    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A former Connecticut college student
    accused of lying about being raped by two university football
    players has been denied a pretrial probation program.

    The Connecticut Post reports Superior Court Judge Maureen Dennis
    on Friday rejected accelerated rehabilitation for former Sacred
    Heart University student Nikki Yovino. If successfully
    completed, the program would have led to a dismissal of the
    charges without requiring a guilty plea.

    Dennis says Yovino’s alleged false report is “lethal to all true

    The 19-year-old South Setauket, New York native accused two
    Sacred Heart football players of sexually assaulting her during
    an October party. The players said the sex was consensual.
    Police say Yovino later admitted making up the allegations.

    Yovino’s lawyer said Friday she’s “sorry it happened,” but says
    that is “not a guilty plea in any way.”
