LA - Convictions overturned in 2008 Covington gang rape
The Louisiana Supreme Court has tossed the convictions of four men accused of gang-raping a teenage girl during a 2008 house party in Covington, saying new evidence and the ever-shifting stories of the victim and a key witness raised enough questions to warrant a new trial.
The four men — Derrick Maise, 26; Brett Ward, 31; Clayton James King, 25; and Michael Ayo, 28 — are all serving life sentences in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola after they were convicted of aggravated rape of a 15-year-old victim. They remain there pending new bail hearings.

I was hoping to see some opinions on this. I hope if these boys are innocent they are freed. It's going to be hard to figure out.
