Another “knowingly false statement[s] of material fact made in connection with a disciplinary matter”

In his January 16, 2006 letter to the State Bar, Defendant Nifong describes meeting with Dr. Brian Meehan on only two occasions, April 21 and May 12. In previous posts, we have detailed the disgraced District Attorney’s prior admissions to meeting with co-conspirator Meehan on April 10 and the improbability that the stumbling Defendant truly does not recall the monumental event. It appears, however, that the weak attempt to erase the April 10 meeting is not the only misrepresentation Defendant Nifong makes in his letter to the State Bar with regard to his communication with Dr. Meehan and the conspiracy to wthhold evidence from the framed Hoax defendants.
.
After falsely stating in his January 16 letter to the bar that he only met with Dr. Brian Meehan on two occasions, he extends his misrepresentations to include a denial of any other communication with his co-conspirator.

"My only other communication with Dr. Meehan involving this case occurred after I received defendants' December 13 motion. I faxed a copy of the motion (without attachments) to Dr. Meehan on the same day and then called him on December 14, to find out whether he would be available to testify on December 15. I did not discuss the subject matter of the motion with him at any time prior to his testimony."

In his court testimony on December 15, Dr. Meehan clearly indicates, under oath, that he did have additional communication with Defendant Nifong, specifically multiple telephone conversations.

EXAMINATION BY MR. KINGSBERY:

Doug Kingsbery: Dr. Meehan, your discussion with Mr. Nifong about what would be disclosed in your May 12 report, was that a face-to-face meeting?

Brian Meehan: I honestly don't recall if we talked about it face-to-face. I know we at least talked about it on the phone and we may have talked about it face-to-face. (December 15, 2006 Hearing transcript Page 86, line 23 to Page 87, line 5)

Doug Kingsbery: And then you had telephone conversations with him, as well?

Brian Meehan: With him and members of his staff.

Doug Kingsbery: Okay. And it's possible that you discussed in each of those communications what would be disclosed in your May 12 report?

Brian Meehan: It is possible. (December 15, 2006 Hearing transcript Page 87, line 12-18)

It appears that Defendant Nifong’s attempt to disguise his phone conversations with co-conspirator Meehan is another entry on the long list of his “knowingly false statements of material fact made in connection with a disciplinary matter.”

Is Nifong's feeble brain capable of understanding that, unlike his meetings where attendees NEVER take notes, court testimony is recorded? As such, people who are willing to do some research can expose his lies with ease.

Come on, Cooper, drop this farce of a case so we can get on with the real sport -- seeing Nifong and the other enablers of this hoax be given the opportunity to trade their worldly possessions for orange jumpsuits.

Fong parses again - he stated that those were the only times he and Meehan talked about the case perhaps those other times they only talked about the cost of testing, or the right of privacy for alternative suspects uh I mean unknown Johns whose DNA is found in a hypothetical sex worker's colorectal region(generally)or maybe they talked about CGM's children, or where to get the best BBQ in the Triangle area. . .

The State Bar HAS to hammer Nifong...not because they really care about what he did...simply because he was so stupid about it he got caught. They back away from this, the USDOJ WILL come in...then they'll look even stupider than Nifong has made the NC "justice" system look already......

Nifong is quite capable of understanding what he is doing. He knows the system. The system doesn't work unless someone possesses a will to make it work. The only part of the system that will work is just that part, its will. Given any excuse it will not work. Look at the verbage that a part time hooker/dancer has caused. She is untouchable because she is a female/black. Everyone else must bend over In the beginning of it when no one saw fit to salvage a community's sanity with some common sense.
The legal system in North Carolina is only slightly more corrupt than it is elsewhere. It has proven in this case that its appointments to several offices involved are politics as usually. Nifong is just doing his "exotic dance" around a big pole of legalisms he is creating. No, he knows what he is doing.

You get sent to jail, not for what you did but because you were stupid enough to get caught.

I hope he and Officer Barbrady (Gottlieb) like orange...

I am shocked that Nifong's attorneys are permitting him to dig a deeper hole. He would have been far better throwing himself to the mercy of the Bar. Instead, he lies to cover up other lies to cover up other lies.

Are there any honest people in authority in North Carolina?

Hello Mr. Anderson... Sorry, had a Matrix moment, though I'm certainly no Agent Smith. Anyway, I know about corrupt politics. I'm from coastal Alabama, and we routinely have public officials end up wearing stripes. Also, we're not far from New Orleans, the town that reelected that tool Ray Nagin. That said, this is shocking even by the standards to which I am accustomed.
