Former Nifong Assistant Charged With Making False Domestic Violence Claim

A North Carolina attorney has been charged with making false and misleading allegations  in order to obtain a domestic violence protective order ("DVPO") against a person with whom she had had a romantic relationship.

The complaint alleges that there was "no basis in fact" for the testimony presented over the course of four days and that the court had "found [her] testimony completely non-credible and dismissed [her] DVPO complaint."

According to this post at Durham-In-Wonderland, the attorney had served as a assistant district attorney in Mike Nifong's office. (Mike Frisch)
