Duke Lacrosse Players Cleared of Wrongdoing

The State newspaper reported on Thursday, April 12, 2007 that all charges have been dropped against 3 Duke Lacrosse players who were accused of sexually assaulting an exotic dancer.

Larry Pozner, a defense attorney and former president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers said “the landscape is littered with ruined reputations. Tell me who won. Certainly not the complaining witness. Not the school. Not the defendant. Not (District Attorney) Mike Nifong..

North Carolina’s top prosecutor said the athletes were innocent victims of a “tragic rush to accuse” by an overreaching district attorney.

With legal bills estimated at more than $3 million, the families of the accused lacrosse players are considering civil lawsuits to recover their expenses and attempt to restore the reputations of the players.
