KEENE, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman is going to jail for 60 days after pleading guilty to charges she lied to police about being sexually assaulted by a man she met online.
On May 27, 38-year-old Kerry Touzin of Keene told police she met a Massachusetts man in a parking lot and was later sexually assaulted.
Police developed an online persona of a middle-aged woman and met the same man who was charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault. But the man cooperated with police and investigators later determined the woman lied.
Touzin was arrested June 16 in Berlin, Vt.
Keene police say Touzin appeared in a New Hampshire court on Wednesday where pleaded guilty to a charge of false report to a police officer.
