WEEKI WACHEE - A woman was arrested at her Palm Creek Drive home early Wednesday after admitting she filed a false police report.

Stacy L. Francis, 31, filed a sexual assault report a day earlier with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, and gave details of the supposed assault during a sworn, taped interview.

An arrest affidavit shows that when questioned about inconsistencies in her story, Francis admitted she made the story up because her boyfriend was jealous of her.

Francis was arrested on the misdemeanor charge, and booked at the Hernando County Jail on $500 bail.

Court records show Francis was adjudicated guilty by Judge Kurt Hitzemann on Wednesday, and sentenced to five days in jail.
