Players in Duke Lacrosse Sexual Assault Case Summoned in Possible Sign of Investigation Ending

The three former Duke lacrosse players accused of sexually assaulting an escort service dancer more than a year ago began arriving in Raleigh Monday in a possible sign that special prosecutors were wrapping up their investigation, according to the News Observer.

Reade Seligmann landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport Monday afternoon. Also charged in the case are Dave Evans and Collin Finnerty.

Finnerty's father, Kevin, said he and his family were flying to Raleigh later in the day.

There was no word on if or when state Attorney General Roy Cooper would make an announcement about the case.

Special prosecutors Jim Coman and Mary D. Winstead have spent the past three months examining evidence and interviewing witnesses in an effort to wrap up the case.

It's been more than a year now since a woman told cops she was gang-raped by the three at a Duke lacrosse team party. Rape charges were dropped in December but sexual assault and kidnapping charges still remain.
