Report: Woman in UC Santa Cruz rape hoax solicited attack


First Morgan Triplett took back her story, admitting it was a hoax. Now we're learning that the 20-year-old UC Santa Barbara student allegedly hired a man to beat her up.

According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, prosecutors say she solicited the man on Craigslist. And then, in exchange for sex, asked to be attacked badly enough to generate a police report.

Triplett could get six months in jail if convicted of filing a false police report.
