The woman who falsely accused members of the Duke Lacrosse team of rape is preparing to go public.

Crystal Mangum will release her memoir at a news conference in Durham next Thursday.

Mangum graduated from North Carolina Central earlier this year. She accused three Duke Lacrosse players of rape in 2006.

Those players were exonerated after State Attorney General Roy Cooper found no credible evidence.

The news conference will be Mangum's first time in front of cameras facing questions about the case.
