Woman Accused of Faking Rape Faces Fraud Charges

Man served 10 years due to her claims

|

A woman in Michigan's Thumb has been charged with fraud, just days after being charged with making a false report of rape.

Sara Ylen's credibility has been under scrutiny. After nearly 10 years in prison, a man convicted of raping her was released last fall after authorities learned she had made up sexual-assault allegations in California.

That information wasn't available at James Grissom's trial.
