Cleared Duke Player Finnerty Will Attend Loyola, Maryland

One of the three former Duke lacrosse players cleared of false rape charges says he'll transfer to Loyola of Maryland next year.

Collin Finnerty says in a statement provided today to The Associated Press by a family spokeswoman that he'll play for the Greyhounds next season.

Finnerty and fellow players Reade Seligmann and Dave Evans were indicted last spring on charges of rape, kidnapping and sexual offense. The indictments came after a woman told police she was attacked by three men at a March 2006 team party where she was hired to perform as a stripper.

Eventually, state prosecutors who took over the case from the local district attorney dropped all charges. District Attorney Mike Nifong was later disbarred for his actions in the case and resigned from office.
