The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office says Lori Ferguson, 41, was arrested on Friday and charged with filing a false police report.
According to investigators, Ferguson filed a report on July 2nd claiming her boyfriend, Anthony Pressley, sexually molested her 1-year-old daughter while changing her diaper. Ferguson claimed multiple times throughout the investigation, deputies say, that she walked in on the alleged act.
Detectives say they found no evidence of a sexual assault however, and Ferguson eventually admitted to making the story up.
Ferguson reportedly told investigators that she wanted to get back at Pressley after he made her mad.
She is being held on a $5,000 bond.
