Woman Files False Rape Claim Because She 'Didn’t Enjoy It'
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A Clarksville woman has been charged after coming clean to police and admitting she lied about being raped.
Police said Lynette Lee admitted to a Clarksville detective last week the rape claim she had made earlier in the month was false. She said she had only made the claim because she did not enjoy the date.
On November 23, Lee had told police that after meeting up with a man she met online at Meetme.com, she and the man had gone back to a hotel together. According to a report, Lee said once at the hotel the man removed her clothes and, despite her protests, had sex with her.
The suspect in the case was called in by Clarksville police and told officers he and Lee had been out on a date and engaged in consensual sex.
During a second interview with police on November 27, Lee told the detective she wanted to drop the entire case because it was a lie. Police said Lee told them she had lied about the incident "because she did not enjoy it and it was bad."
Police charged her with filing a false report. Bond was set at $2,000.
