Imagine you are accused of a terrible crime you didn’t commit. Jon Gunnarsson recounts the story of school teacher Horst Arnold who was falsely accused of rape and imprisoned without a shred of evidence. Despite being eventually found innocent, the corrupt judiciary who placed him there have never been held to account.
Gonzo Historian, Robert St. Estephe has returned with a story that will seem very familiar to many fathers today. In 1936 William H. W. Evans was jailed for kidnapping his daughter based on accusations by his ex-wife; he went on a hunger strike to protest as he had a written agreement to share custody. The only difference to today? That written agreement actually mattered to the Judge. He was cleared of all kidnapping charges.
Robert St. Estephe returns to the pages of A Voice for Men to remind us, as always, that there is nothing new under the sun. And that includes a type of crime that society is all to willing to ignore. This time, it is the case of Charles Atkinson, who was released from prison after he was cleared of a false allegation of rape by his step daughter, Mary Miller. [Illustration by Typhonblue]
