Overview

The party was planned . . . college friends, booze, even a couple of strippers. But, the revelry the boys were anticipating never happened. Instead of the good time they had hoped for, several members of the Duke University lacrosse team were charged with assault and rape. Amazingly, when the district attorney stepped up to the bank of microphones on a world stage and made his pronouncement, it soulded like an easy verdict. Few suspected that this blockbuster of a news story was based on lies and furthered by private political ambitions.

Seasoned trial lawyer Nader Baydoun, a Duke alumnus, paid close attention to the lacrosse case from the moment it broke. And it wasn't long before he suspected that something was wrong. Baydoun started digging. here's what he and his collaborator, New York Times best-selling author and attorney R. Stephanie Good, found:

  • From the very start, the supposed victim, Crystal Gale Mangum, and her partner, gave highly inconsistent statements
  • District Attorney Mike Nifong never interviewed Mangum about the night of the supposed rape
  • The DA damned the players in the press even after he saw DNA evidence that irrevocably vindicated them
  • Nifong made a deal to keep exculpatory DNA evidence a secret
  • The DA refused to review other evidence that proved the players could not have sexually assaulted Mangum, including rock-solid alibis

These appalling facts, along with many others revealed here, add up to this: At no time was there ever any credible evidence that a rape had occurred―and the DA dragged three innocent young men through a merciless gauntlet for the sole purpose of advancing his political career.

In this landmark book, Baydoun gives the behind-the-scenes account of the Duke lacrosse rape case from primary sources, and sheds light on the real victims in a case that gripped the nation.

    Injustice??? A word used frivilously through this whole ordeal with the Duke Lacrosse case. I have read this book, the only injustice is for a book to be out about this case. Was it injustice to be molested and raped by several players? Was it injustice to have your life tossed in to public view? Probably not to most people who read this book. However, most people probably feel sorry for these players? Call me insensitive but I do not. I feel sorry for the 200 black men that have been exonerated since DNA evidence has been admitted. I feel sorry for all the miniorities that have been falsely accused and had their life turned in to shambles and they have to go back to the same desolate situation, without compensation. Sorry America I do not feel sorry. So I do not come off to harsh, the book was well written, but a pointless read and a great waste of time. But the information that is conveyed is pointless and skewed. This just seems like people love a one-sided story. Now, do not get me wrong I would not want anyone accused for something that they did not do. However, to mark this trial as injustice is a joke. These 'boys' will have no loss of life, no loss of income, and no loss of identity. They will forever be known as the 'Wrongfully Accused' Duke Lacrosse players. Their social class will look above it, their race will get them throught it, and their money will make everyone forget. The only injustices that I find is the injustice this will do to ladies that are truly raped and their fear of accusing someone. Ladies and Gentlemen if you like fiction, a one-sided story, in which injustice is skewed and stretched, this is the book for you. I'm not into reading things of that nature. I like things with substance. Pardon me if I don't follow the rest of the public opinion, but injustice is far from this case and closer to when books like this come out.
