    Are there organizations in Florida for people facing false sexual accusations (and any sort of support groups for their families)?

  2. John Doe says:

    November 2018 I was number 3 in a 4 car pile up in a winter storm that swept through Denver. I had full time work at the time. I was able to continue working by the use of public transportation. January 3rd 2019 my wife walkout out on me; taking the kids, abandoning all of the family bills, debt, and rent. January 7th 2019 I filed for divorce. January 9th 2019 my bitter vindictive wife convinced CPS that I abused our 6 year old son. I voluntarily came in for questioning; I only found out March 19th 2019 from the discovery evidence; that I was arrested for a felony charge of wrongs to minors. February 8th 2019 I was fired from my employment. February 22nd I narrowly escaped eviction proceedings; by vacating the martial home and having to throw away 90% of the martial possessions.

    I have been homeless; living in my brothers basement since. February 22nd 2019. I was waiting for the background check to come back from Deluxe (Check systems) in the springs to start my next full time job. The job offer was rescinded after the background check returned the felony arrest I only found about about on March 19th 2019; I was not informed that I was under arrest, was not photographed, fingerprinted, or informed at anytime prior to discovery that I was under arrest. I was under the impression that I was making a statement to the CPS investigator.

    I have applied to over 100 different jobs since February 22nd 2019. Until the revelations of the felony arrest discovered on March 19th 2019; I had no idea why I was being rejected from all the jobs I applied for. From call centers, to retail, to restaurants, to Radio/Television production; once a background check is preformed; I am no longer considered for the job. All they see is the felony arrest for wrongs to minors. The presumption of innocent until proven guilty dose not apply; CPS has already pronounced me guilty and put me into the Permanent state wide database as a child abuser and I have not had my day in court.

    I was able to begin work at a local family owned restaurant simply because I came at the right time and they did not run a background check. I have been walking and biking to work since.

    I go to trial on June 11th 2019 to prove my innocence and get the arrest removed from my record making employment in full time work more possible.

    I need help

    I need hope

    I need someone to believe me

    I need a full time job

    My son has been Falsely Accused. We hired another Lawyer to file his appeal. Just waiting until the brief. We have his Transcript’s. If you could read them you would see. One of his jurors said they found him guilty because of his rap sheet. It was for Drug’s. Nothing regarding Children. He’s a great father. We have so much evidence proving he’s innocent. The Little girl told family members her Mom made her say the things she said. Long story. But he need’s help. Thanks

    Grandfather accused of sexually abusing his grandchild. Child’s mom and dad (even after divorce, fighting over children). Grandfather not able to hire lawyer to help him with false allegations of child sexual abuse. Do you have attorneys in the Waco, Austin, Dallas or Fort Worth area that might be willing to help grandfather pro bono?

    Law enforcement wanted grandfather to come in for interview, grandfather refused but, did provide a written statement recounting places he was around child, along with other individual’s who were around child (i.e. bio mother’s boyfriend who was investigated for physically abusing child, boyfriend who mom claims RAPED a 17 year old minor female; paternal grandmother’s boyfriend who had 2 previous allegations made against him for sexually abusing 2 other minor male child but who refused to talk to CPS and/or law enforcement).

    Grandfather has facebook messages by child’s step-mom who wrote: “you will never get an honest answer from him, he’ll lie to make everyone feel like he is the victim”.

    Grandfather also has facebook messages between bio-mom and step-mom showing that even before grandfather was around child, child had sexually abused his sibling but yet, father and step-mom not want law enforcement or CPS to know about the abuse. Further, he also has facebook messages from bio-mom and step-mom indicating that even though CPS wanted the child to attend counseling, neither father or bio-mom complied with CPS counseling requirement (but yet, no action by CPS for their failure to comply).

    Grandfather needs help before he goes to jail for a crime he not commit.

    • admin says:

      Dear Michael,
      We do know lawyers in the area but they do not work pro bono. All the lawyers I know have bills to pay also. If your grandfather cannot afford an attorney, he can accept the court appointed lawyer and it is up to him to try to provide the lawyer with as much information as possible. I am very familiar with the Dallas area as I have done a lot of work there. Feel free to give us a call to see if there is anything we can do.

  5. Tim Wade says:

    My husband has been falsely accused by my daughter his stepdaughter. The peocutor has found enough evidance (and still looking) to help our case that he has offered to drop 6 of the 8 charges. Our lawyer has basically abandoned us by not returning phone calls not seeing my husband in jail and was not even at the last court date. The prosecutor has only been to one court date so far. I have proof the judge is prejudice to our case. I do have a consult with a lawyer tomorrow. We are scared, my husband has been in jail for 2 months now. The conditions at the jail are inhumane and i am at a loss as to qhat i do now… i have been doing all the investigating and even trying to file motions as our lawyer has dropped the ball. Any advice, help whatever would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
    Kelli

      Dear Tim,
      First, I have never found a prosecutor to be helpful to defendants. I would never be misled into believing a prosecutor is helping any defendant’s case. It sounds more like the prosecutor is dropping the weaker charges. Feel free to give us at 419-865-0513.

  6. Terri Lawson says:

    My fiancee was falsely accused of the rape of a male child in his ex girlfriends family by a convicted criminal who told hi Thm days before the allegation “I will get you.” My fiancee has been in jail since Feb 28, 2019, and due to our money situation is having to depend on a court appointed lawyer. This lawyer spoke to him ONCE, the day after he was arrested. My fiancee has no criminal record and is 66. As all stories, it is long and drawn out. I am at a loss.He is such a good man, and the little boy loves him so much. The childs uncle created this in the childs mind, since he just got back from prison and hates my fiancee.

  7. Chriss says:

    I have a question. My daughter’s fiancé was charged with felony reckless endangerment. His attorney recommendation he take a plea. He did and in January of this year received a one year supervised probation. We have always felt he never hurt the child. Today we received a report from 2 medical specialists who said that the infant had a medical issue that caused the injuries. He cannot afford an attorney to have his plea changed. Please advise.

    • admin says:

      Dear Chriss,
      The question is whether or not it is worth the risk to try to undue the plea and expose him to a prison sentence. you would need a really good lawyer to fight the battle of the experts. I understand how distasteful it is but if he is unable to financially fight then he may be in the best situation. Further, he may have waived his appeal rights as a condition of the plea. Feel free to call us and we can discuss the situation. Our number is 419-865-0513.

    Blessings Miss Hart,

    First and foremost, let me say the work that you and your organization are doing is nothing short of astounding and is such a life dependant need for so many people who have been falsely accused but can’t defend themselves for lack of resources, support or money. Thank you so much for your service.

    Here goes…Approximately, one year ago I was blindsided – a warrant was issued for my arrest for 5 counts of capital sexual assault of a minor under the age of 12. My worst nightmare had come true. My thirteen-year-old stepdaughter was accusing me of rape and my wife made it clear that she didn’t want to have anything else to do with me before cutting all communication. I was arrested two weeks later and given a $100,000 bond. I spent 20 hell-bent days in an overcrowded warzone of a jail pleading with my family, and friends that I didn’t commit these crimes before spending my life savings posting bail.

    Prior to my arrest, I was the Facilities and Events Coordinator for an International Non-Profit Organization, the Founder/Executive Director of a newly launched and up and coming Non-Profit that had begun to do great work in the Tampa community and the Founder/C.E.O. of a Media and Content Creation Company that also had begun to gain some traction. Immediately after my arrest, I lost my job, my Organization, and my business. Surprisingly, most of my family and friends turned their backs on me. I couldn’t find a job because I couldn’t pass a background screening due to the fact that I had five counts of sexual battery charges pending. With no way to generate income, I was kicked out of four homes by four different close relatives. At that point, I became homeless sleeping in my van and eventually on park benches while hustling jobs that paid under the table on Craig’s list. I often contemplated suicide but my faith in God and my innocence compelled me to stay strong and push on. Finally, after spending months in voluntary exile, I reached out to my Public Defender who informed me that there was no physical evidence of sexual assault found during the alleged victim’s examination, no DNA signatures matching my own found during testing and that new evidence had been recently filed in my case. An affidavit was filed by my accuser revealing that during a counseling session with a psychologist, the alleged victim (my stepdaughter)had confessed that all the allegations that she made to the police about me sexually assaulting her were a lie. She also wrote an apology letter to my judge and a fully detailed statement explaining why she made these false and hurtful allegations. Soon after, a reinvestigation was initiated by the State Attorney’s Office. During the reinvestigation, four new key facts were discovered: 1. My stepdaughter failed to disclose key facts in the case involving her culpability. 2. That I, the defendant never gave the impression of being sexually attracted to her in any way, that I never welcomed or attempted sexual contact. As a matter of record, in her words, I was always a loving father. 3. During the initial interview with a school counselor, my stepdaughter was repeatedly asked in a suggesting, coercing way “Tell us about your stepdad”.(Note: I was very active in my stepdaughter’s education attending open houses and PTA meetings, but a month or so prior to this allegation I had a strong disagreement with this very same school counselor about how the staff was structuring my stepdaughters class schedule), and 4. My stepdaughter revealed she had been exposed to porn at the age of five because of the negligence of her grandfather who left porn DVDs laying around and porn videos playing openly in his room daily. From that point on she admitted to secretly watching porn for years up until this incident. Months after re-interviewing my stepdaughter during the reinvestigation the State Attorney’s Office dismissed all charges.

    Miss Hart my charges were officially dismissed yesterday. I’m now trying to process all of this and put my life back together. I want to rebuild my Non-Profit Organization because my passion and purpose is public service but with being recently charged with five counts of capital sexual assualt my creditability is basically destroyed. I have a plan to accomplish this but it also involves requesting a full exoneration letter from the State Attorney’s Office and potentially filing a lawsuit against my father in law and the school counselor. I haven’t spoken with an attorney yet for three reasons: the first being, I have no money and cant pass a background check, the second being, I’m a convicted felon who spent a significant amount of time in prison for a nonviolent drug offense that I committed when I was in my early twenties. However, during my stint in prison, I turned my life around by recommitting my life to God and educating myself in legal business and investment, I’m an entrepreneur by nature. My past may be a liability. and two, I need to request a letter of full exoneration from the State Attorney’s Office this is needed to resume pursuing my passion and purpose of public service. And lastly, My stepdaughter is in counseling and doing well but she loves her grandfather for that reason I’m kind of reluctant because I don’t want to cause any regression in her therapy by filing a lawsuit against her grandfather. Miss Hart, I really need guidance in this can you please help me understand my legal options, identify actionable steps and to connect with the right Law firm and/or organization in the Tampa Bay area in order to begin rebuilding my life.

    Sincerely in the pursuit of Purpose.

      Thank you for the kind words. I cannot give you legal advice because I am not a lawyer, however, I suspect there is no way you are going to get “a full exoneration letter” from the State’s Attorney’s Office. You might be able to get your arrest record sealed or expunged but I am not even sure of that. You will need to ask your public defender about that. I agree there is a really big risk in filing suit against the grandfather as far as the young lady is concerned. Tread lightly! I am unaware of any civil lawyers that would bring suit free. There are way too many variables for the lawyers I know. You can check law school clinics or any of the personal injury lawyers you see on television to see if they will talk to you for free. There is a lot of immunity that has to be maneuvered around and that is the very reason that lawyers that I know won’t do it on contingency.

      Dear Kimberly,
      Sadly, if your parental rights have been severed the only thing you can do is to keep appealing. Your appellate lawyer can call the office to see if we have any specific suggestions.
