False NIC Rape Report Brings Citation

The woman who reported a rape at North Idaho College last week has been ticketed by the city police department for filing a false report. She was charged with the misdemeanor offense after detectives re-interviewed her Tuesday. “We discovered that her report did not match the facts that we uncovered,” said Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Christie Wood. “At this point we’ll let the court process take place.” Police received a report Thursday alleging that a male dressed in women’s clothing waited for her in the first floor bathroom of the Meyer Health Science Building and raped her there on the morning of Jan. 30/CDA Press.

Question: What affect does a fake report like this have on the community?
