How could Stacy Edwards not think that Maxine Litton was not lying when Maxine admitted lying to her. Maxine has been a bar fly most of her life and Oroville trash. She should have to answer for her actions let her stay in jail for 8 months. Dennis Hopper lost everything his jobs, reputation and God knows what else. I find it amazing that the news media blast his picture all over the television and newspapers but then put the dimissal information on the third page that is justice. Stacy Edwards did a fantastic job and so did Grady Davis and I thank the both of them.

This is horrible this should be on the News that he was wrongly accused. So he might have a chance of rebuilding his life. I have known him for years and yes Dennis has his wild side but Rape NO WAY. I hope the woman that accused him gets into trouble, She has ruined his life and should get in trouble.

There should be justice for Dennis Hopper. Why Ramsey the big guy wouldn't file charge against Maxine Litton when he sure didn't have a problem filing charges against Dennis. When this first went to court even the judge said this is a very strange case and yet Ramsey if he would of read the information should of never filed the charges. The discovery showed she gave three different stories to three different police officers. I'm wondering how false claims of rape are filed each year. They waste the counties time and money and ruin peoples lives. When is there going to be justice for the person that is accused. Even tho the DNA cleared him there will be many that stilll believe he did it. Having your picture plastered all over the TV and newspapers the ER didn't plaster it when they found him innocent. What kind of screwed up newspaper is the ER. I know certain news sell newspapers but people want to believe in the justice system and hear about the good news. Come on ER plaster the good news.

This is what happens when we empower women. It gives them a sense of entitlement. A claim of rape and even sexual harassment is now a weapon. It can destroy a person while having no merit whatsoever. Society has become so sensitive towards the plight of "minorities" that we so often forget INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Unfortunately, nobody cares that the accused also has rights. Most just want to assume if someone says it happened, then it happened. Let's keep empowering women and every ethnic class other than caucasion and eventually we'll have complete anarchy!

Rippin, when it comes to any sex crime, or alleged crime agains females of an age, you already lost before going into the courtroom or facing a jury. Plus the cops along with the witnesses or the person who brought charges will lie together against you to make sure. This happened to me for talking online to a girl. Her mom and cops woule constantly lie ane my lawyer woule never call them on it in that court so ai had to plea to something even though the daughter I was talking to wqs messaging and talking go me first like 90% of the time.

Let's face it, Mike Ramsey has become a total bumbler, as this case proves. He was going to try an innocent man, as the DNA evidence proved. But now he's claiming they just don't have enough evidence. If you screw up, you screw up, just admit it. Ramsey has had this job for too long, he's way-over-the-hill, everybody knows it.

I praise God for the people who stood behind me. As for the justice system I never in my life would of looked at them like I do now. The DA did her job and helped my lawyer Grady Davis to find the truth. It took 9 months but those 9 months were probably the best nine months I had in years. I learned from Jessie Watson exatly what humbling your self is and never in my life have I read the bible and now I can talk the bible with just about anybody. It is going to be very hard to reajust but I have been through worse. God Bless You

Dennis,
That was good of you to clear the air. As you can see everybody assumes a frame up by the DA. The DDA's job is to prosecute cases, yes. They also follow law and are not interested in putting innocent people in jail, despite what a few people think. Anybody have any idea how many cases come across the DDA's desk everyday? Cases that have to be read through researched and investigated further. Not an easy job by any stretch of the imagination.
Add to all that, victim's and suspects sometimes lie or sometimes perceive the wrong things or are emotionality unstable or are on drugs/alcohol or have an ax to grind. It can be difficult to sort out the truth. If your a cop at the beginning of all this, when the emotions are flying and people are either lying or mistaken it can be really difficult to sort out. Especially rape cases, especially when alcohol or drugs are involved or the victim or suspect are of questionable character. There is still a duty to investigate no matter what the case. There is no perfect solution for investigating these cases, try balancing the fate of the victim and alleged suspect on a tightrope while trying to sort out fact from fiction given all the above variables.

Because of the VAWA 'Violence Against Womens Act', Thank you joe dickhead biden, there is no means of retribution for men falsly accused of anything against a woman.
Because of this? Perjury is no longer a crime for women.
The famikly law courts use it all the time against men who want to be responsible fathers to their children!
