Lincoln woman accused of falsely accusing deputy cleared

March 18, 2019

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A jury has cleared a Lincoln woman accused of making false accusations against a former Burleigh County deputy she was living with at the time.

Authorities alleged Natasha Reiger reported last August that Kerry Komrosky had held a gun to her head, threatened her life and physically assaulted her. She also faced a felony drug charge.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that a jury found Reiger not guilty on Friday.

Komrosky last year was sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison for stealing drug evidence from the state crime lab while serving on a narcotics task force. He has appealed to the state Supreme Court.
