No. It sounds like the defense lawyer is trying to give his client a decent defense. I have no idea if he did these things or not, but he has every right to have his lawyer ask if the accusers might have some motive for making this claim. If he did it, let him rot. But if he didn't, he should be able to challenge his accusers.

These girls are def not what they portray to be. The eldest one was on national tv for "chongalicious" for the popular KDTV Univision show 'Cristina' and making complete fool of herself. Bad example for her child- a toddler.

I agree with the last two comments - it is scary to think that. he lost 2 years of his life if he is innocent(and he has kids too).
From other reports I have read it does seem like they have alternative motives. Big ups to Darby Williams for countering with a better witness. A retired cop (mis)interpreting a study or a trained doctor/clinical psychologist.... (i'll take the later)

What is so scary is how women (possibly mothers) defend that man and judge the "victims" after THREE girls decided to come forward. Just a question...if a prostitute was raped, would it make it OK because she is a prostitute? I don't think so! People are judging these females as if they asked to be molested at such young age by the man whom their family wrongfully trust, if he was to be guilty.

Me too, I feel in my heart he is innocent. I'm not judging the girls, I'm taking into account his character and everything I know of him- however, I've been known to be wrong, so my biggest desire is that the correct verdict is given. I hope that whomever needs to face consequences for their actions, get(s) the chance to do so.
