WRAL reports:

Defense attorneys for three Duke lacrosse players are expected to file a motion Friday asking a judge to enter criminal sanctions against disbarred Durham prosecutor Mike Nifong.

Nifong was disbarred June 16 by a State Bar disciplinary committee for his handling of the Duke lacrosse rape case. The committee unanimously agreed with the Bar on 27 of 32 charges, including the most serious allegations — that Nifong’s actions involved “dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation.”

Three men — Reade Seligmann, David Evans and Collin Finnerty — were charged with rape, sexual assault and kidnapping in connection to an off-campus party in March 2006. All charges against the three were dropped in April 2007 after the state Attorney General Roy Cooper declared them innocent.

If the motion is granted, Nifong could face a possible fine and/or jail time.

While we’re on the Duke case, reader Maurice sent me a heads-up on a galling headline in the local Duke Chronicle last week:

“Duke announces settlement with indicted laxers.”

Writes Maurice: ‘How about “Innocent Laxers’ or ‘Wrongly Indicted Laxers’ or even ‘Vindicated Laxers?’ If we needed a further example of how the media contributed to the injustice to which these gentlemen were subjected, this is it. The Chronicle’s editors should print a retraction and issue an apology for continuing to slander these three upstanding young men.”

Bob Parks names the shameful “Duke 88” faculty members who hung the innocent Duke lacrosse players out to dry.
