Three Duke University Lacrosse Players Charged With Rape!  Explosive headlines polarized the country. A top university with a prestigious athletic department was smeared and student Reade Seligman and two classmates were charged in the midst of racial insults and an atmosphere of race versus privilege. As the news unfolds, there are lies and alibis and the story of a prosecutor who crossed an ethical line to sort through. Facing 25 years behind bars, all three defendants were found to be falsely accused and their charges were dismissed. But in a surprising turn of events, Durham County Prosecutor Mike Nifong, who seemingly believed the accuser and withheld exonerating DNA evidence, was ultimately disbarred by the North Carolina State Bar for ethics violations. Tune in to hear acclaimed North Carolina lawyer, Duke University graduate and counsel to Reade Seligman, James P. Cooney III, tell the inside scoop.
