Duke Lacrosse: Rape Took 5-10 Minutes

Looks like Durham DA Mike Nifong is trying more of his "cover my ass because the case looks like crap" (from WRAL)

Three Duke University lacrosse players took five to 10 minutes to sexually assault a woman hired to perform as a stripper at a team party, and not the 30 minutes she originally described to investigators, a prosecutor said Friday.

"When something happens to you that is really awful, it can seem like it takes place longer than it actually takes," District Attorney Mike Nifong said.

Nifong's comments came as Superior Court Judge W. Osmond Smith III denied a defense request that prosecutors provide a detailed accounting of the alleged assault, including the exact time, place and type of sexual act the accuser said each defendant committed.

Forgive a non-lawyer here, but doesn't the defense have the Right to obtain all evidence that the prosecution has in its possession? Because, based on the constantly changing stories from not only the accuser, but from the District Attorneys office as well, it looks like the defense is being jerked around, and one could certainly make a case for violations of the NC and US Constitutions.

At what point does the ACLU, those champions of civil rights, step in? They won't? Oh, yeah, that is right. The defendents are "rich," white kids going to an elitist school.
