Police say woman, daughter lied about attack

Staff report

The Livingston County Sheriff's Department charged two Ledbetter women with falsely reporting an incident, according to a news release.

Shere Ferrell, 49, and Tesla Ferrell, 22, were charged regarding allegations made about 4:30 a.m. Jan. 18.

According to the release, Shere Farrell told authorities that daughter Toni Ferrell had unlawfully entered her home and struck her numerous times with a baseball bat. The mother also claimed her daughter assaulted a 4-year-old child while there.

Tesla Ferrell, who is also Shere Farrell's daughter, was present and confirmed her mother's statement. Toni Ferrell and a man named Justin Ellis were charged with first-degree burglary and fourth-degree assault based on the report.

All charges against Toni Ferrell and Ellis have been dismissed, and Shere Farrell and Tesla Farrell will appear in Livingston District Court on Feb. 27. 

The news release, sent by Livingston County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Devin Brewer, said members of law enforcement take falsely reporting an incident very seriously, and called it a "needless drain on resources that are already stretched thin in most rural communities."
