Duke Lacrosse Rape Accuser Sentenced To 14 Years For Murder
Remember the woman that accused members of the Duke lacrosse team of gang raping her back in 2006 only for those claims to be bogus? Well since then, Crystal Mangum went on to stab and kill her boyfriend in 2011, causing her to be convicted of murder and sentenced to 14 years in the bing on Friday, November 22.
Reports The Christian Science Monitor:
The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching its verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison.
Killed was 46-year-old Reginald Daye, who was stabbed on April 3, 2011. He died of complications 10 days later.
Mangum claimed the stabbing was a case of self-defense, saying Daye was beating her in a jealous rage when she grabbed a knife and “poked him in the side.”
Assistant District Attorney Charlene Franks told the jurors during closing arguments that the evidence did not back up Mangum’s story.
Karma remains undefeated.
