I feel that it is not fair that these boys are going threw this especially my brother fidel melo because he has no family down there with him. I dont want anything to happen to him because he is not a bad person and he is not no rapist. please support my brother because he has never been accused of this kind of thing ever in his life. he went to get a better life away from the bronx and he goes over there so that a girl can accuse him of rape. i find that so injustice. if the girl already had a boyfriend why was she caught smoking weed with my brother and queens. it makes no sense. shes just making this cover story up so everybody could ignore the fact that she was smoking with them and she dont want her parents to find out.

Well Ive known fidel since middle School. He has been friends with my brother since 4th grade.I dont think fidel raped this young girl. Why was she at the party in the first place? Fidel is very lovable and sweet. This girl is out of her mind to say that fidel had something to do with it. He went out there to better his future.Did anybody hear his side of the story? I think that she knew that she was going to get into trouble with her parents and thats why she said what she said. Where was her boyfriend at? Where were her parents at? Fidel i love you and you will be home soon. keep ya head up!

I know Fidel for many years. He's been friends with my son Angel since the 4th grade and they love each other as if they are brothers.In my heart fidel is like a son to me and i know with all my heart that he did not rape this girl. Fidel is a beautiful and respectful young man that left the bronx so that he can stay out of trouble, so why would he go out there and do something like that to this girl?

I am shocked at such an injustice in today's judicial system, Fidel Melo didnt have any representation or his time to state on record what had occured. Also wake up you prejudice f*#%$, common story , plot, WHITE!!! that's all I have to say SMH....
