So horrible is even the idea of child abuse that it can easily be used as a weapon to destroy ones reputation. In a court of law, one is innocent until proven guilty; however in the esteem of ones friends, family, and the community, just the opposite is often true. It is the accused who must prove himself innocent. In 1998, Janice and Kathy Porter (not their real names) falsely accused Richard Coulier of this most heinous crime of physically and sexually abusing his own daughter, Patty. The mother-daughter duo attempted to separate Richard from his son, too. Even though the allegations were preposterous, social workers and psychologists became so caught up in the drama of the Lie that they refused to see what really happened. Now, let the truth be known through Fannie Lillian Miles Bellamys words in Defaming Teddy: A Father Falsely Accused.
