The Infectious Myth – What I said when I was eight – 07.11.17

When Chaneya Kelly was eight she stood up in court and said her father had sexually assaulted her. He was sentenced to 20-40 years, almost 20 years ago. Later she said she was bullied by her mother, police and prosecutors, as well as promised a special present, if she testified that she was abused. In 2012, the justice system established a commission to review her father’s case, but it told Chaneya she is lying now, and was telling the truth when she was eight. But she is not giving up.
