She was judged... by a jury of her peers. And she was found guilty. God have mercy on her soul, but the honest truth is that she was found guilty, received her sentence, and now must serve her time. I understand that as a parent, she wants to believe her daughter is innocent and wants to set things right for her. Heck, if it were my kid I would want to be able to help my child out and prove their innocence. But I listened to the interview, and it is just her mother bringing up obscure points, some of which are interesting, but most of the interview is just her mother talking relentlessly and aimlessly and contradicting her own points... for a very long time. Like I said, I completely sympathize with her situation. However, there's a point at which you have to face the facts, stop deluding yourself, and realize that maybe what happened is actually better off for your child and they can get much needed help. Just my 2 cents, let the bashing commence.

Not trying to be rude "a mom", but when a jury of your peers convicts of you of a crime and you are sentenced a punishment, it is done in such a way that the jury does in fact believe that you are guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. I realize some people may not believe that she did it, but the jury did. And that is what matters. It's how our whole judicial system is set up, to protect the 1 in 1,000,000 person who is charged with a crime and is innocent. The unfortunate truth is that Kara Garvin most likely isn't that one-in-a-million person who was falsely accused.

Wow Curiosity Killed The Cat I am impressed with your obvious intelligence and keen since of statistics. Where did you find them? one in a million falsely accused. I can name you almost 300 of them myself. Let's see have you bothered to google Clarence Elkins? I would suggest you do. I wonder if he would agree with you? He was convicted of murder and rape. A 6 year old child was his main accuser an eyewitness after all a child does not make mistakes. And he was convicted by a jury of his peers, surely they were right?! Only problem was He didn't do it. I am sure his wife's story was interesting but she probably just kept making "up obscure points, some of which are interesting, but most of the interview is just her talking relentlessly and aimlessly and contradicting her own points... for a very long time. What contradiction did you hear? I am Curious myself. I am willing to bet you were not the one who said they really opened their eyes. By the way it is not a shadow of a doubt but beyond a REASONABLE doubt. When the sheriff's cousin was on the jury and the foreman do you really think she would entertain the idea that her cousin got the wrong person? Or didn't do his job in making sure? Do you really think a sheriff's whose sister works in a Pain Clinic that gets raided and she isn't at work that day can be trusted? I don't.

1. You should check out the definition of hyperbole. 2. You'll notice I was paraphrasing a previous poster's statement when I used "shadow" rather than reasonable. The two terms can be used synonymously with one another in this case, and I used them interchangably for the fact that I could use the other poster's phrase in my reply. 3. Our justice system is no where near perfect, but people who are innocent but found guilty are the minority. If Kara is innocent, I sincerely hope she is redeemed. I was merely saying I don't think the way the interview went was very clear or productive, and that the appeal process doesn't require that type of unnecessary publicity. 4. I'm not on here making personal attacks toward anyone or making any accusations. I'm just merely contributing to a conversation. You'll not find a single on of my comments in which I said she was guilty. I merely pointed out some points that eluded to the fact, but I would never conclusively say I think she did it or not, because I, nor anyone else really know. That's between God and whoever committed the crime, be it her or not. 5. I won't lower myself and post personal attacks on here about anyone, so I'm just going to ignore any of those types of comments. If anyone wants to have a calm, rational, and civil discussion about the topic, I'd love to indulge. However, I can see where the conversation now is currently going, and I don't want a part of the drama and will not contribute to it. Have a wonderful day :)

If the boy had not said it was a girl after he talked to his mom, wonder who they would have suspected? Was thief really the motive? He had more money in pills on him than they could have gotten from his wallet. Why would anyone want that man dead?

Yes OLD SPARKY was ruled inhumane. Thats too bad. The people who really deserve the death penalty...whether it be Kara or others...here is the question. DID THEY SHOW HUMANITY TO THE ONES THEY KILLED, RAPED, MOLESTED? I THINK NOT. Fire up old SPARKY...or several well placed shots..ones to make them suffer a little bit for payback to what they had done to make it to death row.

the fact is that the mother was no where around when Anthony Got on the phone with Dispatch and told them it was a girl and described he only talked to Bob Damron who called the cops and the dispatcher asked to speak to anthony and he said exactly what he saw only minutes before Anthony knows what he saw and he will never forget it. say what u want about bob but there was no time for coaching of any kind Bob saw the kid and called the Cops after the cops were called the family who went up and checked they opened the door Yelled for ed and stuck there head in....that is when the cops came up the hill and ordered everyone on the ground

THE JURY may have believed she was guilty. But mind you these are the same people that keep electing the good for nothing Sheriff to office. There was no way she was ever going to get a fair trial in this area. If you listen to the facts they had they did not prove anything. They did not prove that she was the one that did it beyond a shadow of a doubt! If you know anything about the law or have an education that is easily seen. If anyone should be on trial it should be Denver Triggs. He is the one that was behind all of this. He should have had charges of statutory rape brought up against him years ago. I would love to see a good investigation go on in that whole department! I would say more than Triggs would go down!

Let me tell you something...it doesn't have to be proved. A innocent child isn't going to lie neither would he come up with something so crazy. You guys need to get your heads out of your as$& and realize this really did happen and you can't prove it didn't. I realize she was family/friend but these people she killed was too. Drugs cause people to be who they really are not, choices come with bad outcomes but just because she did drugs and made a bad choice doesn't mean oh she didn't mean to or she didn't do it. Kara got with the wrong man, chose love and drugs over someone elses life and now she pays the price.

Now I suggest you have a long talk with this girl before you defend her..because you really upset the family of the people that passed away.

Get over it. Get her clean, and stop with your lies.

And for karas, you can't always raise a child perfect they make there choices it's her fault not yours don't be hard on yourself. And I know you want to prove her innocence but anthonys pain will always prove her guilty. It's time to move on for your better.

You aren't telling me nothing. Not once did I say she did or didn't do it. So you may want to read again! My head is not in my ass you idiot. A child will lie. A 6 yr old will say whatever is planted in his head. An adult can't remember, what and how things happened under stress let alone a small child. You are going to speak your opinion and I have spoken mine. Something we are all lucky enough to do in this country. I couldn't careless about who it happened to. So how about getting your head out of your ass and chew on that. You live by the sword you die by the sword. So though it is unfortunate what this child may have went through or what he may or may not have seen. It is no more the persons fault that committed the crime than the families fault for living that life style and putting him that position. So while you may sit here and bash a mother for trying to have her daughter back and innocence proven. Come up with some proof that this family it happened to is any more innocent. Drugs rip people apart. Whether you sale them or do them. Drugs have ripped the Mollets apart and they are the ones that put this child in harms way with the lifestyle they chose. Karas family has been ripped apart by drugs because she did use them and her child has had to experience things I hope my children never have to. She has been found guilty of a crime she may or may have not done. The Sheriffs department chose Kara from the start and never went any farther. When you let drugs rule your life it destroys you and everyone around you. Her mother has all the right in the world to do what she is doing and she is doing it out of love. Just as your family would.
