Sara Ylen preliminary exam rescheduled in St. Clair County

(ST. CLAIR COUNTY) -- The preliminary examination for the 38-year old Lexington woman charged with filing a false felony report and tampering with evidence has been rescheduled. Sara Ylen's preliminary exam in St. Clair County District Court Tuesday, June 4 was rescheduled for Tuesday, June 18 at 9:30 a.m. to give her lawyer time to review case files. Authorities say Ylen falsely accused a man of rape last September and used makeup to create what looked like bruises. The false felony report charge carries a maximum 4-years in prison, while the tampering with evidence charge carries a maximum 10-years if convicted. The charges in St. Clair County are from one of two criminal cases against Ylen. She's also accused of six felony counts of fraud in Sanilac County after claiming for years that she had cancer. State police say they couldn't find a doctor who made that diagnosis. Her pre-preliminary exam in Sanilac County is set for June 11. In November, in a different case, a man convicted of raping Ylen was released from prison after nearly 10-years. New evidence showed Ylen had made false rape allegations that same year in California and the St. Clair County prosecutor's office dropped the case.
