Woman who made up horrific gang-rape story, tried to escape custody finally headed to prison


A Michigan woman who lied about being kidnapped and gang-raped by four black men is heading to prison after trying to flee from jail officers.

27-year-old Leiha Ann-Sue Artman was sentenced to 13 months of prison time after pleading guilty to resisting and obstructing police.

Artman claimed addiction was the reason she was unruly when she was taken into custody for parole violations last year. Claiming she was raped before being sent to the jail, she was sent to an emergency room where she ended up leading lawmen on a chase through a hospital.

“I don’t want to die before I reach 30,” she told Muskegon County Circuit Judge Annette Smedley.

“Ms. Artman, I sure hope this is the last time,” Smedley told Artman after sentencing her.

When pressed for question by MLive, Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat said that “Ms. Leiha Ann-Sue Artman was transported from the Muskegon County Jail to Hackley Hospital based upon information provided by her indicating that she may have been sexually assaulted prior to arriving at the jail.”

In 2016, Artman told authorities that four men had abducted her and raped her at an unknown location after transporting her in the trunk of their car.
