A Nebraska woman who claimed she was attacked by men who carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and stomach has pleaded no contest to making a false report. Charlie Rogers was found guilty Monday in Lincoln after entering the plea, which allowed her to not admit guilt but state she wouldn't offer a defense. Her attorney says Rogers maintains her innocence but didn't want a court fight. The 34-year-old could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine when sentenced in February.
