Another Nifong's Denial Proven False

The News and Observer is reporting that defense attorneys for the Duke Three have filed a new motion again requesting additional discovery that appears to have been withheld from them. Despite DA Nifong’s repeated denials that any records were kept at Durham Access, where the accuser first made her claims against the accused lacrosse players in response to a staffers direct question, at least one of the three women that the accuser interacted with took hand written notes of her observations. It should be noted that it was previously reported that the Durham Police Department failed to interview either of the three Durham Access staffers after the day the Hoax began.

From the N&O:
Gerri Lomuriel Wilkes, who was working at the center the morning the accuser came in, took hand-written notes of her observations . . .”
“District Attorney Mike Nifong has told defense lawyers during discovery hearings that no notes were made at the center, that only a log existed from there.”
This further revelation that there remains additional discovery which Mr. Nifong had specifically denied even existed comes as no surprise. It does, however, shed light on the “Nifong must have something” theme. It appears that Mr. Nifong does have something after all. Something as in an awful lot of discovery that has been withheld from the defense, Something as in terminally enflamed pants, and Something as in an awfully guilty conscience.

Just how many times does this man need to be caught by his own deception before this Hoax ends?Publish

I guess the old Nifong stall continues. Here is where we see if Judge Smith follows in the footsteps of Judges Stephens and Titus.

In fairness, we don't know for sure yet that the notes exist. Or that Nifong had any reason to know about them.

I agree that Nifong is a scumbag, but it's important not to rush to judgment on any particular issue.

The woman says she took the notes. That pretty much shows the notes, at the very least, existed at some point of time. Where did they go?

We are dealing with criminal behavior. That is the only way to describe what Liefong has done. And yet, he draws a salary and has the utmost respect of the mainstream media.

One thing everyone should learn from this case is that saying it don't make it so. It's possible that this "notetaker" is a lazy incompetent who never takes notes even though she is supposed to and is lying/misremembering in an attempt to cover her *ss.

What's "possible" - no, "probable" - is that Nifong got caught again trying to hide discovery. Just like he did on the date rape drug test. Untill I know for sure otherwise, I'm calling Nifong the liar on this one...

I'd like to see just one documented lie, or even a gross misrepresentation of the facts in this case, put forth by the defense. On the other hand, Nifong.... well you know.

The defense repeatedly requested documentation from Durham Access, how can this be seen anything except the prosecution NOT pursuing evidence?? Exculpatory is yet to be seen... but I'd bet the defense wouldn't have released this information if it was not exculpatory.

I'd say Nifong had plenty of reason to know about the notes. Primary among those reasons reason might have been their relevancy to a rape/hoax investigation. No attempt appears to have been made to interview this woman by LE or the DA's investigator. At the very least, he hid from this evidence as he hid from examining the AV's phone, as he hid from viewing expulpatory evidence from the defense, as he hid from meeting with the defense attorneys, and as he hid from interviewing the LAX players after they retained counsel. It appears the only thing Nifong hasn't hid from were the TV cameras during his campaign TV tour.

Nifong deserves NO benefit of the doubt, about ANYTHING...so, if the woman says she took notes, she took notes in my book, until I see otherwise (Nifong saying she didn't simply won't count)...remember when Nifong asked, rather incredulously I might add, why the defense would think they would be entitled to the AV's cell phone information? *That* information *only* stopped the clock on HIS bogus rape timeline...I have a feeling that these notes might do further harm to his case...couldn't happen to a more repugnant man, imo...
