This made my jaw drop:

From this article:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/more/12/22/ap.dukelacrosseurgent.ap/index.html

"Under state law, a rape charge requires vaginal intercourse"

"The accuser, a 28-year-old student at North Carolina Central University, has said three men raped her -- vaginally, anally and orally -- while holding her against her will in a bathroom at a March 13 Duke lacrosse team party where she was hired to perform as a stripper."

"Nifong filed court papers that said the accuser told an investigator Thursday that she is no longer certain whether she was penetrated vaginally with the men's penises"

So they're dropping rape charges and instead charging the guys with the more general "sexual offense". I had no idea some places had bizarrely narrow definitions of rape.
