Court appearance for Tulane football player accused of rape

Tulane University football player Niguel Veal was in an Orleans Parish criminal courtroom Tuesday after he was booked a day earlier with simple rape.

Veal made a brief court appearance in the morning to sign a stay-away order and meet with a domestic violence counselor following his rape arrest on Wednesday.
Veal, a stand out from West Jefferson High School, posted a $20,000 bond Wednesday, getting him out of jail while he contests the rape allegation.

Attorney Chick Foret, who is representing Veal, said his client is innocent and that the matter is a big misunderstanding.

Do you think the 2015 Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival poster showing two faceless black children is racist, or is the controversy just more political correctness gone crazy?
