Duke LAX Rape Suspect Now Guilty of Anti-Gay Assault

Collin Finnerty’s parents must be so proud. Not only is the 19-year-old embroiled in the Duke lacrosse rape scandal but this week he was convicted of a misdemeanor stemming from an anti-gay assault last year. The New Yorker’s two day trial ended in a sentence of six months probation. Finnerty was charged with instigating the assault of two gay men at a bar in November, throwing homophobic slurs around while pretending to punch the men. It was Finnerty’s two friends who did the actual throwing down, but those two are off the hook thanks to a first-time offenders program.
