Former South Sioux City, NE woman sentenced for faking hate crime

Posted:
LINCOLN, Neb. (KTIV) -

A former South Sioux City, Nebraska woman, who reported being attacked by three men who carved anti-gay slurs into her body, is headed to jail.

Former Nebraska basketball player, Charlie Rogers, was sentenced Thursday to a week in jail and two years of probation.

Authorities charged Rogers after she told police three masked men broke into her Lincoln house and assaulted her.

Police say Rogers faked the attack because she thought it would inspire change in the treatment of gay people.
