The defense attorneys have a similar harsh demand, DorT (Dismiss or Trial). It's their signal to the prosecutor that they think his or her case sucks.
In Durham yesterday, attorney Bill Cotter, who represents accused Duke lacrosse player Collin Finnerty said: "I can't tell you about (everybody), but my client's case is either going to be dismissed by the D.A. or go to trial." That's a DorT.
Per our conversation Saturday night, what is going on in Durham?
We know we are not seeing all the evidence, but one of ther indicted players appears to have been absolutely elsewhere when the alleged rape occurred.
Is this Tawana Brawley redux?
W/o being very familiar w/ rape and DNA collection--let's face it, the closest I get is one of the CSI shows or Bones or the one w/ Mark Harmon-- even if a arapist used a condom, wouldn't he leave something behind--skin under the fingernails, an errant hair, something?
