BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A former Sacred Heart University
student accused of lying about being raped by two school
football players in Connecticut is set to decide on a plea deal
offer that calls for a two-year prison sentence.

Nikki Yovino, of South Setauket, New York, is scheduled to
appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on Monday to tell a judge
her decision on prosecutors’ plea offer.

Yovino’s lawyer has said she stands by her account that the two
football players at the Fairfield school sexually assaulted her
in a bathroom during an off-campus party in October. The players
told police they had consensual sex with her.

Police allege Yovino lied because she worried a third student
would lose romantic interest in her if he found out she had sex
with the football players.
