    Girl who cried UVa. gang rape pretended to be her rapist to win a boy, lawyers say: Three and a half years after an alleged brutal gang rape by fraternity members at the University of Virginia, detailed in Rolling Stone magazine, lawyers say a crush over a boy sparked the sensational article.

    Three and a half years after an alleged brutal gang rape by fraternity members at the University of Virginia, detailed in Rolling Stone magazine, lawyers say a crush over a boy sparked the sensational article.

    Readers were horrified by "A Rape on Campus" when it published online in November 2014, and the article created upheaval at the university. 

    The 9,000-word article -- with almost as many comments at the time it was taken offline -- described how an UVa first-year student named Jackie was sexually assaulted by seven attackers during a fraternity party, and how the university failed to adequately respond.

    The article, with global attention, instigated dialogue about sexual violence on college campuses, but the details of the story soon came under withering scrutiny and it was later retracted. Multiple lawsuits have been filed since its publication. 

    "I felt like I was going to cry when I saw the article," said UVa student, Ryan Duffin. "I met Jackie the second day I was at UVa."

    It was summer 2012, and like most college freshman, Duffin was excited to meet new friends and make lasting memories.

    He quickly connected with fellow first-year students Jackie, Alex Stock, and Kathyrn Hendley, after meeting the trio at orientation.

    But it was Jackie, Ryan says, who wanted more.

    "I think that began to become pretty clear maybe about a week after I had met her," said Duffin, in an interview with CBS 6 reporter Laura French. "She started expressing some physical interest in me then, which I rebuffed."

    It was a rejection which the lawyers currently representing the UVa associate dean's office said led to deception.

    "She tells us that she's met this new guy," said Alex Stock, who was close friends with Duffin and the others. "She likes to talk about him which I thought was interesting because she had a huge crush on Ryan at the time."

    Jackie told her friends that the new guy was an upperclassman named Haven Monahan.

    Ryan said Jackie even convinced him to text Haven, posing as a girl named Brianna, to learn more about him.

    "She said that Haven Monahan was somebody in her chemistry class who had been interested in her and had expressed that to her, but she really wasn't interested in him," Duffin said.

    "She came up with this plan she got me and Alex to pretend to be other girls in Haven's class and text Haven to gauge whether he was a good person or not," Duffin said.

    CBS 6 obtained logs of hundreds of text messages between Jackie, Ryan and the person on the other end, who was presumed to be Haven Monahan, a fraternity member who would later be accused of rape by Jackie.

    These documents are now in the hands of attorneys and CBS 6 has redacted Jackie's last name and put them online here, so that readers can follow the conversation.
