Surely you remember Mike Nifong. He’s the (former) Durham County North Carolina District Attorney who prosecuted the Duke lacrosse team rape case. What a fiasco that was. Nifong was ultimately disbarred and did jail time for his blatant misconduct as a prosecutor. See previous WCB post here.
Well, to quote a recent Washington Post article by Radley Balko, “… prosecutorial misconduct is rarely a one-off phenomenon.” And indeed, yet more egregious misconduct by Nifong has just been exposed as a result of the 1995 murder conviction of Darryl Howard being overturned for Nifong’s prosecutorial misconduct.
You can read Radley Balko’s Washington Post Story about it here.
