“You know it’s not the only case I have right now. I have two.”
"The conference said it had offered Nifong several different kinds of assistance in September, including additional assistant district attorneys and a practice jury. Nifong never responded to the offer, the group said."
The demand by the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys, a group comprised of the state's elected district attorneys, comes on the heels of formal charges against Defendant Nifong by the North Carolina State Bar. The statement, issued on behalf of the entire Conference, was signed by the groups seven officers: Gary Frank (Davidson County DA), Clark Everett (Pitt County DA), Tom Horner (Alleghany, Ashe, Wilkes, and Yadkin Counties DA), Branny Vickory (Wayne County DA), Tom Keith (Forsyth County DA), Ben David (Pender and New Hanover Counties DA), Jim Woodall (Orange Chatham Counties DA) each signed the statement.
Citing the the concerns expressed to the officers and many of the other elected District Attorneys, the NCCDA issued its statement which concludes with the following demand of "Mr." not "DA" Nifong:
"It is in the best interest of justice and the effective administration of criminal justice that Mr. Nifong immediately withdraw and recuse himself from the prosecution of these cases and request the cases be assigned to another prosecutorial authority."
