I’m really steamed about what the Duke rape accuser has done now. She’s published a book about the alleged incident. What a POS!
She said she wrote the book not for the money, but to inform others about what happened. She wished there’d been a trial.
I call BS Ms. Tawana Brawley wannabe. You want the cash.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) —The woman who prosecutors determined falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape maintains in a new memoir that she was attacked, a claim that provoked an angry lawsuit threat from one player’s family.
Crystal Mangum, who appeared publicly Thursday for the first time since making the allegations more than two years ago, says in her book being made available online Friday that she is not “looking forward to opening old wounds” but that she had to defend herself…
Mangum’s remarks drew an immediate rebuke from attorneys, and the family of one exonerated player said they were considering a lawsuit. Jim Cooney, who represented player Reade Seligmann in the criminal case, said attorneys would review the contents of the book.
“For 2 1/2 years, this woman has attempted to destroy Reade’s life,” Cooney said. “We aim to put a stop to it.”…
The state’s investigation found there was no DNA or medical evidence, or witness accounts, that confirmed Mangum’s story. The inconsistencies in Mangum’s account, the state found, “were so significant and so contrary to the evidence that the State had no credible evidence that an attack occurred in the house that night.”
Seligmann’s father, Phil Seligmann, called Mangum’s comments “simply a pathetic attempt to further her need to remain in the public eye at the expense of demonstrably innocent individuals.”
“Her incoherent passages are not based on facts, but are quite simply false ramblings,” Seligmann said in a statement. “She ignores all of the verifiable facts of the case.
“No crime of any kind took place involving Ms. Mangum or any member of the Duke men’s lacrosse team. We are presently evaluating all available legal options. If Ms. Mangum and those associated with her continue to slander Reade, we will have no choice and will not hesitate to utilize these options
Don’t buy the book. Don’t give her the time of day. Don’t give her anything but lawsuits in her face. I hope those boys sue the snot out of her.
