Anyone named Donnell is probably a guilty sob.

Donnell sounds like a regular name for an inmate or a welfare collector.

I didn't suggest that the jury got it wrong. I only say I pray they got it right. If you are Donnell's brother, then I understand that you'd want to passionately defend him if you believe he is innocent. However, I am an outsider looking in. Fate brought me to this case, and all I can say is that a verdict of not guilty is not the same as saying that Donnell Thomas is innocent. I sincerely hope he is innocent. At the same time I also feel compassion for the child at the center of this case, for I feel there is no doubt she has been a victim. This is not to say that Donnell is the person who victimized her, but the fact remains, this child has been damaged, so I pray for her well being. I wish you and your family well.

I agree with "stranger". By law, any defendant is innocent until proven guilty.. In this case, Donnell was NOT proven guilty. This does not mean he did not commit this crime, but that is something we will never know. We can only hope that since he now has a second chance at life, he moves on from this, learns from this and stays away from trouble. I feel for both Donnell and the little girl who accused him of this. Both have been hugely affected by this. My heart sincerely goes out to the both of them.

I was part of the Jury pool for 3 days until I was let go-when I first heard the case I looked at donnell as a animal, after lisening to DA &when she asked me if I could if I could convict on the little girl testmony alone, I thought they had a weak case. After reading this I think the jury got it right.God bless the little girl.

Yo, there are some Real Ignorant statements on here...ESPECIALLY Fred & even more so LI Gal!! Were either of u witnesses to the alleged crime?? If not, enough with the slanderous statements!! I sat there for 2 weeks looking at Donnell & he certainly didn't look guilty...but besides that, Keylonda's testimony, Dejah's testimony & lack of physical evidence...all point to NOT GUILTY!! Now that I've read some statements of things that were omitted in trial, I'm Really Happy that we came to the verdict that we did :) It was one of our thoughts, that Dejah had been previously molested...and it now comes out that she was :( SO SAD, my heart goes out to her!! Also, Keylonda seemed a bit unstable (from prior testimony that was read back to us) & some of the statements above...kinda confirm that she was. Again, I just served on the jury that set Donnell free & I'm happy I was, cause there's a LOT of IGNORANT MOFO's out there, that would've let a hard working man rot in jail, on nothing more than he said she said.
FYI...if found guilty, Donnell would've been out in 6 months anyway...
PS...Best Wishes to Donnell, his family & friends...CONGRATULATIONS!!

Donnell didnt do that to that girl. His girlfriend was lying the whole time. I know that family very will and know he will never in his life do that to that girl. My kids love him. He always play with my daughters and my son too. He's a good father to his kid's. I'm go glad he came home to his family march 2011. Now he is getting his life together. Now he has a son. He is engage to a woman I believe that lives in Manhattan. I saw the woman and she is very nice. I just wish him &#65279;the best in life.
