"flying****" and "not a tea head" you two really make me laugh. I'm not even sure that y'all aren't the same person. Y'all seem to know so much about this case, why don't y'all give some details, otherwise shut up, what are y'all trying to prove, that y'all know how to say smart **** comments about all of this and you know how to make yourselves look like total complete idiots? Well, I must say, you are doing a good job at that. I'm sure that both of y'all will have a smartazz and idiotic reply to what I have said and I think that is good, because y'all will prove what I said above is true.
It would seem your are drunk literally with DENIAL. Is there a cure for this malady? Its not easy for someone like you feel a tremendous sense of vomiting pain on the inside. You want to believe this thing is a nightmare and it'll go away soon and forever. But hear my child, its not a nightmare, its real whether you want to believe it or not. Just pray that the truth comes out and all the people that are affected by this will be at peace no matter the outcome. Just be strong for yourself and others that can't be strong for themselves. I pray for peace an comfort to the entire family. I do really mean it and the peace that passeth all understanding rest rule an abide forever more.

All I have to say to you "Nobody" is "not a teahead" and myself are not the same person. As for giving you details of the case, it sounds from your tone, that you would not believe it even if you saw it happen. It is difficult to believe that human beings can do such horrible things.

I do know the family. And years ago knew them quite well. Mr. Hope is an abusive, controlling, manipulating pig. He made his family live in constant fear of actual fist fights and mental RAGE. I am saddened by the thought that he is even capable of this horrific crime. I am also saddened that is happening to the people that were abused by him and now live with this humiliation. I think he is scum shit for this and I hope he spends a lot of time growing old in a cell. He needs to be completely isolated.(btw,Ö thatís his daughter walking him to the car..)

Read the news a little more often. I believe he beat the charges via mistrial and the prosecution will not try it again due to the alleged stress on the alleged victim.

a mistrial is NOT "beating" the charges. It is exactly that. He was NOT found innocent. PERIOD.

This story is sickening. What is with the stupid, lying jurors? Or was this jury tampering sponsored by the evil State Troopers. This evil Captain of the Va. State Troopers is an evil man who hurt children and then legally got away with it. That is disgusting. Where is the JUSTICE??

I agree that his punishment should be severe if he is found guilty, but please do not condemn the entire Dept of VA State Police just because this man was employed there. A child molester is a child molester, regardless of his occupation, and most of them are able to hide it well....until they are caught!!!
Don't give me this crap!!!! The HPD lets rich powerful child molesters get away with it---as long as they give a brown bag filled with money to the County. How do you think they are able to build all of these much needed stores and restaurants. Where would we shop or eat????

Most people only care about their own children. All adults should care about the safety of ALL children!!!!

2 cents: I also knew the family and also many of his victims (yes there are more). He is an evil man and no earthly punishment would be good enough any way! I am glad at least someone else knows him for the monster he is...

I am glad to know I am not alone in my personal connection to them.
I am so sad to hear there are in fact more. I think of his family often, and pray they are finding their way through this terror.

Last I heard, nobody is found innocent. They are found "not guilty".

Whereas he will not be tried again, as I said, he beat the charge.

He can be tried again, even years from now. Every day, constant fear that the victim will become strong enough to testify, or that more victims will come forward....

well Va tazdad....thank you for driving your point into the ground.
I hope the people that beat charges as serious as these don't have access to our\your children. Since you have so much knowledge on the matter..do sex offenders that "beat charges" still have to register as a sex offender?

No if they are not found "guilty".

I didn't write the laws or set this man free. I simply stated the facts.

I never said I supported him.
