Duke Lacrosse Rape Case: Witness Intimidation?
DURHAM, North Carolina (AP) — A cab driver who has supported an alibi offered by one of the two Duke lacrosse players charged with rape has been arrested on an old shoplifting warrant.
The warrant accuses Moez Mostafa of stealing five purses worth about $250 from a Durham department store in 2003, which he denies.
Mostafa told The News & Observer of Raleigh he helped store security locate a woman after he had picked her up from the store and drove her home.
“I am not responsible for what she did inside the store,” Mostafa said. “I am just a taxi driver.”
The woman pleaded guilty to larceny three months later, the paper said. Mostafa said he thought he was done with the case until he was arrested Wednesday.
Let me see…he gave a lady who stole 5 purses a ride home (because he is a taxi driver), store security then contacts him in the hopes of finding the woman, the Mr. Mostafa complies, the lady is arrested and confesses. Now three years later Mike Nifong, the District Attorney making news appearances, has him arrested because he can corroborate one of the accused Lacrosse players contention that he left the party before the alleged rape took place. Hmmm…no, nothing suspicious there.
