Nikki Yovino, Who Accused Two Sacred Heart Football Players of Rape for a Year, Admits In Court It Was All Just a Vicious Lie

What I'd like to see is a probe into her motivation for this, and her psychology. It would be a good thing to know for future cases.

What exactly is it that is spurring young women to contrive the most vicious lies and slurs imaginable? Shouldn't police and psychologists be interested in discovering if there is any pattern or cluster of psychological inclinations that link false accusers?

But I expect no research into this obviously-important question. Down the memory hole with WrongFacts.

A young Long Island woman who spent over a year insisting that she was raped by two Sacred Heart University football players officially admitted in court Tuesday that she's been lying the entire time.

Nikki Yovino, 19, pleaded guilty to charges of falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police, according to the Connecticut Post.

The former college student reportedly accepted a plea deal, and will now serve a reduced sentence of one year in prison. She had been facing six.

...

While both men admitted to sleeping with her, they claimed that the sex was completely consensual. Their lawyer, Frank Riccio II, told the CT Post on Tuesday that they are now thinking about suing Yovino for all the trouble she put them through.

“While this disposition does not replace that which the boys lost, it does send a powerful message that lying about a serious incident carries serious consequences,” Riccio said.
