Duke Rape Case gets Stranger … Duke Lacrosse Accuser Gives Birth


The 28 year old accuser that states she was attacked by three Duke Lacrosse player, David Duke_LAXEvans, 20, Collin Finnerty, 20,   and Reade Seligmann, 20, gave birth today. According to the report from WRAL, “She was not due until February.”

A judge has ordered a paternity test although prosecutors and defense attorneys have said the child was not fathered by any of the players.

So according to this Paternity calculator, the accuser became pregnant after the alleged sexual assault. The Duke Lacrosse party where the 28 year old was hired as a dancer took place on March 13, 2006. It hardly seems as if the child was fathered as a result of the alleged sexual assault. However, it would appear that it took place following the alleged assault. Yet another credibility blow to the accusations.

      So as a NC taxpayer I have paid for this women’s room and board, prenatal care and C-section.

      The student’s parents have paid over a million in lawyer’s fees. Not to mention all the emotional pain and distress of having your son’s face broadcast all over the nation as a rapist.

      Thanks Nifong

      I don’t see how the fact that she had a baby discredits her claims. One thing has nothing to do with the other.

      chloe: I agree. What does one thing have to do with the other. Why blame the victim? Most people say what did she expect? Going into a house full of drunk students. I tell you what she expected. She expected to be treated like a lady.

      We are not blaming the victim … I hope for her sake her allegations have been honest, as it would be a terrible thing for victims of rape and those accused if they are not.

      They point is that she became pregnant shortly after the rape.

      Folks, we are a victims rights site; however, the rape victims I have known personally would never have engaged in events that would have produced a baby 1-2 months after a rape.

      This case has more bizarre turns.

      With all that dna,who’s the daddy,who knows?Who cares.The victims here are the accused.

      In more ways than one.

      You’re darn tootin’ Duke offered “reinstatement” to Lacrosse team players, especially so after this lawsuit was filed:


      So OK, maybe some Duke LAX players behaved “badly” — but “criminally” — that we don’t know.

      What DUKE better get straight is this: if student athletes are forking over $45,000 per annum (room board tuition) to attend this place, DUKE also has some obligations.

      And they are — what: failing any student athlete who played LAX?

      Sure thing: you can talk to my attorney.


      SM: Duke treated their LAX players unfairly … Hmm. Think I will disagree on that one. The Duke LAX team was perpetually in trouble. Having played college athletics … if our team was busted for having hired a stripper, let alone the rape allegations that came later … we would have been booted from the team and possible school suspensions would have been handed down. There is a conduct that college athletes are supposed to adhere to. not all colleges abide by it, however, Duke sure better.

      But Red, wouldn’t it be fair to say that not all rape victims respond psychologically in the same way? Is there a “standard” time frame when they are able to have sex again? You are infering that because she had sex 1-2 months after her alleged assault, she is not to be believed. That would be blaming the victim.


      SM: Nope, not blaming the victim … pointing out its highly irregular.


    8. yoyo muffintop on January 4th, 2007 11:57 pm

      But don’t get me wrong – I believe the sheer number of, shall we say, “irregularities” from the DA, coupled with the lack of DNA for starters, shows major doubt. But getting pregnant 1-2months after the alleged attack is irrelevant.

      and hammer, you turned down Duke? Impressive.

      So how about we move around political correctness? It seems that Nifong did what he did to gain black votes. I don’t know much about DNA but can it be determined that the latest illegitimate baby was fathered by a Negro? That would kind of clear the air a bit, I think. Maybe the plus side of all of this is that the N word can be redefined as Nifong. It is sad but true that we can almost no longer talk about reality in this country. Everything has to be so carefully worded that reality gets lost.

      Is there a law that says the public officer should have a malpractice insurance policy? Maybe that should be a criteria for running for public office, and the policy premiums should be paid by the politican and not the taxpayers.

      This all seems to boil down to Pingpong

      Please- I am begging you to amend your comments. In particular the thing about rape victims not engaging in sexual activity after rape. Engaging in risky sexual activity after rape is common, even for people who did not before. This is especially true for children and younger people. It is less common for married victims and older people, however they suffer from higher incidences of drug and alcohol abuse after rape. You can visit the CDC or any number of websites that deal with rape recovery to see what I am talking about. I am not saying that the woman in this case is a legitimate victim or not. I honestly have no idea. It’s just that a lot of people don’t know the truth about the issues that people face after rape. Most people don’t really know, actually, because thankfully they haven’t experienced that terror.

    12. Big Lou on January 5th, 2007 9:41 pm

      chloe, I agree with you. Good post.

      Even though these guys were exonerate, I still don’t accept their pleas. Any rich person can “buy” justice and/or alter the DNA. If you’re poor , of course, it will never go in favor of the that person

      ..and there was a recent story about the victim killing her ex boyfriend. In spite of it, I still think that is something that isn’t right about those guys. Like I said , if you’re rich, you can by justice. Supposedly, it has also been said that she’s dealing with mental health issues. If you’re mentally ill people will also use that argument against you when there are people dealing with the problem that works as doctors, lawyers accountants. You just cannot assume the worse in people because they are mentally ill.

      I’m sorry, I will never buy this story because of their status. People can buy into their innocence all they want but no matter how ” innocent” those guys are, the truth will come out and money can’t buy you everything. The truth will come out in the unlikeliest of ways
