New support for 'rape bait' victim - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

New support for 'rape bait' victim

Good Monday evening.

Do you remember the story we've been following of the female Sparkman Middle School student we've been reporting who claims she was used as “bait” to catch a male student in the act of rape at school? It's a story that's captured national attention. Now, 33 women's organizations across the country have joined together to submit a brief to the Federal Appeals Court supporting her.

Some Huntsville residents are none too happy that the City Council has agreed to sell a 10 acre city park to UAH. WAFF 48's Sarah Navoy will have more on the sale of that park for $900,000 that was approved today.

Speaking of UAH and money, how much does it cost to fund the Chargers hockey program? Out of necessity, their road trips are much longer than most road trips because they play a lot of teams located farther north of us. We'll explore that question in a 48 Investigation.

And here on the eve of election day, WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux will take a closer look at one of the most-hyped races in the state: the gubernatorial race between incumbent Robert Bentley and challenger Parker Griffith.

Be sure and join us for these stories and more at 10.
