Yeah he was at a "meeting" for being an alcholic, he has a record too. Some where around 3-4 DWI/DUI. Oh and let me see the father also has a history of violence, breaking his wifes leg to the point of being disabled for at least a year and needing surgery. Never once have I ever heard or seen anything like that go on with Danny. Maybe, just maybe the father needs to be investigated. Threating his own wife and kids, yeah he really sounds like a winner!
At least the father is trying to get help. What help is Danny getting for hurting the most innocent-children. You are judging the father, but the father didn't do this the grandfather did it.

This is about Danny, the father and where he was is irrelevant.

I think this comment is WAY OUT OF LINE lady!!! NO children like nor do they deserve to be abused. You're sick in the head and I'd like to smack you down for saying that!

And before you go getting all huffy with me, Danny is my first cousin, his parents helped to raise me when I was a young child. Danny and his siblings were like my brothers and sisters. But let me tell you one thing, if he did do this awful thing, I hope he does go to prison for a very long time.

In saying that, I had no idea about this at all until I stumbled across a blog about New Mexico police corruption and the link to this thread was provided.

I feel sick, have yet to go to bed because I'm trying to figure out whose children were allegedly abused. I keep praying over and over that this is just some horrible mistake. I just read on the other thread here that there is only a 1 in 25 million chance that the DNA on the child's panties is not his. Please if anyone here has copies of news articles copy and paste them here.

I've found several links from different news outlets, so there is no need to post links for me here.

I would like to know if anyone knows how I would go about getting court transcripts of the court session in which the DNA evidence was discussed?

I'm starting to gather more information from a couple of family members, the blogs here at topix, and newspaper articles.

Whether or not the girls were molested or not, they are victims in this mess. If their father is by chance making them lie, they are being used and abused, if they were molested, they will be traumatised for the rest of their lives.

I'm absolutely sick about this case. I hate that so many lives will be destroyed, and so many have already been destroyed. But I'm an American, a child abuse survivor, and until I have all the facts, I will continue to pray for justice. Justice for all concerned.

simply sue...just a question...how close are you to danny and his family now? and u r right...the comment that jean made was out of line because i was sexually abused as a child and noone ever deserves that! And what it does to u as u r growing up...unspeakable! I pray justice is served and soon! I'm just so proud of the girls because when i finally told about my abuse i was 22 yrs old and it was too late for me to do anything. The law states that i had 3 yrs after i turned 18 to file! I think this shld be changed. And i know for a fact that when they do it to one person they do it over and over to other victims. Because I can call like at least 5 of my cousins and they can all tell me how they were abused by the same man who abused me...so saying that im sure more victims will come forward!

And as for me "getting up to speed" I gave it a damn good shot and all I've read is gossip. I seem to recall a person mentioning the cancun story as if it were a big deal that everyone knows. Gladly I don't, but don't try and pretend that you people aren't slanderizing this man
What is the Cancun story? Would someone mind explaining what happened in Cancun? IF, AND ONLY IF, you know what is alledged happened.

I'm reading this entire blog because I am not familiar with the allegations that others have said happened in the past. Those of us here in IL have never heard about any of this.

Sometimes victims are afraid to come forward or the repercussions of coming forward are too frightening to deal with even decades after the abuse.

Does anyone know how to get the court transcripts? Has there been anymore information about the DNA testing? When is the next scheduled court date?

I have a question to ask, was danny running from something in Illinois? Because rumors of his behavior have been around here for years

Do you know that his supporters had a benefit dinner to raise money to fight these charges. Can you imagine how the victims family feels? Knowing that city and county officials were there. I pray more Brave people like your self come forward, and unite with this family to put him where he belongs. He does not have everyone fooled.

I know the victim's family, and right now they are not only up against surratt, the lea county sheriff dept. So i can understand why others may have not wanted to step forward. Good ole boys watching out for each other, just like rose the first adult to know what happened, and did nothing.
