Laurie Martinez really, really, really wanted to move out of her Sacramento, Calif. neighborhood, but her husband didn't share the same view. Instead of breaking her lease or wait till the lease expire, Laurie staged her own rape to get her husband to move. According to police, Laurie, who's a prison psychologist, ripped open her shirt exposing her breasts and had a friend (April Snyder) punch her in the face with boxing gloves and urinated on herself. She told police she came home to find a stranger in her kitchen. She said the man knocked her unconscious, raped and then robbed her. She claimed the man stole her purse, two laptop computers, an Xbox video game console, a camera and numerous credit cards, but in actuality, the items were at April's home. Laurie was arrested and charged with giving police a fake story. There's a warrant out for April's arrest. BTW: Laurie's husband filed for divorce six weeks later.

Police say the woman has been dead for months and Devon was charged with murder. He made his first appearance in court hearing today and he took that opportunity to unleashed the crazy.
Poor Dawn Marie McGovern. She's clueless. The 40-year-old Mt. Pleasant, SC woman was arrested recently after a cop -- wearing a hidden video camera -- learned first hand she was giving happy endings after massages in her home -- for $150 a pop. Dawn said that after losing her job a few months ago she needed a way to support herself and pay child support. She said didn't it was illegal as long as she asked permission first. We guess she skipped that chapter in Prostitution For Dummies. She was charged with prostitution and operating a business without a license.
