FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -An attorney representing a woman who accused three Arkansas basketball players of rape is seeking a special prosecutor after local authorities chose not to file charges.
Attorney John D. Bass filed a petition Tuesday on behalf of the accuser's father, claiming the Washington County prosecutor's office did not conduct an independent investigation after university police looked into the matter. The petition claims the school ``has enormous incentive to see that this matter is investigated in a manner favorable to UA.''
Prosecutor John Threet says he does not object to a special prosecutor.
