Here's the latest from Cash Michaels on Mike Nifong's woes and the lacrosse case. Meanwhile, as you probably heard this week, Barack Obama suggested that an investigation into Nifong's handling of the case was in order, which didn't go over well with Alton Maddox, one of the attorneys for Tawana Brawley, who was disbarred for his role in the case. Wikipedia says this about the Brawley case:
"In the decision, the grand jury noted many problems with Brawley's story. Among these were the results of the rape kit, which did not indicate sexual assault. Also, despite her claim of having been held captive for days, Brawley was not suffering from exposure, was well nourished, and appeared to have brushed her teeth recently. There were no burns on her body, despite her clothing being charred. A shoe she was wearing was cut through, yet she had sustained no injuries to her foot. Testimony from her schoolmates indicated that she had attended a local party during the time of her supposed abduction, and one witness claimed to have observed Brawley climbing into the garbage bag. An ex-boyfriend of Brawley's told Newsday that Brawley had admitted making the attack up."
Despite recent reports that the special prosecutors were very close to dismissing charges, there is no sign that this is the case.
