The North Carolina State Bar has granted Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong a five-day extension to file a written response to the charges. The charges stem from his handling of the Duke lacrosse sexual assault case. Nifong's response to the ethics charges was due Friday, but the bar moved the deadline to Wednesday because one of Nifong's attorneys was ill. The bar has accused Nifong of withholding evidence from lawyers defending three lacrosse players charged with sexually assaulting a stripper.
