DURHAM, N.C. – Prosecutors dropped rape charges Friday against three Duke University lacrosse players accused of attacking a stripper at a team party, a defense attorney said.
Joseph Cheshire, an attorney for one of the three players, said charges of kidnapping and sexual offense remain in place.
Nifong, of course, couldn’t be reached for comment.
And other charges are still pending.
