Duke Lacrosse: Story, What Story?

How's that case looking, Mike?

In her latest statement to investigators, the accuser in the Duke lacrosse rape case changed her account again about when the alleged gang rape occurred, who attacked her and how.

Defense attorneys filed the statement in court today, arguing that it was more evidence that the woman is an unreliable witness.

The woman adjusted the timing of the assault to earlier in the evening, a time point preceding the well-documented alibi of one accused player, Reade Seligmann. The defense, however, introduced yet more alibi evidence for Seligmann: he was on the cell phone with his girlfriend during the height of the attack as the accuser now times it.

* In her latest statement she said the attack ended at midnight.

In previous accounts, the woman said the gang-rape ended shortly before she left in the car driven by Kim Roberts, the second dancer. Roberts called 911 as she was driving away at 12:53 a.m., according to police records. This new account leaves 50 minutes unaccounted between the end of the rape and the departure from the party.

The new statement runs contrary to time stamped photos of the party, which show the two women dancing between 12:00 and 12:04 a.m. in the living room of the house at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd.

I'm still of the opinion that the defendents should demand a trial, so that they can confront the accuser and Nifong, as is their Right per the Constitution. Now that the rape charges have been dropped, she is no longer covered by the rape shield.

Per the usual, Mike Nifong could not be reached for comment by the Raleigh News and Observer. I bet if the NY Times calls, he'll be available.

Hey, some more to the Duke Lacrosse soap opera

District Attorney Mike Nifong has hired a Winston-Salem lawyer who was critical of his early handling of the Duke lacrosse case during a national TV interview in April.

During an April 19 segment of "The Abrams Report," Freedman had this to say about the case:

"Well, that everything has been mishandled from the start. You had a district attorney coming out and making potentially unethical statements, saying he believed a crime occurred, which he should not do. He should not be commenting on the evidence. He took an adversarial position from the start."

    Isn’t it about time this was dropped? Shouldn’t somebody file charges against this Tawana Brawley wanna-be for lying to investigators?

    Where’s Al Sharpton when you need him anyway?…

    Your local Kentucky Fried Chicken, or other fast food restaurant, may be serving halal meat. What does that mean? Halal meat is meat that has been slaughtered according to Muslim law. Specifically, facing the animal toward Mecca, ‘reciting “Bismillah…
