Arrest warrant issued for Mangum in Durham

Posted August 26, 2010

— Crystal Mangum, the Durham woman infamous for her false accusation of rape against three Duke University lacrosse players in 2006, could be headed to back to jail on charges stemming from a domestic dispute in February.

Mangum was charged Feb. 18 with attempted first-degree murder, five counts of arson, assault and battery, communicating threats, three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, injury to personal property, identity theft and resisting a public officer.

Durham police said she assaulted her boyfriend, Milton Walker, threatened to stab him and set some clothes on fire.

Mangum claimed that the pair had an argument and that he hit her, prompting one of her three children to call 911.

After her arrest, Mangum was released on bond and was living with her mother. She was subject to electronic monitoring and was allowed supervised visitation with her three children, ages 10, 9 and 3, with the approval of social services.

Durham police ordered her arrested again Wednesday and held her on $150,000 bond for failure to comply with the visitation order.

    Maybe those Duke professors will bail her out.

    I guess she's not using that degree (in criminal justice no less) that the Rev. Jesse Jackson paid for her to get, huh?!
