How in the world can a jury not believe in a person being raped. Of course they took in consideration how scared she was. It's never an easy thing to get up in front a lot of people and tell what happened.Now wonder why more women don't report rapes.

I hope he files a suit for his violation of rights such as habeas corpus.
Some kids lie about bieng abused others don't since he was aqitted I'm assuming the girl wasn't 100% right.
The police through a PROPPER INVESTIGATION should have come to that conclusion before wasting te courts time.
Seems like now a days your guilty until you prove your innocence.
GET AN OUT OF COUNTY ATTORNEY AND SUE THE PROSECUTOR AND OR POLICE AND WHILE YOUR AT IT HIT THE GIRLS FAMILY THAT DID THIS TO YOU for a CIVIL SUIT FOR DAMAGES.
Even though she is under age she will one day want a house and nice job file a law suit before you run out of time concerning statute of limitations.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU sir

since a jury aquitted wow
he has an easy case.
When truely raped there is evidence
there was not enough to convict they made the right decision
What if you were falsly accused of rape?
OUr SO CALLED JUDICIAL SYSTEM IS A JOKE, HOWEVER IT'S NOT ALL BROKE SO NOW THIS MAN I HOPE WILL USE THAT TO HIS ADVANTAGE,
MAKE AN EXAMPLE out of people like her

sorry to dissappoint you don't know either of them just familar with law and due process to a point and for once I'm proud to say as I myself am a victim of the judicial system glad that it worked in this case.
As for a 12 old funny how in any other court case children are not allowed to testify wonder why in this case.
See when your raped the evidence such as Doctors nourses and police present that so the alleged victim isn't retramatized.
Are you sure blonde you have no underlying interest in this case?
It's sad all together but just cause a little 12 year old said the sky was green doesn't change the fact the sky remains blue
now put that in your pipe and smoke it blondie

No revenge just preventing another poor soul from having to suffer as this man did for 2 years. You think that should go unpunished because it was a child screw you!
Unless she was mentally retared I don't excuse a childs actions just because they are just thata child. They too know how to manipulate.
Because they are not allowed to be spanked tell me what is an appropriate punishment for a girl who lies about bieng raped so for her own intents and purposes since she is a child???

Justice was served don't compare my case with the little liars.
I was never convicted. Just falsly accused.
If rape acutually happened and it was proven the man would have been punished I will not dignify anymore of these types of comments with responses.
GET OVER IT THE TRUTH CAME OUT IN THIS CASE THE MAN IS INNOCENT, was falsly ACCUSED AND APPARENTLY ARRESTED then AQUITTED, END OF STORY.

JUDGE KElley had a PFA against him does that mean he was guilty of what he was accused or the little lady (if that's what you want' to call her) LIED.

Also I'd like to know where were the parents of this 12year old?
Sounds like they need to be investigated for neglect letting there child allegedly by her own accusations unattended and able to manufacter such alligations???

I agree but I have to point out, spanking is and remains legal.

That's a matter of opinion one cop will say there is no crime against spanking and others will nail you for assult. It's always at the officers discretion. Parents should be allowed to spank children not beat them but again it's a matter of opinion. Personally I'd rather spank my child and hope they learn from it than do nothing and have the police beat them like they did that lady to get them to listen.
Such a shame too. Parents can't beat there children into submission but the police can beat who ever they want to allegedly force co-opperation

I must say I F'N agree I have been spanked nothing harshly but the belt in my day scared me never was hit hard it was just the point I guess it just humiliated me was paddled in school too I was just a young male that stood by his ground of right 100 paragraphs of the same thing or get the paddle well the paddle only hert for like 3 minutes now you even touch a child its against the law that is why we have disrespectable children all over and I must say ive found a lot of children who still have respect for others I guess that is the way they were brought up
