I am free. All charges against me have been dropped. After two years, 5 months, and 19 days of enduring this arduous battle for my freedom, for my name, and for the right to protect my daughter, I am free. And just as if I’d spent this time fighting off the attack of the word’s biggest, most vicious grizzly bear, I wear the scars of battle. My daughter and I have both suffered unthinkably because of this.
From the first moment of this attack, I knew what this all meant. I knew that my ability to protect my daughter from abuse; my ability to be the father that my child deserves was being maliciously assaulted. As a dedicated parent and adoring father, I could not and will not accept the terrible fate that those attacking me have decided for my daughter. I battled with that monstrous grizzly bear and after almost 2½ years of struggle, that bear has been put down, while both my daughter and I stand victorious.
There is of course much more to be said regarding my exoneration, but for now I’ll conclude this statement with a big thank you to all who have supported me through this process. All my family, friends, and supporters near and far. Thank you for everything. Together, we have struck a tremendous blow against injustice.
