So let me get this right...her DAUGHTER still says she was molested by her. The other girls STILL say they were molested by her. She was NOT convicted and now she thinks she'll get 25 million? You've got to be kidding me!!! We're not talking about a wrongful conviction here, we're talking about her complaining about the prosecution being MEAN to a woman who's DAUGHTER say's she was molested by her. She should get NOTHING. NOTHING!!! What if she DID molest the girls, OJ got off too (the first time) so don't make it seem like it's not possible, AND gets money. The lawsuit won't fly but I'm amazed that people support this woman.

We here in Dalton, Ringold KNOW 98% on the situation, how things where twisted and turned around and taken out of context and used against Tonya, having worked with children (none of these girls)I KNOW THEY CAN EASILY be unconsciously swayed to BELIEVE what they are being ...asked, grilled, probed,interrogated about. Ms Lamb even basically threathened some of the other girls family with CPS being called on them, The jury acquited her on all 22 counts which is the MAJORITY consense here . CONGRATULATIONS TONYA go get em girl!

It doesn't matter because she won't get a dime. Does she think she's the only person in the U.S. to get prosecuted? SHE WASN'T EVEN CONVICTED! The poor bastard who spent 35 years in prison isn't even getting 25 million but this super nice woman who was accused (that's it!) of molestation thinks she'll get money. WHAT A JOKE!

I hope she gets every dime of it.What those vengeful women put this poor woman through was beneath contempt.Her accusers should be jailed for child abuse having their innocent little children lie on the stand.Her accusers should have their children taken away for the lack of morals they have shown towards their children.I can't imagine a parent who would teach their child to lie.

Hold on! "Dumb, witch-hunting Christian fundamentalists"???. How did this association take place? Obviously you are spewing bitterness without knowing the facts. I know a lot of "Christian fundamentalists" who supported her. Some "Christian fundamentalists" even testified on her behalf. None of the ones I know personally would be classified as "dumb" either. All are professionals and well educated Please refrain from stereotyping Christians in such an ignorant and uneducated manner. This is just another lame attempt to set Christianity in a negative light. Whether you agree with the decision or not is completely your opinion but there is no need to blame Christianity for the events that took place. How do you know that all of the accusers are true Christians? My advise to you is to research and verify before you speak. Thank you.

I hope she gets every dime of the money.They have ruined an innocent womans life over some vindictive parents creating some trumped up charges and putting words into the childrens mouths.The testimony of the children had been clouded by suggestive questions.

There wss another case just about like this one in Chickamauga, Georgia. Matter of fact it happened on my street. This 14 year old boy who is nothing but a trouble maker and a thieve. He will steal anything. He told his sister and mother he had sex with one of the women on the street. The lady was married and had three little kids. She didn't have a very good lawyer like Tonya Craft had. She lost her kids, her home and everything. The Walker county court system took the word of a 14 year old punk. I hope he burns in hell.

I hope she gets every penny! These counties are corrupt and dirty.These detectives,lawyers,D.A's,DFACS and police in these 4 counties are liars and should lose their jobs&children,just like Tonya did! I have seen these people in these counties being corrupt and doing favor for favor with each other.I'm glad that these counties are finally being investigated after years of them committing crimes themselves and it getting covered up for them.I guess they tried to pull this on a very smart woman that is willing to stand up for herself and others that have been wrongfully accused of such crimes.Like I said,Ive seen the favor for favor with D.A's,Lawyers and judges myself.When we want to have a favor done,to get a charge dropped or dismissed,we can...BUT only if you know someone"that has a connection with another corrupt person" that can have the favor done.I hope this Judge that is in trouble in Catoosa county opens his can of worms "even his own dirty deeds" and spills them out on EVERYONE that has EVER been involved in Tonya's as well as other peoples cases that were wrongfully accused.The parents of these little girls shouldn't have their children if they are teaching them to lie.Where are these young girls going to learn morals from? Surely not their parents.Just think of all the people that has went to jail because they couldn't afford a lawyer to help them when they are wrongfully accused of a crime.If it were you that one of your daughters friends mother/friend of your own,has a fallen out with you and accused you of a crime like this,,Do you think you could possibly know what this woman has went through? The law suite should have been for 125 million not just 23 million.This woman has lost her home,job,children and friends because this justice department is so corrupt&I'm glad she was smart enough to not hire one of these Lawyers in these corrupt counties.GO TONYA GO!!!!!! WE SUPPORT YOU 100%

I think that alot of the mothers were jealous of Tonya. After all she is attractive. They were probably scared that their husbands would see what a real woman should look like instead of the over weight, ugly, and hateful things they are.
