Horrifying, heartbreaking, stunning. This reminds me of the "witch hunt" child-sexual-abuse cases in Massachusetts (I seem to recall there was more than one) from the 1990s. What is the estimated percentage of men in jail because of this kind of coerced testimony, I wonder, and is there any way to start to reform this?
