The Judge should be tried as an accomplice to murder. Anyone who buys his book should also.

I had Judge Keys as my lawyer. I found out about his run as a Judge only after I hired him. I thought that he was a horrible lawyer so I can only think what he was as a Judge. i think We the people shouldn't buy his book. Maybe someone could start selling bracelets in memory of Kelse that stands for two things. One your not forgotten and secondly we will not buy this book so Keys can profit from it.

Policeman is accused of breaking daughters legs.
“He was being accused by social services. The police were investigating him,” he told The News.

“His own attorney, instead of giving him hope — and this part really slays me — painted such a black picture for him. He said,‘You’re going to prison. You know what they do to policemen in prison. You're going to lose your wife. You're going to lose your baby.’”

Also that day, a doctor finally realized that the broken bones in Alyssa’s legs — injuries her parents had been accused of inflicting — were actually caused by a rare genetic disorder, spinal muscular atrophy.

Her parents were dead, but innocent.

Since then, the Cuins have been tangled in lawsuits — with social services, hospitals and doctors — basically anyone who had a hand in their case except for the police department.

Every single one was thrown out — largely, Paul says, because of governmental immunity.

“Here in Colorado, you can’t sue the government unless they give you permission.”

Paul and Jackie were instructed to not reveal details of their case while they were pursuing the lawsuits, but now they can speak freely.

Paul wants the law granting governmental entities — such as social services — reformed, so legitimate claims are not ignored.

He says social services should have looked harder for an explanation for Alyssa's injuries, instead of wrongly accusing Dave and Tiffany of child abuse.

“We knew, from the first day, that they were innocent, that there was no way that they could have abused that child in any way,” he said.“That's the point we kept trying to get across. You have got to be looking for something else. It’s not child abuse.”

Paul also hopes that opening up about his family’s story can help in another way — by raising awareness about spinal muscular dystrophy, the rare disease that caused Alyssa's injuries and developmental problems.

“Very little is known about it, even in the medical field,” he said, explaining how he and Jackie, after caring for Alyssa in the months after her Dave and Tiffany's deaths, even had to show the nurses how to handle Alyssa.

“My wife and I literally had to teach the nurses how take care of her, because they were so unaware of the disease,” Paul said.

He says nurses didn’t immediately know to suction Alyssa’s mucous, because she couldn’t clear her own throat or nose, or to take extra care when holding her because she couldn’t support her own head.

Spinal muscular atrophy is often deadly in young children, as it was for Alyssa, who died months after her diagnosis.

If you actually read the court documents and not the bull crap on JO's websites you would know the answer to the stupid questions you have been asking over and over for the past 4 years.

um, excuse me? but she is not sue, there are alot of lies being told about Kelsey and her loved ones, this being one of them,

none of the so called child abuse experts knew who was abusing Kelsey and they had free access to her,

mike porter's own daughter told a school counselor that she 'walked in on her father spanking kelsey til she puked and another time she walked in the backyard and he was banging her head against a brick wall, this was all in the last week she died, she went on to say that her 'father was real nice to kelsey in front of others but was real mean when no one was around, as it was she walked in on him when raye dawn was not around or not home and only her father was babysitting the kids,

this kind of faultfinding has taken the heat off of the real killers,
think about how kelsey would feel if she found out the hateful mob that has been created against her survivors, she loved them very much,

THOSE are lies.

In January 2005 the DHS investigation found that Raye Dawn was the abuser of Kelsey.

No, Mike Porter's daughter NEVER told any school counselor that she saw her Dad hit Kelsey.

If you have proof of any of this, which you don't because it's not true, why don't you post that instead of your rants and paid for hire newspaper articles?

Seriously? the only "pee aich dee" you have is dripping from your ten babies' dialpers.

Keep jabbering edjumicated one. I didn't know a Ph.d could be achieved from Gerbers labels.

Stop embarrassing yourself, and making us cringe with your pretentious insights. I'm embarrassed for you.

Haven't you heard, "Never bring a knife to a gunfight?" Well honey you are hardly armed with a popsicle sick.

Which means. Y'alls gonna jabber back louder....jes y'all watchun see...

I have noticed that high school drop outs like you get pretty pissy about titles. In this case the name (and the degree) was a flucking JOKE. One that you might have gotten if you had managed to finish high school.

BTW Kelsey Briggs is STILL dead and her killers are BOTH stilled locked up which is about all the justice poor Kelsey will ever have.

I see Sue is lurking and voting, and the nutjob pedophile she cohorts with.
Mike Porter's daughter telling a school counselor that she walked in to find Mike spanking Kelsey until she puked has never been substantiated.
For one, IF she told her counselor that then she had the legal obligation to report it to the police.
Don't you that would have been included in the lawsuit filed by the Briggs for the negligence in Kelsey's case if it had been?
Don't you think the counselor would have been called to testify at Raye Dawns' trial?
If the counselor was told that and didn't notify the police, but did repeat it to whoever-her butt would have been on the line, I promise you that. Especially in a child abuse case resulting in death.
Why wasn't Porter's daughter called to testify?
Can you provide ANY of the answers and quote legal documents and not the paid for hire news source?
No, you can't.

Is this the freedom our forefathers and children die for? it is more like a '''Free For All''' with mobs obstructing justice, Media run courts,,,,''''''Prison walls do not form a barrier separating the inmate from the protections of the Constitution.” So wrote Justice Sandra Day O'Connor in the 1987 decision Turner v.... out the band program violated prisoners' free-expression rights.... Whether accommodating prisoners' constitutional rights will infringe ...+
As Justice Thurgood Marshall eloquently expressed it in his concurrence in Procunier v. Martinez (1974):“When the prison gates slam behind an inmate, he does not lose his human quality; his mind does not become closed to ideas; his intellect does not cease to feed on a free and open interchange of opinions; his yearning for self-respect does not end; nor is his quest for self-realization concluded. If anything, the needs for identity and self-respect are more compelling in the dehumanizing prison environment.”

There are 2 sides to this story--the truth, and the one that the loser wannabe writer is trying to create to make a name for herself.
