A southeast Nebraska woman accused of lying about being raped by four men has made a plea deal with prosecutors.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jennifer Valenta, of Wilber, was convicted on Wednesday. She pleaded no contest to evidence tampering, false reporting and attempted prostitution.

Prosecutors dropped charges of prostitution, perjury and obstructing government operations in exchange for her plea in Gage County District Court.

Prosecutors say Valenta lied about being raped by four men at the Big Indian Recreation Area in southern Gage County last November.

Her sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 2.
