COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -

A 19-year-old woman has been indicted after authorities say she filed a false report claiming she was raped at the Putnam County jail.

Following her release from jail for a DUI charge, Lacee Smith reportedly told her boyfriend she had been raped while jailed.

Authorities began investigating Lacee Smith’s allegations last November.

During the course of their investigation, and after reviewing the jail’s surveillance video, it was determined Smith was not raped while in custody.

During an interview with investigators, Smith later admitted she made up the story in an effort to get attention from her boyfriend.
