Nifong Cuts Losses

Now that he’s looking at charges, the district attorney prosecuting the Duke LaCrosse Team players wants to be replaced.

Via Sports Illustrated,

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Facing ethics charges that could lead to his disbarment, the embattled district attorney in the Duke lacrosse sexual assault case has asked the state attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to take over the case.

Noelle Talley, a spokeswoman for the attorney general, said Friday in an e-mail that District Attorney Mike Nifong sent a letter requesting the special prosecutor.

Nifong’s attorney insisted the veteran prosecutor was not running from a weak case and said Nifong was disappointed he would not take it to trial.

Oh yeah. It has nothing to do with the fact that the accuser has lied through her teeth from square one, that no DNA from any of the players was found after multiple tests, that ATM and cell phone records show that at least one of the accused players couldn’t possibly have been involved in the so called sexual assault, or that the accuser was on the phone during the time she said she was assaulted in her latest version of her tale.

Under North Carolina law, only a district attorney can formally request a special prosecutor. The request can be made when there are potential conflicts of interest, when a case is particularly complex or when there are other unusual circumstances.

Once the ethics charges were filed, Nifong “had a conflict of interest with respect with the case,” said Ron Sullivan, a criminal law professor at Yale University. “It’s probably safe to say that Nifong felt that he couldn’t be completely objective.”

Legal experts and observers have railed against Nifong in recent weeks, calling his case pitfully weak and casting doubt on his chance of winning.

“I think we’re all delighted that we’re going to have objective and competent prosecutors reviewing this case,” said James P. Cooney III, an attorney for Seligmann. “We look forward to cooperating with those prosecutors fully and completely in bringing this prosecution to an end.”

It has nothing at all to do with the fact that there is absolutely zero evidence of any assault, and in fact there is plenty of evidence suggesting the contrary. It has nothing to do with the fact that Nifong has destroyed the reputations of innocent young men in his personal axe grinding mission.

No, it’s only because the charges leveled against him might be a distraction to the case.

Sure, Mike. We all believe that. Got a bridge you could sell us on E-Bay?

You’ve made a complete ass of yourself. The best thing you can do for yourself is shut your trap and catch the next flight to some country without an extradition treaty with the United States.

Goodbye, and good riddance.

    It’s about damn time.

  2. The thing that gets me the most is how blatant botch case this was. The line up for the “alleged victim” to pick from was composed of only the lacrosse players. She could have picked anyone and they would have been there. I hope Nifongs glad he got all that publicity because it’s going to be undoing, and deservedly so.

  3. that should read “how blatant a botched case this was”.

    Too much Malbec.
