Trial next for woman accused of false rape report

(PORT HURON) -- A woman accused of filing a false report of rape and tampering with evidence is going to trial in St. Clair County. Sara Ylen is charged with lying about a sexual assault at her Lexington home last September and using makeup to create what looked like bruises. Trial is scheduled to start Tuesday in Port Huron. In a separate case in Sanilac County, Ylen is charged with four counts of false pretense, using a computer to commit a crime and health care fraud. She's accused of deceiving a hospice service and many supporters into believing she had cancer. Fundraisers were also held. Her final pretrial conference in Sanilac County Circuit Court is set for January 27, 2014 with a trial date tentatively scheduled for February 4. Ylen is well-known in the Thumb because she talked publicly about being a rape victim after a jury in 2003 convicted a man of sexually assaulting her. James Grissom served about a decade in prison before his conviction was overturned.
