Wow. That’s a real upstanding series of D.A.s that Durham has had recently. (rme)
So if she is removed from office, will that also disbar her?
I don’t know. I don’t think that it would automatically, as that’s handled by the state Bar Association. Now if she gets thrown out, would they try to disbar her? Quite possibly, I don’t know how that all works. I also wonder if she’d be able to run for DA again this November if she got removed.
More information below from the local Durham newspaper, the Herald-Sun, which has been very quiet about this, as indeed they were about Nifong’s massive malfeasance in the Duke lacrosse case.
