Investigation shows woman falsely accuses two police officers of sexual assault

Carolyn Jensen was arrested for drunken and disorderly behavior and was taken to police headquarters for processing. She called her boyfriend to come get her, and claimed that the two transporting officers had sexually assaulted her. A lengthy investigation found no evidence to support the allegation.

Jensen has been admitted to a so-called "Pre-Trial Intervention" program, and if she successfully completes it, she'll be free, with no criminal charges on her record. She was accepted to this program by Superior Court Judge Thomas Manahan, with no admission of wrongdoing. The program calls for supervised probation and 50 hours of community service.  Robert Weber, Morris County Assistant Prosecutor, that that PTI was appropriate, after a psychological report noted that Jensen has a history of alcohol abuse.
