    Martha, Lindsey and family, I am so sorry for what you all are going through, what ever the outcome this is, it is a very hard thing to deal with. I will agree with you that there are many small minded people here, but about 10 years ago we went through this before. Another man that everybody trusted, liked and never would have believed would have sexually assualted a minor plead guilty and was sent to jail. So, it is just a little scary for us. We live here for are kids to be safe and some of the people that we trust the most are accused of things such as this. I always liked your dad and had alot of respect for him. I hope that this is not true and that he comes home safely and you can all put this behind you. Just the lack of details makes us wonder a little more. Please take care and you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    So Martha, what are the facts?

    This is what's trully wrong with our society- to assume without knowing the facts and how small minded people are quick to judge. His family are faithfully awaiting his return home with open arms along with a handful of true friends that have shown great support.

    I would have never suspected this from Roberto. I'm interested to hear more of the details when they're released. What a terrible thing to do.
