See Durham-in-Wonderland for a summary of the North Carolina Attorney General's press conference.
The Attorney General was very clear that the players are innocent and that D.A. Mike Nifong was a "rogue prosecutor" who may be guilty of criminal misconduct.
My compliments to Durham-in-Wonderland's KC Johnson, as well as John in Carolina and the other bloggers, reporters, and commentators who worked so hard to understand and explain this case to the public. I believe they played a key role in Nifong currently facing charges from the Bar -- and possibly, in future, the State -- and in exonerating these players.
Justice at last.
Update: John in Carolina raises an interesting point I'd wondered about when listening to the press conference: Where was Nifong's staff during the last year? Why didn't one Assistant D.A. come forward and blow the whistle? Did they place career over justice? Did Nifong act completely alone?
Further Update: The transcript of the Attorney General's statement has been posted at Michelle Malkin's site.
