Duke Rape Case Update: How Important Is the Court of Public Opinion?
“It was scary,” Evans said. “I woke up from a nap to 10 police officers in my living room with a search warrant.” Said defendant David Evans on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
According to AP, the three members of Duke University’s lacrosse team charged with rape say they had expected DNA testing would clear them of a crime they insist they did not commit. “We were told it would help to clear everything up,” said Collin Finnerty, 20, who was interviewed on CBS’ “60 Minutes” along with Reade Seligmann, 20, and David Evans, 23. “So we were happy to go.”
“It was scary,” Evans said. “I woke up from a nap to 10 police officers in my living room with a search warrant. I went through every part of it – told’em where they could find things and that we’d fully cooperate and answer any questions they had.” Defense attorneys, who have insisted their clients are innocent, declined requests in recent weeks from The Associated Press for interviews with the indicted players.
