I've long believed that anyone who frames another, or who engages
dishonestly or illegally to convict someone of any crime, should be subject to
the very same penalty faced by the person wrongly convicted. I think that would
be a tremendous deterrent to people like this man's ex-wife, as well as to
dishonest law enforcement and prosecutors.
procuradorfiscal: Before we jump to way too many conclusions, here, let's
remember that this guy pled guilty to a pretty horrendous crime. He now says he
didn't do it, and the kids, for some reason, now agree. Maybe it's
even true.In reading the article, I got out of it that he plead
guilty to avoid the 15 years in prison. when asked to tell in explicit detail
what had happened, he couldn't. the parole officer heard about it, and to
prison he went. Maybe this is also true. I can easily see why he would plead
guilty for probation rather than spend 15 years in the Big House, can't

possible explanations, as well. Some of them involving scenarios in which he
really is guilty, but has arranged for the evidence now to appear otherwise.It'd be hard to explain his original guilty plea, if he really were
factually and militantly innocent.
If Peterson's ex wife and her husband can't be legally prosecuted, can
he at least sue them. This is outrageous what they did to him.
If there is justice in this universe, ex-wife and hubby should do some time.
My kids have learned to be responsible people by having natural and
logical consequences for their actions. If the rest of society wants to guard
against this extreme miscarriage of justice happening elsewhere, then
consequences need to be dispensed. How about a month for every year
they forced this innocent man to spend in prison? Sounds about right to me...
