Mike Nifong Gets Gentle Slap On The Wrist

Trust No-one, by BanksyIn the state of North Carolina, repeatedly lying to several courts attempting to inflame racial tension, deceive the public as well as the courts, and convict people you know to be innocent in a effort to gain reelection and secure your pension comes with a serious price:

one day in jail.

Via CNN:

(CNN) — Embattled former district attorney Mike Nifong was held in criminal contempt of court and sentenced to one day in jail Friday for his actions in the flawed Duke lacrosse team rape case.

Nifong must report to jail September 7, Superior Court Judge W. Osmond Smith III said.

The judge said Nifong’s withholding of DNA evidence from defense attorneys was an affront to the integrity of the judicial system.

The evidence potentially would have cleared the three lacrosse players of sexual assault charges months before North Carolina’s attorney general dropped them in April.

The players initially were accused of raping an exotic dancer during a party last year.

The specific evidence Nifong was accused of withholding was that DNA profiles found on the alleged rape victim were from unidentified males, but did not match any of the 46 lacrosse team members.

The price for the wrongly accused and those around them?

The allegations against the players forced the cancellation of the Duke lacrosse team‘s season and cost coach Mike Pressler his job. The case also inflamed racial tensions in Durham. The three players are white, while the alleged victim is black.

What’s an affront here is that Nifong doesn’t spend five or ten years in jail, and to the best of my ability to ascertain, doesn’t even lose the aforementioned pension.

    These strippers or the persons or persons they work for, were in all liklihood paid off, there sponsor (strip club owner)threaten with closure, crimes or fines. Having been raised in mississippi and spent most of my life there. There is no way, these black strippers would not be charged with some type crime themselves, after lying to law enforcement about being raped. Epecially in the south. NO WAY!

    Hello lugnut,

    Is it your contention then that she (there was only one stripper making the accusation) was in fact raped by the men from the Lacrosse team, and they paid her off to shut her up?

    That hypothesis might hold water, except for all the evidence.

    There is DNA, video, and phone record evidence that these men simply did not do what she said they did.

    That’s not even getting into the changing story she told about what she says they did. There were at least 6 substantially different stories from this woman, all documented.

    I’ll agree with you this far, however: She absolutely should be charged for lying to law enforcement about being raped.

    If you poke around this blog or do just a very little bit of googling, you’ll see just how wrongly this case was prosecuted.

    Thanks for dropping by.

  3. not meaning to split hairs, but exactly what integrity does the justice system have?
