    A female student from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut was sentenced to a year in jail this week for falsely accusing two male students of rape. Nikki Yovino, it was revealed, made the accusation because she was worried her consensual experience with the two football players would hurt her relationship with another student.

    ABC News 7 in New York reports:

    Connecticut college student gets 1 year in prison for false rape accusation

    A Long Island woman who falsely accused two Sacred Heart University football players of rape was sentenced in a Connecticut court Thursday.

    Nikki Yovino, of South Setauket, pleaded guilty to making up the allegations and was sentenced to three years in prison. She will only serve one year, though, with the other two suspended as part of the plea agreement.

    She said she made up the allegations in 2016 because she worried her consensual encounter with the two players would damage her relationship with another student.

    Yovino had initially claimed she was raped by the two students in a bathroom during an off-campus party.

    Detectives believed her at first and had witness statements that seemed to corroborate her story, and it appeared the investigation was leading to charging the two students.

    The accused were saved by text messages:

    But then another student came forward and shed light on apparently explicit text messages between Yovino and the two male students, and one of the men had even captured part of the incident on his cell phone.

    According to NBC News in Connecticut, Yovino didn’t seem to take the sentencing proceedings very seriously:

    Woman Sentenced to Jail for False Rape Accusation Rolls Eyes in Court

    A woman appeared to roll her eyes in court several times as she was sentenced to one year in jail for making false rape allegations against two college football players.

    Twenty-year-old Nikki Yovino, who police say had a sexual encounter with two players in Connecticut and later made false rape allegations so she wouldn’t lose a potential boyfriend, was sentenced Thursday in Bridgeport Superior Court.

    She pleaded guilty in June to misdemeanor charges of falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police.

    In the video report below, one of the accused men states that the experience has changed his life forever. He and the other young man, were forced to leave school following the accusation:

    Given that this story doesn’t fit the narrative of campus “rape culture” activists, it will be interesting to see the reaction it provokes, if any.

    Three years in jail, two suspended. What would the young men have received if they were guilty? Eight, ten years? Why isn’t she being sentenced for that? Her false accusation has already cost them, she should have to pay the same price. That should be the price for the false accusation of rape, assault or any other physical attack on another person: you receive the same sentence.

      Well that is pretty easy, the law for rape is not the same for lying.

      Civil court will work it out like it has been for hundreds of years. IMO, the players should be men and take responsibility for their decisions. They screwed up.

    Nice little tidbit here:

    Port Clinton Police detective Corbin Carpenter said less than 20 percent of the cases the department investigates are are considered false reports.

    I watched the Kobe Bryant trial and I thought he was guilty. It’s simple, you are playing with fire when you have sex with someone you don’t know and don’t care about it.

    Its not against the law to stare at the sun either.

      “Port Clinton Police detective Corbin Carpenter said less than 20 percent of the cases the department investigates are are considered false reports”

      Nearly 1 in 5? So much for “rare”. I guess it’s ok to destroy somebody’s life so long as you don’t do it too often.

        It’s not ok. But on the same note, when you are in a small boat on the ocean and a big one comes by, right of way does not mean much.

        Be responsible for your se;f
