Duke Lacrosse Players Indicted
A Durham, NC grand jury indicted two members of the Duke lacrosse team for sexually assaulting a black woman. It will be very hard to convict since last week defense lawyers announced none of the players who had their DNA tested were linked to the crime. The local district attorney has an up-coming election and is under pressure to be tough with the Duke student athletes. The man has been holding public listening sessions about the case--something that looks very unprofessional.
