Skip to comments.Duke lacrosse accuser holds press conference to defend herself

With a motion bracelet strapped to her right ankle, Mangum, 31, held a press conference in front of a Savannah Avenue home this morning - where she is on house arrest - to defend herself against a February domestic violence arrest.
Mangum was arrested at her Lincoln Street home after police alleged that during an argument with her ex-boyfriend, she set the apartment on fire and tried to kill her now ex-boyfriend while her three young children and two Durham police officers were in the home.
I dont feel like Im going to get the justice that I deserve through the judicial system and I feel this my only and last means to reach out to the public and let them know that I did not set a fire that night, she said while sitting in front of Savannah Avenue residence, unable to even walk to the driveway. To let the public know that I am being unfairly treated due to preconceived notions that people have about me concerning another case. I feel like enough is enough.

She's right about that but not in the way she's thinking.
I see that she’s so famous now that she just goes by the one name....
Why isn’t she in prison ?
Isn’t she the one who was given a full scholarship by the NAACP after the Duke “incident”?
we all know what happened to the boy who cried wolf.
I doubt she even read ‘The boy who cried Wolf’.
Operative word being "boy" Different rules for BFs
Skank should get Nifong to be her mouthpiece.
It must be a helluva thing to go through life with rocks in your head.
I really do pity this woman - but she seems to be crackers.
Maybe it's just you're a narcissist. Do you EVER take responsibility for your own actions... as Dr. Phil would say "You gotta own it".
Didn't she already have him as such once before?
Oh, the best line from the article:
I dont feel like Im going to get the justice that I deserve through the judicial system and I feel this my only and last means to reach out to the public and let them know that I did not set a fire that night, she said while sitting in front of Savannah Avenue residence, unable to even walk to the driveway.
Honeychild, if you'd gotten the justice you deserve instead of Roy Cooper going soft on your psycho ass, you'd be sitting in state prison on charges of perjury right now instead of under house arrest holding a "press conference."
So the press showed up to hear her defend herself. Nice. Where were they for the Lacrosse players?
“Isnt she the one who was given a full scholarship by the NAACP after the Duke incident?”
It was Jesse Jackson who gave her the full scholarship. If I remember correctly, her dream was to become a lawyer.
Full name was listed in the first paragraph (a one-liner), which did not appear in the posted synopsis. Thereafter only the last name was used. Standard AP style sheet rules.
Here’s a video of her talking the press in front of her home...also boyfriend in video...
