    I have to agree with the last comment, the best thing for all the people involved is prayer! I know everyone involved and this is a bad situation. My prayers are with you ALL! These are all good people and I hate that this has happened. I also pray that the truth comes out, and that somewhere in all this, peace and closure can take place. I love you all and I will continue to pray for you.

    Amen gordonfan 1 you are right we don't need to judge but the best think we can do for both families is to pray!

    Wow..I went to school with Mike and I cannot believe this. I hope everyone will pray for both families and for this situation instead of just judging. I don't know the circumstances or the truth, but I do know how to pray!

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    If you're not the appointed judge over the court or he who will judge us at the end of days, then please have enough decency to keep your condemnations to yourself until there has been made a verdict.

    @ Oh_yea123

    If you are so enlightened as to know the whole story and have infallible and presentable evidence against him. Please don't aggress people without your privledged information, merely inquiring on the situation.

    I can't stand the act of hurting a child, but even moreso I can't stand for convicting a man who hasn't wronged anyone. Which is why I must stand for an unbiased court.

    To think society's presumptions are without reflection from members of the jury is ignorant. Use discretion before posting folks.

    All I am saying is we just need to pray for Mike & this girl and pray that one of them will come up and tell the truth....But personally I think this should be an open & shut case because of the circumstances

    I must say that it outrages me to see anybody try to place any of the blame on anybody else other then the pedophile that commmented the act. You are obviously a sick and twisted indvidual. May God help you.

    Sneezy, unlike yourself, I know all parties involved very well. Unlike yourself, I speak knowing the facts of what happened, not just commenting on what I "think" is the truth. Mike comes from a good family but that does not change the fact in what he has done to this little girl. If you know Mike so well, you know he has not denied this. If you do not know that much of the story, then obviously, you don't know Mike as well as you thought you did, which only makes your comments look foolish.

    This person named Right_ here do you know Mike and this girl and how do you know what happened only the lord up above knows the truth so the lord will let the truth come out
