A 21-year-old has pleaded guilty to one count of false report of a misdemeanor.
Halley Bass told the court that she made up a story about a man who attacked her and scratched her face in Ann Arbor, Michigan on November 15.
“I was suffering from depression at the time,” Bass told Judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines. “I made a superficial scratch on my face. It was visible and I was embarrassed about what I’d done. So I made up a story and told a friend that a stranger had done it while I was walking. I was encouraged to report it to the police. I made the mistake of doing that.
Bass admitted to scratching her own face with the pin after becoming upset during a Woman’s Literature class at the University of Michigan, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department report.
Bass and her Ann Arbor-based attorney, Douglas Mullkoff, requested that she be sentenced through the 15th District’s mental health court. Hines said if court officials determine Bass is eligible, Bass will be sentenced by Judge Karen Valvo in that court on March 22.”
Bass had claimed the attack was apart of supposed wave of hate crimes following the Presidential Election on November 8.
Can you imagine the outrage from the mainstream media if a conservative committed a crime like this?
