Nifong in the Dock

Nifong's ethics hearing in front of the North Carolina State Bar began today. Each side gave opening arguments, and a police investigator testified against Nifong.

"We didn't have any DNA. We didn't have him at the party," Himan said of lacrosse player Reade Seligmann. "It was a big concern to me to go for an indictment when we did not even know where he was _ if he was even there."

Read the article in the Winston-Salem Journal . . .

Do you think the N.C. State Bar should impose any sanctions on Nifong? If so, what should they be? I personally believe he should be disbarred, not only for the damage he did to the Lacrosse players and their families, but also for the damage he did to the integrity of the Criminal Justice System. And I think every other conviction he secured should be examined to see if he plaid the same dirty tricks to get them.
