A 26-year-old woman has admitted making a false accusation that she was raped.
Jade Wass from Darlington, appeared at Teesside Crown Court to admit perverting the course of justice.
The charge states she made a false report to the police in July 2020 that she had been raped by a man only referred to in court as ‘X’ to protect his identity.
It was said she repeated the allegation in person to a named police officer the following day, then again two days later during a video interview.
Judge Howard Crowson adjourned sentencing to allow a psychiatric report to be prepared.
Wass will be dealt with on May 13.
