Did Pizza Deliveryman Stumble on Rape or Consensual Bondage?

According to the woman's account to police in the report, Jansen pulled up next to her while she was jogging and asked her to come look at his new car. The woman told police she sat down but Jansen then tied her hands down with what she described as "pre-made restraints of rope," according to the report.

The woman told police that Jansen locked her cell phone in the trunk and, once at the cabin, he made her take medication from a paper towel before he cut her clothes off and raped her twice, the documents state.

Deputies reported finding clothing in the bedroom and bathroom that appeared to have been cut or ripped. The report states that deputies found rope tied to the headboard and footboard of the bed and that the woman had a small scrape and a scratch on her face.

The car Jansen used, according to the police report, was a rental that had rope tied around the headrest on the passenger seat.

Jansen was charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape. He was released after posting $800,000 bond, according to McCarter.

But Georgia police said the woman has a history with law enforcement, including two prior claims of rape that were later determined to be false.

False Claims About Rapes, Stabbing Shed Doubt on Accuser

Hunton told ABCNews.com that the woman twice called police in August 2005, saying she had been kidnapped from her apartment by two Hispanic men and taken behind a Kohl's store and raped.

"Once her story quickly unraveled, the short version is the evidence didn't match what she was saying," Hunton said. "She eventually admitted that she made the allegation up."

Hunton said she pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation and community service.

The woman could not be reached by phone or e-mail by ABCNews.com.

But while investigating the woman's story, Hunton said they turned up an arrest from Henry County in 2004 where she had made very similar claims that turned out to be false -- that she was kidnapped and raped by Hispanic men. Hunton said she was never charged in that incident.

And in Fannin County, Hunton said the woman pleaded guilty to another count of making a false report after claiming she had been stabbed.

In addition to the false claims, Hunton said she has been involved in numerous other calls to 911 in Cherokee County alone, including asking for an ambulance for an unkown illness and a suicide call in December 2005.

Bosch said in his statement, "We are preparing a motion for filing that will address this and a number of other relevant issues related to our client's bond status and innocence."

'Not the Person She Knew'

Guilty or innocent, the ordeal has taken a toll on more than Jansen and his accuser.

On Friday, the day after Jansen was released from jail, his wife of 24 years filed for divorce and has taken their adult children into hiding.

Christy Jansen's attorney, Margaret Washburn, told ABCNews.com that the divorce filing was a direct result of her husband's arrest.

"She said this was just not the person she knew," Washburn said, adding that before the trip to the cabin, Jansen had told his wife he was going on a business trip, and told his office that he was away for a family vacation. "Consensual or not, rape or not, he's still out with another woman."

Washburn said the couple had been dating since they were 13-year-old middle schoolers and had a daughter, 18, who just graduated from high school and a 22-year-old son.
