THE NORTH CAROLINA ATTORNEY GENERAL has released the report on the Duke Lacrosse prosecutorial debacle. The report’s here. Excerpt:

The re-investigation led to the conclusion that there was no credible evidence to support the allegation that the crimes occurred. The new investigation revealed additional weaknesses in the State’s cases based on the case files that had already been developed.

The State’s cases rested primarily on a witness whose recollection of the facts of the allegations was imprecise and contradictory. This alone would have made it difficult for a prosecutor to prove the allegations. However with additional evidence uncovered in the new investigation, it was clear that there was no credible evidence that these crimes occurred at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. in Durham that night.

Naturally, K.C. Johnson is all over this. The Durham Police Department is coming off badly, too.
