Duke Lawyer seeks Mangum's Records

APR 24 -- J. Kirk Osborn, who represents 20-year-old Reade Seligmann, surmises that there is a "good chance" that the accuser, Crystal Gail Mangum, "may have been committed, at least once, to a hospital or drug treatment program." As such, Osborn wants material documenting the woman's supposed "drug abuse history," according to a discovery motion filed this afternoon in Durham's Superior Court.


NOW COMES the Defendant, READE WILLIAM SELIGMANN, through counsel, and respectfully moves this Honorable Court pursuant to the Fifth, Sixth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, Article I, .19, 23 & 27 of the North Carolina Constitution and Pennsylvania v. Richie, 480 U.S. 39, 59-61 (1987) and its progeny, for orders directing the appropriate agencies to provide to the Court copies of all records of the complaining witness, Crystal Gale Mangum, regarding Mental Disability, Hospital Commitments, Drug Abuse History, Educational Records, Probation and Parole Record, and Department of Social Service Records. This request is based on the fact that the complaining witness has a history of criminal activity and behavior which includes alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and dishonesty, all conduct which indicated mental, emotional and/or physical problems which affect her credibility as a witness. Since these problems do not occur overnight, the probably began in her teenage years and continue to exist. The Defendant requests that these orders include directing both Hillside High School an North Carolina Central University to provide this Court her entire educational records including any disciplinary action and that the State make affirmative inquiry of the complaining witness as to any and all hospitalizations, treatment at mental centers, involvement with the Department of Social Services Agencies, Probation and Parole, Juvenile Agencies, Child Services Agencies, Victims' Advocacy Agencies or Organizations or any other agencies providing services for mental, emotional, drug or alcohol problems.
