Warrant issued for woman accused of falsifying rape report

Katheryn Marie Louise Clark now has a warrant out for her arrest because she failed to appear in court for falsifying a rape report in December.

Clark missed her Tuesday appearance in Pittsburg County District Court, where she was charged with false reporting of a crime after she allegedly told authorities that she had been raped.

Deputy Jack Suter was sent to Longtown on December 16th and took Clark's report that she had been raped, according to the police affidavit. She stated that she had been dragged by the hair and forced to have sex, while she was biting him and screaming.

A rape kit was performed, and the nurse that performed the kit told authorities that "there was not any evidence of sexual assault," according to the affidavit.

A possible witness, and the person Clark identified in her statement to police, weres interviewed. It was determined that there was no evidence to support the rape claim, and that she had lied about the rape.
