DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – The accuser in the Duke lacrosse sexual assault case told prosecutors in December that one of the three players charged did not commit any sex act on her during the alleged attack, according to papers filed yesterday by the defense.

Reade Seligmann was repeatedly urged to take part in the alleged attack, the accuser told an investigator, but he said he could not because he was getting married, the papers said.

“The accuser’s most recent recollection of events demonstrates clearly that she cannot accurately recall and describe her attackers and that any identification made by her is necessarily unreliable,” the defense said.

Lawyers have said Seligmann, 20, has a girlfriend, but there has been no indication that he was engaged or married.
