I must not have been in the same court room with "Knows the Truth" At the prelim in Hobbs Magistrate Court there was never any testimony regarding "oral sex". The only sexual thing really discussed was about him putting the oil on their stomachs and going lower. There are transcripts on the hearing which will be verbatim what was said. It was also testified to that the father had "hid" her clothes in the top of his closet but when the police officer testified, he stated that they went into the fathers bedroom and got the clothes beside the bed. There are alot of stories going around about this whole situation and the only way to know the truth about the court appearances and testimonies is to go in person. However when 2 people were there and have conflicting stories that concerns me. I hope that everyone will attend the trial and pray that we get the TRUTH
And that is all we want is for the truth to come out

I NEVER said anything regarding "oral sex" during testimony!! And the Father did not HIDE anything!! He knew that he had to keep her clothing when Rose did not do anything! When asked why he kept them in a zip locked bag he said "Law and Order"! Where the clothing was in not a factor.

I apologize to Knows the Truth about the oral sex statement . That came from Family of the Victims. But regardless of who or what the fact remains that neither girl testified to any sex , oral or otherwise, only inappropriate touching !! And when I say "only" by no means am I condoning that, as being better or worse than anything that may have been done to these girls. I am the mother of daughters and if this happened to one of my girls I would want the person responsible to hang from the highest tree.(If I didn't get to them first!)

Oh my goodness! This isstill going on? Quite frankly it is getting old what are you all trying to prove? Just because you bash Danny and his family its not going to do any justice on this website! As I said in a previous statement you all egg it on and get worked up over nothing get the balls to tell him to his face or something! This topic is way over rated because you all make it that way! Seriously? Have you all took the time to breath and live life outside other than on this topic day in day out? Obviously not! Really stop typing all this nonsense and really read what you all are putting on here is this something you would condone your children to do, to act in such an embarrassing manner and disrespect everyone in such a way? I mean every one is entitled to their own opinion! Dont bash eachother for it! If I support the belief that Danny didnt do it dont bash me and bring generations in to it! Because regardless nothing came out til the little girls did now everyone and their grandmomma want to come out? The jury wont see any of this nonsense and quite frankly everyone else is sick of it there is more of the people against Danny bashing and talking and trying to make a case on the internet out of it than Team Danny! So for peep sake people get off the computer be there for your families while you can life is to short! God bless you all and may we all get a life!

the DNA expert did not (I repeat) did not say inclusively that the DNA matched Mr. Surratt. As 'Knows the truth1' stated Mr. Surratt sat quietly showing no emotions. The daughters did on occasion shake their heads in disbelief. But the strangest part to me was that both girls testified almost word for word as the other, down to calling Mr. Surratt "their grandmothers husband". Obviously Rose and Danny Surratt were married before either one of these girls were born so I would think that one of them would have called him grandpa but they did not. Also the DNA expert for the Prosecution testified of numerous ways that DNA would be on anyone or their clothing.
I can't believe you would think they should call him Grandpa? He is not there Grandfather. They have a Two Grandfather that would never do what DANNY did to them. Now you honestly don't know what the heck you are talking about. The girls shock there heads because this so called man that they loved and trusted did these bad things to them. OBVIOUSLY YOU DON'T KNOW THIS GIRLS OR THIS FAMILY VERY WELL. BECAUSE THE OLDEST WAS ALREADY BORN WHEN MR. SURRATT CAME INTO HER LIFE. ROSE MADE HER CALL HIM GRANDPA.

It was never stated that the DNA was found on her panties or in the crotch of her panties only on her clothing.And "Laundry" did come up that day by the DNA expert who stated that DNA transfers easily. If you do someones laundry "YOUR" DNA will be on their clothing.
Are you sure you were in Court.. Because it was stated it was in the inside of her panties. Oh by the way so everyone is on the same page Danny does not do laundry he can't even take the trash out at my moms house. She would wait on him hand and foot.

I guess you were again not in the courtroom when my 9yr. daughter answered Danny's lawyer about what Danny did after the act? I will repeat it for you... HE WASHED HIS MOUTH OUT. Did you not hear the same thing. Because from the feel of the court room everyone else did.

. You were not in the court room, you were outside in a witness room. That question was not asked. So just keep twisting the truth. The hole you are digging gets deeper with your deception.

LOL now I did not say I was in the courtroom. If you have read my comments I already said that Gary Cotton my mother's second husband got sick over this question and answer. I believe him because he is not a man of deception like you are. Believing a man who has a past with lots of deception, and who preys on other people and hurts there family. Danny had no emotions because he has had lots of practices.

I believe tanya is just repeating what several other people know . I brought it up on here to show that danny has some kind of problem. the day I saw it was after a hunting trip with danny. A big kiss on the lips and a pat on the ass. if that was some kind of harrasment she should have reported it , but it did not look like it. I am sure her husband would have been pissed if he saw what I saw .
