Iona student who went missing last month is now in trouble with the law

The Iona student who went missing for three weeks is now in trouble with the law.

Danielle McGuinn, who disappeared back in October from Iona College and was last seen in NJ, is now being charged with filing a false police report.

The charge stems from what the 21-year-old told Boulder, Colorado police on the day she was found in that area. When McGuinn was found in Colorado, she apparently told police there that she was sexually assaulted by a truck driver on the Jersey Turnpike the night she disappeared.

McGuinn later filed a report in NJ about the alleged assault. But NJ state police say after she was interviewed and administered a lie detector test, she caved in and admitted that she made up the story.
