Not the most open and shut abuse case ever. Hope the prosecutor thoroughly checked the girls story before ruining a man’s life. And even then it still seems that it’s going to be difficult to convict based on the facts in the story.

Funny how cops get a pass on everything. If this were an ordinary person bail would not have been granted or granted so high that there would be no chance of making it.

“Hope the prosecutor thoroughly checked the girls story before ruining a man’s life.”

Guilty or innocent, it’s ruined. On theses types of charges, everybody remembers the accusation. An acquittal, in many people’s minds, proves nothing.

I’m not saying whether this guy is guilty or not, I’m just saying that it’s the charge(s) that everyone remembers, not necessarily the outcome.
