William D. Cohan talked his book The Price of Silence: The Duke Lacrosse Scandal, the Power of the Elite, and the Corruption of Our Great Universities, in which he discusses the Duke University lacrosse scandal of 2006. Cohan acknowledged that, although the three Duke lacrosse players were declared innocent of all rape charges, there were some inconsistencies that did not point to innocence. Mr. Cohan also detailed the cases against the three Duke players: David Evans, Reade Seligmann, and Collin Finnerty. He described how the three young men have gone on to lead successful lives, and have put the scandal behind them. Mr. Cohan talked about the media coverage that followed the scandal, and likened it to the “Malaysian Airlines of its day.” Mr. Cohan, who has also written books about Wall Street and financial corruption, said that this book had created just as much uproar as the others. close
