LINCOLN A judge has dismissed a change of venue request by a woman charged with making up a gay hate crime.

Charlie Rogers filed a motion Nov. 16 seeking to move the location of her trial on a misdemeanor charge of false reporting. On Wednesday, her attorney, Brett McArthur, withdrew the motion.

Lancaster County Judge Gale Pokorny dismissed it with prejudice, meaning it cannot be filed a second time.

The written motion argued that Rogers would not be able to seat an impartial jury because of pervasive news coverage of the case.

1. Reich-wingers are at work again destroying the rights of hate-crime victims

This further proves that those fundie scumbags will do anything to marginalize and mistreat members of the LGBT community at every opportunity.

Shame on them.

3. What hate crime?

She did this to herself and then filed a false police report.

2. Good.

 

Screw her.

Her little show now makes other victims of REAL attacks look suspect, and has given ammo to assholes everywhere when denigrating gays and lesbians. She should serve her time and be made to pay back the community for the costs spent on finding the "Perpetrators".
