The New York woman who falsely accused two college football players of raping her casually rolled her eyes during her sentencing Thursday.
Police say the lies stem from a party in October of 2016.
Nineteen-year-old Nikki Yovino, who attended Sacred Heart University, told investigators two football players from the school raped her in a bathroom at an off-campus party.
Taking a plea deal, Yovino admitted the sex was consensual and the rape was a lie. A lie which she made up for fear of losing a potential boyfriend who knew she'd been with the players.
The athlete's lost their scholarships and their chance to play.
"I went from being a college student to sitting at home, expelled, with no classes, no information and no opportunity to clear my name," said Malik St. Hilaire, one of the victims. "I hope that she knows what she's done and the fact that my life will never be the same."
The plea deal makes sure Yovino stays in jail for one year, and the attorney for these athletes say they might be thinking about suing for monetary damages.
