Well that's good it was found out sooner rather than later. I can imagine if the police had caught someone matching the victim's description, the accuser would have felt pressured to continue their lie, and boom, the person being accused would have their life ruined.

Macular Degenerate: I love stories behind login/pay walls!


Huh? I didn't get anything like that.

I'm assuming this is the entire article:

Columbia police determined Monday morning that an attempted abduction of a 11-year-old boy Friday night never occurred.

Police will forward juveniles charges to Monroe County prosecutors for their review.

"We are extremely happy to learn that this incident did not occur in our community," Police Chief Joe Edwards said. "We are very disappointed that anyone would fabricate an incident of this magnitude."

This hoax follows a similar one that was reported in East Carondelet.

An 11-year-old girl falsely claimed Sunday night that a man attempted to kidnap her while she was with her 19-year-old sister at an East Carondelet park, Police Chief Michael Dennis said.

Two adults who persuaded the girl to make the report were charged Monday with felonies, East Carondelet Mayor Herb Simmons said.

Marlona J. Pollard, 19, of 1206 State St. in East Carondelet, and her boyfriend, Tony M. Johnson, 23, of 4118 Michigan Ave. in St. Louis, each face single counts of disorderly conduct for filing the false reports, Simmons said. Johnson was being held on $40,000 bail and Pollard on $20,000 bail.

"Why people do this? I have no idea," Simmons said. "I'm glad it's put to rest."

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services has been contacted in regard to the girl, Simmons said.

Columbia police had received a report from the 11-year-old boy and his older sister at about 8 p.m. Friday that a man attempted to abduct the boy near West Locust and North Main Street.

Police drew up a sketch of the suspect based on the boy's detailed description of the man. Media and area police departments were alerted in an attempt to identify the suspect.

"The Columbia Police Department made this investigation our highest priority. We have been working around the clock since Friday night to identify the suspect," Edwards said.

But after the leads failed to identify the suspect, police re-interviewed the brother and sister. The older sister admitted to not being with her brother at the incident. Following another interview with the boy Monday morning, police determined the abduction did not occur.

In the East Carondelet case, police originally received a report that a man grabbed the girl and attempted to take her at about 7:45 p.m. Sunday from a park on Seventh Street. She escaped and the man fled east toward Dupo, police were told.

But after interviewing the girl and Pollard, the only other witness, police realized it was a false report.

The abduction report and a description of the suspect were broadcast over ISPERN (Illinois State Police Emergency Radio Network) before East Carondelet police realized the report was a hoax.

Meanwhile, Monroe County authorities do have confidence in the three separate reports they received in July and early August of a suspicious man who was spotted watching or following children in the Waterloo and Hecker areas.

"There is nothing to lead us to believe that these aren't true accounts," Waterloo Police Chief Jim Trantham said.

In all three cases, the witnesses provided a similar description of the man and of his behavior, Trantham said.

The subject is described as a white male with a scruffy beard, who was in his 30s or 40s. He was driving a white Chevrolet Silverado pickup with a tool box and, in one report, a dog in the bed.

So far, the man has not touched the children, Monroe County Sheriff Dan Kelley said.

What would happen would be the prosecutor would threaten 20+ years in jail and offer a plea bargain for 1 year with no sex offender registry because the evidence is thin and unreliable. Prosecutors love to show how they're protecting kids and winning cases and jailing people.

I knew someone who informed a 16 year old his 15 girlfriend was cheating on him, and this turned into a massive shiatfest of molestation accusations. The problem is the young adults' stories kept changing, and the prosecution got cold feet, so they threw down threats of forever-in-jail or a plea bargain for 1 year with no entry in the sex offender registry. The accused had a public defender that said to take the plea bargain (lazy for-profit lawyer being called to PD duty, wants the case to be over fast so he can go back to lawyering for profit).

That's how the legal system works.

Yes, but I've read a few stories where people have been falsely accused of child molestation, cleared of all charges, yet still their lives are tormented by the rejection of the members of their community, many of whom still believe the person is guilty. So there's also that to consider as a consequence when people lie about such charges.
 
2012-08-21 08:54:46 AM
Stories like these are a sad, and unintended (I hope!) side effect of teaching our children to be wary about these sorts of things. I was molested as a kid, didn't know that there might be someone who would do that to me. Got icked out, told my parents, they believed me because i had no knowledge of that sort of thing at all to begin with.

If kids know that molesting is bad, then the odds are higher that they'll use it as ammunition against someone they feel has wronged them.

dopekitty74: If kids know that molesting is bad, then the odds are higher that they'll use it as ammunition against someone they feel has wronged them.


Uhh, I think it's okay to tell your children that being molested is bad. What probably isn't okay is teaching your children that adults will irrationally react to any claim of the child molesting boogie man hiding behind the bushes.

In other words, one third of the males in southern Illinois are suspect. The Ford and Dodge Ram drivers can breath a sigh of relief (for now).

Well, East Carondelet is a small town, so any excitement is better than nothing. Second, they get their 15 minutes on St. Louis TeeVee, so they get to be actors.

Again, being East Carondolet, a LIAR tattoo on them would quickly be buried beneath hundreds of other tattoos. I would suggest branding.

Single counts of disorderly conduct..
"In general, disorderly conduct is charged as a Class C misdemeanor, which carries up to 30 days in jail and $1,500 in fines. However, some disorderly conduct offenses (like peeping into someone's home or filing a false report with police) are considered Class A misdemeanors. These carry up to one year in jail and $2,500 in fines."

So they have up to 40,000 in bail for misdemeanors? They'd have lower bails if they DID kidnap that girl.

A similar thing happened near my son's school last year: a high school girl reported that as she was walking to school a group of Latino men in a pickup truck grabbed her and threw her in the back where they proceeded to grope her, though she managed to get free.
The whole community was on high alert, news vans everywhere, the school sent out automated messages about a meeting at the campus and began plans to pander to its reactionary media-driven audience.
Next day, turns out, the police found out she was completely full of shiat; there was barely a blurb about THAT part of the story in the news.
Many people, especially kids, are starved for their 15 minutes, and are willing to ruin lives if that's what it takes to get their "fame". Few understand or care about those who may be adversely affected.

no, but I remember what I had for breakfast this morning.

CSB time..

One of the last women convicted at the trials was a relation. Ruggles was her last name and she was convicted of witchcraft (Adultery). She had a lover while married, the lover wanted her to himself and killed her husband, then went walking about town in his clothes. They were both hung from the neck until dead.

This is one instance where I'm fine with it. Take away the felonies of two dollar check kiters and weed smokers, and replace with felonies for false witnesses.

MagSeven: Big_Fat_Liar: SyntheticGod8: So two adults, 19 and 23, persuaded two kids to file a false police report about being abducted? Why, by Odin's single eye, would they want to do that? Shiats and giggles? "Ha ha, what a great prank, let's post it on Facebook"? Let's pass a law that tattoos people who file false reports with the word LIAR in increasingly large letters in increasingly visible locations every time they do.

They were friends of a certain Farkette.

How did that actually turn out? Was there an update?


Nope. No update. I've checked several times. Basically the story went from one of the police investigating a hate crime to one of the police investigating the possibility of a hoax. They can't say it was a hoax, but it was a hoax. The police wouldn't have said they were investigating for a hoax if there was ANY evidence at all of the existence of the three criminals. They simply wouldn't go there. The "victim's" 20 minutes in the hospital after being "carved up" by people with hate in their hearts pretty much says "hoax", along with about every other individual detail of the story...which explains why the police are investigating the "possibility" of a hoax.

cwolf20: Next on Law and Order SVU.

Oh wait, they already had an episode where a few teenagers got ticked at a teacher and claimed he abused them


Either that's one of the few SVU episodes I've seen, or they played that trope over and over.

A quick search shows that they've definitely beaten that horse dead: A college student and professor arguing over whether it was consensual or rape, a female high school teacher who raped her way through her classes before getting killed, a middle school teacher accused of raping a girl at a boozy party when it turned out to be her brother's best friend (that was the one I saw), an elementary school coach accused of molesting a girl (who conveniently had a sex offender history) when it was actually the lacrosse team captain, and I'm getting too disgusted to continue.
