A Santa Rosa woman charged with filing a false report after she claimed she was drugged and raped by a police officer and others is fighting the allegation in court.
Danielle Charter, 24, faces up to six months in jail if prosecutors can prove she knowingly lied about the litany of assaults she said she suffered after being arrested for public drunkenness by Santa Rosa officers.
The rare criminal charge was filed after an investigation by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office concluded that her claims, laid out in a graphic detail in a 23-page statement, were baseless.
“Any time someone makes false allegations, it’s doing a disservice to all true victims out there,” said Capt. Matt McCaffrey, a sheriff’s office spokesman.
Her attorney, Santa Rosa women’s rights activist Tanya Brannan, said Charter stands by the story and will appeal any conviction to a higher court. She accused prosecutors of bringing the charges to intimidate Charter.

Bout time. This is fairly common place now a days. I also hope the officer sues the crap out of her. People should be charged everytime.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
