Woman Charged Over Rape Case

June 23, 2005|Associated Press

A 29-year-old Orange County woman was charged Wednesday with falsely accusing six men of kidnapping her at gunpoint and raping her.

An indictment returned by an Orange County grand jury also accuses Tamara Anne Moonier of Dana Point with fraudulently receiving $1,850 from a state fund for crime victims.

She is scheduled to be arraigned July 8 on two felony counts of making a false police report and one count each of perjury and grand theft. If convicted on all counts, she could be sentenced to as much as four years and eight months in prison.

Authorities said Moonier went to the Fullerton Police Department on June 6 and reported that she had been abducted outside a bar at gunpoint, taken to an unknown location and raped.

Police said one of the men Moonier had accused provided a tape showing that she had orchestrated the sexual encounter.
