"Apparently, for the first time, yesterday, the first time, representatives of the district attorney's office talked to the accuser. This certainly begs the question, ladies and gentlemen, which I hope you all will ask, why, after all of these months, and all of what these young men have been through, did the district attorney's office first talk to this accuser, which leads to the dismissal of one of these charges,why are they investigating the case now, after they've brought it for months?
"And when they did, ladies and gentlemen, it should be noted clearly by you that her story has now, yet again, changed -- changed. And she now cannot remember the use of a penis in the vaginal rape that she described and which was used to indict these young men.
"And let me say to you that the transparent coincidence between the proving of the failure of the state to give exculpatory evidence which shows that there was no sexual assault and this conversation leading to this young woman saying that she cannot now remember a penis being used is palpable.
"And certainly is something that should give you all great pause in covering this -- great pause in covering this case and asking questions of the prosecutor about the coincidence of last Friday to this Thursday and the dismissal this Friday.
"Questions could be asked such as is this some way to try to explain why there was no DNA of any of these three individuals? At the beginning of this case, the prosecutor in this case referred to these young men and other young men on the Durham -- the Duke lacrosse team as rapists. He now dismisses the charge of rape."
