    Why is no one saying that there is a possibility that this is a woman scorned? Is it possible that he told this woman that he is now married and was establishing a boundary which she can not accept???

    It is not a woman scorned. There is video to prove it.

    Sounds like the story is a little bit made up. I guess we'll see how many witnesses testify and what kind of footage the states attorney has. Just goes to show don't jam yourself up over woman. Not worth it at all. Hopefully there are no kids invovled, that makes it worse.

    That wasn't very convincing?? Are you suggesting that you know more about the details of this case than the head DA for Kenosha County?? The evidence spoke for itself....hence CASE DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE!!!! It's clear to me that some people are gullible enough to acutally believe the media. That's truly sad.

  17. A case being being dismissed does not prove innocence. I'm not saying I think it's one way or another, just that I haven't seen any proof of innocence. I could make a list of the reasons why a case is dismissed, regardless of guilt or innocence.

    I deleted the comment that called him a name. I am not approving the comment tonight that calls her a name.

  18. Just out of curiousity, are you an attorney or anyone with a professional legal background?? While my heart goes out to true victims of assualt, there is not enough support for men who are falsely accused and you can't say that doesn't happen. However, you not knowing the intimate details of this case.....AS I DO, I can understand your comment. Please note that an innocent man's life was almost ruined here......where's the justice in that???? FYI, this wasn't dismissed on a technicality, or because there wasn't enough evidence to continue. Rather ALL of the evidence proved she lied. If a thorough investigation would have been done to BEGIN WITH, charges would have never been filed.
