The State Bar of North Carolina has filed a bar complaint against Mike Nifong. If found guilty of the alleged conduct, Nifong would face suspension or disbarment.
When the Duke defendants hired lawyers, Nifong snidely remarked that they must be guilty. Only guilty people, according to Nifong, need lawyers. I take this to mean that Nifong will not retain counsel to assist in his defense. Right? After all, he is innocent of these charges and therefore need not hire a lawyer.
