Duke Rape Case Dropped

Hosted by

A sensational case that got international news coverage is about to come to an end. All charges are to be dropped against three Duke lacrosse players accused of assaulting a stripper at a team party last year. The Raleigh District Attorney who charged them faces possible disbarment and the North Carolina Attorney General who took over the case plans to drop all charges. The original accuser told wildly different versions of what happened and another dancer at the party contradicted her story. The case may be over, but the consequences may go on for a long time, as we hear from criminal defense attorney Jonna Spilbor, who has been writing about the case in Findlaw.com.
