Duke Lacrosse Team Accuser Charged With Attempted Murder

There is a God, and his Justice keeps marching on. Crystal Magnum is the woman who tried to destroy a bunch of good and decent young men by falsely accusing them of sexual assault back in March, 2006. She falsely claimed that three students at Duke University committed the alleged assault. Now Magnum faces a slew of very serious charges that could put her behind bars for a long time. It was eventually proven not only that Magnum lied, but that the District Attorney, Michael Nifong, played fast and loose with the case. Nifong was later charged with 20 ethics violations and went to jail - for a mere 24 hours. The three young men went free, after they and their families went through a long period of hell. Today, Feb. 18, 2010, Durham police have charged Crystal Gail Mangum, 31, with attempting to kill her boyfriend early this morning. Mangum is the woman who wrongly accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape in 2006. A judge this morning ordered that she remain in jail on a $1 million bond. Wearing a white jail jumpsuit, Mangum kept her head down during her court appearance today and said nothing as the charges from this morning’s incident were read. More of this story at That ain't all. According to the New York Post, she was charged with attempted first-degree murder, five counts of arson, three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, identity theft (she apparently told authorities she was "Marella Mangum"), and more. Full article at After Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Nancy Grace and many of the Duke faculty assumed the three lacrosse players were guilty, and shamefully convicted them publicly, can we finally expect the long overdue apologies that have yet to be uttered? Will Jesse Jackson offer to give Magnum more money this time around? He won't, of course, because this time there's no political gain to be had by Jackson. It will be interesting to see how - or even if - Grace will cover this story in the continuing saga of Crystal Magnum, one very disgusting person.
