BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A former Connecticut college student
charged with lying about being raped by two university football
players has lost a bid to obtain their school records.
The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/2HStqdM) a state
judge in Bridgeport on Wednesday denied the records request by
former Sacred Heart University student Nikki Yovino.

Lawyers for Yovino, of South Setauket, New York, say the
documents may contain information from another woman who alleged
she was groped by one of the same two players the same night
Yovino alleges she was raped in 2016. They now intend to
subpoena the documents.
Police say Yovino admitted lying because she worried the sexual
encounter would damage her relationship with another student.
