RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Rolling Stone is casting doubt on a young woman's account of being gang-raped at a fraternity party at the University of Virginia.
The magazine says in a statement posted to its website Friday that there now appear to be discrepancies in the account given by the woman, known publicly only as "Jackie."
The account was published in a lengthy article in Rolling Stone last month and has put a spotlight on the issue of sexual assault on college campuses in the U.S.
The statement says "our trust in her was misplaced."
