A woman who cut herself in an attempt to get her boyfriend in trouble has been ordered to serve 60 days in jail for lying to officers.The woman, Brittany Abigail Rollins, 22, of Estill Springs entered a guilty plea before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of perjury. She was directed to serve 60 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence. She will be required to pay $637 in court costs.Rollins’ jail time comes after she called 911 claiming her boyfriend, Jonothan Thomison, had assaulted and cut her at a home on Orchard Lane.“She stated she had been slapped in the face, kicked in the chest and ribs, and cut on the head with a knife,” recalled sheriff’s investigator Steven Carpenter of his conversation with the Rollins as she was being treated by ambulance personnel.However, during his investigation, a witness stepped forward and told him they had seen Rollins put something under a tree in the backyard before officers arrived.“When deputies looked, they found a razor blade under the tree,” Carpenter said.The investigator said Rollins changed her tune once she was confronted with the evidence they found under the tree.“She changed her story and stated Mr. Rollins had cut her with a razor after hitting her and then left for work,” Carpenter noted.However, once again the witness challenged Rollins’ version of events, saying there was no altercation before Rollins left for work.“There were no marks on her head other than the cuts on her head to corroborate her story,” Carpenter said, noting Rollins claimed, upon further questioning, she had hidden the razor because she didn’t want her boyfriend to get in trouble.
