Rape liar who cost you £22k

THE fake cries of a rape liar cost the taxpayer £22,000.

Sneaky Sheena Heasley told cops she was the victim of a serious sexual assault in a warped bid to get sympathy from her boyfriend.

Police wasted £22,000 of public cash investigating her web of lies — enough to put a constable on the beat for a year.

But after examining the case for more than 100 hours they finally realised Heasley was talking nonsense.

The 31-year-old Lurgan mum was charged with wasting police time and making a false report.

She was sentenced to three months in prison, suspended for two years, when she appeared at Craigavon Magistrates' Court last week.
