(( Kobe Bryant left the friendly confines of the basketball court for the legal arena today. He's listening as prosecutors outlined their rape against him. The District annorney is expected to offer photographs and testimony to try and convince a Colorado judge the case should go to trial. The Los Angeles Laker all star is accused of raping a 19-year-old woman at a nearby Mountain resort in June. The married Bryant admitted he had sex with the woman, but said it was consensual.
Bryant was also here for a bail hearing. Since he was charged, he's been free on 25-thousand dollars bond. While in Colorado today Bryant's attorneys may push for his arraignment where he'll plead not guilty. By agreeing to an immediate arraignment, Bryant wont have to come back to Eagle again in the next 30 days to answer the charge If convicted Kobe Bryant could face life in prison.

There is some significant medical news for breast cancer patients. A new drug combination shows promise in stopping a recurrance of the cancer. The drug letrozole (LEH'-truh-zohl) is for women whose cancers grow in the presence of the female hormone estrogen. It works by inhibiting the formation of estrogen. Researchers say women who got letrozole had about half as many recurrences compared with women who did not get letrozole.
