Renee Dawn Skoglund, 30
This woman bought rope to fake a rape so she could get a free STD test from the police?
I don’t know if this is made up, or if women are just this stupid. You can get a free STD test at the state clinic, otherwise, they are like, $80.
A South Dakota woman pleaded guilty to making a false police report after she claimed an assailant raped her in Florida, police say.
Renee Dawn Skoglund, 30, was arrested in Sioux Falls on March 10 after reporting sexual battery in Hillsborough County two days before.
She was charged with misuse of a 911 system, false report of a crime and fabricating physical evidence.
In 911 audio released by Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Skoglund claimed that she pulled over to the side of I-75 after having some car trouble.

She then reported that a male suspect put a towel over her head, shoved her in the car and raped her while her arms and legs were tied.
Skoglund told police that a particular type of rope was used, and authorities discovered that the product was sold at nearby Walmart stores.
During a thorough search of local Walmart locations, police saw surveillance video of Skoglund buying the rope.
According to FOX 13 Tampa Bay, Skoglund – who was married at the time – fabricated the rape to get a free STD test.
In most states, even if the cops knew a woman had faked a rape, they wouldn’t arrest her for it.
