Amysmom...not sure what you are saying
Does that mean that there has to be other evidence or witnesses, that the word of the victim is not enough?
(b) A person shall not be convicted of incest or of an attempt to commit incest upon the uncorroborated testimony of the person with whom the offense is alleged to have been committed.
What does this say to you? I want to be sure I have it right cos if not I'll look like a major idiot
Nothing's really moot regarding the 3 uncles, IMO. I'll be hard to convince they're not related to BW's disappearance.
It may be a while before more details come out regarding the 2 arrested. I think LE has to handle this delicately to try to get as much info as possible from them. I hope they know what they're doing.
While I do have some inside information, there are still gaps in what I know. I just thought the situation was bad until the most recent bomb dropped day before yesterday. Now everything we thought we knew becomes suspect if it was at all related to the 3 uncles and/or the wives.
But from what I do know, it's unlikely the minor victim had the opportunity to bring new information since DH's death. Based on the family dynamic, it just doesn't seem possible unless there is a victim I don't know about. However, the investigation into BW's disappearance may have provided evidence that was needed in order to arrest the 2 uncles.
(of evidence, a statement, etc.) lacking confirmation or evidence
That's how it looks to me but that's not only completely unfair but crazy too! :maddening:
It does. However, I don't think they would have made the arrest if they didn't think they already had "more." I read somewhere that one of the men confessed and implicated the other man. So a complaining victim plus a confession or a complaining victim plus the testimony of an accomplice is probably enough, MOO.
pretty sure incest is a felony, I think all three of his charges are felonies and each has a 50K bond.
also, on WWH FB she stated she took the BOYS(son) to the styx river house not the daughter.
She has now wiped everything off her FB dating back to April 2012
Thanks amysmom. I was hoping you'd chime in with a timeline as I know you've been pretty good piecing the events together.
Maybe DK ratted on SW which is why is bond was lower and he got released on bond?
I read it as being put in there as protecting someone from a false accusation. I guess they can always poly the alleged perp if he denies...esp if there is no physical evidence.
That is why it can take a while for charges to be made. In cases I've been familiar with, LE usually does a thorough investigation and gets their ducks in a row before bringing forth charges. jmoo
I don't hold out much hope for any evidence that was found outside. About June 9th the area had major flooding with over 2 ft of rain. The searches didn't begin until at least a week later.
I think these two were being looked at 4 months ago just like uncle Donnie!
Maybe he gave other names too!
Im sorry this is just so twisted!
How do ppl get like this!
Oh no, I completely agree with you! I am so grieved for the children in this family circle. What I'm trying to say is that all the "what did he say to so and so on that date that made blah blah do yada?". I think when cases take a gossipy turn it's time to draw up the reins and refocus on the victims. I hope I was clear enough. MOO
I agree with your opinion.
I think the molestation probably goes back generations. After so long the lines between right and wrong get blurred. They learn to look the other way and make excuses - Men will be men. I also think these men think it's just a little harmless fun. Daddy did it, Uncle does it, the girls all turned out fine. It almost reminds me of the Texas communes where the young girls are encouraged/groomed by their mothers.
I hope these arrests expose the whole lot. These little girls need to know it's not right for Uncle Daddy to molest them and there are laws that protect them.
Seems it's to protect innocent people from being convicted of something where there is no proof.....:twocents:
