It’s funny how some women go to the very extreme of blackmailing men on the grounds of sexual assault and rape, this is a common problem that we see in nearly all societies. This deceptive trick hardly worked for a Plains Township woman who attempted to pull it on a state trooper; however, it didn’t work-out as planned.

The phony woman will answer to the charges next week. Identified as Christine A. Cromer, 37, she was charged with two counts of making false reports to law enforcement after claiming that she was raped by Trooper Robert Covington in a State Police cruiser. Fortunately, the authorities managed to find numerous inconsistencies in her allegations.

An affidavit indicates that back in May 2017, Cromer claimed she and Covington had engaged in a sexual relationship, having had intercourse in August 2016 in a cruiser at the Mohegan Sun Pocono casino, where Cromer was working as a cocktail waitress. Covington was assigned through the Bureau of Gaming to duty at the casino, where he had worked since 2014.

She alleged that their relationship started when Covington told her he would help her get away from her husband, who she claims were involved in the Outlaw motorcycle gang. She claimed that Covington provided her with a phone to communicate directly with her, strangely, she could not provide the phone number

She went ahead to claim that Covington raped her in November 2016. Cromer claimed that she was raped across the front seat of the vehicle, in a bench-style seat that went across the whole front. She also said the car had a “normal radio.” But the interior of the car she claimed she was raped in had a large center console with a radio that separated the front seat into two halves.

After being shown a picture of the vehicle, she was quick to claim that troopers had changed the inside of the vehicle to protect Covington. Back in June 28, 2017, Cromer attempted to identify the trooper who raped her to a Luzerne County detective; however, she identified another trooper wearing makeup. The preliminary hearing for Cromer is scheduled for Nov. 22.
