I agree. No one deserves rape. And no one deserves to be fasley accused of rape, either. What a disservice this case was for the true rape victims.

Wow. No one deserves to be presumed gulity before we have all the facts. We need to think before we crucify an innocent person.

The charges were dropped at 2:30pm today even before the 3pm hearing. The alleged "victim" recanted her story and admitted she filed false charges. Please check with Douglas County court to see for yourselves the public record.

This young man was put through the ringer-but this girl must have alot of problems to say something so horrific. They both, the young man and girl need our prayers-not our judgments.
