A Cranberry, Pennsylvania woman has been charged with falsely accusing a police officer of rape after he didn’t respond to the 102 text messages she sent him, according to CBS News.
A criminal complaint filed by the Cranberry Township Police stated that Michelle Milliron felt ignored after having sex with the officer in April, so she made up that he assaulted her.
The officer, 42-year-old Mike Foley, resigned from the North Braddock Police Department in July after pictures of him were discovered online along with an ad soliciting sex. According to CBS News, the ads were seeking out women who had sexual fantasies about cops. Foley denied placing the ad and claimed that he has been set up, but Milliron has not been linked to it, either.
The ad, entitled "White alpha male bull seeking couples/wives/girlfriends,” stated that Foley enjoys "risking getting a woman pregnant so her pathetic man can raise my baby if I do."
"I'm coming for you," Milliron texted Foley, according to the criminal complaint. "So now who has the power? U got one more chance to call me and if you don't I'm going to report you because I'm such a good citizen.”
Milliron also threatened to take Foley down through text messages.
According to the Post-Gazette, Foley’s attorney said that his client’s resignation is not an admission of guilt. He vehemently insisted that Foley resigned so he could “focus all his time, energy and resources on clearing his name.”
Milliron, on the other hand, claims she met up with Foley for sex after responding to an online ad. She claims he got aggressive after he showed up to a hotel in full uniform. She reported the alleged sexual assault a day after Foley resigned.
According to the Post-Gazette, she said she didn't report it earlier because Foley was a police officer and she was intimidated.
