Irony Alert: Crystal Mangum Pleads For Fair Treatment

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Crystal Mangum is back in the news: the woman at the heart of the Duke lacrosse fraud is now facing charges of arson, child endangerment and attempted murder following a domestic violence incident with her boyfriend.

She says that she would not like to be judged on the basis of what happened in the lacrosse case and worries the public opinion will be against her based on the perceptions of her previous behavior.

So just to be clear, Mangum is now a fan of being judged by honest prosecutors and honest evidence and doesn't wish to be railroaded by unfair perceptions.

Oh well, better late than never. And even though it takes a lot of chutzpah to do this, we can't disagree with her. Everyone should have that standard. We just wish the lacrosse players had too.
