Hot Topics in the Law Luncheon Program: "The Alleged Rape Incident at Hofstra"

The Touro Law Center Student Bar Association (SBA) is sponsoring, along with a number of other student organizations including the Criminal Law Society, the first Hot Topic in the Law program on Thursday, Oct. 1 in the FCR from 12:30-1:25 p.m. The topic is "The Alleged Rape Incident at Hofstra."

As you may be aware, the Nassau County District Attorney's Office has decided not to file a charge of Making a False Written Statement under Section 210.45 of the New York State Penal Law against the accuser of the five men. We have invited several attorneys from the Nassau District Attorney's Office, including District Attorney Kathleen Rice '91, who have been involved in the matter to join us in this open forum. We are also inviting the Detective who is the commander of the Nassau Police Department's special victims squad and who was involved in the initial arrests of those who were charged with the rape.
