Crystal Gail Mangum and the Need for Online Sexual Predator Databases

Imagine a sexual predator attacks a victim. Then steals a car. Then drives under the influence. Then attempts to flee from police. Then attacks a police officer with a deadly weapon. Imagine that predator was held with a $75,000 bail.

Then imagine that sexual predator was only charged with misdemeanors.

Then imagine, years later, new victims accuse the predator of a sexual assault. And imagine if they had no knowledge before hand of the predator’s history.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know about these people before you move next door to them? Or send your child to work for them? Or entrust anything to them?


As previously reported on Brain Terminal, Dilby, Free Republic, Hugo Schwyzer, Redmen, Stand Your Ground, and WRAL (a local CBS and CNN affiliate), the name of the woman who accused the Duke Lacrosse team members of rape is Crystal Gail Mangum.

Ultimately, we have no way of knowing whether or not Crystal is telling the truth in her recent allegations. Though she is a cuckoldress and a criminal, it is true that cuckoldresses and criminals can find their own rights violated. In America, we have a good if somewhat political criminal justice system, and we can hope that justice eventually is served.

Nonetheless, with a record like this:

A day’s events summarized by WRAL (CBS/CNN) as:

The severity of the allegations raises questions about each individual involved in the events that transpired on March 13 and March 14, including the alleged victim.

New information about the victim has been divulged, concerning charges arising from an incident that occurred several years ago. According to a 2002 police report, the woman, currently a 27-year-old student at North Carolina Central University, gave a taxi driver a lap dance at a Durham strip club. Subsequently, according to the report, she stole the man’s car and led deputies on a high-speed chase that ended in Wake County.

Apparently, the deputy thought the chase was over when the woman turned down a dead-end road near Brier Creek, but instead she tried to run over him, according to the police report.

Additional information notes that her blood-alcohol level registered at more than twice the legal limit.

Why did her employer, Bunnyhole Entertainment, entrust her with her position? Why were her clients not informed of her past?

We would want the same for teachers, for police officers — even for politicians. So why not here? Why not now?

This sad affair could have been avoided if sexually-oriented criminals, like and , were flagged in easily searchable online public databases.

But they’re not. Pity.
