Two Duke lacrosse players were indicted:
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A grand jury issued sealed indictments Monday against two members of the Duke University lacrosse team in connection with allegations that a stripper was raped last month at a team party, a source close to the case told The Associated Press.
The source, speaking on condition of anonymity because the grand jury proceedings are secret, said he did not know which players on the 47-member team were indicted.
The grand jury adjourned around 2 p.m. Monday, handing up indictments a short time later to Superior Court Judge Ronald Stephens. A filing at the courthouse said the judge had sealed at least one indictment, citing a state law that allows an indictment to be “kept secret until the defendant is arrested or appears before the court.”
A 27-year-old black woman told police she was attacked March 13 by three white men in a bathroom at a party held by the lacrosse team.
