Katelyn Webster arrested for false rape claim that cost Matthew Folino his freedom and found him facing 10 years if convicted at trial

Katelyn Webster, 18, of Venetia, PA, has been arrested and charged with making a false claim of rape against Matthew Folino, a young man with no prior history of arrest, whom she’d met only weeks before.

Folino spent months in jail and faced 10 years at trial, having been arrested, charged, and jailed awaiting adjudication, on the basis of Webster’s statements alone.
