Author Cohan believes that Nifong was disbarred on a "red herring" and that he only made "mistakes not misconduct." Having read the opinion in the Darryl Howard case and having read a great deal about this case, I find in my opinion the author's conclusions to be incorrect if not bizarre.
Author Cohan has also been stating in interviews that the accuser, Crystal Mangum is "clear thinking" and that he believes her that "something happened." Ms. Mangum had troubled life long before that fateful night, including an arrest for trying to run down a police officer and stealing a taxi. She has since gone on trial for arson and later been convicted of second degree murder.
Author Cohan claims there is an "incredible amount of evidence" that "something happened" but then he laments that he "cannot know" what or who, etc. did what to whom. He admits "no one can know." This "incredible amount of evidence" does not appear in his book. He also admits that he hasn't seen the case file or even talked to the state investigators. Sounds like the vaguest of smears to say you can be sure of something that you admit you can't know.
A nonfiction author's book rests on the judgement and credibility of its author. Author Cohan's many public statements cast doubt on both and also on his book.
P.S. Today, KC Johnson has an interesting piece on Cohan's last minute deletions from his book.
