A Village of Dunedin woman will not be prosecuted in a case in which she was said to have filed a false police report back in 2012.
Paula Jean Ayers, 45, had been arrested by Lake County sheriff’s deputies in July on a warrant charging her with making a false report in October 2012, claiming that a man 20 years her senior had committed sexual battery against her, according to documents on file in Lake County Court.
An arrest had not been possible in 2012, because Ayers had moved to an unknown location in Illinois.
The prosecutor’s office on Sept. 21, filed a notice in Lake County Court, indicating it was dropping the case.
“Due to the lack of evidence the State cannot go forward with the prosecution,” said Brad King, state attorney for the Fifth Judicial Circuit.
