Former Duke Prosecutor Faces New Ethics Charges

ABC News reported Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong has been charged with new ethics violations for his conduct on the Duke lacrosse sex assault case. The North Carolina Bar filed an amended complaint today, accusing Nifong of withholding DNA evidence from the defense and making misrepresentations to the presiding judge in the case.

I am happy the North Carolina Bar is going after him, but all they can do is disbar him. Why is there not a Special Prosecutor looking at Criminal charges against Nifong? He should be in jail, not the three boys from Duke.
The bar has accused Nifong of conduct that involves "dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation." Nifong also allegedly violated a rule that "prohibits an attorney from knowingly making false statements of material fact."
