Police: Student made up story of sex assault

Saturday, 15 March 2014 09:03 Published in Local News

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Police in St. Charles say a Lindenwood University student who reported being sexually attacked on campus has admitted fabricating the story.

The 21-year-old Des Peres woman is now charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false report.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the university sent an alert to more than 12,000 students after the woman went to police March 7th with her report. The woman told police she had been ambushed several nights earlier by a man hiding in library restroom stall. She said the man threatened her and tried to remove her leggings, but fled after she kicked him.

Police said the woman admitted during an interview this week that she made the story up, but did not explain why she did so.

Illinois lawmakers advance change to GED testing

Friday, 14 March 2014 16:56 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) – A measure allowing high school testing companies other than GED Testing Services to operate in the state is advancing in the Illinois Legislature.
 
Lawmakers say a recent GED price increase from $50 to $120 strains low-income test takers. They say changing the law could drive down costs.
 
The proposal aims to open up competition by substituting “GED” with “high school equivalency tests” in the current law. New tests would still need to pass the state’s education standards for approval.
 
Kari Docherty is a GED examiner in Jefferson and Hamilton counties. She tells WSIL-TV the state could run into problems if the rest of the country still only uses the GED program.
The bill passed the House last week and now moves to the Senate.
