LYONS, Kan. (AP) _ A central-Kansas teenager is sentenced to one-year's probation for falsely reporting to police that two men kidnapped her and held her captive in a basement.
Fourteen-year-old Layla Lee of Lyons was sentenced Tuesday in Rice County after pleading guilty to falsely reporting a crime and obstruction of official duty.
Police said Lee claimed she'd been abducted outside a Lyons grocery store on Sept. 27.
When Lee reappeared on the morning of Sept. 30, she asked for a ride to the police department. She reported she had been abducted and held in a house until her captors released her.
But police were skeptical. And a week later, she admitted the story was false.
