Those here keep continually saying they KNOW who I am but you just don't.
I live hundred of miles away from this small town drama and I believe it shows you location on the posts.
So you think that I am Mr. Price and I drive hundreds of miles each way to post then return home?
Seems pretty logical to me.
As for why she came forward now or re-canted or whatever happened, I have no idea. I have only commented about the actual legal process that has happened.
Now I hear rumor (and I always point out if it's a fact or something I've just heard) that the Commonwealth is going to try to bring charges yet again in October with a new Grand Jury. I'm not sure how many times you can continue to try to bring the same charges but she sure seems determined. I don't know for fact that the Grand Jury thing will happen or not. Just rumor that she will try to get charges brought.
I don't know the girl. I have met Rev. John Price.
I'm not related to the Price family in any way.
Thats the dumbest post you have made John or whatever Price you are.Just keep painting you will be in that corner soon.

The Post doesn't always show the exact town that you are in. Sometimes it even changes. I have a relative that shows her posts as coming from another state. You haven't proved anything.

I haven't been keeping up with the comments lately, and I haven't posted a comment in a long time. I was reading the comments posted by "Been Praying" it seems to me if the person that are posting these comments, as the saying goes "PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS", if you were really living up to your name, and you read the Bible, you would not have to be trying to convince anyone that Mr. John Price is not guilty, if you were praying about this problem the way you stay on the internet and post these comments, God would let it be known that Mr. Price is guilty or not guilty in his time, after all he is God and doesn't need any help proving guilt or not guilt. I'm just saying.

I'm not trying to prove he's innocent. In this Country we don't PROVE innocence, we only prove GUILT. I'm merely stated facts. Fact from actual court documents. Not rumor. If I don't know it to be fact, I state that I've merely heard and can't confirm whatever information I might post.

As for the changing of the location. Mine varies between two towns, twenty miles apart. Home and office. Hundreds of miles from Washington Country, VA. Like I said, I'm not a Price, never been a Price nor am related to a Price.

Seems some people just want to believe what they want to believe, no matter what evidence is in front of them.

Please tell me why you are so determined to protect John Price? You have fought endlessly with the same info, over and over again. What strikes your intrest in this case? Why do you call the court house retrieving info about "John Price"? I find this some what strange!! Tell us more!!!

I heard that the family of the victim is considering calling Nancy Grace, from watching her on TV she would love to get a hold of this story. I am sure she would produce her source of where she received her information. I am stating that I "Merely Heard" this information. I can tell you this came from a very reliable source. I guess time will tell.

Why do you call it "protecting" John Price? No one can protect him. No one can sweep anything "under the rug". It's out there, he's been arrested. He's been charged. Charges have been dropped. It's went to the Grand Jury to get re-indicted and no charges were brought. There is rumor that it will again go before the Grand Jury in October.

It's a never ending saga that resembles a witch hunt to me.

If there isn't evidence, then there isn't evidence. Maybe with more time they can dig something up and make it stick. It seems like that's what they are trying to do.

It seems like if John Price were the man most of you here HOPE he is and seem to THINK he is, there would be others in his more than 30 years of Pastoring a Church and running a school. After all men who do this don't just start when they are 65 do they? Why hasn't one single other person come forward?

How much intimidation could he possibly hold against a grown woman? Surely if there were others there is at least one would come forward.

I've considered in the beginning that John Price could be guilty and I've weighed those thoughts with facts and other things surrounding this case.

Have you considered that he just might be INNOCENT?

Have you considered that a man's life has been hell because of something that just might not be true at all? It happens folks, more than you'd like to think.

I'm just not so quick to judge when there is a complete lack of evidence to bring a case to trial. If there was a a shred of evidence, the Grand Jury WOULD have indicted him on charges. So I have to believe with no evidence to prove otherwise, he is indeed innocent.

I'm not protecting, I'm not judging. What I AM is interested in how this all finally ends. In the beginning I wanted to know what was going on, like a LOT of folks. Now I'm not sure why it even continues as it seems there is no evidence to bring charges.

Seems more like a vendetta to get a man than an actual crime occurred.

It happens, for lots of reasons.

Had court Wednesday for stalking! If he leaves this family alone for the next 6 months charges will be dropped if not he will go back to jail with just a phone call! This is giving the courts time to work on the jury trial that's coming up soon!

Why would the family drop the charges???? If he indeed did these things why wouldn't they drop them? It makes no sense.

charges for the molesting are not dropped. They were dropped out of juvenile court so as to proceed with a trial jury for that. All the info and evidence is being gone thru , all witness are being talked to. The protective order is good for 6 more months whereas if we let charges completely drop he and his followers would them be stalking us again! We still have people following us but I look at it this way it's your dime you're wasting and I've got nothing to hide . People that tell the truth and try to live right has nothing to hide!!! All that we ask for is for these children to be safe and free from the sick behavior they've had to endure! May god bless and protect all of the innocent involved and may he bring down a wrath of sickness upon those that are guilty!
