I wish Alden could know right now how much we support him and wish he was back at home with his family. I just strongly think that the story seems a bit far fetched and I hope the truth comes out in the end for everyones sake.
And remember only GOD can judge.

This is outrageous! I have never heard such lies. Alden Buchholz is one of the kindest young men I know. He is a true gentleman, anyone who knows him will support that truth. He is a thoughtful, considerate person who has always been devoted to his family and friends. In his community he is well liked and popular. It is not helpful to try him in the news before all the facts are even known. Please give him the same consideration you would want and deserve ...innocent until proven guilty.

This is definitely not true, I have known alden since I was little and there is no way he would ever even think to do something like this. He is a good person.

WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE? This whole incident appears to be going off of hear-say from a young, troubled girl. There needs to be some substantail evidence and real facts here before the system even attempts to take Alden down. I have known Alden for over 10 years and consider him to be one of my best male friends. He would never hurt any female. He was raised in a strong, religious family and not only has a kind spirit but a loving heart. He is caring, has a great sense of humor and is a gentle person. He's not an angel (who is?), but he is no kidnapper, rapist, sodomist or whatever else the news is saying about him. It's not true. Nothing like this has EVER happened in his life and it is all so out of character for Alden Buchholz. I hope and pray that the truth will set him free.

We should have a chance to know of this girl’s character? From all the earlier post's it sounds like Alden is a great person and this accusation is largely out of Character. I know by law the victim has rights that protect her identity but information on her character could still be given with out her identity being revealed... It should only help her, unless she has a scandalous background and learning more of her character would show her true destructive life pattern.

Alden as sweet as he was, was also a known drug user and wasn't the same person everyone knew in highschool! Its hard for me to believe he was capable of this but also drugs change people and they DID CHANGE HIM and I know that for a fact! I hope justice is made on this case and if he did do it then he pays the price and if not that girl better pay the price! Lying and making up a story like this is insane and would really show the person this girl really is, to ruin somebody's life and image people portray of him is just plain out ugly and crazy!
I guess they both are the ones that truley know what happened that day and hopefully the truth comes out.
I wish people would stop being ignorant to the fact that it happens daily and that someone we loved and respected is capable of doing these things!

Obviously you are not very close to Alden; if so you would have noticed that he struggled with his father’s sudden death three years ago and for the last two years has come a long way and over come a great deal. You would have also realized that his family means everything to him, that he spends most of his time with his widowed mother and siblings. Maybe you would have known how he has worked hard to get a good and goes to church every Sunday for the past few years.
Alden has lost everything he is hundreds of miles away from his family, lost his job because he has been in prison for the last few months and has been presumed guilty in the media before any facts have been presented to prove other wise. Did you know how his mother who works like a dog everyday to support his four small brothers will probably have to sell her house to hire a lawyer? Actually I am not sure if you realize the magnitude of the charges against Alden or how this will destroy his life weather proven guilty or innocent. If proven innocent people will always talk about him, judge him and fear him. If found guilty he could be in jail for 60+ years with no chance of parole, do you know what happens to people in jail who have sexual abuse charges against them? They get beat up and harassed by hardened criminals for years. No, I think you are the one who is ignorant and not seeing the cold nightmare that has become Alden's life.

<quoted text>
I've known Alden and his family since my boys played little league together - what? fourth grade? My son and Alden were baptised together! He came on Christmases to share what he had received - whenever he saw me in town, he would make a point of coming over and saying a big hello to his buddy's mom. This is the young man I know and love. He is always "out there" without anything to hide - ha! He couldn't if he wanted too - he'd end up telling on himself first anyway - if for no other reason, than just for the opportunity to tell a great story! Alden has the greatest sense of humor of anyone I've ever met - and I just can't imagine him intentionally causing anyone this kind of trouble. Alden also has a high respect for women, including his sisters, and above all, his widowed mother. I remember him coming over to the house and keeping me rolling in laughter as he would share day care stories with me. This is a young man I've know closely for many, many years and I JUST DON'T BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE OF HIM. I think this girl was playing where she should not have been - I understand there are photos to prove just this - and rather than confess the truth of the deal, she has become a drama queen and is calling someone I love a rapist. I also believe that because her lie has snowballed, that it will be next to impossible for her to just admit the truth, which is what we can all pray for. It hurts more than I can put into words to think of Alden sitting in a cell, alone, in another state facing all of this B.S. My heart and prayers go out to his family - especially Heather. Please know that my entire family stand by Alden and all of you and that we hold you in our prayers. Please feel free to contact me and let me know how we can help.

The reality is, what Alden was as a boy has nothing to do with what he may, or may not, be now. It is unfortunate that his mother is widowed, but has little bearing on this case. I hardly think the bail would be a million dollars if there wasn't some compelling evidence put before the judge, not just a "heresay" accusation. Regardless of whether it was rape, or statutory rape, shame on him. Whoever thinks he's living his religion by drinking and at the very least using young girls is sadly out of touch with what he's become.

Dear Reality,

I wish you were paying attention and realized that you were wrong! Wow that sucks, because Alden was innosent and you were one of the mob willing to stone him. Gosh I guess you didn't know him very well. By the way the reason people kept saying his mom is widowed and all the nice things about his family is because they cared about them and knew that is family had already gone thru hell. But none of that mattered to you did it...

Pray for Your Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ:
The Apostle Paul gives us two prayer examples of what to pray for regarding the Body of Christ in Ephesians 1:15-23 and 3:14-21. Pray these prayers for your Church Leaders, your Brothers and Sisters in Christ, and for yourself.


God promised Abraham He will bless those who blessed him and curse those who curse him. This promise was not only for Abraham, but for all of his covenant descendants - the Jewish people. Pray that our leaders will make the correct decisions to make our country a blessing to Israel. Also, Christians need to pray that the nation of Israel will recognize the Lord Jesus Christ as their Messiah and Savior, that they will have peace and success, and that they will possesses the land that God has promised them.(Genesis 12:2-3, 15:18-21, 17:8, 17:21, 22:15-18, Deuteronomy 30:2-5)

Prayer for families is the very foundation that keeps a family unit together. Have you heard the phrase "A family that prays together stays together"? The concept is true - a family that has their focus on praying to the Lord Jesus Christ has a foundation that may be shaken at times, but it will withstand all that comes against them.
