(Not A) Hump Day: Duke Prosecutors May Announce The Transparently Obvious Tomorrow

Jeeze. I've been looking for this sort of announcement -of-an-announcement for two or three weeks now.

The North Carolina Attorney General's office has finished its interviews and could announce a decision on whether to drop all charges against the three former Duke students as early as tomorrow in a Raleigh news conference, ABC news has learned.


Two respected assistant attorneys general, James Coman and Mary D. Winstead, took over the case and re-interviewed many, if not all the witnesses in the case before the decision, which is expected to be announced as soon as tomorrow.

Last time I saw an ABC report on this, it seemed (IIRC) to downplay just how shaky the accuser's testimony was, and how damning the evidence against her allegation. Looks like they see where this train is heading and now want to be on the right side of the tracks. (Okay, that makes no sense. So what. You know what I mean.)

The case against Colin Finnety, Reade Seligmann and David Evans, the three Duke lacrosse players, has been heavily criticized.

Seligmann produced a credible alibi, and the accusing witness changed her story about what happened on March 13, 2006 several times.

Her back-and-forth testimony led to the dismissal of the rape charge in December of last year. But the young men remain charged with first-degree kidnapping and first-degree sexual offense.

Previous reports have been less willing to call her claims into question with those sorts of particulars.
