Grayson Kelly Testimony

Currently testifying: Grayson Kelly, a deputy attorney general of NC, summarizing the report of the special prosecutors.

Kelly's testimony lasted less than five minutes--it was symbolism, essentially giving the AG office's imprimatur to the State Bar's case.

Cross examination was lame. So Nifong turned over everything to AG. What a nice guy.

From what I could see, KC is a classic "hunt 'n peck" typist... albeit, a quick one. Think what he could do with proper typist training.

Did Freedman and Witt not understand that this trial would go into Mikey's activities with a fine-tooth comb? What cretins they are if they allowed themselves to be so embarrassed!

Could anyone see the Duffer (our man not on the street) when Brad bashed him. Thanks Brad

I wouldn't blame Freedman and Witt, it is most likely that Nifong wanted to go to trial OR that the bar had no interest in offering him any deal if he voluntarily stepped down, etc.

The state is out to make an example of him, not even so much becuase he IS a criminal but because as we see "Nifonged" and the Duke case are now part of all defense team's aresenal.

They have to string him up in order to restore the status quo and ensure that the damage he has done to prosecuting crime IN GENERAL is mitigated.

That is why he will be disbarred or lose his law license for at least 5 years. The DA's, sherriff's, US attorney's can't afford this numbskull giving them all a bad name.

He's only here to minimize the
term of loss of license (if not disbarred) right? His lawyers said there is no escape, we have to try to minimize punishment.
Otherwise, why would any of them subject themselves to this humiliation. Freeman doesn't even care anymore, from the sound of him.

Also, there is no telling what kind of lies Nifong has told them.

Everyone gets a lawyer, though. I only blame defense attorneys when they propose totally insane or disgusting theories....like the dead woman consented to sex after the burglar came through the window and then someone else strangled her...or 'the cops framed me'.

If their strategy was to say, for example, that the boys were guilty of rape and Joe Cheshire had used his influence to get the AG to drop the charges and the bar to bring this case, then I would say they are scum....

They have so far, not really maligned anyone, though the email and broomstick was pretty gratuitious.

Great Nifang called the evidence non inculpatory so he did not have to turn over evidence Non inculpatory = exculpatory!!!

Depends upon what your definition of "is" is.

"the cops framed me" doesn't sound like such an insane theory anymore, to me.

It's going to be a long and sleepless night for the 'Fong. There really is no defense. Let's say that Levicy and CGM were to be taken at face value (a stretch). That does not absolve Nifong one iota. Even if he believed CGM was raped, the bottom line is that he cannot just pick three guys out of a hat, ignore alibi evidence etc. That's what building a case is about.

Of course, the 'Fong can't even argue that--not after this debacle. His attorneys are fools if they try. The only other thing is to smear these guys, but that's not going to fly--why, because someone has to do it. Who is going to testify--Nifong? Levicy? Gottlieb?

In order to make a decision to press charges (let alone continue them for so long), there has to be evidence that (a) a crime occurred and (b) you have the right guy. Part (a) got flimiser and flimsier (inconsistent statements etc.) and (b) never really existed, unless you count BS lineups that no one thinks were constitutional or accurate.

That is the fundamental truth of these proceedings. Everything else is show--even the publicity is only a real problem (not saying how it should be) because these guys are so demonstrably innocent.

Did the camera pan to KC?

I wasn't able to check out Court TV except in termittently and must have missed it.

I did see Collin and Reade and some of their family members.

There's always some loony woman sitting behind Collin and when the camera panned his way she sat there with a wild-eyed expression as if somehow she was the issue.

Too funny.
