    Not prospects, prospectors. It's a reality tv show about people who go out to the mountains in Colorado and dig for stones/minerals. This particular prospector (RF) seems to always do well, he found a lot of minerals.

    I understand you and respect all that you said. I know how my statement seems. I don't believe or disbelieve anything just because the father is trustworthy. My whole point in all of this is that we should never be quick to judge. I pray the truth come out in every situation like this.

    Quite. I think this should serve as a lesson. And btw predators often choose victims who are vulnerable in the sense they won't be believed/supported should they say something about the abuse. They want to get away with their violations so they pick accordingly, relying on their own status as being more authoritative/believable than their victim's when it's their word against the mark.

    edited to add: It also bothers me, and I see this a lot, that it needs to be another upstanding MAN vouching for the veracity of the girls' claims that changes people's minds.

    "Monday, a judge set Fretterd's bond at $25,000. The prosecution had lobbied for higher, stating Fretterd was not only a high flight risk but had the means to leave.
    The judge ruled that Fretterd would undergo mandatory GPS monitoring while out on bond, would not be permitted to leave Colorado, and would have to surrender his passport."

    "A one-time cast member of a television show, facing 49 counts for allegedly sexually assaulting two children, is now on the run.
    Rich Fretterd, formerly of The Weather Channel show "Prospectors" failed to show up to get an ankle monitor Wednesday.
    It was the outcome prosecutors had feared, arguing at Fretterd's bond hearing Monday that he was a flight risk with the means to skip town. "

    Update:

    So, yeah, heartbroken, is a word I still use. Why fail to pick up the GPS monitor?

    He was going to say goodbye to his daughter before he went into hiding.

    It is sad. So far she has not been charged because she let the police in her home to get Rich, per ch. 13 news. She was the one who posted bond.
