Will Nifong drop the so-called Duke rape case?
Almost every single piece of evidence that has come out in this case has favored the defense. Even the cornerstone of the prosecution's case, the medical exam from Duke hospital that found the accuser had "injuries consistent with being raped and sexually assaulted vaginally and anally," now looks to be much less conclusive than what DA Mike Nifong (and the press and everybody else) made it out to be, especially now that court papers have been filed alleging the accuser "had sex with at least four men and a sexual device in the days immediately leading up to the off-campus party." That group includes the accuser's boyfriend, whose seminal fluid is the only substance conclusively to have been found in or on the accuser so far, despite the fact she told police that the thirty-minute long gang rape she claims took place in the early morning of March 14 did not involve the use of condoms.
In other words, the DA's case is in shambles. As I've written before, however, Nifong's determination to proceed with this case, despite botching the identification process and indicting at least one player who has a seemingly air-tight alibi Nifong seems to have been unaware of, puts him in the disastrous position of having become personally invested in the outcome.
