No jail for woman after fake abuse claims

After a doctor revealed that Makaela Bacon’s injuries were inconsistent with her claims that she was suffocated and unconscious, the 19-year-old doubled.

After breaking up with a man she briefly dated, the Melbourne woman claimed that in addition to trying to strangle her, she pushed her down a flight of stairs.

She claimed she did a somersault and hit her head, but was not injured.

A CT scan of the neck showed a normal result with no apparent injury, while photos of the marks on the neck were inconsistent with bruises from a strangulation attempt.

But he signed a second, more detailed statement describing the apparent attack.

The police have issued a domestic violence intervention order to protect her from the man and their lies have increased.

On Tuesday, the 21-year-old escaped jail and was sentenced to an 18-month court order requiring mental health treatment after admitting five counts of perjury.

He claims to feel “the worst person in the world” because of his actions.

Bacon went back to the police several times to make statements about the man, saying he violated the intervention order by sending him threatening messages.

One message said “You deserved to die that day”, while another said “I’ll slit your throat and stab you.”

Police arrested the man but began to suspect the messages weren’t real when they found no evidence on his phone.

Bacon’s phone was taken for analysis and the images were found saved in a folder called “fake messages”.

Despite knowing that his phone records had been searched, Bacon continued to double down with further reports to the police.

She told police that the man sent her pictures of his home and a knife with a message saying “Murder weapon. You are not safe”.

Bacon was arrested and admitted the messages were fake.

He claimed the initial allegations were true and he believed that if the police believed he had broken the court order, his case would be taken more seriously.

Bacon has a history of mental illness, including hallucinations and the belief that someone has implanted him with a chip.

Bacon’s victim was never charged with anything, but the investigation must have been stressful and cause for concern for him, County Court Judge Peter Rozen said.

She ordered that she be monitored for 18 months, evaluated and received any recommended mental health treatment and counseling as part of her sentence.
