What happened to being innocent until proven guilty? I've known Graham since he was born and know that he isn't capable of this type of crime. I live in Colorado and it's interesting to me that this is happening in Idaho at a time when a man in Colorado is being released from prison for a murder crime that he never committed. Let's make sure we have ALL the facts and that they are correct before jumping at something just so we have a story for the news/paper.

I've always admired the fact that even while he was in a marriage with a woman who herself admits that she has been diagnosed as being bi-polar and borderline personality disorder, he would walk out when she became physically out of control. Also, Graham loves kids and they always get along great with him.

Why would he go out of his way to borrow a truck and help this woman get a washer and dryer to her house and then do something like he's being accused of???

Has anyone considered that this woman may be lying??? I'm not living in Idaho, have just seen the news reports on the web. And I've noticed that her story keeps changing! The latest I've read is that she "recognized him by the smell of his cologne". This means she didn't see his face. I'm sure more than one man wears that cologne!

When is a reporter going to talk to Graham or his family/friends and get his side of the story? It is reported that he has no sex crimes against him, or any crime for that matter. Everyone who knows Graham (from children to elderly people) when they hear this story say that this is all impossible - that this is not Graham.

How about reporters talk to other men she's spent time with and find out more about her??? Neighbors have reported that she often brings men home and they hear yelling and fighting going on in the house.

The paper also reported this morning that he was dating this woman for 3 months. There are sure a lot of loop holes in this woman's story, like having dated him for three months....when he was out of town a lot working his job, and was with family in Colorado in late November.

This story is definitely not over. And we just ask that someone be willing to hear Graham's side. I can't even imagine what he's going through right now. Graham has a good job and works hard, is incredibly kind and sweet to his sisters and mother. Pictures on the news make him look hard, but he's got a heart of gold. And anyone who knows him will attest to that.

WOW..... I am the fiance (soon to be married to on this Valentine's Day) of his woman's ex-boyfriend who is the father of her three children!!!!! GUESS WHAT? My fiance spent the last several months in jail and was recently released because she accused him of beating her and attempting to strangle her, which is untrue!!!
I just heard about this tonight! My future mother-in-law saw this report on the news a few weeks ago and thought it looked like her house, but just shrugged it off as coincidence. Tonight she mentioned it to me and I did some sleuthing on the internet and found the story and low and behold it is my fiance's ex-girlfriend!
Because of the legalities involved in this, I do not want to give any more details, but would like to say that I am going to look into this tomorrow morning.
As soon as I read this story, I KNEW she was lying about this. We have been through HELL with this woman.
If you want, you can contact me for further info.

I am the Victims sister. I have known your boyfriend/husband for several years and he is not even worth getting into with you..Since you commented on my sister I will just let you and the readers know that he fathered 3 children, left her after each one was born and didnt take care of the kids financially. When I called one time (thought the were broke up)I talked to him about there relationship..he said to me "she is really hard to live with, she gets in my face and I cant help but hi her"...You dont even know what you are talking about!! He was absive, he says it was self defence! that is funny since she is 5 feet and 105 lbs...Joe did do this to her. She came to my house wit her kids and my husband and I saw where he was holding her neck and bumps in her hair...We took her to the cops and they took pics and he was charged...This attack from home invation that happened in January was real. you think she has put you though hell? You dont even know what she has been through and it is sad that you as a woman wouldnt have any sympathy for her or her children!! By the way to the girl that says she knows Graham? well the DNA came back! its a positive match. Plus he told everything to the wrong guy in jail and they guy reported it...After that he admited to everything...There is so so so much you dont know that happened. It has been a real difficult time.
