Duke lacrosse case prosecutor surrenders license

It was a few hours after a disciplinary panel of the North Carolina State Bar found that Mike Nifong, the Durham district attorney handling the Duke lacrosse team rape case, had withheld crucial evidence from the defendants and that engaged in fraud and deceit.

And it was just a few minutes before the panel was going to announce his punishment.

Nifong's attorney announced about an hour ago that his client had decided himself that disbarment was the proper sanction and that he was surrendering his law license to the NC bar.

The Washington Post has the full story.
