“College Student Pleads Guilty To Slashing Her Own Face, Making Up Post-Election ‘Hate Crime,’” by Peter Hasson, Daily Caller, March 8, 2017:

“I had been in a discussion in my women’s lit weirdly and there were a few people in my class that sort of said some things that scared me,” Bass said. She claims she was “suffering from depression at the time.”

The charge of falsely reporting a misdemeanor carries with it up to 93 days in jail, a $500 fine or both, according to the Michigan Daily. Because of her depressed state at the time, Bass’s lawyers are requesting she be sentenced in mental health court….
