Nifong’s Nightmare … Duke Lacrosse Rape Accuser Changes Story Again


Can the Duke Lacrosse Rape case get any worse? The accuser has yet changed her story Duke_LAXagain. Its not like the changes impact the case though. The accuser now seems to have her account again about when the alleged gang rape occurred, who attacked her and how. What an unmitigated disater this has become. It is hard to imagine that this case will go on much longer.

Defense attorneys filed the statement in court today, arguing that it was more evidence that the woman is an unreliable witness.

The woman adjusted the timing of the assault to earlier in the evening, a time point preceding the well-documented alibi of one accused player, Reade Seligmann. The defense, however, introduced yet more alibi evidence for Seligmann: he was on the cell phone with his girlfriend during the height of the attack as the accuser now times it.


The new version of the events comes from a Dec. 21 interview by Linwood Wilson, chief investigator for Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong. The statement marked the first time anyone from the District Attorney’s office discussed the case with the woman since charges were filed in April. The interview came less than a week after a private laboratory director testified that he and Nifong agreed not to report DNA evidence favorable to the three accused players.

The statement layers new and contradictory accounts over the woman’s previous statements:

  • In her latest statement she said the attack ended at midnight.
  • In the latest statement, the woman says she arrived at the party at 11:10 p.m. on March 13 and that the rape began at 11:40 p.m.
  • The woman now said her alleged assailants used multiple names.
  • The accuser has changed her description of Evans.
  • In her recent statement, the woman said that Evans stood in front of her and made her perform sex on him. In past statements, she said that Seligmann did this. (News Observer)

      This sounds like another story I’ve followed. The accuser must be from a filthy little corrupt pathetic island!

      Lie after lie after lie! Must have learned from JVDS, Puddles and the 2K’s.

      I know many of you still blame the boys for having this degenerate party in the first place — but I think the accuser AND the DA have committed FAR more serious crimes here than the boys. Crimonal charges should be filed on both of them.

      Young men do stupid things in college. These are not the first, and won’t be the last bunch of kids to have a party and drink too much. They have certainly paid a price for their parting ways, as did their coach.
      Can Mr. Nifong be sued for malicious prosecution?

      You are cordially invited to a double wedding. The first couple will be Mike Nifong and his lovely bride Karin Janssen. Of course, they may be better known respectively as the prosecutor who never saw a case weak enough not to prosecute and the prosecutor who has never saw a case strong enough to prosecute. The second couple will be Joran Van der Sloot and Crystal Gail Magnum. Of course, Joran is a pathological liar who is a rapist and the lovely bride is a pathological liar who imagines she is a rape victim. They will be honeymooning in Aruba where it is expected that they will welcomed with open arms, the parade through the heart of Aruba will be lead by the New Black Panthers.

      Can’t a judge see,this so called victim contains more DNA than most health clinics.

      Who’s the daddy.How could she know.Does anyone remember when rape was hard to prove? MAN!Where does she rate on the credebility scale?This is crazy.

      “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice…” well you know the rest.

      Crystal (i.e. lying prostitute) has to not only remember what she said, she has to rely on a memory that was clouded by booze. She has to remember several versions of what seems like separate stories while worrying not to say anything that could get DA Nifong a chance to dump this whole mess right back on her.

      Nifong has to work with no evidence that supports his wild claims of a rape, while trying to exit this case without ending up in prison or loosing his shirt in civil court.

      They would have to be geniuses to weave their way out of this web of lies; thus far neither has shown to be any kind of genius.

      Mr Justice; OH NOOOOOOOOOOO! What a horrible thought I just had-these people having children themselves! I know; we’ll send Angelina Jolie to adopt them all.

      The clowns involved had not the moral compass nor the integrity of a common horsefly. The trollop and the Dukes of Haphazard truly are truly deserving of one another.

      The DA and his minions, visions of political advantages in view, made sacrificial lambs of these rowdy hellions and though unjustly, stood to gain until t’was discovered that the victim was cut from the same cloth as the “perpetrators” are.

      I do not believe they should be framed(unAmerican to do so) but at the same time it is verily difficult to exhibit sympathy for their own doings. …as one lays with dogs…I give a fiddlers’ folly to the lot of them!

      I’m thinking Mike Nifong will soon get a court order to test DNA from the entire Duke and NCCU football teams to identify the father of Crystal’s third bastard child.

      Angelina Jolie adopt me! I’m almost weaned – maybe you could help me with that!

      Did Pingpong submitt himself to a DNA test?

    12. Para2legal on January 12th, 2007 10:27 am

      Yep with her ever changing story Crystal just might be related to Joran. Joran’s story changed what – 15 times or more? Let’s see if she beats him.

    13. glad2bAmerican on January 12th, 2007 11:25 am

      All she had to do was keep updated to the Aruba case on how to get away with lying. It worked for Joran & Kalpoe Bros so far!!!!!!But hopefully their days will be numbered til justice is prevailed & so will hers.
