A D.C. superior judge on Tuesday acquitted three romantically linked men who were accused of misleading police in the investigation of a stabbing at their home in 2006.
A D.C. Superior Court judge yesterday ruled against a grandmother hoping to bring Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's school takeover before voters — a decision that likely ends any challenge to the mayor's proposal and allows him to assume official control of the public school system next week.
She said it was very probable the government's theory that all or some of the men withheld helpful information was correct, but she couldn't find the men guilty.
