Penrith local court has heard yesterday that a woman made false accusations about her partner to police after he allegedly cheated on her.
Between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on July 12, 2012, police attended a home in North St Marys after a call was made by the 20-year-old woman to 000 alleging that her partner was threatening her with a knife. Police spoke to both the man and woman before arresting the man. The woman provided police with a signed statement that night about the incident.
However, on September 20, 2012, the woman attended St Marys police station and told police that her partner did not in any way stand over her, yell at her or assault her that evening in July. She admitted that she was actually the person who committed assault – she had hit him in the shin with a pole. She admitted that the reason she called 000 was to get revenge on her partner for allegedly cheating on her.
The woman was convicted yesterday at Penrith Local Court of making false accusations and misleading police and was directed to enter into a good behaviour bond for 12 months.
