On the same day Duke University lacrosse player Collin H. Finnerty was ordered to provide DNA samples in a rape investigation, he was in Washington to face charges that he assaulted a man last fall.

The man said he was minding his own business when the three men started picking on him. The man told them to stop "calling him gay and ... derogatory names." Then they attacked him, he said, "busting his lip and bruising his chin," court records say.


Finnerty was ordered to perform 25 hours of community service in Washington by fall, McCool said. If he performs the service and avoids new arrests, the charges will be dropped, McCool said.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

That is just why so many women refuse to report when they are raped. Does it matter what she is or was in the past? She could be a dirty no good lying "B," but if still deserves her day in court on THIS issue and have ALL the evidence presented.

There is a legal term that says, once a liar always a liar, BUT that you should only rely on that term AFTER all the evidence is presented and the judge/jury still has to rely on circumstancable evidence or shaky testimony.

She'll get her day in court,unless the DA realizes that she is a habitual liar/druggie,etc....if she has a history of drug use,for example, it does matter in this case.These guys are looking at their freedom being taken away and there is absolutely no evidence to this point the we know of proving they did anything to her,so they deserve to be able to defend themselves with all of the information they can legally get.

Druggies and Liars can be victims of rape too. I'm really not too concerned about this anymore. I have full faith that between the investigators and medical evidence, they can and will find out if that girl was really raped. (If they can't...they need to change their line of work, IMO.) I'm most positive they're not gonna convict those boys with no hard proof. Done, in my mind.

A victim being a druggie is no defense for rape. You can rape a druggie. I victim being a habitual liar is a very weak defense as hibitual liars can be raped to. Those boys better hope they have a better defense then she is lying. There is still the hosptial report that says there were physical signs of rape. She can't make that up.

No,but if she has a history of drugs,then it's harder for her to claim date rape drug or something....and it can certainly taint her already questionable story considering the timelines, lack of direct evidence,etc.

Yep, you would think people would no not to put themselves in a situation.

Not only here I am naked, but here I am naked in a room full of horny college boys.

I agree, the defense just better have more to work with then that. I am afraid no matter what happened money is going to talk in this situation. Notice the cab driver suddenly came forward and talked good about the kid whose father met with him and bad about the others.

To me, if he knew that something terrible had probably happened shouldn't he have come forward as soon as the story broke. Kinda sorta like he was an accessory after the fact.
