@TMZ, I think it is referred to as "probable cause". Your are thinking of due process, which is different.

Irrelavant. He needs attention and will get all he can stand when Princeton University fires him. He has alittle too much mouth to be representing them. Not to worry there are plenty of house boys around that would love to make his salary.
