I am not convinced that accusations based on 20 or 30 year old memories are valid. It is too bad, but memories from such a long time ago are no longer accurate. Ask any neurologist or psychologist about very old memories and see what they say about them. This is not to say that nothing happened, but, rather, I mean to say that there is no accurate record of what really did happen that long ago. I do not think that anyone should be convicted on such shaky evidence. Let us, instead, look for recent violations and prosecute them on the basis of the children who were violated recently.
