Duke Case: Notes from Durham Access?

updated: Sept. 19, 2006

This means another version of the alleged victim, Crystal Gail Mangum's many stories maybe forthcoming. The News & Observer:

One of three people who saw the accuser in the Duke lacrosse rape case at the crisis center where she first reported being sexually assaulted kept notes of her observations, defense lawyers said in a motion filed in court today...

While there for 40 minutes, the accuser interacted with three women on the center's staff, the motion says.

Gerri Lomuriel Wilkes, who was working at the center the morning the accuser came in, took hand-written notes of her observations, according to the motion.
Courttv.com comment regarding Durham Center Access procedures:
I just called Durham Center Access to find out what the exact procedure is. When someone is brought in for evaluation, several things can happen.

First, an interview is done, if there is reason to suspect a medical issue, they are sent to a hospital. If they go to a hospital, the eval stops there. No tests, no further questions, etc.

If no medical isues are found in questioning, an evaluation is done, this includes labs, etc.

They then are placed on a 23 hr hold in that facility. After 23 hrs, they are re-evaled and then placed or let out.

So, I guess she never got to the eval., only to the questioning, claimed rape and was sent to the ED.

I do not have a link for this, just a phone conversation...

Update: The N&O updated the story Tuesday morning and added:
Kirk Osborn, the Chapel Hill lawyer representing one of the accused, found out about the notes while interviewing Wilkes, according to the motion filed Monday....

Defense lawyers also are trying to get recordings from any radio exchanges among officers on secondary channels on March 14....

Defense lawyers also want Nifong to give a precise account of what allegedly occurred that night. They demanded a more precise timeline of the alleged offenses. They asked the prosecution to specify which of the two bathrooms at 610 N. Buchanan the gang-rape allegedly occurred.

Lawyers also asked the prosecutor to specify which "sexual act" each defendant is accused of committing.
