Sentencing Delayed for Woman Convicted of Faking Hate Crime

By  | 

A judge has again delayed the sentencing of a Nebraska woman who pleaded no contest to faking an anti-gay hate crime.

Court documents show Charlie Rogers now faces sentencing on April 18 instead of March 14 in Lancaster County Court. Her original sentencing date was next Thursday.

Rogers, a former University of Nebraska basketball player, had reported being attacked by three men who carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and stomach. She later was charged with filing a false report, a misdemeanor.

The alleged crime gained local and national attention shortly after it happened.

Rogers maintains her innocence, but her attorney has said Rogers doesn't want a court fight.

The 34-year-old Rogers faces up to a year in jail.
