Felony charges follow rape allegations
Police say a woman tried to avoid jail by accusing an officer of assaulting her.
Allisa J. Guyette, 23, Weyauwega, is charged with felony accusing of a crime, felony stalking, defamation of character and obstructing an officer.
On Aug. 22, 2016, Guyette was convicted of obstructing an officer and placed on one year of probation with the condition that she not possess any prescription drugs without a valid prescription.
She had initially been charged with possession of heroin and drug trafficking. The heroin charge was dropped by the prosecutor while the drug trafficking charge was dismissed but read into the court record for sentencing purposes.
Guyette reported the alleged sexual assault to Wisconsin State Trooper Kendi Linjer while she was being transported to the Waupaca County jail.
Guyette’s probation agent had just placed a probation hold on her.
After arriving at the jail, Linjer questioned Guyette about the assault, then reported it to Capt. Don Conat, who reported it to Chief Deputy Al Kraeger.
On Oct. 13, Detective Scott Johnston, with the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office, opened an investigation and questioned Guyette at the jail.
“Guyette advised me she in the past was addicted to heroin,” Johnston reported. “When I was talking to Guyette she was somewhat drowsy and sleepy.”
According to the criminal complaint, Guyette told Johnston she took approximately 2,000 mg of Gabapentin throughout the prior day.
Guyette told Johnston the officer called her the previous night and asked if she wanted to go for a ride.
She said they drove around, stopped and had sex in the back seat of her car. She said it was not their first sexual encounter and estimated they had sex about 20 times.
At first, the sex was consensual, but it then became rough, Guyette said. She said she told the officer to stop, but he would not.
Guyette told Johnston she had not showered or changed her clothes since having sex with the officer. A sexual assault nurse conducted an examination.
Guyette also told Johnston there were a black sweatshirt and blue jeans in her bedroom that belonged to the officer.
The DNA samples taken from Guyette excluded the officer as a contributor and the jeans did not fit him, the complaint says.
Johnston interviewed Guyette again on Oct. 17 and described the problems with her story.
When he asked if her allegations were false, “Guyette put her head down and stated they were not true, she made the entire story up.”
Guyette told Johnston that after she learned she was being placed on a probation hold, she thought if she made up this incident, she would not have to go to jail.
