Woman in false rape case says she never said she was raped

May 17, 2018 - 5:35 AM

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - A New York woman charged with lying about being raped by two college football players now says she never told investigators she was sexually assaulted.

Nikki Yovino, of South Setauket, New York, was in a Connecticut court Wednesday for a hearing on the defence's motion to keep her alleged confession that she made up the rape allegation out of trial.

The Connecticut Post reports a prosecutor appeared surprised when the former Sacred Heart University student said she never told police she was sexually assaulted. She testified she told police "something happened in the bathroom at the party with these two guys that I didn't want to happen."

Yovino said two Sacred Heart football players raped her in 2016. The players said the encounter was consensual.

Yovino is charged with falsely reporting an incident.
