Nifong has been disbarred. Not saying he didn't deserve it, but his life as a lawyer and a prosecuter is over... At least for now... Not to mention the accused lacrosse players are going after him. Nifong will be lucky not to see jail time and/or be wiped out financially.
Speaking of the three young lacrosse players, their families are hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions of dollars deep in legal debt from fighting an unjust accusation. Their reputations will always be marred due to false claims... Innocent or not, that stigma will always be attatched to them.
The Duke lacrosse team lost a season. A winning season. Every player on that team got punished by losing time out of their lives doing what they were good at.
The coach, Mike Pressler had to resign. He is now coaching at another college up north, but it's not Duke with the prestige that holds for some.
The university lost face, as well as an undisclosed settlement to the accused players.
What about the accuser? The girl who started all this. The stripper who made up a story in order to get out of a public intoxication ticket and possibly a DUI. The girl who falsely cried rape after having consensual sex with at least three other men within a 24 hour period. The person with the record which included theft, larceny, drug charges, attempted assault charges and so on. The girl who hurt Duke University in general, cost a team a season, cost a coach his job, cost three men their reputations and tons of money, and destroyed the career and life of a district attorney. What about Crystal Magnum?
Nothing. That's right. Nothing. No charge for filing a false police report. Not even a reinstatement of the PI or DUI. Nothing. The only one to walk away from this no worse for wear... The one who started it all.
Now, tell me how you feel about justice.
