NORTHWOOD, Iowa – The woman law enforcement blames for a false alarm is pleading not guilty.
36-year-old Ty O’Hara Wooten of Clear Lake is charged with one count of false report to a public safety entity, a serious misdemeanor. The Worth County Sheriff’s Office says she reported being the victim of an attempted sexual assault on September 28.
Deputies say Wooten told them she tried to help a man with a car stopped along a rural Worth County road when he pulled out a knife and burned her. An alert was sent out to North Iowa law enforcement for the attacker.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says Wooten admitted making it all up when she was interviewed on September 29, saying she caused the injuries to herself.
A trial has been scheduled for January 31, 2018.
