Nifong Apologizes

Disgraced former prosecutor Mike Nifong says there is "no credible evidence" three Duke lacrosse players committed any of the crimes he accused them of more than a year ago.

Nifong for the first time offered a complete and
unqualified apology.

The apology came as a judge began the process of considering
whether to hold the former Durham County district attorney in
criminal contempt of court for his handling of the discredited
lacrosse case.

The apology was accepted by attorneys for the three falsely
accused players, who previously had rejected Nifong's attempts to
make amends.

Nifong faces up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.00 if he is found in contempt.
