32 year old Crystal Mangum, the woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape in March 2006 has been found guilty by a North Carolina jury of 3 counts of child abuse, injury to personal property, and resisting arrest.

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.
The jury deadlocked 9-3 on a felony arson charge, and Superior Court Judge Abraham Jones declared a mistrial.
What are the chances that this woman’s name would ever be referenced again after the saga that was the Duke Lacrosse rape scandal?
