Texas Teen Faces 10 Years In Prison For Lying About Being Raped By Three Black Men

The 19-year-old told authorities she lied because she didn't want her mother to know she cut herself

A Texas teen faces up 10 years in prison for lying back in March about being kidnapped and raped by two black men while another one held her down.

Breana Harmon, 19, initially told law enforcement she'd be taken into the woods by three men wearing ski masks, and also alleged the assailants would sexually assault her again if she told anyone.

Harmon then ran to a nearby church in just her T-shirt, bra an underwear. However the cuts in Harmon's jeans did not match the cuts on her leg and a nurse did not see any signs of sexual assault after testing Harmon.

Later on in the month, Harmon fessed up and told the Denison, Texas department that "things from her past started going through her head," and then she began cutting herself and her jeans. Afraid of telling her parents ,she lied about the entire encounter.

According to reports, Harmon's fiance Samuel Hollingsworth, gave her pepper spray and a pocket knife the day of the made up encounter. However Hollingsworth has distanced himself from Harmon since it's been reported she lied about being raped.

"Really, all I can say is I don't want any involvement with her at all," he told the Herald Democrat. “I just want to move on with my life. That part of my life is dead to me."

After initially only receiving a misdemeanor charge, Harmon this week was also charged with a felony. She's charged with tampering with physical evidence and tampering with government record. Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said in a statement the upped charges suits the crime and the punishment that could've befell three innocent men.

"The more we have looked at what happened in this case, and considered the harm it caused, and certainly could have caused, we believe what she did fits these higher charges," Brown said. "What she did was very serious, and we believe it was felony conduct."

‘Black Panther’ Sequel Will Reportedly Begin Filming In Atlanta Next Year

Filming on the highly anticipated sequel to Black Panther is set to begin next summer. Marvel Studios will start shooting the Ryan Coogler-directed sequel in July 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The series are the priority, “ a source told THR of Marvel’s film strategy going into next year. “Ramping them up takes a lot of focus. The movie machinery is well established.”

The shoot will last at least six months. Princess Shuri, the character played by Letitia Wright, who plays King T’Challa's sister Princess Shuri, could take on an expanded role given the death of Chadwick Boseman.

Narcos: Mexico actor Tenoch Huerta will reportedly join the cast, while Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett and Windsor Duke are also expected to return for the second installment of the Marvel film.

In September, Black Panther’s executive producer Victoria Alonso denied rumors that Boseman would appear in the film via CGI technology. “There's only one Chadwick, and he's not with us,” Alonso said. “Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to the story and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, in reality.”

Boseman, 43, passed away from colon cancer in August.

In honor of Pink Friday, Minaj hosted another Q&A answering everything from her favorite song to perform off the album (“Roman's Revenge,” “Did it On ‘Em” and “Save Me”) to what she admires most about her artistic growth over the last decade (“I admire the inner peace I found,” she tweeted.)

The verse continues, “I don't want you on the bench, believe you wouldn't've been invited. And if it weren’t for me, same week, you would have been indicted (should’ve let them lock your a** up).”

“You shot a 5’10” b*tch with a .22 Talkin ‘bout bones and tendons like them bullets wasn’t pellets,” she continues. “A p*ssy n*gga with a p*ssy gun in his feelings.”

Lanez pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the shooting. He faces more than 22 years in prison if convicted.

As for Good News, the album is packed with features including City Girls, Beyoncé, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Da Baby, and Young Thug.
