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.

"District Attorney Mike Nifong was disbarred and eventually spent a day in jail . . .

In cases like these, the Nifong type offenders should be subject to the same amount of jail time as they were trying to impose on those they were unjustly trying to convict. This kind of crap would end in an instant.

Additionally, all attorneys involved in any court hearings should be subject to the same court rules as any average citizen compelled to give testemony. Isn't it strange the only ones speaking in a court room who are not under oath are the attorneys and the Judge?
