(Right-wingers like to talk about "fake hate crimes." Here's an actual fake hate crime they DON'T want to talk about)
DENISON, TX The Texas teen who claimed she was abducted and gang raped by three black men is now facing felony charges after she admitted it was all a hoax.
Back in March, the fiancé of 18-year-old Breana Talbott called the Denison Police Department to report he had was looking for Talbott when he found her vehicle parked at an apartment complex with the driver’s door open, and her phone, keys and a shoe lying nearby.
Police immediately brought in all available resources to search for Talbott, but it wouldn’t be long before she walked into a church wearing only a shirt, bra and underwear with visible cuts and scratches on her body.
She told people in the church that she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted in the woods behind the church. She elaborate to responding police, telling them that three black men had pulled her into an SUV and took her into the woods where one man held her down while the other two took turns raping her.
While Talbott was taken to the hospital for examination, police searched the area where Talbott says she was taken and assaulted and found more of her personal items. What police found, in addition to a medical report that showed no injuries related to a sexual assault, led to Talbott’s story unraveling in a matter of days.
Presented with evidence that her story was a crock of shit, Talbott eventually admitted she made it all up that the scene at the apartment and her condition when she walked into the church, were staged.
Talbott was initially arrested and charged with a misdemeanor offense of false report to a peace officer. But prosecutors didn’t feel that charge reflected the seriousness of Talbott’s actions, so now they have charged her with two counts of tampering with physical evidence and and two counts of tampering with a government record.
Three of those charges are felonies that carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
“The more we have looked at what happened in this case, and considered the harm it caused, and certainly could have caused, we believe what she did fits the elements of these higher charges,” said Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown. “What she did was very serious, and we believe it was felony conduct.”
Chief Jay Burch called Talbott’s actions “insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community,” going on to explain that many only remember the reported crime and never the outcome. (which is 100 percent fact)
Good luck with those new charges, you daffy bird. I hope that whatever you were doing behind your boyfriend’s back was worth a possible 30 years behind bars.
