Charges filed in fake rape reported at UCSC

Thursday, March 21, 2013

The district attorney's office has filed criminal charges against the young woman who lied about being raped on the UC Santa Cruz campus.

The DA says 20-year-old Morgan Triplett, a UC Santa Barbara student has been charged with giving false information to the police. Investigators say Triplett originally told them, a month ago, that she was walking on a campus trail when she was beaten and assaulted.

A campus wide alert was issued and police issued a sketch of the suspect based on her description, which all proved to be false.
