Description

CBS News looks into the investigation of the Duke University Lacrosse team's rape case. Three players were indicted in the case, in which an African-American dancer accused the Duke lacrosse players of sexual assault at a team party. For six months, CBS "reviewed the voluminous case file case file" and interviewed the three players accused: Collin Finnerty, David Evans and Reade Seligmann, who are all caucasian. The story also examined the actions of District Attorney Mike Nifong, and the veracity of the rape accusation. The charges against the three players were dropped two months after the report aired.
