Colonel Steven G. O'Donnell, Superintendent, of the Rhode Island State Police and Commissioner of Public Safety, announces that on Monday, October 28, 2013, members of the Major Crimes Unit charged Isabella Good, age 18, of 150 Oakland Avenue, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, for allegedly falsely reporting a crime.
On October 23, 2013, Ms. Good reported to the Community College of Rhode Island Campus Police and the State Police Lincoln Woods Barracks that she was assaulted earlier that day while in bathroom at the Lincoln Campus. Based on Ms. Good's complaint, the Campus Police issued two campus wide alerts warning students about the incident and describing the alleged assailant.
The investigation of the alleged assault by the Major Crimes Unit did not confirm the information provided by Ms. Good. When MCU detectives re-interviewed Ms. Good she admitted that she was not assaulted and made up the assault allegation to avoid getting in trouble at home.
Ms. Good was processed and arraigned at State Police Headquarters on a charge of False Report of Crime. Justice of the Peace John McCaffrey released Ms. Good on $1,000 personal recognizance and set a re-arraignment date of November 7, 2013.
