Rape is a serious issue in this country, especially around college campuses. We've definitely heard the stories, such as the scandal with the Baylor football program recently.

However, there also seems to be an issue with people getting falsely accused of rape and then getting in trouble for it. We've seen it before with guys like Brian Banks.

It looks like that happened to these two college football players, who were falsely accused of rape by an 18-year-old. Her reason for doing so is extremely dumb and selfish.

It caused the two players to get suspended from the team and lose their scholarships, which forced them to leave school.

From the New York Times:
An 18-year-old woman from New York was hit with charges after authorities say she falsely accused two Connecticut football players of rape.

Nikki Yovino had claimed she was pulled into a bathroom by two Sacred Heart students during a football party in Bridgeport. However, a student overheard Yovino telling the two of them that she wanted to have sex with them, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by the Connecticut Post.

When pressed by cops, she said she lied because of her potential interest in another man, according to authorities.

“She admitted that she made up the allegation of sexual assault against (the football players) because it was the first thing that came to mind and she didn’t want to lose (another male student) as a friend and potential boyfriend,” read the affidavit obtained by the newspaper. “She stated that she believed when (the other male student) heard the allegation it would make him angry and sympathetic to her.”
Yovino faces five years in prison if charged. Hopefully the justice system makes the right decision.
