Disbarred District Attorney Mike Nifong's troubles may be far from over. And that may be the case for several individuals that were closely involved in the Duke Lacrosse case, according to Eyewitness News sources.
While Attorney General Roy Cooper is considering a request to investigate public officials that handled the case, ABC 11 Reporter Tamara Gibbs has learned federal investigators are collecting testimony and other court documents from Mike Nifong's ethics trial and his recent contempt hearing.
Sources say the U.S. Attorney's Office Middle District of North Carolina is considering whether to investigate the case. Investigators are trying to determine whether the civil rights of the former defendants were violated. Numerous calls to the U.S. Attorney's Office were not returned.
I suspect that not only Nifong but also Sgt. Mark Gottlieb and his superiors, ex-Investigator Linwood Wilson, Dr. Brian Meehan, and SANE nurse Tara Levicy will sleep poorly tonight.
