This is such cover-up. The old man confessed, the Mayor (step-son), Police Chief and the mother heard him. What more does the DA need to prove their case. But look who the players are. Who cares about her past. We all have a little something in our closets. She didn't ask for this and the little boy darn sure didn't. I would hope the mom wouldnt let her son go back with his dad. Where is he? Didn't he care where his son was? Why have we heard nothing about him? What does he have to hide??? Maybe he is right there with the others. Mis trial my butt. The mayor & police chief let these people down, now the DA's office is working for the Defense. She and her son NEVER had a chance. I agree she should file a law suit. Who the heck wouldn't.

Wonder if the jurors came from Grand Isle? These people are nuts. Surprised this has gone as far as it has. Bet they never thought the mother would go this far. People should stop and think, if it weren't true the DA would have never prosecuted the case. I applaude this lady and her son. That island is creepy and mafia like. And look at the leader. Rumor is the old man was drunk awhile back and the best friend of 40 yrs let him go. Oh yeah, the Sheriff. Shouldn't his bond have been revoked??? DA, are you paying attention??? Or is your pockets being stuffed.

Hey folks...WELL, since all this with Penn State. Maybe people will be more inclined at round 3 to believe that there are so old perverts out there. Maybe this kid will finally get the justice he deserves and send OLD CAPT JAY up the river. Everytime I hear on EVERY sports show about the latest, it reminds me of what we have heard for awhile now, it our own community.
