Neb. woman who says she was attacked, slurs carved into her body pleads to filing false report

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 entered the plea Monday in Lincoln. It allows the 34-year-old to not admit guilt but acknowledge that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict her.

She could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine when sentenced in February

Her attorney says Rogers maintains her innocence but didn't want a court fight.

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 because she thought it would spark change.
