Girl Makes Up Story of Gang Rape to Avoid Telling Parents Why She Was Out Past Curfew

A few months back national news was made when a girl was gang raped outside of a high school in an unfavorable Oakland suburb. Same thing supposedly happened Friday, same town, so it was all over the news here all weekend. Now the girl says she made it up.

You can go here for the full story:
http://cbs13.com/local/richmond.kidn...2.1432366.html

Here's a snippet:
The girl told police Sunday that she had had consensual sex with someone, but needed an explanation for why she was late getting home Friday night, Gagan said.

The girl's accusations prompted a major police investigation in Richmond, where the gang rape of a high school girl outside a homecoming dance made national headlines in October.

Dozens of patrol officers, detectives, forensic technicians and nurses had been working on the investigation since the 15-year-old flagged down a San Pablo police officer early Saturday and claimed she had been kidnapped and raped.

"We took her allegations very serious and spent a lot of time, energy and resources to investigate this," Gagan said.

On Sunday afternoon, police found evidence, including video footage, that confirmed the girl had made up her initial story, Gagan said.

Richmond police are trying to determine what happened Friday night and could pursue statutory rape charges if the person she had sex with is an adult, he said.

Investigators have not determined whether they will pursue charges against the girl for making the false report.
I would think given the circumstances surrounding the city with the same thing happening just a few months ago they would pursue this a bit more but from the sounds of it on the local news they're just going to let it slide.

So...a girl reports a false crime, the cops spend a little more than a day investigating and turns out she was lying. I'd be surprised if she wasn't charged with something. The equivalent of "wasting everyone's time".

Not sure what I'm supposed to be outraged about here. False crimes are reported every day.

I wasn't going for outrage, I just thought it was kind of pathetic to concoct a terrible story like that when the whole town was really on end about something like that happening again given what went down in October.

I hope she gets punished. Her actions may discredit real survivors of sexual assault.

i agree.

and with regards to the severity, i think that the person should be punished to the same extent as the crime that they were falsely accusing someone else of doing.

Wow thats extradordinarily harsh. I caught emotions when I read the story on like page 14 of the chronicle this morning, and the girl should and will be punished for her transgressions, but really come on, you want what, life in prison. lol

No, I think he's saying she should have to gang rape someone.
