The punchline to the Nifong joke.

What a joke Mike Nifong has become.  And check out the quote from his attorney.  That’s just laughable. 

The North Carolina State Bar has charged Nifong, the district attorney in Durham County, with several violations of the state’s rules of professional conduct, all tied to his handling of the lacrosse case.

Former Duke Lacrosse Prosecutor Faces Trial

RALEIGH, N.C. (June 12) – More than a year after shocking allegations emerged about Duke University’s lacrosse team, prosecutor Mike Nifong  is heading to trial – as a defendant

Among those expected to watch from the gallery of a packed North Carolina Court of Appeals courtroom are Reade Seligmann and Collin Finnerty, two of the once-charged and now cleared players. Several defense attorneys and family members of the three players are also expected to attend.

Nifong is expected to testify at the trial.

Nifong’s attorney, David Freedman, did not return calls seeking comment Monday. But last week, he insisted his client had no plans to heed calls from his critics to resign.

“Public opinion is not going to weigh in on how the proceeding develops and will not weigh in on the ultimate decision by the bar,” Freedman said. “Our purpose is not to sway public opinion but to present his case to the State Bar.”

  1. The root of many of todays problems is in the statement “public opinion will not sway our decision.”The government and law system are now above the people beleive they are supposed to be representing. Too many times the enforce the laws they want to bend the ones they need to and ignore the laws we need them to enforce.

  2. This prosecutor is not a role model for the justice system. I have practiced criminal law for 40 years and read the rule book every day- criminal law is not an off the cuff task He has earned maximum consequences

  3. I would think this would prove to show further contempt of court, and that Nifong again believes in his OWN “standards?!”
    Another fine example of corruption in office, and is doing nothing but eroding our confidence in not only the government officials “WE” voted into office, but also the government itself!
    Holding an office has become a system where if you are a member, are entitled to do as you wish without consequence! There are 2 sets of laws, one for us, and the other for “THEM!”
    Another lovely fact is the state pays to defend them, meanwhile citizens lose their homes and life savings to have their cases heard! Completely ABSURD!
    I must admit to enjoying the side show! Nifong comes into his appointment by deception, continued in deceptive practices, and is STILL trying to deceive us, and himself! He is truly the epitome of a COWARD!
    Now that he doesn’t have his title to contort and hide behind, he has turned into a sniveling wimp! Hiding his head in the sand and playing his guitar will not change the fact that his avoidance will last only for a season, then his day WILL come!
    Until then he is providing us with A LOT of entertainment, and I am glad to see that he is suffering and frightened! This short taste of his own medicine cannot compare to the deaths of innocent lives of citizens whom he has ignored and defiled!
    He should be so ashamed, and apologetic knowing he purposely almost sent 3 innocent men to jail for years for a crime he KNEW they did not commit, completely ignore murder cases and the entire judicial system ground to a halt for ONE case?! And do we honestly think this was the only circumstance?!
    He cannot hide, nor ignore the fact that he indeed shall reap what he has sewn, and EVERYTHING he did was by his own choice, for his own motives and agenda!
    He is now only beginning to have any sort of pain, AND he is GUILTY by his own admission! Whatever feelings of fright he may have are not near as close to the ones HE was responsible for when they were INNOCENT! The bitter taste of the truthful pill is not nearly as bitter of those of tears of horror and death!
    Nifong is by far alone in his dubious abuses in power, and to NOT hold him LEGALLY responsible is a MOCKERY to the very laws he was entrusted to obey and uphold!
