A woman is due in a Port Huron court for arraignment on a charge of falsely reporting a rape.

It's one of two criminal cases for Sara Ylen (WHY'-len). She's also accused of fraud by claiming for years that she had cancer. State police say they couldn't find a doctor who made that diagnosis.

Ylen is scheduled to appear Wednesday in St. Clair County court. Authorities say she falsely accused a man of rape last year and used makeup to create what looked like bruises. She knew the man through a church in the Lexington area.

In November, in a different case, a man convicted of raping Ylen was released from prison after nearly 10 years. New evidence showed Ylen had made false rape allegations that same year in California.
