Nifong appears likely to face more troubles

RALEIGH (AP) - His law license lost and his reputation in tatters, Mike Nifong, it seems, can fall no further. But the disbarred prosecutor who committed “intentional prosecutorial misconduct” in his pursuit of the Duke lacrosse rape case faces an uncertain - and probably troubled - future.
