Back in May we told you the story of Meg Lanker-Simons, a liberal student activist at the University of Wyoming who used Facebook to perpetrate a rape hoax.

Now, Eric Owens of The Daily Caller has an update.

Wyoming ‘hate-f***’ hoaxer adds to checkered criminal past, now attends law school

The latest criminal saga involving former University of Wyoming student Meghan Lanker-Simons has come to an end not with a bang, but with a whimper.

Lanker-Simons announced her intention to plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with a peace officer, reports the Laramie Boomerang.

In exchange for the plea, the strident leftist will receive a “minimal” fine and no prison sentence. The maximum penalty would have been a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

The charge relates to a social media hoax police say Lanker-Simons perpetrated back in April by authoring an unsigned posting on a Facebook page called UW Crushes reading:

“I want to hatefuck Meg Lanker Simons so hard. That chick runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its so hot and makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch.”

The posting brought national attention. There was an angry rally. Initially, the administration stood firmly behind Lanker-Simons. A school official denounced “rape culture.”

Before she was charged, Lanker-Simons hit the feminist warpath. “They’re treating this like there’s someone harboring violent sexual fantasies towards fellow students, and has stated a desire to act upon them,” she wrote on her blog. “Now, I know having the fantasies is not a crime—voicing them to threaten and intimidate, well, possibly a different story there.”

However, when police investigated the incident, they quickly determined that Lanker-Simons posted the message on her computer while it was in her possession. Police say this ham-handed obstruction of the investigation led to the charge against her…

Lanker-Simons, 28, can now go on her merry way to the law school that accepted her. The Boomerang refused to identify this law school, noting only its location in a western state.
