Every adult who works with children, lives on the edge of a nightmare. That nightmare arrived for me the day I wasfalsely accused of a crime worse than murder:the sexual assault of a student.What was done to me over the nextfour years destroyed not only my teaching career, but every vestige of theworld I knew. As the horror expanded, Ibecame intimately aware of how police and prosecutors can coerce witnesses,manipulate evidence, or ignore evidence entirely if it doesn't fit theiragenda.What happened to me has happenedand will continue to happen to others, despite the fact that we cannot protectchildren by condemning innocent people or by creating victims where noneexist. It was a life-defining experiencethat forced me to face the fact that, despite my innocence, I had made my owncontribution to the nightmare.Innocence Isn't Enough is the true storyof a journey into the purgatory of false accusation and the darkness of thelegal system. It is the story of how Isurvived that terrible journey and what I learned that might help prevent thehorror from happening to someone else.
