CAMPUS CRIME
AAPD: Rape
account was
fabricated
by student.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION BEFORE THE COURT
Supreme Court divided

Ann Arbor Police
Department says
student recanted
incident
By AUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily StaffReporter
The student who alleged
she was raped Sunday on Hill
Street has recanted her story,
Ann Arbor Police Lt. Bob
Pfannes said in a statement.
"After a comprehensive
investigation by the Ann Arbor
Police Department, it has been
determined the incident did
not occur," Pfannes said. "The
student has admitted to fabri-
cating the report, and the case
has been sent to the Washt-
enaw County's prosecutor's
office for full review."
The student had previously
told police she was attacked
by four men while walking

home from a party early Sun-
day morning near campus near
Church Street and Tappan
Avenue. After deciding not to
wait for a taxi she called, she
said she proceeded to walk
home.
While en route, she alleged
that the four men dragged
her into an alley and that one
raped her before she was able
to get away.
She could potentially face
charges for filinga false police
report.
At 8:46 p.m. Wednesday,
the University's Department
of Public Safety canceled the
crime alert it had sent out
Sunday morning regarding
the incident. The cancella-
tion states that the Ann Arbor
Police Department investiga-
tion "determined the incident
did not occur."

WASHINGTON - The U.S.
Supreme Court entertained oral
arguments Wednesday morning
in a case that could redefine the

way affirmative action is used
in the United States. In addition
to challenging the fate of admis-
sions programs nationwide, the
case may also alter precedents
set by the University in the land-
mark cases Gratz v. Bollinger
and Grutterv. Bollinger.
Attorneys faced pointed ques-
