    An obvious question has to be why was there such a time lag in both cases between the alleged crime and when it was reported.

    You mean that there HAS TO BE EVIDENCE for a GRAND JURY TO INDICT SOMEONE??????? REALLY?????? Is this a NEW LAW? And just WHEN WAS THE LAW ACTUALLY CHANGED? Wake County DA DOES NOT REQUIRE any evidence before presenting a crime case to the GRAND JURY.....they are ALL JUST RUBBERSTAMPED...
