Sex offenders and wife beaters are notorious liars. If a man really wished to make amends, he wouldn’t do this. But the press is always making heroes out of heels, and victims out of vultures.

Very true.But it's also very true that there are cases where a girlfriend/wife makes a false accusation.Revenge and gaining an advantage are two possible motives for doing so.When a guy is accused of such a thing he will very probably be convicted even in cases where he did nothing wrong.And such a conviction is a nightmare in 1,000 different ways.I've read that today it's pretty much SOP for a woman in a divorce case or a child custody case to make an accusation of spousal and/or child abuse.It's very likely that a good percentage of such accusations are,in fact,valid.But I'd wager that some of them...perhaps even a substantial percentage of them...are false.

And if you were falsely accused...would your denials make you a liar?

Yes, precisely. And isn't it strange that of all the places he wants to volunteer, he chooses a place where small children are available?

“Sex offenders and wife beaters are notorious liars.”

So are vindictive women.

“If a man really wished to make amends, he wouldn’t do this.”

Amends for what? You don’t makd amends for being falsley accused. What would he do? It’s his children’s school.

Think about this...it is incredibly easy to destroy a man’s life by falsely accusing him of a sexual crime against a child. If a scorned wife with no conscience leveled false charges of child abuse against her husband, there is no way that the man can prove his innocence. He will be branded a sex offender for the rest of his life. Even if the wife recants her charge, there will always be that seed of doubt and “just to be safe”, society will require that the man continue to be considered a sex offender nevertheless.

“He’s convicted of indecency with a child, but Johnson said what really happened is that his ex girlfriend made the story up after a falling out.”

I know of two men that happened to. Both were made up cases and neither was arrested. One sued his ex-wife and WON.

I find it hard to believe he can't come up with something to do that doesn't involve children. It feels like a red flag...
