A former California psychologist who faked a rape attack in an effort to convince her husband to move to a new neighbourhood today pleaded no contest to a felony conspiracy charge.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Kevin J. McCormick sentenced Laurie Ann Martinez to five years probation, six months of electronic monitoring and ordered her to pay $4,463.32 in restitution for the police investigation.
Yup, that'll be this case.

And I was right about her chances of hanging on to her job:
On top of that comes the personal cost - her husband has divorced her, and she was fired from her job as a psychologist at California State Prison, Sacramento.

The Annie Wilkes doppelgänger, to boot. Just the Samaritan needed when the car goes off the road in a blizzard.
