Police charge girl with lying about rape

February 23, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 15-year-old girl has been charged as a juvenile with making a false statement to police when she alleged last week that she had been raped on a trail near Old Mill High School in Millersville.

Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. Joseph E. Jordan said the teen, an Old Mill student, made the statement last Tuesday, alleging that a group of men raped her that morning on a wooded path near the school. She later recanted.

Also last week, another Old Mill High student claimed she had been raped at the school but later admitted she hadn't been assaulted.
