Yet we'll do the same thing about the attorneys and the woman.
I heard the Defense Lawyer speaking today and he said one of the reasons they were having a hard time bringing charges against the woman is not only did her story change so much, but they are of the opinion she believed all of them. It is possible she is simply mentally ill.
I'm not sure how you sue the state over this? I mean it stands to reason the system makes mistakes all the time. Why wouldn't everyone who goes to trial and receives a not guilty verdict not go after the system for false persecution?
I know we have a couple of lawyers in here. Maybe the parents can pursue a civil case against the Prosecutor, but I'm not sure about that let alone going after the state?
I would go with the line of , Nifong willing withheld evidence that would have a direct outcome on the trial , he was working for the state while doing this , the state failed to provide oversite for a fair trail for these young men ... may not hold up i na criminal court , but you have a shot in civil court
