>Do I note an embarrassed silence on the part of those on this

I'm sorry to be joining this discussion late. I was away.

I know Bob slightly, and have e-mailed with him since his
arrest. He was living with a much younger woman, in a
conservative community, and he took sexual photos that might be
called soft-core pornography. This isn't a crime. But when the
woman he lived with died, his own belief is that ambitious
prosecutors singled him out as an easy target, and tried to
advance their careers by fabricating a case for murder. Or maybe
they believed their case, but the evidence (or so Bob says) was
essentially made up.

Bob sent out lengthy e-mail updates, describing in great detail
what he and his lawyers thought was irregular or even outright
illegal behavior by the prosecution.

I'm in no position to swear that Bob is right about all this, or
that he's innocent. I did, though, find his e-mails credible.
And the story he tells is far from impossible. Outrageous
miscarriages of justice have taken place in small American towns
and cities. I've seen some documented on TV, including one
affair where a prosecutor fabricated the results of DNA tests,
not once, but many times, sending innocent people to jail.

In another case, police in a small town in Texas arrested people
for alleged ritual Satanic murders, even though no bodies were
ever found, and no alleged victims were ever reported missing.
These police even arrested one of their own officers, after he
said that the murders never happened. They claimed he was part
of the plot. Eventually the state of Texas sent an investigator,
who determined that no murders were ever committed. He was
visibly shaken as he gave his account on TV.

But again - I can't say that anything like this ever happened in
Bob's case, and I'm telling these horror stories only to show
that Bob's position isn't absurd on its face.

I thought his defense of himself should at least be mentioned
