Texas teenager Breana Rachelle Harmon, who lied about being raped by three black men, has pleaded guilty to the charges against for her false claims.
As we previously reported, the
19-year-old claimed that she was snatched out of her car and taken to the woods by three black men, and said that she was taped by two of them, while the third held her down. She walked into a church on March 8, 2017, wearing a shirt, bra, and underwear and told parishioners her lies that would later come back to get her.
The Denison police department started to poke holes within her story days after she showed up at the church, and said that basically everything she said was a lie.
“Our team of detectives, led by John Watt, did an outstanding job in the case,” Denison Police Chief Jay Burch told Chron.com. “Almost from the beginning, we had doubts in Harmon’s story as the puzzle pieces just weren’t coming together. We were unable to corroborate any of Harmon’s allegations that she had been abducted or sexually assaulted.”
Police concluded that she set the crime scene up and her injuries were self inflicted herself.
She pleaded guilty on Feb. 22, 2018 to two counts of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and two counts of tampering with governments records as part of plea deal.
“She’s very remorseful for what she did and what she said,” Harmon’s attorney
said, “and that’s why she decided to plead guilty.”
She will learn her fate on March 20. She faces either regular probation or deferred adjudication.
