This is BS I have known this man for 8 years I worked with him and have taken my family on vacation with him his wife and son. If u had any idea of what was going on in this case u would fill sorry for this man and his family. To keep from getting arrested for beating his grandmother the boy told cops a lie and to keep from getting in trouble he keep it is sad that the jury in this case was to blind to see this and has destroyed this mans life.

I was the thirteenth juror on this case. I was dismissed before deliberation. I, too have felt like there was a lot more going on in terms of family dynamics that was skewing the evidence in the boy's favor. I think they were expecting Mr. Hollar to call witnesses, I did not feel he needed to, all the work was done on cross.
The boy's therapist felt there were abuse issues that occurred around age 10 (due to being "over-sexualized for a 10 year old for the boy (The convicted did not have visitation with his son until age 12 when he started getting out of control and violent. This same therapist who testified was under the impression that the convicted father was the one who raised him.
I am calling a foul.
Sir, I wish I would have been allowed to deliberate.
