MISHWAKA – A former Goshen College student, who told her mom she’d been kidnapped and raped as an excuse for being late, received her sentence today.

Jessica De La Vega will have to spend a year and a half on probation and perform 200 hours of community service for her conviction of obstructing justice. A year-and-a-half of prison time was suspended.

De La Vega told police back in January she had been abducted and raped in a Goshen park, leading police to circulate a sketch of a suspect.
