A former prosecutor said ramifications from the
report, authored by two former FBI agents, could be
more damaging to the state’s criminal justice system
than the Duke lacrosse affair.
Shades of Nifong
The Duke lacrosse case hinged on a similar
decision to withhold evidence.
District Attorney Mike Nifong was disbarred and
eventually spent a day in jail for failing to provide
DNA evidence to defense attorneys representing
lacrosse players from Duke University charged with
raping a woman.
The lab results showed that other men, but none of
the suspects, had been in contact with the woman.
If this is true and the Prosecutors involved knew about it they should be indicted on charges of Murder in the First Degree.
