False accusations result in arrest of Rockville woman

Saturday, June 11, 2011

ROCKVILLE -- Detectives from the Indiana State Police Post at Putnamville have arrested a Rockville woman for allegedly making false allegations of a sexual nature against a Clinton man.

The arrest comes after a seven-day investigation by ISP detectives, and the subsequent issuing of a Hendricks County arrest warrant.

Katrina L. Podsiadlik, 45, Rockville, was taken into custody at 10 a.m. Friday by State Police detectives and troopers at the home of a male friend in Rockville.

She was incarcerated in the Parke County Jail on one count of false reporting, a Class A misdemeanor, with bond set at $500.

The investigation began June 3 when the suspect's boyfriend contacted the Vermillion and Parke county sheriff's offices, reporting what he assumed was a valid crime committed against his girlfriend, Katrina L. Podsiadlik. ISP detectives were then contacted because of multi-jurisdictional issues.

On June 3, State Police detectives met with Podsiadlik at the Danville Police Department because she had sought medical treatment at a Hendricks County medical facility and agreed to meet detectives at the nearby police department. Once there, Podsiadlik allegedly told detectives that a male acquaintance had forced her to succumb to his sexual advances at his Fairview (Vermillion County) residence during the early morning hours of June 3.

Podsiadlik claimed she had given the male friend a ride home from nearby Clinton after he had been drinking. After arriving at his residence, she claimed the male friend forced her to have sexual relations with the threat of bodily harm if she did not comply.

After completing the investigation, ISP detectives determined the allegations against the Vermillion County man were false.

A warrant for the arrest of Podsiadlik was issued by Hendricks County Superior Court 1 because the false allegations were made to detectives in Hendricks County, not in Parke or Vermillion counties.

The case was investigated by ISP Detectives First Sgt. Jeff Hearon and Det. Sam Stearley. They were assisted by ISP troopers and the Parke County Sheriff's Office.

What about what is going on right here in Greencastle with an appointed County official. I haven't read one word about that. Why don't you call the Prosecutor and get the scoop on that. I am sure the Voter's of Putnam County would like to know why this man is allowed to keep his position with the County and why the Commissioner's are allowing it. I can see anyone making a mistake once, but there is a pattern here and this person is more of a liability than anything.

How come you didn't do a follow up on this woman and what she got for false report on a Rape? in June of 2010..If you look she was tried after many postponements on Jan 28th I think all you have to do is look up the public records...I would think you would want women that report a false rape what happens to them? If it were the other way around you would sure do a follow up on the Man..this woman is danger!!! to all Men and they should be informed. about women like this maybe use her as a example for false rape ??...
