A man who had been charged with rape was cleared in court on Monday, and the alleged victim wound up facing charges.
Tamara Peterson, who earlier claimed she was raped by her former boyfriend Rodney Lomnick, told General Sessions Court Judge Clarence Shattuck that it didn't happen.
The judge then dismissed the rape charge.
He followed that up by taking Ms. Peterson, 21, of Cypress Street Court, into custody on a charge of filing a false report.
Ms. Peterson earlier told police that Lomnick approached her after she got off work. She said he was trying to get her to resume dating him.
She said she went to a friend's house and he came inside and was trying to get her to walk down to her house so they could talk.
She said when she refused that Lomnick followed her upstairs and started asking about her new boyfriend. She said he grabbed her by the neck, then forced her on a bed and began performing a sex act on her. She said he then had sex with her against her will.
She said later in the day that Lomnick came to her house and was crying and saying he was sorry. She said he asked her to not call police.
But she went to the Rape Crisis Center and police were called.
