Duke Lacrosse: Nifong Slapped With Ethics Charges

It always looks a bit strange to me when I read a story that states that anyone has been slapped with ethics charges. There really should be some antonym of that word, which would be perfect for Durham DA Mike Nifong

The North Carolina State Bar has filed an ethics complaint against Duke lacrosse prosecutor Mike Nifong.

The 17-page complaint accuses him of breaking four rules of professional conduct when speaking to reporters about the high-profile case. The complaint lists more than 100 examples of public statements Nifong made to the media, including WRAL, since March.

Among the rules, the bar complaint says Nifong violated is a prohibition on making "comments that have a substantial likelihood of heightening public condemnation of the accused."

Another of the rules Nifong was charged with breaking forbids "dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." The bar said that when DNA testing failed to find any evidence that any lacrosse player raped the accuser, Nifong told a reporter the players might have used a condom.

Finally, someone/group is doing something. Now, it is time that the office of the NC Attorney General become involved.
