Jody Mary Ryan from Fort Myers, Florida, hoped to cover her tracks and appease her angry husband by telling police her lover – her husband’s best friend – had raped her.
Jody Mary Ryan, 18, is the one in jail, arrested on a charge of making a false police report, after investigators discovered her sex assault claims were bogus, cops said.
Jody Mary Ryan later confessed her husband, Mahmoud Koush, 27, put her up to making the phony claims when he found out about the extra-marital tryst. It was his way of getting back at his adulterous pal.
Police say Mahmoud Koush called cops and reported his friend had touched his wife inappropriately.
When police and paramedics arrived at Jody Mary Ryan’s house, she told officers the man had raped her and that she didn’t want her husband to find out.
The woman claimed her husband’s best friend had forced himself on her at a hotel in Fort Myers.
But staff at the hotel said she seemed perfectly amicable when the pair rented a room there.
And nurses who examined Jody Mary Ryan for signs of sexual assault at Gulf Coast Hospital said she never made any comments about being raped.
The woman was only concerned about whether she was pregnant, police said.
And then there was the surveillance video.
Cops say video footage shows Jody Mary Ryan showing up at her lover’s workplace and throwing a ring he gave her because she was upset her husband found out.
When cops confronted her, Jody Mary Ryan admitted that Mahmoud Koush had put her up to the phony rape claims.
Jody Mary Ryan said Mahmoud Koush found out about the two-week affair between the couple and was furious.
