LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska woman who claimed she was attacked by men who carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and stomach has pleaded no contest to making a false report.
Charlie Rogers was found guilty Monday in Lincoln after entering the plea, which allowed her to not admit guilt but state she wouldn't offer a defense.
Her attorney says Rogers maintains her innocence but didn't want a court fight. The 34-year-old could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine when sentenced in February.
The former University of Nebraska-Lincoln basketball star was charged a month after telling police in July that three masked men broke into her home, assaulted her and carved derogatory words into her body.
Police believe she faked the attack thinking it would spark change.
