SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich.
(AP) - A Dearborn man, who said
he wants to become a police officer,
has returned to college while he
awaits retrial on a charge that he
raped a Lake Superior State
Circuit Judge Martin Breighner
on.Tuesday ordered the new trial for
David Cabellero, saying the former
Lake Superior State student had an
inadequate defense during his first
The rape case brought national at-
tention when a sympathetic judge set
aside Caballero's original conviction
so as not to destroy the student's life
or his hopes for a criminal justice
Breighner's ruling lifted a great
weight from Caballero's shoulders,
said defense lawyer David
Goldenberg in Southfield. "Right
now he's not convicted of anything,"
Goldenberg said yesterday. The
former college wrestler contends the
woman consented to sex.
For the first time since his
January conviction on two counts of
criminal sexual contact, Caballero
returned to college Monday to a un-
named college in the metropolitan
Caballero's application for ad-
mission to the University of
Michigan at Dearborn earlier this
year angered some campus groups
Dep. Clerk Diane Cork in
Chippewa County Circuit Court said
no new trial date has been set. The
Dearborn native has been free on
bond since his January conviction.
Chris DeWitt, a spokesman for
the attorney general's office in
Lansing, said he did not know how
the victim reacted to Breighner's rul-
ing, or whether she is willing to
pursue a second trial.
Assistant Attorney General Eric
Eggan, who is handling the case,
said he was disappointed with the
ruling "but we're certainly deter-
mined to go forward."

DETROIT (AP) - Mayor
Coleman Young likely will spend
another four years in the mayor's of-
fice, because a congressman wasted a
chance to unseat him and his runoff
opponent is too inexperienced to
take him on, analyst said yesterday.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers entered
late, then ran a disorganized, ineffec-
tive campaign, while the second-
place finisher, accountant Tom
Barrow, lacks the political back-
ground he needs, they say.
"Conyers shot himself in the foot
by making derogatory remarks about
city leaders. His campaign had no
content, no issues," said Wilbur
Rich, an associate professor of polit-
ical science at Wayne State
University and the author of a biog-
raphy on Young. "Barrow still needs
to find out how government works."
Rich said Barrow needed to reach
tde average city people more, but
it's probably too late now.
Some analysts were not surprised
by Conyers' poor showing and
Barrow's victory, although Conyers,
serving his 13th term in Congress,
had a slight edge early in the race be-
cause of name recognition.
Conyers may suffer next year if
he seeks a 14th term in Congress,
because of publicity as a failure in
the mayoral race, said Tom Turner,
secretary-treasurer of AFL-CIO in
The Rev. Jim Holley, a well,
known Detroit activist who remained
neutral in the primary, said Barrow
is a long shot in November.
"He's going to have to spend
eight weeks demonstrating to the
grass-roots people he is concerned"
said Holley of Little Rock Baptist
Church. "He has not been able to
put the campaign together to move
him out of the young Buppies
(Black Urban Professionals.)"
In Tuesday's non-partisan pri-
mary, Young had 103,827 votes, or
51 percent, and Barrow had 48,695,
or 24 percent. Conyers was third
with 36, 247, or 18 percent.
The other candidates, including
City Council President Erma
Henderson in a distant fourth place,
shared the rest of the vote.
Chantee Charles, 13, of Arlington, Va., appears at the White House where President Bush signed a
proclamation for national DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Day. Charles, who was asped to speak at
the event, gave the audience a tough lecture against the death penalty, which Bush favors. "The guard that
turns on the switch to electrocute the prisoner is just as much a murderer as the person who has committed
the crime," she told the audience.
U.S. drug fight spreads
in S. America
The U.S. military presence is small but
slowly spreading in the heart of South
America's cocaine country.
Expansion is most evident in Peru, where
about 20 U.S. Army Special Forces members
arrived three months ago to provide paramili-
tary training to national police in their battle
against a fearsome alliance of cocaine traffick-
ers and Maoist guerillas.
In Bolivia, where the fight is less dramatic
but equally entrenched, about a dozen Green
Berets have been conducting training and sup-
port operations from low-profile jungle base
camps for years.
The confidential V hite House directive
giving the American military more leeway in
the drug war was crafted with Peru and
Bolivia in mind, according to officials in
In Colombia, home to the biggest cocaine
cartels, U.S. officials deny any military inten-
tions beyond those associated with the deliv-
ery of hardware.
About 200 soldiers, including advisers,
trainers and technicians, accompanied the re-
cent arrival of two C-130 transport planes, A-
37 observation and attack jets, UH-1H Huey
helicopters and other equipment in an emer-
gency U.S. aid package for Colombia's anti-
But U.S. Ambassador Thomas McNamara
told reporters the U.S. crews would get the
gear working, give some instruction and then
get out - most of them within a few hours
Colombian President Virgilio Barco re-
peatedly has insisted his country wants U.S.
money and equipment, not troops.
Direct American military action would
almost inevitably produce a wave of anti-U.S.
nationalism and would certainly embarrass the
Barco government, which has pressed for the
United States to get out of Central American
Peru and Bolivia, much poorer countries,
also oppose major U.S. troop involvement
but have allowed some training and support
personnel to operate.
In Peru, about 20 bilingual Green Berets
began instructing anti-narcotics police at a
special base near the central jungle town of
Satipo, officials from the U.S. Embassy In
"It's intensive training, almost one-a
one," said embassy spokesperson Genie
Bigler. "They're taking small groups of 40 to
50 policemen and training them five weeks at
"There's one whole section on entering
and leaving helicopters under fire."
He said the police also are taught mal3
reading, battlefield first aid, jungle patrols an4
"It's the same kind of paramilitary training
that DEA agents are now getting before they
arrive in Peru," Bigler said.
