Top of the Morning Common

I do not disagree with your comments.

I think the parties involved have to step back and take a deep breath.

Given the lapse of time, the costs associated with a questionable trial outcome, the certainty that a change of venue would be granted, and the deep pockets to fund the best defense possible, I don't see the DA bringing charges.

If the statute of limitations does not apply, perhaps the alleged victim should look into a special prosecutor and bringing testimony before a grand jury.

There are just too many issues, including the passage of time, which make it unlikely there will be an indictment.

And the passage of time likely has closed the option for a court ordered financial settlement in a civil action. I'm certain there are attorneys willing to bring such an action; their hope would be the Senator would write a check to make this go away.

Unfortunate there has been more focus on issues like this then the ongoing trial against 3 alleged NC terrorist suspects.
