Duhram District Attorney Mike Nifong was disbarred Saturday after an investigation by the North Carolina State Bar found that he violated several ethnic rules in the case against 3 Lacrosse players. The panel’s investigation found that Nifong withheld key pieces of DNA evidence from defense attorneys and lied multiple times to both the judge and bar investigators.
Durham residents are anything but angered at Nifong’s disbarment. Many feel that he handled himself in a dignified manner during the whole situation. I think they’re missing the overall big picture. This guy LIED! Why would you carry even an ounce of respect for someone whos lying could have potentially thrown 3 innocent individuals in jail? At least this guy’s not practicing law anymore.
