Duke LAX Accuser Back In The News

So it goes like this…

The woman who authorities said falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape four years ago gets pissed off at her boyfriend and tosses his clothes in the bathtub and then sets them on fire…Hey, it’s in the bathtub. Safety first. What can go wrong?

Oops, it turns out she has this little moment of pyromania while her three children and two police officers were inside the apartment. Oops.

Long story short, she has been found guilty of misdemeanor child abuse and damaging property.

A Durham County jury on Friday convicted 32-year-old Crystal Mangum of contributing to child abuse or neglect, injury to personal property, and resisting a public officer stemming from a February confrontation with her live-in boyfriend. Mangum was sentenced to time already served before she was released on bail earlier this year.

The jury deadlocked 9-3 on a felony arson charge, and Superior Court Judge Abraham Jones declared a mistrial.
