THE BRONX - 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.
