Washington Police Chief Steve Mylett was accused of rape by a woman.
He was subsequently put on administrative leave.
The thing is, the woman has been caught lying.
Just imagine if something like this happened to you.
From Daily Wire:
A Bellevue, WA police chief was cleared on charges he raped a woman after it was discovered she created fake emails to prove her accusation.
Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett says he is moving on from the false accusations, made by a woman who still is not being named, but seems likely to be charged with multiple crimes relating to her claims. The Seattle Times reports that Mylett was cleared after a two-and-a-half month investigation completed by neighboring Bothell police.
The 44-year-old Issaquah, WA, woman who accused Mylett claimed he raped her two years ago at his Bothell home during an encounter arranged “through an adult sex website.” The woman also made accusations against two other Bellevue detectives, which led to domestic violence and witness tampering charges against one of them (those charges were dropped earlier this month).
The Seattle Times notes: “Bothell investigators found Mylett’s accuser had gone so far as to create phony, backdated email exchanges that contained the address of a Bothell rental home where Mylett temporarily lived.”
“But lease records and other evidence proved Mylett had moved out of that house prior to when the woman claimed the assault occurred, and DNA tests ruled Mylett out as a possible match to genetic evidence gathered from clothing the woman turned over as part of the case.”
The accuser apparently had a history of meeting men on Craigslist and later claiming she was raped.
The Times added: “Bothell police have since forwarded probable-cause findings against the woman recommending charges of perjury, tampering with evidence and making a false statement to police.
“Prosecutors are now reviewing the case. A lawyer representing the woman said earlier Tuesday he wasn’t able to comment on the open investigation for ethical reasons.”
Mylett said, “I think the process of the claims that were made against me worked, and I think another process will take place and I am confident that the right decisions will be made.”
He added: “I have a deeper appreciation about what it means to be falsely accused, and I also have a deeper appreciation of what it’s like to be on administrative leave,” Mylett said. “And I think it will make me a better chief and a better human.”
