SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) -- A woman accused of lying to Denison Police about being raped appeared in court on Thursday.

Breana Harmon is charged with tampering with evidence and government documents. Investigators said Harmon fabricated a story about being kidnapped from her apartment and raped by three black men.

Harmon's claim in March 2017 generated international attention for Denison. In a statement police released in March 2017, Denison Police Chief Jay Burch stated Harmon's hoax was, "insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community due to her description of the so-called suspects in her hoax. The anger and hurts caused from such a hoax are difficult and all so unnecessary."

No action was taken in court, and Harmon is set to appear in court again in March.
