A married South Dakota woman admitted that she filed a bogus rape report in Florida to obtain a free STD test after cheating on her husband, but only after cops discovered she bought the rope she claimed her assailant used to tie her up, from a local Walmart store.
Renee Dawn Skoglund, 30, will spend two years under community control – a form of house arrest and eight years on probation. She was also ordered to pay a fine of $17,245.26, representing the cost of law enforcement investigating her fake claim. 
STD tests cost as little as $24 in Hillsborough County, Florida, where Skoglund reported on March 8 that she’d been the victim of sexual battery.
According to 911 audio that was released, she claimed she pulled over to the side of a road with car trouble, a man tied up her hands and feet, put a towel on her head, shoved her in the car and raped her. 
Investigators however became suspicious when she was too specific about the type of rope used to bind her, a brand sold at a local Walmart
Police requested security footage and spotted Skoglund herself buying the cord. 

Renee Skoglund was caught on surveillance footage buying the rope she used to fake a sexual assault. ‘She attempted to change her statements before eventually admitting to fabricating the entire incident,’ police said. 

‘Following this discovery, detectives recovered video from multiple places Mrs. Skoglund visited in the time surrounding the attack, refuting her initial statements,’ the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. 
‘She attempted to change her statements before eventually admitting to fabricating the entire incident.’ 
In a bizarre twist, it was then revealed that then-married Skoglund fabricated her assault in an attempt to get a free STD test after she had a one night stand. 
‘She had consensual sexual intercourse with an individual in Hillsborough County,’ prosecutor Jessica Couvertier said in court, FOX 13 reported. 
‘Then she felt guilty about it because of her marital status, and she wanted to get checked out for a sexually transmitted disease.’ 

Tripped by a rope. Skoglund’s lies were exposed after police suspicious of her specific description of the type of rope used by her rapist, one that police knew was sold at a local Walmart

Skoglund was arrested and charged  in Sioux Falls on March 10 with misuse of a 911 system, false report of a crime and fabricating physical evidence.
Skoglund ultimately pled guilty to the shocking scheme in which she falsified a rape report in Florida in an attempt to obtain a free STD test after she’d cheated on her husband

She now owes a total of $17,245.26 to the local sheriff’s office for the money they spent on investigating her claim.
‘This case is truly disheartening,’ Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a press release after Skoglund was charged. 
‘There are far too many victims faced with this type of trauma. This woman took advantage of our 911 emergency line and diverted attention from actual victims who need the viable resources available in these investigative scenarios.’
