In an interview with the Washington Post in 2006, when he was a senior at Landon High School, Huguely expressed sympathy for the Duke lacrosse players, some of whom also attended Landon, who were then caught up in a sex scandal that later proved to be false.
"They've been scrutinized so hard and no one knows what has happened yet. In this country, you're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty," he told the Post. "I think that's the way it should be."
