A Panama City man was arrested Thursday on charges of filing a false report of a sexual assault.
James H. King, 19, was charged with false report of a crime, according to the Panama City Police Department.
The investigation began on May 16 when King reported a sexual crime
against a 12-year-old. King provided detectives information that
identified a male suspect. During the investigation detectives were able
to obtain evidence that no sexual assault occurred and that King made
the story up.
King provided the false information to detectives in order
to get the suspect he identified into trouble due to King and the
suspect having relationship issues, police said.
