Third Duke Lacrosse Player, David Evans, Indicted in Rape Case


As was rumored a third Duke lacrosse player, David Evans, a 23-year-old senior, has been indicted for first-degree charges of forceable rape, sexual offense and kidnapping.

DURHAM, – N.C. — A third Duke University lacrosse player has been indicted for his role in the alleged rape of a 27-year-old exotic dancer.

FOX News had learned from defense attorneys that Evans planned to surrender himself and post bond immediately once an indictment does come down. He and his family plan to make a formal press statement in front of the Durham county jail once he is formally charged. A 2 p.m. EDT press conference in Durham was expected.

UPDATE: (Fox News) Duke Lacrosse Player: ‘I’m Absolutely Innocent’

Monday that he is “absolutely innocent” of all charges and that the allegations against him “are lies, fabricated … and they will be proven wrong.”

Evans gave a brief statement, during which he called the charges against him and two other indicted teammates “fantastic lies.”

Evans, a team co-captain, is one of three lacrosse players who lived at the house at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd, where the alleged rape took place the night of March 13. Evans said he and his roommates helped police search for evidence after the incident was reported. He also answered questions and gave a statement to police without a lawyer present “because I knew I had done nothing wrong.”
