I Am and Have Been Amazed by The Outpouring of Love, Support, and Generosity from All Corners of The Globe. I hope that My Search for The Truth Has Aided Others, Both Men, and Women, Who Have Found Themselves in Similar Situations, and That Those Who Support Them Never Give Up. I Also Hope That, Both in The Courts and In the Media, the Stance Will Henceforth Be “innocent until Proved Guilty.”
