As sister of the accused I can emphatically state that the accusations against mt brother are nothing but lies, lies, lies. This is the grossest miscarriage of justice that I have ever seen. The justice system in our country stinks! There is absolute proof that none of these actions occurred,but the proof was never heard because of threats of prison, which my brother would not live through. To ruin a good man's reputation and life's work is the true crime-all for the sake of extortion and greed. My brother can walk with his head held high and someday stand before God guiltless of a crime he did not commit. Don't believe all you read in the newspaper. There are things behind the scenes which have not been heard or will ever be known. I don't know how these people can live with themselves. Those that truly know and love my brother know the truth, as does God, and that is all that matters. Justice will come for my brother and that justice will be handed down by God Almighty-I hope they are ready for it. The accuser and his family are the ones that will have to live with the lies-not the accused. They've ruined and libeled a decent human being. What goes around comes around. God help them.

Jeanne-

you can believe whatever you need to believe to get you through Thanksgiving dinner at the Pyke casa, but at the end of the day your brother is a convicted child molester. He did it, he knows it, and if you were not in denial you'd know it too. He confessed to the victim and pled guilty. All your other rants are just weak attempts to deal with the unfortunate truth.

Justice will come to her brother from above and I don't think he will like the results. He pled guilty to molesting a child and admitted it on tape. No one ruined his reputation but him. Why don't you look at all the evidence and then make a decision. The evidence is now public record.

Pyke is a Guilty man who took a plea bargain to stay out of the state prison. Innocent people do not plead guilty especially with absolute proof of their innocence. Any man with absolute proof would happily take his day in court. Ruin a good man's reputation and life's work?? What about robbing innocent children of their youth and possibly scarring them for life? As family of some of the victims (reminding you there were 4 victims that came forward and possibly others that did not), we know there is valid evidence and you would know this too if you took a look into it! We suggest starting with public records! If nothing else soothes the soul, you can trust that God sees everything and will render the rightful sentence for your brother.

I guess your Brother did not tell you about his taped-recorded conversation where he admitted to committing these acts or about the man in Kansas who came forward that was also abused by your brother when he was living in Miami.

I understand you dont want to belive the truth not most loving sisters would but the facts are there and even if you dont come to terms with it at least you need to understand that god will forgive you for not seeing the truth and also he will see your brother as someone who screwed up many life but if he one day understands what he did and ask god to forgive him then he might be fogiven to. Even us as humans cant.

As the wife of one of the victims, I can assure you that the abuse did happen. I have lived with the repercussions everyday for the last 15 years. You say that your brother has absolute proof that he is innocent,so where is it? Why didn't he use it? Because it never existed,that's why. You say God will judge his actions and that he will be found innocent in God's eyes and that we will be found guilty of wrongfully accusing your brother. I say that you have that backwards. Even his lawyer said that he was guilty. He said it at my husband's deposition. The victims and their families are not out to get money,we are out to get justice. I don't believe that we got full justice,but on Judgement Day we will. If he repents, God will forgive him,but I am not ready to,at this time. May God have mercy on his soul.

Pyke is a pedophile. He is lucky not to be in prison yet. But with ten years probation, it is probable he will violate and be sent to where he belongs.

The evidence spoke for itself. Being in denial about a relative being a pedophile is understandable. But acting as an enabler is counterprodutive and adds fire to Pkye's pedophilia.

As a pedophile, Pyle should not be allowed loose in decent society.

Pedophiles can't be fixed and they will continue their deviant behavior.

Pyke is a pedophile. That's why he was convicted of such. That's why he's a felon. That's why he's on the Sexual Offender registry.

The evidence speaks for itself. Pike is a pedophile.

I have no bias as I am not part of Dr. Pyke's biological family. I am a medical professional that worked side by side with him and also cared for some of the victoms and their family members as my patients. I do not believe at any time that Dr. Pyke ever molested any child. I don't know if anyone is aware, but 3 of the accusers are in the same family and are brothers. I believe that they were in it for financial gain and jealousy. Dr. Pyke was an excellent doctor and is an excellent person. Sometimes even when you have proof of innocence - there would still be risk that a jury trial could find you guilty. A jury is not trained in law and they often make judgements based on raw emotion and courtroom drama. Sometimes people have to accept a plea b/c of that risk - even if they are innocent. Innocent people have been sentenced by jury to prison before to find out 20 years later that they were not guilty. Dr. Pyke is a good, caring, Christian person and always has been. Please do not believe all that you read in the papers.

APOPKA FLORIDA, Why don't you take the victims and their families out of the picture, pull your head out of the sand and find out for yourself. Obtain the tapes that are Public Record and then you can make a concious judgement as to his innocence unless you would rather not know the Truth and keep your head buried in the sand!

A "medical professional". What does that mean exactly? Why are you being obtruse?

You can't be that educated or you wouldn't have used "that" to describe yourself.

A person is a who. Never mind. I just answered my own question.

If Pyke isn't a pedophile, he lied under oath when he pled guilty.

That is perjury and is punishable by prison.
