RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 25 (UPI) -- The North Carolina State Bar sent former District Attorney Mike Nifong a bill Friday for almost $9,000 for a court reporter at three depositions.
The depositions, including one of Nifong, were part of the investigation into his handling of the rape charges against three Duke University lacrosse players, The Raleigh News & Observer reported.
Nifong resigned as Durham County district attorney after the bar panel recommended that he be disbarred. He is scheduled to appear in court next week to respond to a criminal court charge.
In a case that attracted international attention, the three lacrosse players were cleared by the state attorney general’s office, which took over the investigation from Nifong.
