Police charge McConnellsburg woman over false rape report

The falsely accused in the story below was her ex-boyfriend. While the article doesn't state why she made the accusation, I'm going to guess she was angry with him for some reason.

Rachela Spriggs faces charges

A McConnellsburg woman faces charges for allegedly reporting a rape that apparently didn't happen.

Rachela Spriggs, 20, reported on April 8 that she had been raped by an ex-boyfriend on March 27, according to Pennsylvania State Police, McConnellsburg. Spriggs reportedly provided investigators with a detailed account of the incident.

Police said Spriggs admitted to lying about the incident on April 13. She provided a written statement that the allegations against her ex-boyfriend were false.

A criminal complaint was filed Saturday, charging Spriggs with making false reports to law enforcement.
