MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – She reported four black men had kidnapped her from her driveway, blindfolded and sexually assaulted her before letting her go. The story is horrific, but it’s also false, according to law enforcement officials who filed lying charges against the Montague area woman.
Leiha Ann-Sue Artman, 25, of 10831 Parkwood in Fruitland Township, has been charged with false report of a felony, which itself is a four-year felony. She is being charged as habitual offender second offense, which increases the maximum penalty to six years.
Artman claimed that at around 6 p.m. on March 27, four black men stopped to ask her directions and then abducted her from her driveway, according to court documents. She told authorities they blindfolded her, bound her hands and threw her in the trunk of their car before she was beaten and sexually assaulted at an unknown location, according to the court documents.
Her boyfriend reported to investigating Michigan State Police troopers that he had received text messages early on March 29 demanding money for Artman’s release, documents show. The text messages, which the boyfriend showed troopers, also included photos of Artman gagged and bleeding from her head, according to the documents.
Artman reported that she later was able to call her boyfriend and he picked her up at a location near her home where her abductors dropped her off, according to the documents. It was not clear whether any money was paid.
Troopers interviewed Artman at Hackley Hospital on March 29.
A preliminary exam has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Aug. 11.
Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat declined to say why investigators believe Artman made up the story.
He said Artman has a 2014 conviction for resisting and opposing a police officer, as well as a felony breaking and entering a building conviction in 2007 when she was a juvenile. She also was sentenced in June to two days in jail and 12 months probation for financial transaction device fraud.
Artman was sentenced in Oceana County in February 2015 for larceny less than $200 and agreed to testify against a co-defendant in return for the dismissal of a breaking and entering a building, the Oceana County Press reported.
