The Falsely Accused and Attorneys who represent them

This site is dedicated to those who have been falsely accused of some type of child abuse and for the attorneys who represent them.

The National Innocence Project has exonerated, based upon DNA evidence, hundreds of persons who were convicted of atrocious crimes including capital murder and/or rape. A large number of those persons had confessed to crimes they did not commit. Considering that most cases of child abuse do not involve DNA evidence, one can only guess at the number of people in prison that are innocent. The fact that a person has been accused or charged and, possibly, convicted of the crime does not mean that they were guilty of the crime. There are many reasons for this phenomena that are touched upon in this site.

In the large percent of sexual abuse cases, there is no physical evidence or eyewitnesses. Medical exams are routinely “normal”. Yet, people are still convicted based upon a complainant and hearsay/vouching testimony by so-called “experts”. Especially disturbing are the cases where repeated, penile pentration was alleged, yet the medical exam was “normal” with what is considered an “intact” hymen.

In alleged Shaken Baby and other alleged physical abuse cases, there is seldom a search for an “equally competing hypothesis” for causation of any injuries. In most cases, the presumption is made that the injurie(s) were non-accidental and therefore must have been inflicted by someone. What is not commonly known is that in many of these cases, there is a gigantic dispute among medical experts as to whether a particular injury was accidental versus non-accidental or whether there is some non-abusive cause of the condition or injury.

The search for the truth regarding a child abuse allegation involves “The Law, the Science, the Myths, the Reality”. No one wants a guilty child abuser to go unpunished. On the other hand, there is a sentiment in the general public that it is “better to err on the side of safety” which translates into that “it is better to convict 10 innocent people to make sure we get the one guilty person”. That is, unless they are the person accused or a family member or friend.

Justice can be served when people educate themselves on the issues involved and let reason, rather than emotion, rule the day. We seek justice not only for real victims, but for those who have been ajudged a child abuser when they have not abused anyone.

        Dear Princess,
        Sadly this type of thing is familiar to our organization. I suspect you will have to play the game of parenting classes and whatever else CPS wants you to do. Consult with a lawyer to make sure this is what you need to do.

    Is there any help for my son who has a learning disability and served life for being a sex offender. the girl admitted he didn’t rape her, and said in court she lied about her age, said she was eighteen, come to find out she only 14 yrs. of age what can be done to help him get this off his name? It’s not right that these young girls can lie and get away with it, messing up young men life. I might have to take this to the (White House.) Guys serve all their lives in jail…come out and they’re still in jail. They can’t get a job. My son is out, but he has no life. My life is limited on this earth sooo I’ll be fighting to free him

      Dear Jean,
      As with the others, if he took a plea there is very little that can probably be done. I would look at possible clemency if the complainant is willing to help.

        Dear Jean,
        It is very difficult with teenagers who are sophisticated sexually. They can be very compelling. However case by case, there are often ways of exposing the lies. However, it is my experience that if the lawyer argues credibility only, it is not very successful. Feel free to call the office 419-865-0513.

  3. A Father In Need of Help says:

    Hello I am writing in hopes that someone will help myself, my family and my girlfriend. I am currently represented by a lawyer and I feel like he is doing a great job. I here because this is bigger then him and I. I feel like the State of Oregon, CPS and Law Enforcement has overstepped many bounds in my case. I will give a brief overview of the situation as its a mess and it involves my custody battle with my ex-wife and my girlfriends custody battle with her ex husband.

    When I was 20 years old I had an underage girlfriend. Yes I know it wasn’t smart. Her family and my family had been friends for years. Long story short here is I was involved in a relationship with her for approximately 8 months and lived in the home with her and her mother. We paid bills together as a family unit and all typical stuff that a family would do to support each other. We broke up and emotions were high. We all said stuff we didn’t mean and it eventually led to her mother turning me into authorities for having sex with her daughter. I was convicted of the crime and did 11 months in jail and was released on probation and required to report as a sex offender. This happened in 2008 and I have long been off probation, completed sex offender treatment 5 years ago as part of my probation and have a letter of recommendation from the director of my sex offender treatment program. He knew I had an uphill challenge and felt compelled to write a letter for me to hand over to potential employers as I became a father shortly after my classes ended. Since my conviction and the end of my probation I have held many jobs of integrity. I started on the sales floor at a cell phone company about 4 months after I got off probation and over the course of the next 3 years earned two promotions to store manager and then eventually I became area sales manager. I have worked at U.S. Bank and now I am currently employed at a veterinarian clinic. When I lived in California I wrote the attorney generals office in regards to not having to register as a sex offender. I got a letter within a month saying they had reviewed my case and agreed based on California legislation that I was not required to report as a sex offender any longer although I was convicted in Oregon. My sex crime was a felony and now its a misdemeanor in Oregon. My victim wrote a letter to the judge 3 years later asking for my crime to be reduced to a misdemeanor. The district attorney and judge presiding over the case from the start agreed and put through the motion.

    My life as a father. I have two beautiful girls that I cherish dearly. They are so full of life and enjoy playing with their dad. Up until recently we made frequent trips to the park to play, went to the arcade to play games, threw the baseball in the yard because they want to play just like their daddy. Then in May of this year my daughters were ripped away from me. In Nov of 2014 my wife and I of two years divorced. We had been together since she turned 18 and she is now 24 going on 25. We divorced civilly in May of 2015 and agreed on all terms of our divorce and moved on co-parenting as normal. We agreed to Joint Custody. Then in February of 2016 I get a notice in the mail that she is filing for full custody. I was SHOCKED! Completely shocked. Of course it was about the amount of child support blah blah blah as my job had changed and was now living with my current GF and her kids. Over the course of the next several months our attorneys battled back and forth over child custody all the way down to child support. I wouldn’t back down on giving up my time with my girls and it came back to haunt me. Right before we were getting ready to go to court she filed for an immediate danger motion stating that our oldest daughter said that I had touched her and her sister this was in May. Because of my previous sex offense it was immediately granted. CPS and Law enforcement are now involved.

    My girlfriend is going through a custody battle as well. Even more uglier then mine. Her ex husband got wind of the allegation against me by my ex wife and is now using it to his benefit as well. The judge in their case asked DHS to do an independent review of me being around her kids as she has a young daughter. Everything was fine until about a week ago when “someone” called into DHS saying that her daughter had been showing signs of sex abuse. That someone of course was her ex husband.

    I showed DHS my letters of recommendation from my treatment provider, explained to them my sex offense and that I took accountability for it and that it was consensual sex with my minor GF at the time. I have letters of recommendation from my probation officer as well as the police chief in my small little town. This summer I was unanimously voted onto the umpire officiating crew of our local little league and subsequently was selected to umpire the district little league tourney held in our town.

    The DHS caseworker in the case with my girlfriends daughter literally told me that because of the recent allegation, as well as allegation against my own children and that I am a sex offender that that alone is enough for me to be founded as a threat of harm. The DHS caseworker where my ex wife lived talked to me on the phone for 5 minutes and then waited 3 months to tell me I was founded as a threat of harm and still haven’t received notice in the mail about it. I met with DHS one time and was interviewed but not even given a notice that I was being assessed. I haven’t received one form from DHS in this matter. I have heard through my GF what they are accusing me of but they won’t tell me anything.

    There is so much more proving my innocence including the timeframes of when this supposed abuse happened. Specifically with my own kids. My ex wife said in her affidavit my parents were not at home when I was staying with my kids at their house when actually they were. She says it happened in the shower well my mom bathed the kids that weekend. With my ex girlfriend these allegations came out after the judge had ordered me to stay away from her kids until investigation was done that was at the end of June its now September. I have been staying at my parents and haven’t even been around her kids since early April because of a short break up. We got back together in June but I told her to keep her daughter away from me so that way DHS couldn’t use it to their advantage. My girlfriend told them this. They said well we don’t have proof that he hasn’t been around them. I literally moved out of my own house to live with my parents for this specific reason not coming up and they are still trying to say like I sneak over when my GF is sleeping and abuse them. Im like get real this is absolutely obsurd.

    Anyways they are now putting my GF on a safety plan with her kids saying that she is covering for me and that she has allowed the abuse to happen. She has to be monitored 24 hours a day by her parents around her children.

    I am disgusted with how the system has abused their power and a through investigation has not been done. I have evidence that my ex gf has coached my daughter before to her babysitter and have corroborating evidence in an email from the babysitter. I showed DHS this information and to my face said yeah that looks like coaching then at the end of all this say that I am a monster.

    They have taken my oldest daughter and her oldest daughter to forensics interviews in which they said they have “evidence” that there has been abuse. A forensic interview is a freaking joke. They did all of this after my wife has had plenty of time to fill my daughter’s head with lies and my gf’s ex husband as well. My wife waited literally a month after she suspected this abuse apparently to report it like really? Right before court??

    NOBODY AT DHS IS LISTENING. They are saying my family, my girlfriend and her family are all covering for me. I am beyond frustrated and stressed out. I am worried of being wrongfully convicted. PLEASE HELP!

      • Angela m. says:

        Kim, could I please get some help or directed to someone that can help my family? My family is going through the almost identical situation as the man’s story you responded to. My brother just had his children removed by his children’s, mother’s father and his wife that isn’t blood related. They filed for immediate danger and were granted. All 3 children were ripped from my brother and now living with these two extremely violent people with horrible backgrounds. They use drugs and beat each other regularly. They got the children so the biological mother can be around them anytime she wants to because my brother had filed for custody and was granted after she walked out on all 3 kids, moved out of state back to her old home town so my brother put a parenting plan in place to protect the children due to her drug use and her attempting to take the children out of state and not return them. she also now has a boyfriend that is a registered sex offender. Her visits are supposed to be monitored and supervised but now that her father has the children, she is posting on social media how she is in fact visiting with them and around them right at the moment and that her dad got them for her until she cleaned up her act. We are so scared for these kids and my brother has cried not knowing what to do because you see, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Since they’ve gotten the immediate danger granted, they have repeatedly called CPS and have made some horrible false accusations that I don’t even want to give detail of, but basically they’re painting my brother as a sex offender and sex abuse towards his own children. My brother has a CPS worker that stops by regularly with police, they peek in his windows, even open his door yelling inside there home. The CPS worker made a threat that if he fights for his children, she will see to it that she takes them away if he gets them. My brother is afraid to even fight for his own kids! They made him lose his job, they’re threatening to remove the other two children remaining in the home, one child is 2 years old that he has with his new girlfriend so now his girlfriend doesn’t even want him in the home. He’s literally lost everything. He went to a hearing today and asked for a continuance to get an attorney and the judge granted him more time but how does he get one when these people made him lose his job? While at court, these people had witnesses and actually managed to get a 13 year old girl to say my brother had sexually assaulted her. We were beyond shocked. My brother wants to even take a polygraph to prove his innocence. We have 3 weeks to get help. All we know is that CPS won’t listen, they’re harassing him, treating him as if he were a sex offender, we can’t get anyone to listen or defend us. We’ve got 3 kids that are in severe danger in a horrible environment and at a loss. Could you please help in any way???

    Hi guys,

    I have a question. My ex girlfriend who is the mother of our child was living with a cocaine addict whom I thouraly disapproved of. After giving her the third degree over the situation and threatening to expose her roommate to everybody and their mother (but never did) and freakig out about CPS coming to my daughters home, (first off she is unvaccinated and hee in California thats strike 1) the very next day cps shows up to investigate her roomate. The roommate has convinced my babies mother that I called when in reality just wanted her away from the situation and she knew this and belived me entirely because of how freaked out I was that my baby was there in the firSt place and now involved in the investigation. I did not file this complaint but am constantly being accused of it. The roommate (who has a 4yr old child) is now under investigation and claims to have no enemies not to mention apparently she threw a coke party in my daughters house the weekend before in a quiet neighborhood. Luckily my baby and her mother are
    out of the house now. Now, my question is; is there any way to prove I had not filed the complaint. I am not the type to separate a family weather that’s good or bad but I also did not want this to effect the custody of my child living in the same home. I am sick of the accusations and hostility. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Sincerely,
    Alexander

      With the help of a lawyer, maybe you could take a polygraph and that would calm down the hostility and allegations. I would do it only with a lawyer arranging it and I would not tell anyone you are taking it until after you get the results!

    I got fired today, so when I got the job at the Vape shop I had ex employees and customers tell me how shady was the place I got a job at, I ignored. Few problems after working there for 3 months. We were told to take a 1 hour break for working 6 hours. We never got 10 min breaks. And it was mandatory to take an hour break. If somehow we were busy and didn’t take the hour break for working 6hours. They would minus an hour on our psychecks. Hours were always missing from our psychecks. N they would blame it on a computer glitch all the time. I was forced to open a social media account for there business and was suppose to post 2 pics a day and go on there periscope broadcast live n if I didn’t becuz they didn’t have new products to take pics of I would get bitched at. Anytime something got misplaced or lost or they forgot where they put it. I was the first to get blamed and accused of its dissapering. There was 2 employees and 1 manager n only 2 keys. I would have to drive around n waste my time n gas to give the person keys to open n close. N one of the shifts they took my keys and I was suppose to open they gave a customer the keys n it never got to me I even called the day of my shift no responds and I got blamed for it. I was the only one who would clean the whole place from top to bottom and would get blamed for not being cleaned when I literally just cleaned it. I would get talked down too, laughed at for not knowing something. There was gay comments being made n jokes towards me. And I supposably got fired for sexual harassment, becuz a few customers reported me. When I asked proof he started studdering n had no response, I worked there for 3 months I didn’t kno anyone well enough to make a joke. Ppl would come buy juice and clean they wouldn’t be there more then 2 mins. Only people I joked with was my actual friends that came in the shop to hang out with me. I never not once said anything sexual towards a customer. I think they found out I’m opening a Vape shop and me always telling them the stuff they do is illegal they got fed enough and used a lie of me sexually harassing someone to get fired

  8. Heather Williams says:

    I’m a mom of 3 beautiful kids whom my mother took them in Nov last year and falsely accused me of bogus allegations I was in a domestic violence issue and they requested that I exit the relationship
    immediately however never offered any kind of help for me to do so. Meanwhile he was arrested and received 15 do 3 which made my exit strategy a lot safer and unfold in my favor. Now Dfcas is saying I have to continue with supervised visits with kids and can not be with 500 ft or I go to jail no one will tell me what the reason is. My kids have never been away from me I’ve been the sole provider for the last 6 years never had any kind of run ends with cps before and all of this chaos is due to an overactive grandparent whom didn’t like the punishment of taking my daughters phone for being rude and called cps on a power trip so please help me get the help I need to rightfully get my kids home where they belong please. We go back to court September 19th I have been doing supervised visits since April with no issues no problems and I’m still allowed unsupervised no charges have been made against me nor have I failed any drug screens. I told the court and case worker I was planning to move to Florida where housing was more affordable and I had a great job opportunity. They still are treating me as if I’ve harmed my kids in some way I just want my kids at home with me.they have had hearings without my knowledge and without any kind of notice. They’re making my son in to a juvenile delinquent and he’s not he’s an amazing young man , whom has never been away from me and now only gets to call me for 8 min once a week and once a week visit each week. My 6 year old she started school this year without me and her dad which is my husband not the domestic violence issue. So now the family can and should together and in a stable safe environment which they have always known until this past Nov I don’t want to spend another Christmas without them. I’ve applied for appointed Consul and have been turn down twice so the only thing left to do is fight for my kids myself and that’s why I need some legal guidance if you could help I’d be grateful more than you could possibly realize.

    Hi my husband is being falsely accused of sexual abusing my 11yr old daughter. I am certain that he didn’t do what she is saying he did and he said that he didn’t do it. My daughter has a history telling stories and making things seem more serious or extravagante than it really is and I can tell you stories but yall would be reading forever. I’ve had to get on her plenty of times about coming up with wild stories and I can’t tell you where she gets it from. One time I thought about getting her therapy, I’ve been going through with her since she was about 7 yrs. Old. The allegation was that my husbaND asked her to suck his nuts and touch his balls and that he was kissing on her. She told me that she had dreamed that and told DHS the same thing but when they asked the boy if my daughter said that to him, he said yes and the little girl said yes. My 3 yr old son was taking away also. I had my first hearing today and was told that they will be doing a forensic testing this coming Friday and if they suspect anything, my court case will be oct. 5th but if they don’t find anything at all then I don’t have to go to court and that they will be returned to my custody. This causing such pain ND agony bease me or my husband don’t know why she would suggest something like that about him. We need help!!! We need to beat this DHS case and clear his name.

  10. Mike says:

    Since my daughter’s mother and I split up 15 months ago, she immediately began carrying out a vindictive agenda to completely erase me from the life of my beloved 3-and-half year old girl. On my birthday; just days before father’s day and a planned vacation to the beach, she sent a text message advising that I would no longer be able to see my daughter “until a court draws up an agreement,” adding that this was “for the best.” With no other alternative, I filed for custody. Six weeks later, after a ‘temporary access agreement’ was reached, I got to see my daughter. She wasn’t the same, though. She was verbally and emotionally closed off — completely void of the affection she once showed. I can’t prove it, but it seemed as if she had been coached to act this way. At one point she said, “I don’t care if my daddy is dead or alive.” As devastating as this was, much worse was to come. After the litigation concluded and an agreed upon Consent Order was entered, my lawyer suggested that things would improve. Nothing could have been further from the truth. As part of the Order, we were to meet with a ‘parental coordinator’ — who happened to be a member, along with opposing counsel, of a ‘collaborative’ group of lawyers and so-called mental health and financial professionals. My daughter’s mother — likely afflicted with borderline personality disorder — made all kinds of frivolous and false claims and painted a negative and fictional image of me to the ‘parental coordinator’, who clearly was sold on it. In May, my daughter was running along a cement curb, tripped and fell on her face. After comforting her and cleaning her face, she stopped crying and was back to her old self. I made an appointment for her at an urgent care clinic (it was the weekend) out of precaution and informed her mom of the appointment. Based on history, I was not surprised when a sheriff showed up at my house on Monday to serve me with a ‘protective order’ alleging child abuse. I was devastated and fell apart emotionally and psychologically. A month later, no longer able to perform my job functions, I was asked to resign from a great firm where I had previously excelled. Although no criminal charges were ever filed, the civil matter has been postponed several times. I have not seen my daughter in four months now, and have spent tens of thousands in legal fees to date. Moreover, the system (e.g. courts, dss) seems set up to facilitate the aforementioned agenda of erasing me from the life of my daughter. In conclusion, as painful as this continues to be for me, the real victim, of course, is my daughter. That she has been taken from her dad and essentially used as a weapon against him is a crying shame.

  11. Scott Hill says:

    I was wrongfully accused, then found guilty in a court of law,I was not present at the trial. I did not show up because I had no attorney to represent me because the alledged rape took place in June of 2001. I was wrongfully convicted at a trial on september 12, 2015. I was not at the trial because I had no legal representation. Attorneys’ that I talked with will not represent me , because the case is too old, but yet they probably want to put me in prison for a rape I never commited. The alledged rape victom met me in a hotel room. We had plans to go to dinner,she called me at the hotel room from her work site and told me she was going to be late. She could not make are prearranged plans for dinner and she said on the phone, “I will meet you at your hotel room, she said, “be ready, I do not have much time, ” said, “why not” she said I have plans early in the morning , but she could still meet me for a “quicky”. She came to my hotel room and she said, “be ready”, I don’t have much time”. When she came to my room , she said” get dressed, I was in my underwear and socks, she said thatt there was going to be no sex, because she was in a bad mood, because she had a bad day at work. She said she was going to file rape charges, I said, I did not even touch you, she said, I know that, but they don’t and they will believe me before they believe you, I said you have me there , but I did not even touch you and you want to file rape charges that did not ever happen. She said, ” she didn’t know? And that she had to leave, she left the room untouched. She took two weeks to report the “alleged” rape, she was interviewed five times, each time she had a different story of the incident. I was wrongfully found guilty of the alledged rape in a court sesion that I was not in on September 12, of 2015. I am not in jail for the wrongful alleged rape, but, I want to clear this up, so I do not wrongfully go to jail or prison for a rape that I never committed in June of 2001. Thanks your help in rederring an attorney who can help would be great!

  13. Julie says:

    About 17 yrs ago, I was in an abusive marriage, our family counselor told me to leave as my step son is planning on making my life hell. I left with my three children and divorced, which I was called by my attorney at the time to go into hiding, I declined, as my mom was ill. I went on with my life, had a lifetime restraining order. We had one child in common. This step child accused me of throwing something at him and cutting his lip. I was never contacted, my kids remained with me etc. Put myself through college, two degrees. Never spanked any of my children etc. I just recently learned of this “founded” thing, then unfounded. My counselor is deceased. The individual who falsely made this accusation has lived in prison. How do I get this removed, so I can work?

    • admin says:

      Dear Julie,

      The CPS “founded” finding may not be able to be undone. There are very strict timelines to these. You may be able to say you just found out, maybe. You will need to find a lawyer that does “administrative appeals” in your area. You can call the office if you like at 419-865-0513.

  17. Frece Robin says:

    I got a call yesterday from Sherrifs office Child Protection that i needed to contact them about a report that was open with my children, I called back about 8x’s and got a machine, so i left a message for them to call back
    An officer called back and asked if we can meet and that she could not discuss what this was in reference to. I met with them at the Child Protection office. the two officers told me that they had a report of inapproprate touch on my 6yr old son during bath time (i also have a 9yr old daughter) they asked if i wanted a lawyer present and read wrights, i signed to speak with them without a lawyer, as this is a “rediculouse” allegation. They asked me if i ever take my son from the dinner table to go and bathe him, I informed them that I do not, I work late so whe i get home my kids are asleep, However on the weekends they do not leave my side. My kid never eat at the table they eat in the room where i usually am, and i bathe them only when we are about to go out, or at the end of the day on the weekends together. Whe i do I quickly lather my son up with a rag, and my daughter, and i have them wash their own private part really good, then i rense them off. They said they could not tell me who placed the complaint, but after several questions they indirectly let on that it was my wife whom i live with, I told them I am not suprised, since although we live together. We have not spokent to each other in 4 or more years, not even a hello or good bye, we have not filed for divorce but i do know she has been being coached and prepaaring. She has often told me, and others years ago when we did somewhat communicate, that if we ever seperated i would never see the kids. I had to call the police on her arround Jan for grabbing my daughters are pulling it untill she cryed to prevent her from going to Disney with me. I am in the process of getting a copy of the recording from 911 and a transcript because almost the whole incident was recorded on the 911 call. Once the police got there i did not press charges and no one went to jail though. She has called everyone at my job, family, friends telling them that i am cheating on her (when i am not) so i dont know if this LIE!, i mean false allegation is a pay back for calling the police on her, or part of getting to her statement of “I will never see the kids” plan. But i can say that I WOULD NEVER TOUCH MY KIDS INAPPROPRIATLY!!!! or allow anyone to have my babies!!! This directly affects how i can interact with my kids now, and i am terrified that since we all live together she can continue to make false claims. I pay all of the bills because she just stopped paying 3yrs ago, i have tried letting the lights go off, she just goes to her sisters untill the are turned back on, which i cant let go long because i have kids, I am cought between a rock and a hard place. Then she tells everyone i know that i am the one not paying bills, so i feel if she has to lie about her actions to others, then she knows that she is wrong.. and just doesnt care. (sorry i got carried away) The officers said that they had spoken with her and my son at the house eairlier, and long story short said from talking to my son, my wife and myself didnt seem to detect any evidence of inapropriate behavior, and they did not think this would go anywhere but they have to open the case assign if im correct a officer, but i would only hear somthing if it was determined that my son would need to see a Dr. but they didnnt think it would get to that. My question is
    1. how do i interact with my kids whom I love now
    2. we always go out with just us on the weekends. What if she tries like she did before and stop me from taking them out. Can i still call the police or can she then say “I have a molestation report on him. will it make my case worse?
    3. Should i belive the officers thinking that nothing may come out of this, or try to hire a lawyer, which i think will really set her off to try to get me.
    4. Do you have experianced lawyer reccomendations in Tampa, Florida?

  19. Broken hearted mama says:

    Hello, I really need some help. I don’t want to say too much a this pertains to my 3 minor children. Long story short, my ex mother in law and my ex step daughter hate and I mean HATE my son and I. There were false allegations against my son that he sexually abused my two younger girls. 2 different Drs looked at my girls, both reports said that every thing was normal in both girls. With what was alleged, they would NOT be normal if he had done what he was accused of. His attorney literally told us that if we didn’t take the plea deal that the judge was going to find my 14 year old son guilty, send him to prison until he was to turn 21 and he’d have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Terrified and not willing to gamble my sons life, we very reluctantly took it. Keep in mind, both of my girls said he didn’t hurt them, there was NO evidence of any abuse of any kind. My son is on probation still and I wonder if I can still back out of this? What can I do? Also my sons attorney gave the reason the judge would find him guilty is because my sons biological father who has not been in my son life has had many, many legal problems and has been in and out of prison. And the judge knew my sons father very well and didn’t like him. My ex husband of 13 years was the one who has raised my son. It was my ex husbands mother and his oldest daughter that made this crap up. Please, some one….. Anyone…… Please help us. Please

    • admin says:

      Hi,
      Withdrawing pleas is a tricky business. Depending on how long ago he took the plea there maybe nothing that can be done. Also, if a plea is withdrawn, you WILL need the funds to aggressively fight this to the end because everyone for the state, and in my opinion, the judge will do everything they can to convict your son. Call the office 419-865-0513 and we can discuss it.

      Dear Mary,
      You can call the FBI – human trafficking division to see if there is any help. You could also call the Attorney General’s Office to see if there is any intervention there. If you can afford a private lawyer for her, I would. If not, you should not contact these prosecution agencies without advising the public defender that you are going to do it and that he/she is not hearing you. As a matter of fact, I would put it in writing and copy the public defenders boss! I would not do anything with first making sure the lawyer knows your intentions and can give you a reasonable reason why you should not contact these other agencies if you truly believe this was against her will.

    PLEASE HELP ME AND MY FAMILY BE REUNITED!!! WE NEED OUR KIDS BACK!! CPS HAS TAKEN ALL THREE OF MY CHILDREN AND BELIEVE MY HUSNBAND AND I ARE NOT FIT PARENTS! WE NEED HELP ITS BEEN GOING ON FOR 2 YEARS NOW OF NON STOP FIGHTIG FOR MY CHILDREN TO COME BACK HOME!!
    My family is going through a hell! my husband and myself have both been falsely charges with child abuse/neglect on our son Brayden.
    and now our 2 daughters Grace and Faith. They have taken all 3 of our children at this time. Brayden 2 years lives with his great grandparents
    in Florida. Social Servcies came and took Brayden from us after we took him to the hospital because his arm wasn’t moving… turns out he had
    2 broken bones! a broken humerous and a broken tibia.(this is right after Christmas 2015 after the whole family met him, held him, even our
    family didn’t notice brayden in any sort of pain, defiantly unaware of him having any broken bones… after several months of living a
    life by social services rules we completed our case plan to the fullest. it is going on 1 1/2 years our son has been away from us! 8 months
    after being in my grandparents care Brayden fell off of a chair and broke his femur bone! he has been going to Shands hospital in gainesvill
    e fl. Brayden has now been diagnosed with a Vitamin D defiency as well as a iron defiency. The district attorney wont even look at the medical
    side of our son or case. we have had the worst luck! my hisband one night got up with Grace 2months old to feed her in the wee morning
    and as he was making the bottle she kicked back out of his arms and fell onto the concrete floor. my husband tried to catch her but believes
    he might have made it worse by putting more for on the force into the fall… he picked her up as mu husband explains to me the fall nknocked
    the wind out of her. he picked her up immediety, examined her, she had a bump on her head. (like a goose egg) and he soothed her and gave her
    the bottle after about 5-8minutes minutes of crying. She calmed down and my husband fed her. we were both concerned for Grace but at the
    same time we were terrified to take Grace to the hospital in fear of social services taking our children. we watch grace every minute of
    the day as our guts are telling us she needs medicl atten. she was doing good for a while. she ate normal, wet diaper as excepted, slept,
    woke up… about after 24+ hours after a feeding she threw up. at that point we knew we had to take her to the hospital. we did what was
    best for grace knowing they were most likely going to takr our child from us! at the hospital we finally got the nurse to acknowledge how
    bad grace really was. at this point she wasn’t herself as she is normally a active baby. to make a long story short, they nurse was going
    to discharge us and let us go home. we argued the point there was something worng with our little girl. they final said for us to go to
    the other hospital to get a CT of her head as they didn’t have the technology at that hospital. when we get to the other hospital we are
    told the CT results Grace had a skull fracture and extra axial cranial bleeding. shortly after the results they take her to another
    hospital 5 hours away as they take my daughter away from me and my husband. they done a skeletal survey on Grace and it shows 2 healing
    rib fractures! my husband and I had n idea our daughter had broken ribs!! once again we are looked at a child abusers. I go back home to
    get a know on the door by a police officer. he is waiting for the dective to show up. I was unaware they were about to take our 7 year old
    girl Faith away from us too!!! here I sit helpless a mother of 3 with not a child in sight!!. our life and childrens lives have been turned

    daughter is distraut. our 2 daughters were taken may 31 2016 she has lost of 10 pounds in such a short amount of time they have her going
    to all sorts of therapist. please help me and my family as I have read where you look into the misdiagned of child abuse. we have been
    fighing for our children since the day they took Brayden January 12 2015. I’m reaching out to you in light of you looking into my
    childrens medical history. please.. we have not abused our children!! we wouold never hurt any child non the less our own especially

    We need help. Recently i was informed by CPS that my 13 year old daughter had told someone that my boyfriend of 3 years had touched her inappropriately on her thigh and private area as she sat with us watching a movie on our loveseat about 5-6 months ago. Yeah this supposedly happened with me sitting right there. Anyways, my daughter had actually told her older sister and then they brought it to my attention about it but she only said that he rubbed her thigh and showed us a little above the knee and that was it. Nothing said at all since to us that it was more. Until now with this report to CPS. Talk about shocked! There is so much that my ex-husband has done to make sure that my life is miserable since i left him that i have no doubt that he found out about this misunderstanding and pushed it further that it was. He is a highly manipulative person. He used to brag about how he was so good at manipulating his commanders in while he was in the service. Anyways he is not a affectionate type person. Very controlling with materialistic things. If you dont do what he wants he takes it all away. I was married to this monster for 9 years but together for 13. I know for a fact that he hates how our kids love my boyfriend because he is more affectionate and loving and fun. I am worried because of the trac record with having to go against him in the past and losing due to him having tons of money and his manipulative gift of being Mr. Wonderful my boyfriend will be found guilty with these false accusations. Because unfortunately CPS dropped the ball when it was first reported and didnt follow protocol as they should of when it was reported he has them by the balls…his exact words. so now i feel they are gonna do anything to cover themselves. So now even though my 2 youngest kids live with him in a different town my boyfriend has been asked to leave our home since i have a 17 yr old daughter who lives with me full time during the investigation. So now he is having to stay in a nasty falling apart from water damage small RV with nothing but a fan and a small bed made on a table bench seat. Its absolutely ridiculous. My 12yr old daughter who supposedly told someone at her church camp over a month after this supposed incident, she told me she felt bad because she was confused at the time that she was being told a lot of stuff from her friends about them being molested and even told her to watch out because her own father may molest her. so she was extra paranoid about being careful around anyone. She said that she told her dad that she didn’t feel it was on purpose after all and her dad made her feel bad that she was trying to change her mind now. Ugh it such a mess. I strongly believe that my ex is using this incident to further his control of keeping me miserable just like he did with lies he fed the court in order to get custodial parent in the divorce. He found out that recently that my boyfriend and i are planning to marry in july and that my boyfriend is becoming a police officer. So of course he tell me that i am dumb for getting married again. and BAM this happens. i dont know what to do. i would hate for my boyfriend to get accused of this and found guilty all because of my overbearing controlling ex-husband. please help.

    Hello My Daughter went to work and left her daughters with her boyfriend of a year.Only to get a phone call about 4 hours later to get home there was a problem. She got there to find out her 2 year old was not responding and was sent to the hospitel only to find out her daughter was dead. It was conformed that the boyfriend had beat the Little girl to death. well CPS took the other daughter and she is is in custody of the biological father. (to whom is a convicted child molester)and at the time all this was going on she found out she was pregnant. And at the time of birth CPS came 2 hours after she gave birth and took custody of the new born. And now my Daughter is being asked to give up all rights to both girls as to whom she has not seen the oldest in a year and the baby in 8 months. She has been convicted of nothing. They told her to sign over her rights and walk away and start a new life. This is unfair and we need help.

    hi, i dont know of you can help me but my husband has been falsely accused of sexual assault of his ex-gf daughter. This ex-gf is just a crazy person, controling nad seriously has mental problems, they broke up almost a year ago and when she did find out about our relation, oir married and now that I am pregnant, she just decide to falsely accuse my husband saying that this happen 2 years ago. He is in jail now, there are no evidences of this case and just because the charges he is in maximun security worry about what could happen to him. We have emails and phone call recordings where she said that she is laying, but it looks like he will be in jail because laws on this country doesnt even make sense.

    Please help my adopted son and myself. On September 1st, DCS was called by an anonymous caller and my
    husband and I were wrongly accused of Human trafficking, I was accused of having sex with 1 of my recently adopted son’s(clothes on), and giving both adopted son’s alcohol and cigarettes. The story gets much more complicated and I don’t know what to do. I was forced to tell DCS(by so called friends and so called family)that the oldest son I had adopted from a different country, had forced me to have sex, or they would tell DCS for me. I didn’t want to say anything, to anyone. I was dealing with this on my own. I had forgiven him. The oldest son did force himself on me one time and was truly sorry for his actions and this has never happened again. This took place in Ukraine in May of this year. He spent most of his life in the orphanage and I was unaware of any issues that he may have had in his past. He is a very controlling and manipulative person, but has had A LOT of past trauma. I thought I could help him myself and get a therapist for him. He spent time in the hospital for cutting and suicidal thoughts. He escaped the hospital he was in and ended up in jail for 40 days, as a result of his actions. He is now at a facility for troubled youth. He is very scared and wants to come home. My husband doesn’t want him to be in this house and DCS and the court have ordered a NO Contact Order against me. I have never been a sex offender, accused of being one, etc. I have a lawyer and want to change my story, because I was forced to lie and my son is suffering because of this. I have a total of 6 kids. 2 bio and 4 adopted. I cannot live like this anymore. Please help me and my son. Too much to write….the story continues and I’m very heartbroken.

    Colorado-grandma of a non-verbal 5 yr old boy-who was abducted by police, in another state, and held in a jail facility overnight-waiting for social services to come and take him to the hospital to be checked for injuries. The CPS caseworker, got an emergency custody order-with “medical neglect”-and “injurious environment”–(before she had ever been inside our house).{neither of which presents exigent circumstances). They have no evidence of any of the reporters allegations, and, he had never been injured or even ran a fever, in my care. Ive not had one visit with him-which Im sure will be excruciating, for both of us, to say the least-Ive been his only means of trust, and support, for 2 1/2 yrs, since, my daughter took off and refused to give me medical authorization. They ran my backround check and found that I have a 7 yr old warrant, in another state-and, although, that state will not extradite me-Ive been back there twice now-and will have to return yet, again in january, to receive a sentence. January, is the permanency hearing. Ive filed as an intervenor, in court-yet, I have no idea, what kind of ordeal I will need to go through, in the other state-before I can come back and fight for my grandson. There’s been several rights violated against me and my grandson, and, I would like to hold everyone responsible, for, causing my grandson, distress. Im so worried about him!! Please, help.

    A young woman has been sentenced to 40 years in the state penn here in Tennessee. She was tried and convicted of aggravated rape of a child.. She states that the child was constipated and a hard ball of feces was stuck in his anus.. She sat down with him on the commode and attempted to break the obstruction away with the handle of a small brush. The handle broke off and she took the child to the hospital. They let the child relax and the handle was expelled with no interaction.
    Ive known the woman all of her life.. She grew up across the street from my family and our families were very close.
    This woman/mother/ball coach had no ill intentions in this matter. She had baby sat the 2 year old child most of its life and kept him and raised him as her own. Many people at the ball park thought he was her natural child.
    She did not intend to hurt that child and the psychiatrist have tested her and stated that she does not have any sexual ideas concerning children.
    She has tried to kill herself four times in prison and is now in a solitary confinement and has been for 18 months. This is an inhumane way to live. No contact with anyone and the situation is so very bad. Her psychiatrist have stated that she is suffering terribly from this situation and medicines have been withheld that she needs desperately.
    she was just recently sentenced to 40 years in the state penn if she had been guilty the sentencing is totally unheard of.. A foot ball player who drugged and raped and video’d the rape was only given 15 years in our town and my friend is facing 40 years for a crime she did nt commit..
    the family hired an attorney for 18 thousand dollars. mortaged their houses to come up with the cash and he did nothing for my friend. The entire court room experience was less than an hour long and she was found guilty.. There was no real court… Now another lawyer has taken 20 thousand from the family and left several families without things they need plus refinancing their homes..
    This woman did not commit this horrific crime. She has never had any problems in her life with the law, drugs or anything that would cast a bad shadow onthat family.. We attended church together all their lives and she did well in school and was adored by everyone. There is no hist ory of any kind of crime and certainly not sex against a child. She grew up in a soft ball atmosphere and then as her children came of age she enrolled them in the game.. the family attended the games or practice every day of the week. They were known all over our state for their attitude and their life style of family life and love for chidlren. t his just cannot be happening. she has already spent 18 months in solidary confinement and has done without proper food and clothing..she sleeps on a concrete bed with a concrete pillow and one sheet that is too small to cover her body.. the food is substandard and not fit for a human. its filled with bugs and she is forced to eat from a machine. This has caused her to gain weight terribly.
    She was born with her hips out of place and lived in a body cast for two years and now the ball playing has caused her hips to come out of joint again and the pain is unbearable. she was under the care of speciaist before this horrific thing occurred but the prison refuses her medication and/or the care of a physician.
    There is no way that this woman committed this crime. She is a tiny person and not quite five feet tall she was tiny and feminine and now she is looking like an animal.. no grooming no contact with other people and no personal care.. its unbeievable. She did not commit this crime..she could not and the psychiatrist report said that in so many words.. but the report was not presented in court.
    This family is suffering so terribly.. My husband and i raised a law enforcement family.. we both worked for the Metro Police Dept in Nashville and I know these words are used for terrible crimes when the person is very guilty. but I know without any doubt in my mind at all Not one tiny bit of this accusation is correct. She has not had the care and the help of an attorney who made any real attempt at helping her and if you can do anything i pray that you will at least look into it and see that Im telling yu the truth. she will die there in that prison and she is not guilty..

      Patricia,
      What a sad story. Unfortunately most lawyers in my opinion do not know how to defend these cases. For an entire case to be less than an hour in total is unforgivable. I suspect it will take much more money to help you out of this situation.

    Good Morning,

    I’m in an crazy situation I was watch my 2 month old son and my girlfriends niece who was suspended from school,because her grandmother who has custody of her wanted her to do some work around our house to keep busy. I told her grandmother she can help me put up the Christmas tree and fix the branches back in place She said I’m. Before I got to the Xmas tree I was tending to the baby doing laundry and fix a cord so our angel could be put on top off the tree. From 11am to 1:15pm I told her to watch to tv because I had to move some stuff around in the garage in order to get to the tree. Around 1:45pm I brought the tree in and she helped fix the tree limbs and went back to watching tv. At 2Pm I got the baby to sleep and put him in the crib in me and my girlfriends room and closed the door a little bit and asked her could she keep an eye on him, put him on his if he moves around a little so can I get garage back in order she says yes. Around 2:15pm I get back upstairs to find my front door open she’s gone but thank God my son was ok in his crib sleep.I tried to call her grandmother but got no answer. I find out from a very upset and hurt girlfriend she got a ride from her mom and went over to her grandmothers house and said I tried to unbutton her pants and use a rule I on her but she stopped it before it went to far.they went to Children MERCY Hospital so she can get checked out and the hospital could do nothing since no skin contact happen. They filled a police report and went to K.v.c.Now her grandma and my girlfriend wants to know how come she didn’t call her grandmother since she has custody and why did she call her mom. Her mother has warrants and is not liked by the family because she can get her daughter or her personally to do undermined things that’s why the grandmother has custody of her 2 brothers too please help

    Hello- My daughter-in-law took my grandson of out state without my son’s knowledge and filed for a PPO which due to the Thanksgiving Holiday he was unable to secure representation or allowed to get time off from a new job. He is a fulltime student and the position is work study. In the PPO what she is claiming were actions taken by my son were actually perpetrated by her! My Son now cannot speak to his child for a year other than mailed letters. This is the exact same thing her Mother did to her ex-husband. How does one fight against false allegations when they are used to get the upper hand in a divorce/custody case and the child is with his actual abuser but they are protected by the courts?

  36. Brandi Sample says:

    Two years ago my little brother was accused of Sexual aggrivated assualt on my little step sister. It took her over 3 years to tell and she waited until she went to church camp to tell our pastor of the alleged abuse. My brother ended up turning himself in because Mansfield PD was going after him hard. He got 20 years in a state prison.

    While this went on, My step sister has been in and out of the mental instituion and never gets better. She has already accused an ex of holding her at knife point and raping her. She cuts herself all of the time and she basically just wants attention in any way possible. She has ran away from her mothers house and told a complete stranger that she was in fear of her life at home… why? Because she wasn’t getting her way. I have figured her out! She was so jealous of my step dad and my little brother’s relationship that she had to find a way to get my little brother out of the picture and so she screamed Sexual assault! There are so many police reports on her from running away, etc.

    There is of course more to the story that this but it would take my about 3 days to put it all in persepective. I just want justice for my little brother! We need an attorney that will help us in reopening his case and getting him home! I am begging for someone to please help us! The evidence is there, No one wants to deal with it.

  37. Loretta says:

    I will tried to make it brief. Police, detectives and cps has been called on me by someone at the school/school district. It is a retaliation due to the fact that I have advocate for my daughter and informed the school district how the teachers has verbal and physical, and mentally abuse my special need daughter. She was beaten up my three classmates and she had a seizure. I requested home school and they send me a undercover social worker as teacher and he was secretly video recording, and tape recording while he ask my daughter questions and myself. The school district rather I.E.P team got together among other members of L.A.U.S.D and send a uncover teacher again who did the same thing and report back to them. The administrators of the school has been trying to get my daughter from me since May of 2016 after I reporting them to school district. However, I just finished I.E.P. meeting and have not signed the document yet but soon will. Don’t want to. The I.E.P team has made it a choice to send her to this school that I see officers in and out of that school all the time. My problem is that I have a feeling they are going to tried or they will remove my daughter from that school on false allegation because, they are very upset that I brought what they was doing to the light so they trying to make it seem that me and my daughter is lying about what happen to her and they trying to turn the table on me. I have pictures, videos, documentation, voice recording, letters etc., This is not the first time false allegation was brought against. I did not know my rights at the time and let them in and they illegally took my son and lied about it. But, I got him back. Can someone intervene for my daughter and myself that she does not get removed from the school that they are sending her to. I do not have much finance but I willing to pay what I can or do a payment plan. I just wanted the best education for my daughter and stop her being bullied by teachers, administrators, kids and staffs. All the advocating that i have done for my daughter since she started day school until now. We back to ground one and the district win again. Not only they win, There next step is to get cps to remove my daughter from the new school they are going to place her in, make false allegation and question her like the detective did at my home. When they sent the law enforcement, detectives and cps to my house. The detectives told me they will not be coming to my house anymore and they were sorry that they bother me. The school administrator still want give up and trying to do whatever she can to get my daughter remove from me by reporting false allegations to cps. I rather be prepared then sorry and not wait for the last moment.Can someone help me? Thank you for taking out your busy schedule to read and maybe address my issue.

  38. Trina says:

    In june of 2015 my son was asked to leave his home. A home he provided for his wife (of 22 months) her 13 yr old step daughter, his 5yr old daughter and 3 yr old son. He began dating his wife in 2008 and shortly after she became pregnant. The step daughter was 6 yrs old at the time. my son was the only real father she had known. Fast forward to May 2015, it was very apparent that my daughter in law was very unhappy with my son. She voiced it openly. Then in less than a month our families entire life is shattered. My son worked for the city, bought cars and a home for this woman (who had nothing and no credit) participated in raising all three of the children. My son was asked to leave his home because the 13 yr old stated to the school counselor that he made her feel uncomfortable. August 2015 grand jury where my son was asked some general questions and a week later he is notified that he will be indicted and arraigned an attempted sexual abuse charges.
    hired a very expensive attorney out of Portland for the criminal charges and another for his divorce proceeding. He is terminated from his city job in October 2015.
    Ordered to have supervised visits for his 5yr and 3 yr old. Ordered no contact with any one under 18. Continued to pay for everything until his unemployment ran out.
    my son has cooperated and followed all rules.
    through out this ordeal the district attorney has offered plea bargins with each one a lesser amount of time, my son has declined each. In October 2016 the 13 yr old is now 14 yrs old. apparently tried to commit suicide by jumping off the roof. (mom took her to the hospital)and the 14 yr old was admitted to a mental facility until Nov 22, 2016.
    I discovered that the 14 yr old is part of a suicide group at school. Another member attempted the same type of suicide. I have correspondence that they are comparing their stays in the facilities. I am just highlighted some points. There are so many that I could write about. On December 9th, 2016 this same 14 yr old threw a rock through a back window climbed into the home of my son’s father where he has been living since june 2015 with a Knife intending to kill my son. My son was not home at the time. The 14 yr old was arrested and is being detained in a juvenile facility until a in house mental facility can be found that she can be admitted too. The 14 yr is being charged with Burg1 and attempted assault1. After spending a large amount of money on the criminal attorney and who has been willing to fight for my son. Attorney calls today and says that my son should take a plea bargin.
    I am asking is this truly correct. We have a jury trial scheduled in January 2017. Also I failed to mention my son is the second man that this has happened to in my daughter in law and 14 yr old daughters life. The first man supposedely at the age of 3, case was dismissed, only to be reopened and charged almost 5yrs later when suddenly the 14 yr old remembered when she was 9yrs old and the first man was tried and convicted around 2011.

    any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! My son is a good man, never been in trouble for anything, loves his family.

    • Trina says:

      I failed to mention also that my son has approximately 24 hours to make a decision to accept a plea bargin. I have trouble understanding why the sudden change in our attorney. Is this normal practice?

  39. matt willis says:

    I am writing in trying to find out if there is anything I can do.
    today is about the 10th to 15th time cps has came to my home saying that there has been an accusation that I either don’t have food in my home, my children don’t have the proper winter attire, that I lock my children outside. all which are truly truly false, one it is impossible to lock my front door and I don’t have another door. the front door can only be locked from the outside which would mean if they are locked out so am I. 2nd food, they have made this accusation several times each time they come and look I have more than enough food in my home to feed everyone there for at least a week if not 2 weeks. 3rd the lack of proper winter attire, now this is even a bigger false accusation because the school and fire department donated my children’s winter gear(hat, gloves, snow boots, winter coats and snow pants) so tell me again how my kids are in any kind of danger. one I am married with 3 kids one girl and 2 boys and my wife is carrying our 4th. I work 2 full time jobs, and receive little help from the state or federal because of my income level which is fine, I’m happy I cover 98% of my costs of living. but to get visits from cps every 2 weeks for they say a new accusations is a bunch of B.S. I don’t know why but I feel like someone is trying to get cps to take my kids from me and my wife because of the way I live. I live in a tiny house with limited things. I don’t have running water, we haul our drinking and washing water. I don’t have flushing water we rent a porta pot. and we do our laundry at either a family members home or the laundry mat and we do our showers at a family members home also all of which has been proven several times.
    I really need some help fighting this if feel like I’m being harassed at this point and need any help I can get, to battle against this agency.
    Thank you for any advise I could get even if its to tell me there is nothing I can do to stop them from coming to my home every 2 weeks saying I am not doing something right and then sending me a letter or calling telling us the case is being closed due to lack of evidence or whatever they call it.

    • admin says:

      Dear Matt,
      It sounds like someone is being overly vigilant (if not evilly intended) or vicious (if evilly intended). The problem is there is no way to know for sure who is making the claims against you because of anonymity laws regarding reporting allegations. CPS Must investigate each claim, no matter how many. Have you asked them how to stop the false allegations that are being made against you? Maybe they can do something because they usually know who is doing it. They are prohibited from telling you. You could also consult with a lawyer to see if he/she can get anywhere on finding out or trying to stop it.

    Hi my story is about my infant son he was born on November 9 2016. During my pregnancy I was prescribed by a doctor a medication. The baby had to be weened off the medication at birth so he stayed in the hospital for a couple of weeks . I stayed in the hospital with him day and night threw the entire process witch any mother who loves there child would. Both my sons dad and I. So to get to the point Caleb my infant son was very fussy on night he was crying for an hour or so straight. It was 3 am I went and got one of the nurses and told her he was crying continuously.. She sat in the rocking chair and finally got him settled after about an hour. She then handed my baby to me in the hospital bed I was so tired I know the nurse could see I was exhausted. Why she didn’t offer to take him I don’t know. After she handed the baby to me in the bed she said hold him for a while because he’s probably going g to cry when you put him down back in his bed. So I held him and ended up falling a sleep with the baby in my arms. Baby Caleb rolled off the bed and hit his head on the floor. He ended up getting a very small fracture on his head. But as of that they found nothing else on the MRI. The hospital reported the incident to social services and they also told them about the medication I was being prescribed during my pregnancy. When it was time for Caleb to be discharged child services put my baby in foster care and wouldn’t let me or his father or any one in our family take my son. How can they do this we are supposed yo have a 72 hour hearing but because of the holidays its schedule exactly seven days out this is complete bullshit!!!!!! My son is missing his very first Christmas with his parents and his big brother this whole situation is horrible I feel like they have kidnapped my child! How can this be??? Will I get my baby back at the 72 hour hearing if for some out of this world reason they don’t want my baby with me.. Will he be able to stay with his father in our apartment and I will just leave… We do not want our baby with strangers please innocent mother needing help!!! How is a sleep deprived mother caring for her baby 24-7 who had an accident neglect or child abuse.. I didn’t intentionally mean to fall asleep with him in the bed…. If every parent got there child taken away over accidents no one would have there children.

      Dear Amy,
      It is my opinion you should contact a lawyer to help you through the maze of CPS. I have worked on many cases like this and the rules often change. When talking to the lawyer, ask if it was proper protocol to give you the child in the condition you were in.

    35 years minimum to life, and two charges that were ten years minimum to life.

    The police and DA ignored the physical examination where the doctor said, verbatim, that nothing was out of the ordinary, and that a DNA test didn’t even need to be done. Even though the girl hadn’t had a bath since the alleged event 4 days prior.

    They ignored the girl’s own statements that she didn’t know what happened, the first two times they interviewed her. The third time, they isolated her in a room at the police station and showed her naked anatomical dolls, and told her exactly what they wanted to hear. They ignored much of what she said then, and embellished the rest to form a criminal complaint.

    I’m ~ $49,000 in debt because of this.

    If you google my name, what comes up is the two newspaper articles with my picture saying the three charges.

    I’m lucky I was able put myself in that much debt or I would be in jail. The charges did get dismissed. That was less than a month ago.

    This girl told her friend something like that she liked me. I played soccer and frisbee with her in the past with other neighbor kids. So her friend told her own mother, and the friend’s mother called the police. That’s when the police started harassing people (and that not just my words, but in the words of the friend’s mother’s husband, whose wife was arrested after they took her report).

    I want to get these newspaper articles deleted. The people who say that they can publish that “because it’s true that I got charged” – I’m not disagreeing with you, but there is more here going on. I have certain rights to live a peaceful life. It was false. It was slander.

    This is angering and unjust and massively damaging, and even endangering to me. I’m not exaggerating. And it is completely false. The wording “was charged with” makes it not “technically false” but that’s just a technicality — realistically, it is a falsity, and even “technically”, at best it’s still absolutely misleading. This was not my fault. I literally did nothing wrong.

    What I did do was answer my door, my door which does not have a privacy window / peep hole, to this girl who wanders around the neighborhood asking random people for food. I thought it was the mail I was expecting from Amazon. I told her clearly to stay out of my house, but her and her friend followed me inside while I was getting food for them (because they refused to leave and she was putting herself into my doorway and promised to leave if I gave them food). They were in there with the door open for like 30 seconds.

    Want me to apologize for feeding a neighborhood kid? Fine. I knew I shouldn’t associate with her. But I didn’t have a peep hole on my door or else I wouldn’t have answered my door to her. Want me to apologize for not moving out sooner? Fine, I regret that too. But do I deserve to be forced to live in poverty for the next years or to have my name just ruined for the rest of my life? Old friends google my name, younger people I tutored or baby-sat google my name and see this? Or someone I start dating?

    If these records are getting sealed, why don’t the newspapers seal their records too?

    • admin says:

      I would ask the paper to write a story about the charges being dismissed. That is the only balance I am aware of. Maybe you should talk to a lawyer to see if there is anyway to push it? I couldn’t agree with you more that the damage the papers do is terrible and lifetime and they really just don’t seem to care too much about it. Dismissals don’t sell papers.

    I need help. I don’t know if it’s harassment or not but it’s starting to feel that way…..My oldest son was born about 8 weeks early and due to this he has always had a low immune system and he has asthma. Every time I take him to the doctor BC he is sick he always ends up admitted BC his sickness has affected his breathing so they mainly keep him to get his oxygen back up to be able to come home. Yet every time we do the right thing by taking him in to be seen dfs always intervenes in our life. In November he got sick twice. The first time we took him into the hospital, they saw him gave him steroids and sent him home and told us to give him his breathing treatment. We did so and during his breathing treatment he stopped breathing as a reaction to the steroid so we called an ambulance and he was taken in and admitted. Once again I don’t see how we did anything wrong. Then two weeks later he got sick again. we took him in they saw him gave him antibiotics and sent him home which once again he got worse (this is a pattern for him which we bring up to the doctors every time) so we took him back same night and he was admitted and due to this routine we are constantly being harassed by dfs. They will not leave us alone even though we do everything right by him and our other kids. What should I do? I’m tired of jumping through hoops when I’m already doing everything right, it’s just his immune system and something he will hopefully grow out of. Please help.

  45. Hopeless and so devasted, Where is the Justice??? says:

    I have been through the hardest year of my life. Last year I caught my wife having a secret relationship and this was after several horrible things she did to our boys. She started lying so easily even without flinching. I gave her divorce papers and told her I couldn’t be with someone that can lie so easily and have a relationship with another man while pretending everything is fine to me.

    After I gave her divorce papers, I left for a business trip the next day, and she went to the police and filed a false police report for battery which was found to not be credible and no marks, she changed her story a couple of times, and she also came in with another guy, according to the police officer. He said all she wanted was this guys money and they told her they couldn’t help her.

    The following day she goes and files an exparte TPO against me and now claims more acts of violence and now against our two infant children. She claims threats to kill, abuse, etc. She specifically leaves out that she tried to file a police report and also leaves out that I gave her divorce papers which she admitted to the police officer and it is on the report from the previous day.

    The following day she gets diagnosed with a mental illness and gets put on medication. This all happens while she is talking to me all week, and never says anything about what she did. On this day I tell her to forget about the divorce because of the illness and we can work it out. She agrees and thanks me repeatedly and says I love you.

    The next day I fly back home to find her and my children missing. I call everyone frantically worried, and even call the police. That’s when I find out that she filed a TPO against me for domestic violence. I was shocked and devastated, I couldn’t sleep, I didn’t know where my children were, if she was leaving the state with them to be with that man, etc.

    The next day I filed the divorce in the courts so that my children wouldn’t be taken from me and I asked for enforcement of my prenup, joint physical custody, 50% of marital assets, and I would still pay full child support.

    The next week, she gets an attorney, and then contacts my attorney. They file a continuance to push the tpo hearing out and in the interim of almost 40 days, they try to push me to first set aside my prenup in return to dismiss the tpo, then alimony, then one lump sum payment. I refused all, because I didn’t do anything wrong. My attorney at the time said I should sign a consent because TPO hearings can go badly for fathers, and I still refused. I refused to let my children be used and extorted for money. I switched attorney’s because I didn’t want to settle and would rather prove my case in court. I was so naive.

    It just so happens that our first status conference was two days before the tpo hearing. That morning her attorney talks to my attorney and says there’s really no evidence, its just a custody case. We show up and both my wife and her attorney don’t show up for the 30 day status conference. We end up getting called in to the room with the JO, and he asks where the defendant is and we don’t know. They end up calling my wife’s attorney and she says she didn’t know she had to be there. Now she says that there is a police report and that there are pictures. We were shocked because she said there was no evidence and now all of a sudden there is a police report with pictures. Now we only have two days for the tpo hearing and it takes 3-5 days to get a copy of a police report. There’s some deceptive strategy here for us to not get a copy in time for the hearing. Late in the evening the following day and the night before the tpo hearing her attorney calls with a consent order offer. With child support, supervised visitation, one lump sum payment of alimony. Also a guardian, and she chooses a psychologist.

    At this point I’m so devastated and at the hearing two days before I told my attorney I don’t know who my wife is anymore. How can she do this, what else is she capable of?? Well we end up getting a copy of the so called police report, and its actually in our favor showing no visible signs of bruising and no cause for investigation. but we signed a consent order that now almost 9 months later still is in effect.

    4 months in to the consent order my wife admits that she lied about the abuse with my kids to the supervisor. The supervisor also states that my wife might have some type of disorder and that she is the one who needs supervision. She tells that to the guardian and to the psychologist. We put a motion to dismiss supervision and for an emergency hearing. Well you think things would be going well for me now, but now all of a sudden the psychologist who admitted that she was friends with my wife’s attorney, now comes up just 4 days later after our motion and states that additional safe guards need to be put in place for me.

    With no issues with supervision for almost 5 months in fact quite the opposite, showing the bond I have with my children and how much we love each other. The only misconduct has been with my wife by slandering me and passing rumors and false statements to all my neighbors. Trying to isolate me from my kids and everyone around me. She also kept them from me on several occasions not complying with the order.

    The guardian has only seen me with my kids just 1 time for one hour in 7 months!!!! The psychologist has never seen me with the kids and only saw me 4 times. Even with all the evidence we presented, emails, texts, facebook posts etc, she comes out with this unbelievable “opinion” which my therapist states that she should loose her lisc for what she did. Now we are 7 months in and we were going to mediation and now told them we are going to trial.

    All this, and what my wife has gotten away with, with no evidence, in fact the wife of the guy she was having a relationship with called me and told me she made him break up with my wife and they are reconciling. She said her husband admitted to cheating with my wife. I also have text messages between him and my wife. Here we are now preparing to go to trial and her attorney now wants me to pay for her attorney fees. I spent over $100k so far and I am still so devastated, I don’t know where my kids are now living since she moved again, and my oldest recently told me about other men with my wife and that they are together. My children are so young and so confused, I don’t know what else to do. I feel hopeless, and don’t understand how our legal system can let something like this happen. I don’t have a criminal record, I work with kids. Never even had incident with Police my entire life, and somehow her words are more credible than facts. Failed to mention that she said her ex husband was abusive and tried to kill her, she said she then filed for divorce, but I find out that he filed and she left the marital home just as she did with me and similar time frame of about 3 years. We also find out that her husband had to file divorce action without knowing where she was, and it ended up being that she moved in with another guy.

    So a pattern of behavior, misconduct by her and her attorney, false police report, false tpo, mental illness, and I’m the one who has visitation. Where is the justice in this country???

      These cases are very difficult and in my opinion need to be fought very aggressively. Most of the time I see dads being reactive instead of reactive. In my experience as a consultant or as the Executive Director of NCADRC, when I see that, it usually does not go well for the dad. Don’t give up hope they can be fought and won!

  46. Stacey Head says:

    Hello,

    I’m contacting you on behalf of my brother, James. On Sunday, January 15th, 2017, he was arrested for Domestic Violence. My brother was falsely accused. His girlfriend (in which he has a little boy who is about 6 weeks old now) has a history of volatile behavior. On Sunday, she woke up and started arguing with him right away (not sure what it was about, most of the time my brother doesn’t either). When she gets like this, he’ll go over to his friends house and waits until it blows over. He was watching football and had a few beers (however,not enough to cause him to be drunk or out of control). His friend (who called my mom and I and told us exactly what happen because he lives in Medford, Oregon and we live in Lynnwood, Washington) explained that when he went to the bathroom, my brother went over to check on her. As soon as my brother walked in, she started throwing things at him and starting hitting him. Protecting himself, he grabbed her and restrained her on their bed. Unfortunately (and we believe she did this on purpose), she had their son on the bed and when he restrained her, she almost landed on him. My brother went back over to his friends house and told him they needed to call the police. My brother was the one who called the police. The cops came and took his statement, and then went next door and took her statement. We are unsure of what she said, but whatever it was, it caused the police to come back over and arrest my brother. He had four charges: Assault in the 4th degree (domestic violence), Harassment, disorderly conduct 2nd degree and Reckless endangerment. His original bail was $17,500. He was let out last night, Monday, January 16th, due to overcrowding at the jail. He’s had a conflict of information of the court dates, but he will be going down to check it out today. He is not allowed back to his house, she has moved out. Her name is not on the lease, but due to the fact that she’s lived there for the last year and has gotten mail there, it seems they consider this squatters rights. He is not allowed to contact her. However, she has been trying to initiate contact with him. She is currently in a custody fight for her daughter with her ex-husband. She has said she is not going to press charges. We are most worried about their little boy. His girlfriend has a record of violence towards her ex as well. We want to know what the options are. Our family is not wealthy by any means, but we will do whatever it takes to protect my brother and his son. As I said, I am contact you on behalf of my brother, because I want to know what options he has. Any advice would be helpful.

    Thank you for your time,

    Stacey Head

  48. Jacqueline D says:

    Recently my uncle was called by her daughter. His daughter said she never wanted to see him again and hated him. My uncle was very confused and didn’t know where that came from. When he tried to call her back, she didn’t pick up and blocked him and the family from social media so that no once could get ahold of her. Soon after he was called by his ex-wife Mother of the “victim” accusing him of raping their daughter when she was 7. (She is now in her 20s, married with children) Then she went on accusing him of raping 3 other girls at the age of 5 and and another girl who was much older.
    Bullet point facts:
    1. They were divorced many years ago (She was cheating on him)
    2. He wanted to get divorced long before they did but helped her get her u.s. citizenship before they did
    3. He lives in Texas. she lives in Nebraska
    4. The daughter always wanted to go live with him because she “couldn’t stand her mom anymore” She communicated this to him telling him this shortly before being acused.
    5. His Ex-wife’s brother is in the hospital and need money (Half a million) for his medical needs.
    6. Ex-wife comes from a family who likes to scam, and are into drugs.
    7.The daughter is manipulative, stubborn and has been cough in many lies
    8. She would visit her Grandma (her dads mom) In Mexico for long periods of time and would not respect house rules coming in at 1-3 in the morning. When her father would tell her to follow instruction her responses were ” well my mom lets me”
    9. Ex-wife’s brother is married to my uncle’s sister. He has also been a burden in our family. He has has caused lot of harm to my uncles sister. At one point he even nearly burned down their home. he has been in and out of jail in Mexico and I am pretty sure in the states as well.
    10. The day that she called him to accuse him was the day she had found out that her daughter had been raped by him. that same day she also found out that 4 other girls (her relatives) had also been raped by him. The eldest girl that was supposedly rapped had told her mom however her mom said ” We cant report him, he looks so nice” which i think is stupid how can a mother whose child has just said that a man raped her not report someone of rape just because they look “nice” why didn’t she do it then?
    11. This happened many years ago while they lived in Nebraska together soon after their divorce he moved to California.
    12. The ex-wife says that she now understands why her daughter has been troubled and had a hard time with her and disliked all their wedding photos and talking about her father. when in fact, the daughter always wanted to move with his dad.
    13. the ex-wife always talked badly about my uncle and would say things of that sort to his daughter
    14. Daughter ran off with boyfriend and turns out she was pregnant shortly after her 15th birthday.

    I personally believe that the ex-wife is just trying to get money from my uncle to help his brother who is in the hospital because he was shot up. My family is very afraid of what will happen because #1 this is false and #2 my uncle was finally happy with his new family (3 kids), home and job in Texas and my uncle is very hurt by this. Can the above be used as proof that he is innocent. he talked to an attorney already however the attorney can not do anything there has not been any report to the police on the ex-wife’s side. so far she only threaten him by phone.
    My uncles believes that once you get accused of rape that its it for you and that they will always believe women over men.

  49. Edith says:

    A friend’s 30 year old son is wrongly accusing me of sexually abusing him when he was an infant. This is a totally false accusation as I was never left alone with him or his brother. I have 4 children of approximately the same age he is. My husband was always home as he is self employed. His parents also know this could not and did not take place. The young man is also making false claims against his parents about neglect, illegal activities, making money on him, having affairs with their employers, etc. We all feel he is experiencing psychotic episodes. Should I be worried about his claims? I work in the educational field. I am not sleeping over this. He has an appointement with a psychiatric doctor. Is there anything I should do? They live out of state and I have not spoken to him directly yet. Thank you for any advise you can provide.

    So back in October I was using a app called whisper just to past some time at night before i feel asleep, I seen this post on there about some girl saying how she felt like running away, the app said we were only 49 miles away the app said gender was female and age was unknown so I thought what the hell i’d reach out to this person and offer them a life line someone to talk to so they didn’t feel like no one cared. So i sent this person a message and said no one should feel that way or think about running away all the time, if you need someone to talk to you can message me here or call me and i gave the person my cell number the next day i got a text from a number i didn’t know saying that she would have texted sooner if she didn’t put in the wrong number and we started texting a bit then it graduated upto talking on skype and the phone from there, we talked about everything she wanted to talk about, nothing sexual I informed her that I was seeing someone and was just here to be a friend and asked her to not go there with any of the subjects she was talking to me about my birthday rolled around and it was the first one i was celebrating with out my grams being alive, she passed away jan 23rd 2016 i had taken care of her for 14 years so it was a rough birthday, she sent me a text saying happy birthday i attempted to send one back but the phone i had at the time was messing up and wouldn’t send out text messages properly so i called her and said thank you and told her that i planed to spend the night out where i use to camp with my grams and she sounded bummed and asked if she could join me i said sorry my girl wouldn’t be too happy if i had someone with me that wasn’t her and I didn’t want to have anyone with me since i wanted to be alone out there just thinking about all the fun i had with my grams every summer out at the place we camped all summer long, and she had made a threat about running away i said to her please don’t do that i don’t want to be worried about you on my birthday, and she said she wouldn’t and i sent her to bed cause i was packing my jeep and talking to my cousin at the same time. i joked with my cousin about going to get a girl to spend the night with out at the camp site and then said i doubt my girl would be too happy with that so i’ll just be out there alone with gram’s, so i went out to the camp site parked the jeep and climbed in the back to lay down for the night i checked my phone and it had like 1 bar of service so i called the girl again to make sure she was still at home cause what she said had me worried that she was seriously going to run away she answered the phone right away and assured me that she wasn’t going to run away and i told her i was out at the camp site that if she couldn’t reach me there’s little to no service out there, and we talked for a few more minutes before i hung up and shut my phone off of the night to save the battery cause i couldn’t find the charge cable for my phone even though i thought i packed it, so i went to sleep and woke up the next day turned on my phone around 10am and had a bunch of happy birthday posts on facebook and one text message from my cousin saying the cops were looking for me that a girl went missing last night and she told them that i went to pick up some girl before going to spend the night out in the woods, i called her and said you told them i did what? and she said you said you were going to get a girl, i said you must have stopped listening to me when i said my girlfriend wouldn’t be happy with that cause i’m out here alone i never picked up any girl. and she said oh well i didn’t know and i said to her now what did you get me into she said well the cops were just here looking for you cause you were the last person who talked to her i said yeah she wished me a happy birthday and my phone was messing up and wouldn’t send out the text messages so i called her and talked to her for a few that’s it. she said is anyone with you i said no why would there be just making sure, the cop left a number and she gave me the number and i tried to call it and the call kept dropping so i drove into town witch was 20 miles away and called the sheriffs deputy and he asked me if i know the girl that went missing and he read her name off to me and i said yeah i met her on a app called whisper he said oh so you’ve met her i said no i’ve never met her in my life he said that’s not what your cousin told us. i said my cousin told you part of a story not all of what was said because she stopped paying attention because she was on a app called live.me he said oh well what was the rest of the story i said i told her i should go pick up a girl and spend the night out at the camp site where i use to camp with my grandma all summer long but i doubt my girlfriend would be too happy if i did that if it wasn’t her since shes not in this state and the cop said oh so you don’t know where she is, i said no i don’t know where the missing girl is he said well if you here anything let me know right away i said i will do that and i hung up the phone, no sooner did i do that i got a call from my step dad saying that he had a message from some jimmy guy looking for his daughter and that the cops wouldn’t be involved if i just brought her home safely, so i went down to my step dad’s place and listened to the answering machine message copied down the number that was on the caller id and called it only to hit a voice mail that wasn’t set up yet. so i sent jimmy a text message saying the same thing i said to the sheriffs deputy and informed him that i didn’t know where she was and to please not call my step dad again cause he didn’t want to be part of this mess, my step dad asked me if she was with me and i told him no i’ve never met the girl in my life i was just moral support for her and i went out to sunset to camp for the night to be closer to gram since it was my first birthday with out her and he said i understand you trying to be close to your grandma and that’s understandable i told him that i had planned on spending the day just going to all the places that i had been with my grams just to try to be closer to her and he said sounds like a good way to spend your birthday and then he asked me what i planned to do with the rest of the year i said that i was thinking about relocating to a place alot warmer since i can’t stand cold weather and snow anymore and that i really had no reason to stay here anymore since i was just here to take care of gram and she’s now gone and he said i don’t blame you i’d go somewhere warm if i could to and he asked where i was thinking of going i said that i was thinking of heading to texas cause that’s where my girl is and he said that’s a warm place i said it’s perfect for me since i can’t stand being cold he said you’ve never liked being cold i said nope and said well i’m gonna get going i got alot to do today and he said he loved me and i said it back and left and continued my journey for the day i would have went to her house but the family sold it so instead i went out to black river falls and spent some time there when i got a rude call from jimmy claiming that he had lock on my gps and that his daughters gps was in the same location i said that sounds like some illegal stuff, i said i have no idea where you kid is now stop harassing me your not the only one who’s tech smart i’m also tech savvy and given the right tools i could track you down to and he quickly changed his tone from accusing me of having her to asking me to help look for her i said to him i have no idea where your daughter is and i’m not near a computer to track her device down so why don’t you login to her stuff since your her dad and do it yourself he said i can turn on her phone i said then do that and stop accusing me of knowing where she is i have no idea where she is i’m trying to spend my birthday remembering my grandma and you accusing me of knowing where your daughter i, is ruining it, i have no idea the same thing i told the cop and yet you can’t seem to get it. i’m gonna go now i’ve got things to do and i hung up on him no sooner hanging up on him i got a call from another number i didn’t know so i answered it and the person asked me if i knew where his sister was i said i don’t know where your sister is just like i told your dad jimmy i don’t know where she is and he said wait who. i said some guy named jimmy said he’s her dad and that he’s looking his daughter and has been sitting her acting all tough with me about it even though i have no idea where your sister is he said that’s not her dad that’s our cousin and then he asked me to reach out to her and see if she would answer me so i sent her a text message saying hey your families worried about you, and then sent another one when you get this call or text me i’m starting to get worried. and i told her brother that and he said thanks and hung up i called the sheriffs deputy back to inform him about this jimmy person who was harnessing me now and all i got was the deputies voice mail so i left a detailed message about what was happening and hung up the phone and continued on with my day. i ended up in a different county and stopped at a restaurant for something to eat but the place only took cash not credit, so i couldn’t eat and then i got another call from a local number that wasn’t in my contacts so i answered it turned out to be dispatch wanting to talk more to me about the missing girl i said i’m not in that county right now i’m not sure what county i’m in she informed me to just dial 911 and they could locate me i said why do i need to be located they said we have some fallow up questions i said oh okay and and when i hung up with her to call 911 my phone died, so i was sitting in my jeep thinking to myself well that’s probably going to make things worse for me, so i started to look around the jeep for my charge cable and the phone i had at the time wouldn’t power up if it didn’t have at least 15% battery life so i knew that was going to take like a half hour depending on how slowly it charged so i started to make my way back towards the county i lived in and along the way i decided to drive through where she was from to see if i could possibly find her since i had a pretty good idea as to what she looked like since she had added me on instagram like a couple of days prior to this happening and i had looked at it and i had a rough idea of where she was from based on her cell number so i headed over towards that county just to see if i could find her since i was worried about her now at this point since everyone kept harassing me about her i didn’t find anything and by that time it was dark out so i started on my way back towards home, i looked at my phone and it said 23% so i turned it back on i had a voice mail from the 911 operator telling me that the police wanted to meet at a gas station to talk to me about this girl and i had messages from jimmy that were basically death threats or at least they started to feel like them at that point (i still have all those text messages) so on my way back home i dialed 911 like the lady asked me to do i got connected to the dispatcher for the county i was in i said that i was told to call 911 to and the phone dropped so i dialed again and began to explain to the 911 operator what was going on when the phone dropped again. so i called back apologized to the operator and the operator asked me if i was driving i said yes he asked me to pull over so i did and i began to tell him why i was calling in and it dropped again. i called in again and he said how about i just text you i said i didn’t know that was possible so i said yeah sure go ahead and he texted me i texted him back telling why i was calling in that i was requested to by another dispatcher in a different county that i wanted to know where they wanted to meet me to talk and he responded back with your free to go home now they don’t need you anymore. i said ok and asked if he was sure cause i didn’t want anymore harassing messages from jimmy or anyone else that night and he said everything is cleared up you can go home now if you want. so i made my way home stopped for gas and then went home only to be greeted with my cousin telling me i needed to find a new place to live because of the cops showing up constantly for me that day i said to her maybe if you didn’t tell them i went to pick up that girl they wouldn’t be looking to talk to me constantly she said you need to find somewhere else to stay i said ok and i packed my stuff and moved out that night.. i thought it was done and over with so i left that state since she had been found with nothing wrong with her she apparently had ran away to skip school for the day i received a phone call 3 weeks after that she had ran away again and they wanted to know if i knew where she was i said i’m not even in that state and i haven’t talked to her since that all occurred unless she’s messaged me on a different name pretending to be someone else i haven’t heard from her he said if you do give us a call i said right cause you believed me last time i told you i didn’t know where she was and you guys gave my info to her cousin jimmy and her family to harassing me the whole day i was trying to be alone and try to remember my grandma who passed away, he said i understand if you hear from her let us know i said sure thing. goodbye and i hung up. then i got a call 3 days ago from the shierffs deputy asking me when i was going back to that state i said when it never snows there again and the tempature stays above 65 year round he said so maybe june or july i said i don’t know i doubt it. he said well i need to talk to you about the girl who went missing she said that you had intercourse with her and oral i said i’ve never met the girl in my life how is that possible he said so you admit that you had oral and intercourse with her i said i’ve never met her in my life so that should answer your question as to if i had anything to do with her he said so your denying it i said yes i’m denying it. he said that the county she’s part of is looking into charging me with csp with a minor i said to him i never met her how is that possible? he said i’m not at liberty to say we have your cellphone pinging off near a location hers was pinging off from i said well i did attempt to go look for her towards the end of the day since i was being accused by everyone that i knew where she was when i had no clue as to where she was at the time, he said well she’s telling a different story and described your jeep, i said that’s great my jeep was on my facebook and she was on my facebook briefly so of course she could describe my jeep since then i’ve restricted prying eyes to my facebook he said well she said you were together, so i said to him i’ve said this 4 times now i’ve never met the girl in my life i met her on a app called whisper she was talking about harming herself and running away i offered her a ear because i felt bad for her the app didn’t say how old she was just said how far she was from me, he said so i’ll put in my report that you were uncooperative with my questions i said to him why not put the truth i never met her in my life and never plan on meeting her, he said that’s all the prosecutor isn’t in a hurry with this case i’ll get back to you if something comes up and he hung up on me, since then i’ve removed the photos of my jeep and changed the privacy settings on facebook because i fell like my privacy was being invaded, i don’t know what to do since i’ve never met the girl in my life and it doesn’t seem like the cops believe what i’m telling them.
