This has just recently happened to a friend of mine. His 13 yr old stepdaughter, after extensive questioning about “stomach cramps”, was forced to implicate him as forcing her to give oral sex. It never happened, yet his life is being ruined because even though the girl has recanted he story, and none of her several versions match, the prosecutors of California are going forward full tilt. With a 1 million dollar bail, he has been in jail for 3 months, losing his job, his home, and his truck, and all his public lawyer wants to do is talk “deal”.
How is this justice?
