Artimus: Not guilty on all 3 counts!!! Finally the real story has some momentum to be heard. Artimus is not guilty of EVER harming his two daughters (the alleged victims) and the truth of the story could never be printed because the media is not allowed to print who the alleged victims are due to the fact that they were children. But now that the "girls" are grown, they are the first to say that it was their mother's LIES against their father that started this whole mess and that they were never, EVER abused by their father.

I surely would hate to be convicted on what a old boyfriend said, also anyone who knows the laws in Fl. a plea sometimes is a only choice, can you imagine putting your life in strangers hands, guilty untill proven innocent, well I enjoyed the years he played in the area and up north alittle, listen to the kid, how about charging his ex- girlfriend with false acusations resulting in someones life being ruined, maybe if this was taken serious less people would make these charges. We love you Arty

my name is kelly pyle. you people have no idea! my dad ARTIMUS PYLE is NOT a child molester, i hang out with him very offten, if he "molested" me i would not speak to him. he was falsely accussed by my very sick mother. he was on tour with skynyrd when he was accused. you should know the FACTs before you write about things you dont know.
There are alot of people who support your dad. Me and some of my best friends use to go see him all the time, to often a scorned person can make an acusation and ruin someones life. actions speak louder then words, he is a good man from what we have always known, and not just because we love Skynyrd, he is a person, we all put are pants on the same way, you keep defending your dad, you have our prayers

I hate child molesters wrote:
He molested a child end of story. I wonder how many others there are that he molested that he hasn't gotten caught yet.
He is a diddler, skinner, child molester.
No one should even interview him.
People shouldn't buy his music.
Everyone needs to spread the word about this predator.
hey, were you there? didn't think so, are you kidding, a woman says something about a soon to be x and its true, you obviously never have talked to someone who has a mental illness, they lie, let me tell ya a 8 and 4 year old would remember, i know i would. you sound hateful, wouldn't want you on a jury. if there were signs of abuse or if the evidence would of been concrete and the kids not coached, he wouldn't of been offered probation.State saves $ and we know they never loose

why is it so easy to believe the bad in someone, but when it turns out good people think its lies, thank god he finally had his day, now he needs to get the rest taken care of and have this taken off his record, I know I have a crazy ex, from many years ago and he would hulsinate about me being with everyone from the milkman to the pastor, sick, sick people should be disreguarded, maybe when it is all said and done Arty should press charges on her, and sue her for all his losses, including the loss of raising his beeautiful girls. Nice to read the positives, this was a nice one to reply to.

Artimus is a good friend of mine. I've been to his home, he's looked me in the eye and told me the story. I never have and still don't believe he would ever do anything like this. It sucks that you get a prosecuting atty trying to make a name for themselves at the expense of a man's reputation and life. These "Bloodsucking, Weasel Attorneys" have ruined a good man as did the POS girlfriend. Those of us who know Artie have always known he's innocent... tc
