Nebraska Lesbian Sentenced for Faking Horrific Hate Crime: VIDEO


Charlie Rogers, the Lincoln, Nebraska lesbian who was found guilty of faking a hate crime for claiming she was attacked by three men who broke into her home and carved "dyke" into her stomach before setting her house ablaze, was sentenced to a week in jail and two years on probation by a Lancaster County judge yesterday.

The Journal Star reports:

Lancaster County Judge Gale Pokorny on Thursday morning also ordered the 34-year-old to do 250 hours of community service for lying to police when she told investigators three men broke into her house, tied her up, carved anti-gay slurs into her skin and tried to light the house on fire.

“The evidence is overwhelming that Charlie Rogers’ narrative of July 22, 2012, was an incredible and outrageous lie the second it passed her lips,” Pokorny said.

Rogers will start her jail sentence April 29. She could do another 90 days behind bars in 2015 if she does not complete probation. Pokorny also ordered her to take a comprehensive psychiatric exam and give her probation officer access to all her medical records.

Rogers had faced up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

  1. good. justice.

    here's hoping similar results happen with that gay republican in wisconsin who insisted that some "liberal" came into his home and attacked him.

    didn't happen, either.

  2. If someone stages a crime why is it still "horrific"? I knew it was phony from the beginning. A homophobe would have used "D-I-K-E" if they were to even use that term at all.

  6. I read more details on another site. Her Facebook of course doomed her with her "just you wait to see what I do!" entries. Why do morons ALWAYS think Facebook is like talking to someone on the telephone and not for the world to see or discover? I understand in most divorce proceedings it's where lawyers begin these days.

  7. @mike That's funny, you sound extremely unintelligent yet you were able to spell "mike" right. Oh wait, there is no capital 'i' in your name. I'll still call complete BS on your profiling by typographical theory. I had a hunch she faked it because she just didn't look or act sincere. The best thing now is that this dummy has her own attention-seeking stupidity carved into abdomen. What's carved into yours?

  8. One week in jail and then 2 years probation? Does anyone else find this a very strange sentence?

  9. Good. She should have gotten a longer sentence but living with this on her record may be enough. Idiot.

  13. Bollucks, why not do a search on lesbian hate crimes and how many times "dyke" comes up. I'm glad an idiot who goes on "sincerity" wasn't on the jury or the judge here. A better phony would have had you convinced.
