Nebraska woman found guilty of false report
Nebraska woman found guilty of false report.
Charlie Rogers, a lesbian basketball player, carved anti-gay slurs in herself, and claimed she was the victim of a homophobic attack. "Police believe she faked the attack because she believed it would spark change." The city of Lincoln NE was in the middle of a debate about an ordnance which would have banned discrimination against gays and lesbians, so it is thought she was trying to influence the result.
