False Rape Report

Argyle — A Washington County woman has been arrested for falsely reporting a rape.

State Police have arrested 42 year old Michelle Kidd of Argyle after she told authorities she had been forcibly raped by a stranger in her Cossayuna Lake apartment on August 17th.

A few days later, Kidd recontacted the Investigators and stated that she was able to positively identify her attacker, then pointed out a local resident with whom she was not acquainted.

Kidd eventually admitted that she’d made it all up.

She was arrested for the misdemeanors of falsely reporting an incident in the third degree and making a punishable false written statement.
