    They never seem to showcase a person's innocence, as much as they blast what they portray as guilt. I wish the same efforts were made in the goal of getting his career back. Middle school principle/teenage girls, those two things alone are a life killer almost, much less his career. I hope he can get back on his feet soon. Good Luck Fella!!

    A man's life has been ruined. This is so sad...

    Notice how this is just a blurb about his innocence (or assumed innocence), but the original story was much more of a deal. Give us some info on why he was aquitted

    That's my line of thinking dj. He has already lost his job and his reputation is ruined. So now does he get his career back and a public apology?

    Not guilty still not going to get his career back...

    Mr Sensible....Apparently you read these forums.

    Mr Sensible -- better share those drugs you're taking.

  • bombayrunner Nov 8, 2010

    I remember this one. Poor guy (or now rich guy) may never get his reputation back.

    Probably spelled Disney wrong on a url and got sex pics instead!

    Who was the person that told these lies on this man? They should be revealed to the public.
