BX man falsely accused of rape settles out of court

One of three Bronx men falsely accused of rape in 2009 has reportedly settled out of court with authorities on Long Island.

Former Hofstra University student Rondell Bedward, 24, was arrested for allegedly tying up a female student and raping her inside a dorm bathroom, but the woman confessed days later that the sex was consensual.

According to Newsday, Bedward has settled a lawsuit with the Nassau County District Attorney's Office and Nassau police. The terms were not disclosed.
