BAY CITY, MI – A 21-year-old woman has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for lying about being raped in a Delta College parking lot.

In February, Mary Zolkowski told police she had been raped by a black man in a parking lot at the college.

During their investigation,  police learned a parolee with sexual assault convictions was on campus at the time of the alleged attack.

The man was questioned and denied any knowledge of the incident. He was also subjected to a polygraph test that he passed.

Zolkowski’s story was already falling apart by then and it didn’t help that she was unwilling to participate in the investigation or submit to a physical examination.

When police were unable to find any evidence that a sexual assault had occurred and confronted Zolkowski with some inconsistencies with her story details, she simply changed her story.

This time it wasn’t a black man in a parking lot that raped her. This time it was an acquaintance who had raped her at his apartment. She did not want the man prosecuted, however.

Police interviewed the man who admitted he’d had sex with Zolkowski but that it had been consensual.

He also provided investigators with text messages in which Zolkowski claims to have been raped by a stranger at Walmart, and other messages where Zolkowski asks him not to cooperate with police.

When presented with the new details found by the investigators, Zolkowski finally admitted she’d lied about the rapes. She pleaded guilty to false report of a felony in March and was facing a possible four years in jail.

She didn’t get that much time but to be honest I am surprised she got any at all. On Monday she was ordered to serve 45 days in jail, with no credit for any time served.

Afterward, she’ll be on probation for two years, during which she is to be tested for drugs and alcohol and participate in substance abuse counseling. If she violates her probation, she will serve another 220 days in jail.

Personally, I feel she should have done the max time — as should anyone who falsely reports a sexual assault. If I were either of the two men she falsely accused I would sue the shit out of her.
