Durham DA Nifong: No Contact With Accuser

For those of you who have followed the Duke Lacrosse rape case, how special is this?

Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong handed over more evidence to defense attorneys Friday. He also said in court that he has not talked to the alleged victim in detail about the Duke lacrosse rape case.

Attorneys for the accused players want to know about conversations Nifong may have had with the woman who alleges she was raped at a March 13 party by three members of the Duke lacrosse team. Nifong told the judge that there was nothing to tell.

"I understand the answer may not be the answer that they want, but it is the true answer, and it is the only one I can give them," Nifong said after the hearing.

"Mr. Nifong did admit that he, in fact, has basically never talked to this woman and has absolutely no idea what her story is, and yet he has chosen to continue to go forward with this case," said defense attorney Joe Cheshire.

Wouldn't that kind of be, well, essential, if not mandatory, for a prosecuting attorney to do?

Nifong should not only be disbarred, but prosecuted for misconduct.
