Staff Report • Apr 27, 2013 at 8:24 AM

A Johnson City woman lied when she reported a burglary and sexual assault on Friday, resulting in her arrest this morning, police said in a news release.

Jennifer Sammons, 1825 Todd Drive, was charged with filing a false police report.

In a news release, police said her arrest resulted from an investigation into a burglary and sexual assault reported on Friday. Police said Sammons admitted she had consensual sex with a person she knew and called emergency service personnel making the false claims.

She was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
