Nifong Folds


Durham DA Mike Nifong has dismissed the rape charges against three Duke lacrosse players. That means the case is done, right?

Not so fast.

There are still sexual assault and kidnapping charges pending. One guesses. Actually, who knows what comes next in this mess. But it certainly seems impossible to sustain the other charges.

The defense is not going to plea bargain with Nifong, that much is certain.
