Police: Mom Forced Daughter To Make Fake Sexual Assault Claim So She Could Sue

Melissa Marie King allegedly forced her daughter to tell deputies that she had been sexually assaulted on the bus.

Graham, NC – A Burlington woman has been charged with lying about her daughter being sexually assaulted on a school bus.

The incident occurred after a female Southern Alamance Middle School student was sexually assaulted on the school bus by an 18-year-old student from Southern Alamance High School, the Times-News reported.

There were allegations that a teacher on the bus knew what was happening and did nothing to stop it.

Deputies arrested 18-year-old Brandon Tyler Lane and 42-year-old Samuel Bradley Freeze in connection with the allegations, the Times-News reported.

Then, on March 11, 35-year-old Melissa Marie King contacted the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office to report that her middle school-aged daughter had also been a victim of the same sexual predator on the bus, WGHB reported.

Detectives investigated King’s allegations that her daughter was also a victim and determined that they were false.

Witnesses told investigators that King had made up the story about the sexual assault on the bus and forced her daughter to tell the false tale to law enforcement, the Times-News reported.

“It is believed this was an attempt to have leverage over Alamance-Burlington School System, where the mother planned to file a lawsuit against the school system in the future,” the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

King was arrested and charged with one count of filing a false report with law enforcement, according to the Times-News.

She was held in the Alamance County Detention Center in lieu of a $500 unsecured bond, WGHB reported.

King is scheduled to appear in court to face the charges on April 1, according to the Times-News.

Good, I hope they throw the book at her. False claims and lawsuits cost taxpayers lots of money.

They need to flip the coin on her. Treat her as if she was the one committing the sexual assault. Also add the actual charges she committed. As far as her wanting to get rich by falsely suing and totally ruining that guys life make her serve at least 10 years in prison and her offense's on record as Federal charges. Use her case to set Court precedence for possible future cases.

When found guilty, she should be have to reimburse the police department for the manhours waisted on the investigation. Besides the sentence the Judge hands out.
