The Duke Accuser: New Credibility Questions

Meadows, Susannah
June 2006
Newsweek;6/19/2006, Vol. 147 Issue 25, p8
The article discusses the credibility of the accusation by a dancer that she was raped by members of the Duke University lacrosse team at a party. In question are her conflicting statements about prior sexual activity and her alcohol and drug intake on the night in question. Also contributing to her lack of credibility is the statement by her co-performer, Kim Roberts, who doubts that the assault took place.
