ACCUSED DUKE LACROSSE PLAYER OWES IRS $6.5 MILLION

February 25, 2011

Former Duke lacrosse player Reade Seligmann is NOT a rapist. He is, however, apparently a tax cheat. Seigmann was one of the Duke lacrosse players who was originally charged with rape but eventually exonerated after being accused by a stripper in a racially charged case that went to trial in 2007.

The Detroit News says Seligmann owes the IRS almost $6.5 million in back taxes. Seligmann’s lawyer said specifically the money is NOT owed from money earned in his settlement of a lawsuit from the case and is owed for the year 2007. According to an IRS expert interviewed by the paper, in order for Seligmann to owe that much money to the IRS, he would have to have earned at least $20 million dollars that year.
