Sara Ylen expected back in court July 9 in fraud case

(LEXINGTON) -- Sara Ylen appeared in Sanilac County District Court Tuesday for her pre-preliminary exam on six felony charges stemming from a lengthy investigation into fraud. Bond for the 38-year old Lexington woman was continued and her preliminary exam was set for July 9 at 1:30 p.m. Ylen has been charged with

false pretenses, using a computer to commit a crime, and health care fraud after claiming for years that she had cancer. State police say they couldn't find a doctor who made that diagnosis. The fraud case in Sanilac County is one of two criminal cases against Ylen. She's also accused of filing a false felony report and tampering with evidence in St. Clair County. A preliminary exam is set for June 18 at 9:30 a.m. in St. Clair County District Court. 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. In November 2012, 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.
