    2 Duke Lacrosse Players Indicted/Arrested

    Ekstrand, who represents dozens of players, did not say which players were indicted or what charges they faced. It wasn't clear if the players would turn themselves in Tuesday, or if authorities planned to arrest them.

    2 Duke Lacrosse Players Charged With Rape

    DURHAM, N.C. -- Authorities arrested two 20-year-old Duke University lacrosse players early Tuesday on charges of rape, sexual offense and kidnapping, a jail official said.

    Durham police arrested Reade Seligmann and Collin Finnerty, both sophmores, said Col. George Naylor of the Durham County jail. The arrests come little more than a month after a stripper told police she was raped at a party thrown by the team.
    Naylor said the players' bond was set at $400,000. If they are unable to post bond, the players will make a first court appearance Tuesday. Seligmann, is 6-foot-1 sophomore from Essex Fells, N.J. Finnerty is a 6-foot-3 sophomore from Garden City, N.Y.

    The alleged victim, a 27-year-old black woman and mother of two children, told police she was attacked March 13 by three white men in a bathroom at a party held by

    Reade Seligmann has posted bond.

    Seligmann had already posted a $400,000 bond by 7:30 a.m. and Finnerty was in the process of doing so for the same amount. By posting bond, the players avoid making a court appearance today.

    If this goes to trial, character will become a huge centerpiece for both sides.

    And if all the State has is this women's word and a medical report that indicates she had vaginal trauma consistent with sex, then unless the State seats a favorable jury composite, I suspect the young men will be acquitted.

    I think Finnerty's previous attack on a man, assaulting him and calling him gay and other derogatory names, may just pose a small problem for him.

    In rape cases that do not have a smoking gun or a biased jury, witness stand performances carry the day. That is the time when "character" is critically measured.

    Geez...I don't know what to think...I go back and forth...Now, I am leaning towards the woman's story being true. One of the links said that the lacrosse team had several behavior violations against them, to include many that were severe. It wasn't specific; however, it leads me to believe that this team was out of control.

    These young men need to be prosecuted. I just wish that the third one was arrested, too.

    Based on the information that is available to us, I stongly disagree.

    In my mind's eye, the D.A., Michael Nifong, who is running for office this year in Durham, which is 45% black, took politics into account when he decided to so quickly charge the young men even though the DNA results were fundamentally exonerating evidence of this alleged gang rape.

    At the very least, the D.A. should have waited until he had the results of the additional DNA testing that is being performed.

    But...the grand jury saw the available evidence and decided to indict. Do you think that they indicted because of the dancer picked the guys out of a "line up?"

    My exercise partner, who is an attorney, is livid about this case. He agrees with you. I just do not know what to think. I guess that we will have to see the evidence before we can truly decide.

    I just hope that justice is served in this case, whether that being that the boys are freed or are convicted.

    I also agree with you about the circumstances of why the DA is pushing forward with this case. It seems to me to be a win-win for him. He is passing the ball to a jury and letting them decide. He is also getting a lot of free publicity/face time and doing what his "constituents" would want him to do... I did notice that these boys are not "local." So, that also plays into his thinking, I would assume...

    I am leaning toward the woman's story. I really feel these boys that were arrested felt they were untouchable. Wonder if one of the two boys sent the email?

    I kind of feel this way in my gut, but I need more info...I guess.

    I also wondered if one of these boys sent that over-the-top email. The link with the email and its authro is probably somewhere in the other thread. I'm too lazy to search for it.
