DURHAM, N.C. -- A woman who authorities said falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape four years ago has been found guilty by a North Carolina jury 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.

Karma.

Or - given time a person’s true personality shines through.

But we all knew that from the get go.

What ever happened to the prosecutor in the lacrosse case?

Nah, the Duke rapes and subsequent character assassination destroyed her faith in society and caused what amounts to post traumatic stress syndrome. She’s not responsible for her actions.

At least that will be the Left’s take on it. Wait for it.

This is not her first child abuse conviction. If they haven’t taken her kids now, they never will.

Police said Mangum piled her boyfriend's clothing into a bathtub and set it on fire while her three children and two police officers were inside the apartment.

First, she is obviously not too intelligent.

Second, I am surprised she didn't say a white guy came in and set the clothes on fire.

The last I heard he was dis-barred by the State and relieved of his duties as prosecutor. Dunno what happened to him after that—probably spent a lot of time in court testifying in the flood of lawsuits surrounding the “incident”.

Nifong was disbarred.

Don’t think he ever saw jail time, but I believe the disbarment, along with all the civil suits have left him ~ and subsequently his family ~ for broke.

That guy would have sent those boys to jail to rot, and you know why; because all those boys were sons of privilege, they all came from “wealthy” families.

Can you imagine someone being hated for being wealthy?

He spent a day in jail. The players’ civil suit is still going forward, though Nifong is more or less bankrupt.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Nifong

On August 31, 2007, [Judge] Smith held Nifong in criminal contempt of court, and sentenced him to one day in jail and a $500 fine.[2].

On September 7, 2007, Nifong reported to the Durham County jail to serve a one-day jail sentence for contempt of court. He was held alone in a cell for his protection.[86]

No shortage of villains in that story but the biggest villain in the picture was the ordinary little clown living in and around Durham NC who voted to return Nifong to office in the fall of 07 AFTER the whole world knew what was happening.

THAT was inexcusable. Duke would have to pack up and move before I'd even consider sending a kid to school there. One possibility which has been suggested would be Emporia Va.

I don’t know why you’d insult Emporia by subjecting it to Duke. :)

I’ve lived here in Durham since the start of 2007, and I’m not surprised that Nifong got re-elected. The county has a large black population and is completely, totally, and utterly dominated by racist blacks and their guilty liberal academic enablers. Parts of Durham are complete no-go areas regardless of your skin color due to crime, the city continues to raise taxes despite a recession, and yet the same usual suspects get re-elected because of their skin color and the (D) by their name.

The only thing that’s kept this area from descending into being the Detroit of North Carolina is the massive jobs engine of Research Triangle Park, and the fact that Duke (the county’s biggest employer) is a steady and mostly recession-proof source of jobs and tax base. In a climate like this, it’s totally unsurprising to me that somebody like Crystal Mangum could’ve gotten the traction she did on her charges, or that Mike Nifong would’ve run with them to get re-elected...the black population would love seeing three “rich white kids from up north” get railroaded, and the whackjob professors in their ivory towers would love seeing “privileged athletes” get railroaded.

I promise you this, Mike Nifong could try to run for county DA again and he’d get no less than 30 percent of the vote. And the only reason he’d lose is because he didn’t get a conviction against the lacrosse players.

The 88 Duke professors who supported the prosecution/persecution should be removed—tenure or no tenure.

Duke should just rename itself “Liberty and Justice University” and fire those clowns.

Otherwise it remains an enabler of evil liars.

The only right way to look at Durham NC would be through the crosshairs of a Norden bombsight; I wouldn’t send a kid to school within 50 miles of the place.

Unfortunately, in the 20-some plus years since the gag, the UN has reclassified “hos” as “sex workers” and your reference of the term “ho” qualifies you for more jail time than Nifong ever saw.

My dad’s girlfriend works at a hospital in Durham. Horrific. Recently, she had some big fat negro nurse with an attitude block the entire hallway with her fat ass and when my dad’s girlfriend was walking with a patient and politely asked her to please make room so people could get by, old fatty put her meatpaws on her fat hips, took a step toward my dad’d girlfriend, started the head shake and said belligerently, “Well dey jes need tuh go to anuthuh hallway.” Being black and union makes her virtually bulletproof and the whites walk on eggshells to avoid the confrontations that they seek out. There are many more situations she has told me about. I just don’t see how any decent people continue to work there.

Personally, I would perform my own heart surgery with a rusty butterknife rather than go to that hospital in that city.

EXTREMELY common. I call it the “golden uterus syndrome.” Today’s family courts are totally anti-father (other than using father as a wallet) and 1000% pro custodial biomom. She can do NO wrong. So much for the “best interest of the child.” With the whacked out child support laws and “give druggy mom another chance”, it’s the “best interest of the mom.”

what’s still incredible is that the POS couldn’t be convicted of felony arson when starting a FIRE in an apartment with her kids present!!!

hung jury 9-3 on that charge

and this “Wagstaff” creature, some former City Council clown who managed to get herself hit with a contempt of court citation, will continue to defend the depravities of the Nifong/Crystal Magnum hoax to the end of her pitiful days....

Everyone associated with perpetrating and defending that hideous hoax is scum unfit for human society.
