greenville Woman Charged With Filing False Sex Assault Report

So she was ashamed of being drunk, and that is why she claimed she was sexually assaulted. I guess that is as good a reason as any.

Shanequa Goodwin charged with filing false sexual assault claim.

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Shenequa Goodwin, of Greenville, was arrested early Sunday morning after police said she filed a false sexual assault report.

The police report states Goodwin, 26, called police and reported that after pulling into a gas station she was grabbed and forced into a vehicle.

Goodwin told police she was driven to a house in a nearby neighborhood and sexually assaulted by two men while in the driveway.

Goodwin was intoxicated when she reported teh assault and a written statement could not be taken, the report states.

A weekend duty detective met the officer taking the report and interviewed Goodwin at her home on S. Calhoun Street. During the lengthy interview, the report states Goodwin made numerous conflicting statements.

Finally, Goodwin admitted that she was intoxicated and was not assaulted as she originally reported police said.

She told officers she was engaged to be married and felt ashamed about the incident, so she reported she'd been raped, police siad.

Goodwin was charged after the admission.
