Off Topic Durham Jury May Not Hear Previous Claims

Rape shield laws may prevent a jury for the Duke lacrosse rape case from hearing the victim’s previous claim of rape. But from the same story we have the most eyebrow raising comment,

A phone number for the accuser has been disconnected, and her father said Thursday night he remembered little about the incident except going with police to a home where he said his daughter was being held “against her will.”

Asked Thursday if she was sexually assaulted, her father said, “I can’t remember.” In an interview with the News & Observer of Raleigh, posted Thursday night on the newspaper’s Web site, he said the men “didn’t do anything to her.”

What is up with this family and accuser? Her father doesn’t remember his daughter’s first rape? Are you kidding me? Is this just like for giggles? Are we witnessing a trend here?
