“A college student claimed she was forcibly raped by a man and reported him to police. Now she’s been arrested for filing a false accusation.
On December 16, 2018, Nikole P. Tucker reported that she had been forcibly raped by a man while in her dorm at the State University of New York (SUNY) Adirondack. Police responded and began investigating her claims. During the investigation, police discovered text messages between the 20-year-old Tucker and the man she accused, which proved the sexual encounter had been entirely consensual…
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office charged Tucker with “misdemeanor counts of falsely reporting an incident and making a punishable false written statement,” according to the Post Star. She was arrested on December 27 but released pending prosecution in Queensbury Town Court. Her next court date is January 28.
Tucker is simply the latest in a long line of college women making false rape accusations. The most famous recent example is Nikki Yovino, who claimed two Sacred Heart University football players raped her. Yovino was arrested and charged with making the false accusations, and the innocent men she accused are now suing her and the school for allegedly suspending them over the accusations and revoking their scholarships (though the school denies this).”
