Mike Nifong in Court

Discredited and disbarred former Durham, NC DA Mike Nifong is in court today facing criminal contempt charges related to the Lying, Crazy, Drugged Up Stripper Case (aka…the Duke non-rape case).

Disgraced former prosecutor Mike Nifong pleaded not guilty Thursday to criminal contempt charges stemming from his failure to turn over complete DNA testing results during the discredited Duke lacrosse rape case.

As he has at every step of the way in this case, KC Johnson at Durham in Wonderland has all the details.

In the most emotionally charged moment of the morning, Brad Bannon (a member of the players defense team) eviscerated Glover’s claim that the multiple male DNA found by Meehan was “not significantly exculpatory.”

Bannon responded, “That’s absolutely false.” He then paused before adding, “And you know it.”

...
Nifong, said (Jim) Glover (Nifong’s attorney), “simply didn’t pay any attention(!)” to what was in the DNA Security report, since he had “developed a habit of not paying much attention to the details and specifics of what was in these reports.” Glover concluded, “What he did in this case was what he did in other cases.”

This statement was nothing short of astonishing.

I know it’s hard to pierce the immunity of a prosecutor but I really can’t imagine any judge enjoys being lied to in his own courtroom and however indirectly, being a part of such a grave injustice.

Here’s hoping the judge sticks it to this contemptible SOB.
