  1. While a profound advocate against domestic violence, readers should also keep in mind that there are two sides to every incident. Allow the process to play out and do not solely make judgement on initial charges.

  2. He was found not guilty on all charges in San Mateo County Superior Court on Thursday, October 17, 2013.

  3. Not only was he found not guilty, but the court noted that the allegations were found to be not true.

  4. I wonder why one of the children called 911 in the first place, then? Maybe the wife dropped the charges?
