    EXCERPT

    This morning for the first time in his professional life, Duke lacrosse prosecutor Mike Nifong will enter a North Carolina courtroom and sit at the defense table.

    Nifong is facing charges of prosecutorial misconduct from the North Carolina State Bar for his handling of the infamous Duke rape case. If found guilty, the veteran prosecutor could be disbarred and consequently removed from his office as Durham County district attorney.

    That's the least that should be done with him, and probably the most too. He seems responsible for a lot of grief and costs. After his disbarment, I'm thinking there will be big lawsuits by parents of the accused.
