Mike Nifong, April 12:
To the extent that I made judgments that ultimately proved to be incorrect, I apologize to the three students that were wrongly accused. I also understand that whenever someone has been wrongly accused, the harm caused by the accusations might not be immediately undone merely by dismissing them. It is my sincere desire that the actions of Attorney General Cooper will serve to remedy any remaining injury that has resulted from these cases.
The “actions of Attorney General Cooper” included a public declaration of actual innocence—i.e., nothing happened.
Mike Nifong, yesterday:
Four times after issuing his "apology," Nifong described Crystal Mangum as the "victim"--and, as the N&O noted, he did so eight times overall in the course of his testimony.
I think something happened in that bathroom, but it was not a sexual assault. It could have been a non-sexual assault or intimidation. Something happened to make everybody leave that scene very quickly.
