Cops: Unity woman coerced teen into making false sexual assault claim
A Unity woman is accused by state police with coercing a teenage boy to make a false sexual assault complaint.
Christina D. Hall, 38, of the village of Hostetter, is charged with making false reports of child abuse and corruption of minors by state police in Greensburg.
Trooper James McKenzie alleges that Hall told the child to make a false sexual abuse allegation against an individual in Greensburg.
“… Hall threatened, if (the teen) did not make this allegation, she would kill (the accused person) by shooting them or burning their house down,” McKenzie wrote in the complaint.
McKenzie reported that the teen made the allegation against the individual, but recanted it it shortly after being questioned by authorities.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Oct. 10.
Hall could not be reached for comment. An attorney was not listed in court documents.
