Ask yourself why. Could it possibly be because one of the alleged victim's mother can not likely be considered credible?

well, I would have a real problem believing these accusations against any of them. However, you never really know what someone is hiding. I have known Tommy a long time, and find this hard to believe. Who is the less than credible mother?

Oh Kip, really? And from what/whom, may I ask do you base your opinion? Or is it assumption?

The less than credible mother is someone whom, like many of us, has lived a difficult life but chose to make poor choices over and over again, the least of which includes seeking revenge and telling untruths. She's a "me too" person - when drama surfaces, she seems to just not be be able to stand it unless she's a part of it. She's quick to point a finger, tries to manipulate those who disagree with her and has even been known to suggest threats. Her own mother knows how she "operates" and has had to put her in her place many times. She's someone who was close to Tommy and whom he supported and rescued for many years until he just couldn't, in good conscience, believe all that she said nor support much of what she did any longer. In fact, she can be attributed to being a huge part of the "beginning of the end." Sadly, she's previously accused someone else of this same thing against the same child, but evidently she's reluctant to make that person's identity known. It's more than concerning for those who have known Tommy and, like you, find it difficult to believe ... after 30 something years of working with children he's being accused for the first time of something such as this.

On another thread, several people were posting about someone else, that is what I base this thread and it is not my opinion, just a fact.

You're mistaken and that's a fact. The other thread speaks of a different person.

Sadly this man is still in jail on an 'accusation' with a justice system that is supposed to presume innocence until guilt is PROVEN. From where I sit we have an INJUSTICE system that exponentially ruins lives by slandering people in the paper, locking them up based on hearsay and now he'll never regain his life or status in this if one day they find out this parent/child is lying because we all know that everyone tells the truth all the time. I hope and pray he is innocent and no children were harmed but until there is forensic evidence and he is permitted to face his accuser in court, that person should be presumed innocent.

I agree and it would seem that the "presumption of guilt" towards Tommy and his being back in jail is a direct result of small town politics, a county turned upside down (& understandably so) because of accusations against a separate individual and authorities feeling "they've done their job" to make citizens feel safe by placing "someone" under arrest. To date, Tommy's treatment has been a travesty of justice. In my opinion, the one mother has revenge on her mind and revenge only. She should be prosecuted for knowingly making false allegations.

It is my understanding that it's possibly "a family divided" because of discussions of marital separation a couple of weeks BEFORE Ary's first arrest. I also heard (hearsay) the day Tommy was arrested, he was actually packing his belongings to move out for an undetermined amount of time. While his wife is not known for being vindictive, it's been said that she's feeling scorned, and it's also been said that someone very close to her is known to have been vindictive and mamipulative more than once im the past.

I did too AND he's taught children Karate since the mid 70's and has never been accused of any wrong doing. I don't think the allegations have any merit.
