Doesn’t the following story remind us of the exploits of Jennifer Wilbanks, the runaway bride. 20 year old, bride to be, Sara White finds herself in a heap of well deserved trouble after faking her own abduction to get out of an on-line internet date. Sara White faces misdemeanor charges for abusing emergency services and sending police on a wild goose chase. Approximately 60 police officers were dispatched to search for what turned out to be a hoax. Police found here at her home. With all the actual unfortunate abductions that occur every day that require the resources of law enforcement maybe states would like to change such false reporting from a misdemeanor to something with a little more teeth.
A bride-to-be who wanted to get out of a date with a man she met on a phone chat line is in trouble with the law, but it seems her future husband is more forgiving.
Sara White is facing a misdemeanor charge of abusing emergency dispatch services for telling authorities she had been hit on the head and dragged into the trunk of a car while sitting in a Sacramento park.
White said she concocted the story Monday after agreeing to met a man — not the one she plans to marry — for a date in a Sacramento park.
Instead of going ahead with the date, she called him and told him she had been kidnapped. (CBS13)
The puzzling question still is why lie and create such an elaborate hoax just to not meet someone that you met on line? Seems a bit extreme. A misdemeanor charge may not be the only thing in Sara White’s future, therapy might be the call as well.
