Jury Quickly Convicts Woman in False Rape Trial.

11 posts in this topic

PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan woman accused of lying for years about having cancer was convicted Thursday in a separate case of falsely accusing two men of rape.


The jury took less than 30 minutes to convict Sara Ylen after a three-day trial in St. Clair County, 60 miles northeast of Detroit.


Ylen was charged with making up a story of two men attacking her in her Lexington home in 2012. Ylen, 38, was also convicted of tampering with evidence after police said she used makeup to create what looked like bruises. She did not testify in her own defense.


Ylen's story resembled a "cheap novel," prosecutor Suzette Samuels told jurors.


"She's lying through her teeth. ... This was unreal," Samuels said.


In final remarks, defense attorney David Heyboer said police did not follow up on other leads and didn't go to Ylen's house for a close examination of what took place.


Judge Daniel Kelly revoked Ylen's bond and sent her to jail to await sentencing on Jan. 17.


 


Her legal problems, however, are far from over.


Ylen faces trial on Feb. 4 in neighboring Sanilac County, where she's charged with fraud and false pretenses for claiming she had cancer.


Ylen received months of hospice care and thousands of dollars from sympathetic supporters, but there's no evidence that she had cancer, according to the state police.


She claimed she was a patient at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, Ill., but the hospital said Ylen never was treated there. During pre-trial hearings, prosecutors disclosed forged documents with University of Michigan medical center letterhead.

Women like her make it harder for real rape victims to get justice. If it was up to me the sentence for falsely accusing of rape would be whatever the person would have received had they been declared guilty.

The problem with that is that is it further discourages victims from coming forward.

The folks up in St. Clair County don't stand for this kind of crappy manipulation. Good for them.

As to punishment, to get this far this fast means they had the goods on her. Perjury should be among. the most serious of crimes, and punished harshly. Throw the max at her.

I don't think it's worth it to prevent real victims from being discouraged. Right now Women are basically allowed to accuse indiscriminately without fear of repercussion. The second someone is accused of rape, their life is ruined, the amount of times people accused of rape are fired from their jobs before the verdict is even heard, word gets around in the community, death threats are made etc.

That may be the understatement of the year. :D

 

I hate habitual liars. I have no sympathy for them at all.
