Former Marshall student cleared

This is an interesting case. One has to wonder why it was reported, but not followed through on?

A former Marshall University student has been cleared of charges he falsely reported that he and a friend were gang raped in a dorm room last year.

The case drew scrutiny from the U.S. Department of Education after The Charleston Gazette revealed Marshall recorded it in a file the school newspaper didn't know existed.

This week, a Cabell County jury acquitted Danny Mills of misdemeanor charges of filing a false report and obstructing a police investigation.

Marshall police charged Mills after he reported that he and a female friend were raped by his roommates.

The woman filed a report but didn't press charges. Nor did campus police charge her.

Marshall chief of staff Matt Turner says the prosecutor believed his evidence was strong enough to take Mills to trial.
