The city of Lynnwood will pay a woman $150,000 to settle a lawsuit she filed after police charged her with a false report because they didn't believe she had been raped.

It turns out the woman was a victim of serial rapist Marc O'Leary who admitted the 2008 crime and is serving a 327-year sentence in Colorado for raping three women there.

The Seattle Times reports police didn't believe the Lynnwood woman and forced her to recant. She was threatened with eviction unless she underwent counseling and said she had lied about being raped.
