CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Almost a month after a scathing magazine article portrayed three friends as uncaring in the face of a woman's sexual assault, Kathryn Hendley, Alex Stock, and Ryan Duffin say they're still trying to set the record straight.
The three told The Associated Press that a Rolling Stone magazine article about an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity was wrong on a number of key points.
Most important, the friends say they encouraged the victim, identified as "Jackie" in the article, to report the attack to police. That's in contrast with the article, which claimed the three encouraged her to keep quiet.
Other news media have interviewed the friends, but this is the first time Duffin has agreed to use his full name.
