Players Arrested

The two Duke lacrosse players, who are both sophomores are were subject to yesterday's sealed indictments, have surrendered to and were placed under arrest by Durham police on charges of rape, sexual assault, and kidnapping around 5:00am this morning. Bond was set at $400,000 for each. The players arrested were not among those who lived in the house and whose DNA was found in the bathroom. According to news reports on morning news shows, a defense attorney says it can be proven that at least one of the players was not present at the time of the alleged rape. All we can hope for now is that the trial, whatever the outcome, is clearly definitive one way or the other. The Smoking Gun has posted the indictments.
