Jenny Thibodeaux sentenced for false rape report

Two years of supervised probation is a sentence? Seems like a present, not a punishment.

A woman has been sentenced for filing a false police report after she admitted to making up separate rape and armed-robbery claims in Jefferson Davis Parish.

Jenny Thibodeaux of Pierre Part was placed on two years of supervised probation.

Conditions of the probation include serving one year in the parish jail with credit for time served in an inpatient and outpatient treatment facility for gambling and self-esteem.

The charges resulted from her alleged false complaint of a rape in Jennings in November 2008 and an alleged false complaint of armed robbery, which she said occurred 10 months earlier.

Thibodeaux claimed she was the victim of both crimes, which officers spent months investigating.
