Heidi L Glick, 31, of Portland was charged by Lewis County for malicious prosecution after accusing Steven W. Flournoy Jr. of rape. Glick and Flournoy met after Glick advertised sexual services on Backpage.com. One of the conditions of Glick’s bail was that she cease advertising on Backpage.
On January 7, Lewis County prosecutor Sheila Weirth accused Glick of violating that condition. Weirth repeated the charge at a hearing on January 14. Judge James Lawler, on the prosecution recommendation, remanded Glick into custody for violating her bail. The judge raised her bail to $50,000.
Glick first contacted the police on November 7, 2015, claiming that Flournoy raped her. She later changed her statement that he refused to pay her for sex, which she considered to be rape. Flournoy responded by turning over a recording to police in which Glick threatened that she would make a false accusation of rape against him, if he didn’t pay her.
