King University Student Charged With Fabricating Sexual Assault By A Law Enforcement Officer
A 21 year old female student at King University in Bristol is charged with giving a false report to a law enforcement officer after she told authorities she had been sexually assaulted by a law enforcement officer, or a person impersonating a law enforcement officer. 21 year old Dyanie Bermeo also made the report to university officials who then distributed a safety bulletin to their students. The Washington County Virginia Sheriff’s Department began an investigation after considering the dangerous nature of the report and determined Bermeo lacked validity and appeared to have fabricated the report, which she later admitted to. Bermeo is charged with a class one misdemeanor for false reporting to law enforcement.
