Boise Woman Recants Claim of Sex Assault in North End


A Boise woman has recanted her initial claim that she was sexually assaulted on Dec. 5 at her North End home. Law enforcement has forwarded the investigative report to Ada County prosecutors, who will consider a charge of filing a false police report against the woman.

Boise Police announced late Friday afternoon that as detectives investigated the woman's claim that she was pushed into her front door and sexually assaulted near 15th and Lemp streets in the early morning hours of Dec. 5, the victim ultimately told detectives that she had made up the story.

Filing a false police report is a misdemeanor under Idaho Code with fines and penalties set by judges.
