The latest in the Duke lacrosse rape case? Nothing less than DA Mike Nifong hiding exculpatory evidence from defense attorneys and — more to the point — falsifying his own rape case. The N&O has the details:
A private laboratory hired by the prosecution in the Duke lacrosse case failed to report that it found DNA from multiple males in the accuser’s body and underwear, according to a defense motion filed today.
The lab, DNA Security of Burlington, found that the DNA did not match the three defendants, their lacrosse teammates or anyone else who submitted their DNA to police, including the accuser’s boyfriend.
The N&O goes on to construct a timeline from the defense motion on the suppressed DNA tests. Suffice it to say that there remains absolutely no reason to go forward with this case and every reason to immediately remove Mike Nifong from office and prosecute him to the full extent allowed by law.
