On March 8, 2023, State Police of Fonda arrested Gina L. Emden, 34, of Ephratah, NY, for Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third Degree.
On February 14, 2023, at about 9:32 p.m. State Police responded to a home in Ephratah, NY, for the reports of a domestic dispute. During the investigation, Emden made allegations that an adult known to her was sexually abusing children. Following a thorough investigation with the assistance of the Fulton County Child Protective Services, no indication of abuse was identified. It was determined that Emden allegations were knowingly baseless, and she later attempted to withdraw the report.
Emden was arrested and processed at SP Mayfield. She was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the Mayfield Town Court on March 28, 2023, and released.
