Keep on dreaming. I will bet you the $16.4 trillion in the national debt that the case is still marked "cleared by arrest" in the official records. It will always remain marked as "cleared by arrest".

This kid deserves $100,000 for each year he spent in prison.$1.2 million should cover it. And I bet he gets it.

This is Virginia, don't expect cops, prosecutors, and judges to care one bit about innocent people.

If you read this research article by the CATO Institute it appears your state of Alabama consistently has a higher rate of police misconduct than Virginia. You may want to do some factual research before casting allegations.

Do not forget to subtract the cost of housing him each year from the $100,000. He is no longer kid.

that's very poor logic, one case in any state is too many.

against his will? Does that mean abduction victims should have to pay rent to their kidnappers?

Agreed, one teacher or minister who molest kids is also one too many.One employee who steals from his company is one too many, one person who leaves work early and does not adjust his billable hours is one too many. I could go on, but you get the drift. If we lived in a perfect world with unicorns, rainbows and blue skies no person of any occupation would be involved in any misconduct. Sadly employees from any occupation are all recruited from the same location...the human race

Actually you just disagreed with the entire premise and made the assumption of guilt, not much different than the Spanish inquisition. If you look at my daughters wrong, I am justified in killing you, right? You are, after all, human, right? You want to make generalizations, they go both ways. You are a criminal if you've ever thought less than otherwise. Philosophically, you are as anti-American as they come.
