NH Woman Pleads Guilty to False Rape Report

Keene NH police said a woman pleaded guilty in Keene District Court to making a false report to law enforcement, and will serve one year in jail.

Police said Kerry Touzin, 38, made a false report of rape on May 27. Police said Touzin claimed that she had met a man from Massachusetts on a website called Plenty of Fish and arranged to meet him for a date. Authorities said Touzin reported that when she got into the man’s vehicle, he drove her to a dead-end street in Keene where he sexually assaulted her.

Keene detectives said they developed an online persona of a middle-aged woman, made contact with the man Touzin accused of sexual assault and arranged to meet him in Walpole on June 8. Police said when the man arrived at the meeting place, he was taken into custody without incident and charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault.

While the man was in custody, police said he cooperated with detectives and an investigation revealed that he did not engage in any illegal acts. Police said further evidence revealed that Touzin made a false report to police and she was arrested on June 16.

After pleading guilty in court , Touzin was sentenced to 360 days in the Cheshire County House of Corrections.
