DURHAM, N.C. - The prosecutor [Mike Nifong] who led the now-discredited rape case against three Duke University lacrosse players was held in criminal contempt of court Friday for lying to a judge when pursuing charges against the athletes.
So, just as did the town drunk Otis Campbell of Mayberry, Nifong will spend a day in jail. His career as a lawyer is over. And, deservedly so.
Maybe he will be able to get a job cleaning up after the elephants during a Barnum and Bailey circus parade. That would be more befitting of his conduct in the Duke Lacrosse case.
