OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City woman has been charged for making a false report of sexual assault against embattled police officer Daniel Holtzclaw.

The DA charged 26-year-old Sheneice Barksdale with one felony count of False Report of a Crime Committed after looking into a report she gave police back in late August 2014.

In that report, Barksdale alleged that she encountered Holtzclaw in March 2014. Investigators became suspicious after Barksdale's description of Holtzclaw differed greatly from his actual height and weight.

A check of Holtzclaw's GPS location the day of the alleged assault also revealed he was never in the area Barksdale claimed.

After being confronted with the evidence, Barksdale admitted to police that she made up the story. She told police she was news coverage of Holtzclaw's alleged assault of other women and made up her story to “help” the case.

No other information has been released about this case at this time.

Holtzclaw has been in and out of court, and in and out of jail since the summer 2014. He has been charged with multiple felony sex crimes against women in his patrol area. He faces a total of 35 felony counts and one misdemeanor.
