"Its unfair to her as well since there was some criminal activity going on with the lacross players she has a name and it is not former lacrosse accuser!" - zile1porkey
And the winner of today's absurd comment is above. Please explain what criminal activity was going on with the lacrosse players? What an absurd accusation! The lacrosse players are the victims of Mangum's lying. She should have been prosecuted for her false claims.
Let's hear some evidence to back up your assertion that the lacrosse players were involved in criminal activity. You have none. I thought so.

@zile1porkey, what is worse, having racial comments yelled at you, or being accused of rape? Being accused of rape is worse being you are guilty until proven innocent in the eyes of the press.

Its unfair to her as well since there was some criminal activity going on with the lacross players she has a name and it is not former lacrosse accuser! WRAL reporter get a new look on stories because this headline has been old.

And I'm with Uhavenoclu. I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall when that trial goes down. Nobody loves a good joke better than me

I think it's pretty unfair to the Duke lacrosse players that the media keeps referring to this waste of space as "lacrosse accuser". She has a name, and the accused have lives that I would bet are being led in a productive manner. We all know Crystal Mangum, by her name alone. Let it go.

duke u should be put on trial for thier presecution of the duke 3 the lacrosse team and the coach. if those 3 boys have been plain ole reguluar college kids from nc -- they'd be in prison for the next 30 yrs-- thats the justice we have in nc.

So she is representing herself huh? I hope Wral and others are allowed to film the trial for this will be a full blown comedy,get more ratings around here then the other moonshining buck wild Amish mafia fake reality shows.

If she'd have been given hard time on any of her previous crimes or convictions then that poor man would be alive today as she would have been in prison. Kinda sad that she's representing herself because then she'll have grounds for appeal for inadequate representation. Well, with any luck she'll get put away for a long time for this murder.

This murderer is CRYSTAL MAGNUM NOT lacrosse accuser. I, and apparently many others, are so sick of WRAL and others using that instead of her name! We ALL know what she did so don't need your help

I wonder how much dancing Grace is doing in jail.
doggypoos Jan 24, 5:46 p.m.
Give her 20 years and get it over with. Hopefully while she is locked up we will no longer here anything related to Duke and lacrosse. Time for this to go away.

Maybe she's using Nifong as a consultant

She is representing herself so that later she can appeal due to her lawyer imcompentent.

Priaises to Nancy Grace of HLN for convicting the players on national tv during the rape accusations.
Where are Jesse, Al, and the BP now. They were here during the accusations marching in the streets. Maybe they could hit the streets now with a collection plate to go towards her bond.

Lol she is representing herself. Lacrosse accuser, when will that ever die?
Rebelyell55 Jan 24, 4:30 p.m.
I guess there ain't a Duke fan around that place. Other posters have already stated what needed to be said. While she ain't able to make bail, wonder why her bond is so low?

Golo 1950 thank you!!! Crystal Magnum's Murder Trial Set For July.
That woman is a menace to society. AND Wral, you should be ashamed that you are continuing the charade that she started. Don't you think that her 15 minutes of fame was up about 15 YEARS ago? Let's use her name.
