    the DA should be thrown in jail for pursuing such a weak case

    • Dozens and dozens  more just like this have happened, most with the same result. Imagine the cases when the Guy  melts downs and pleads.

      Yes, thanks for wasting taxpayer $$ and everyone’s time on a case that was clearly weak (and that’s not strong enough of a word) and more about this man’s divorce than anything else. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Why has Mary Kellett not been fired by DA Carletta Bassano for her war on men?  Why are there some 18 women and only 3 men employed by that DA office?  Why is Mary Kellett allowed to continue prosecuting this man or anyone else while currently facing disbarment for committing prosecutorial crimes in a similar case?  How many more innocent lives will she be allowed to destroy before she is removed from her position?

    •  DA Carletta Bassano’s “War on men” is even more egregious than kellet’s/  Both these women need to be removed by voters in the next election cycle.  Until they are gone, there will be no justice for men in Washington or Hancock counties.

    “She told classmates at school who in turn told teachers, who then
    contacted the girl’s parents — not the process one would expect if the
    allegations were made up, she said.”

    Thats actually a great way to do it, because it ensures the original story is even more exaggerated by the time it gets to the cops.

  • How does this guy EVER get his reputation back?

    no excuse for bein a child molester in my opinion all convicted molesters shud be put in general population in a prison and all the inmates shud know why they are there they deserve to be punished for what they did to the child if most people had there way child molesters would get a death sentance hopefully this guy was innocent and just didnt get away with it
