Duke Lacrosse players on the offensive after false rape charges

Sex offense charges and rape accusations can take insurmountable tolls on the lives of the wrongfully accused. You may recall the story of Duke University Lacrosse players accused of raping a stripper during a team party back in 2006. The North Carolina students were exonerated in 2007 of all charges relating to the incident, though are still battling to receive compensation for the toll these charges took on their lives. Progress was made near the end of last month to allow them to proceed with their lawsuit.The players' case had made it all the way up to the U.S. District Court and Judge James A. Beaty Jr. to rule on whether or not their lawsuit would be allowed to proceed. Though the judge did dismiss their conspiracy and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims, he affirmed the men had a legitimate claim that their constitutional rights had been violated by the prosecution during the original case. Judge Beaty found there to be evidence fabrication and the use of false evidence by the prosecution, warranting a case to examine amendment rights violations on behalf of the state.

Sex offender arrested in North Carolina for using Facebook

A Swannanoa, North Carolina woman was arrested earlier this month and charged with two counts of using social networking sites as a registered sex offender. A Buncombe County judge set her bail at $5,000.The Swannanoa woman had been convicted of participating in the prostitution of a minor in North Carolina back in 1996. The charge and conviction in Randolph County led to a two-month stint in prison, after which she was released and forced to register as a sex offender.As we've discussed previously, North Carolina's General Assembly passed a law that went into effect in 2009 prohibiting all registered sex offenders from maintaining a personal profile with any social networking site. Offenders are still allowed to use the internet for legitimate business purposes and for social email communication, but sites such as Facebook, Myspace and Twitter are off-limits.
