[Update, Tuesday 7:20 PM]: I have found from a hidden camera the meeting between Len Gregor, Chris Arnt, Brian House, and others on the Nightmare Team. Here is Gregor addressing the troops following the verdict:
As you can see, he was quite inspirational!!
What a time for my Internet to go out, but not before I read "Not Guilty" on all counts. ALL COUNTS.
My wife prayed that not only would Tonya Craft be exonerated, but that the jurors would be angry, and her prayers were answered on both counts. Indeed, I am glad that the jury saw through the lies, the bullying, and outright fabrication of "evidence," along with the utter unfairness of how "judge" Brian House ran his courtroom.
I need to say one thing, however, is that while the jurors did their job, and did it magnificently, the "system" DID NOT WORK. Had the "system" worked, there would have been no charges, no trial, and no spending of everything Tonya and her family had. If the "system" had worked, Len Gregor would not have been allowed to stand before a jury and tell them that four highly-respected medical and psychological figures were "whores of the court" and people who told "lies for money."
Had the "system" worked, these children would not have been badgered by "therapists" who had no credibility into fabricating wild stories of abuse. Had the "system" worked, Len Gregor and Chris Arnt would not have been able to keep MOUNTAINS of exculpatory evidence from reaching the jury.
(I will be having a future post on the evidence that House refused to let the jury see. Trust me when I say that when you see it, you will understand why I believe that the only real justice would be for House, Arnt, and Gregor never to be permitted to practice law again. Oh, I forgot. They DON'T practice law. They make it up as they go along.)
This "trial" was a farce, a sham, and a blot on the Lookout Mountain Judicial District. The only saving grace was Tonya and her brave attorneys, all of whom took abuse I never have seen allowed before in any courtroom, as well as the jury itself, which saw through the bullying and the lies.
It will take a day or so to gather all of my thoughts. However, I will say that given the dishonest conduct I saw from the associates of the Children's Advocacy Centers, I suspect that this organization is going to need a very successful fundraiser Friday, given the lawsuits that are going to come down upon it.
And there is more work to do. Len Gregor and Chris Arnt have managed to garner wrongful convictions against others for the same false offenses, people who did not have the resources and the legal help to defend themselves against these execrable bullies. I intend to investigate and to write on this in the future.
For now, we celebrate an island of decency in what has been a sea of outright evil. But on this day, Tonya Craft was exonerated by a jury of her peers. I thank God for that.
