Why is it that women make false allegations (making them sound vindictive and malicious) but men frame people (which sounds like they need intelligence and talent)?
Sumasar was sprung last week, and yesterday, her conniving ex, Jerry Ramrattan, was charged as the mastermind of a stunning scheme. He was desperate to get her to drop the sex attack charges she filed in September 2009 after the two split up, officials said. So he paid two pals to concoct the armed robbery lies, authorities say.
Sumasar said cops thought she was crazy when she proclaimed her innocence and recounted the months of hell the spurned Ramrattan put her through.
“They acted like I’m just trying to blame somebody else for something I did,” Sumasar told reporters. “They did not want to look at it at all.”
She suspects he filed a series of anonymous complaints that prompted health and building inspectors to descended on her Golden Crust bakeshop.
Once she landed in jail, the business went under and her home is now threatened with foreclosure. The most painful part was being away from her 12-year-old daughter, Chiara.

Sumasar and her lawyer call it all a miscarriage of justice.
They complain that investigators refused to check out her alibi that she was at a Connecticut casino when one of the armed robberies supposedly happened.
“Everybody looked at me as a drama queen, like I’m giving them a Lifetime movie story,” she said.
Sumasar, who spent a decade working on Wall Street before launching her own business, had never been in jail before.
“I did everything I could to keep my mind from going crazy,” she said. “I was praying somebody’s going to listen.”
