The state attorney general's report on the Duke lacrosse case says there's no credible evidence that a crime occurred, and that the accuser gave contradictory statements to invetigators.
That's part of a 21-page report outlining the findings of a three-month review of the case. The attorney general's office also says additional evidence uncovered during its investigation backed its determination that the accused players were innocent.
The report says the state's cases, quote, "rested primarily on a witness whose recollection of the facts of the allegations was imprecise and contradictory."
he report also says the accuser's changing accounts of what happened led to what's termed "insurmountable credibility issues."
Today's report comes more than two weeks after Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all remaining charges against former players Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans.
