This is the tearful recording of a married woman making a fake allegation that she was raped to a police emergency call centre in order to get a free STD test.
The 30-year-old Renee Dawn Skoglund made the call to the cops after a one-night stand which she regretted and also wanted to make sure that there were no consequences as a result of the brief fling.
In the scenario she invented on 8th March, she claimed she had been driving along Interstate 75.
She said when she stopped because of car troubles, a man blindfolded her and put her inside a rental car, where he raped her with her legs and arms tied.
She said because she was blindfolded, she could not identify him.
But the story she tearfully repeated here quickly fell apart when it was investigated by cops who discovered her buying the rope that she claimed was used to tie her up.
She has now been sentenced in Tampa, Florida, to two years of community service and eight years on probation.
Prosecutor Jessica Couvertier told the court that the sexual experience had been consensual and added: “Afterwards, she felt guilty about it because of her marital status, and she wanted to get checked out for a sexually transmitted disease.”
In addition, Skoglund, who was visiting the area from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, will have to pay the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office USD 17,245 (GBP 13,697) to cover the cost of the investigation into the fabricated rape claims.
Sheriff Chad Chronister told local media at the time that the case was “truly disheartening”.
He added: “There are far too many victims faced with this type of trauma.
“This woman took advantage of our 911 emergency line and diverted attention from actual victims who need the viable resources available in these investigative scenarios.”
