Lincoln woman sentenced in false attack

Posted: 04/19/13 09:21

A judge has given jail time and probation to a Lincoln woman who reported being attacked by three men who carved anti-gay slurs into her body. On Thursday Judge Gale Pokorny sentenced former Nebraska basketball player Charlie Rogers to a week in jail starting April 29th and two years of probation. Pokorny says evidence shows Rogers' report was a lie. Rogers was convicted in December. Authorities charged Rogers after she told police in July that three masked men broke into her Lincoln house and assaulted her. A neighbor told police that Rogers crawled from her home naked, bleeding and screaming for help. Police say Rogers faked the attack because she thought it would inspire change in the treatment of gay people.
