Dr. Phil -- Father Molesting Daughter? I'm not so sure.

So I don't usually watch Dr. Phil, in fact this will be the 2nd time I actually sat down and watched a full episode (the 1st was an animal abuse episode). But while I was flipping through the channel, this case intrigued me. The case is of a grandmother accusing her son-in-law of molesting his 4-5 year old daughter. And after seeing the episode I have to go on the fathers side this time. I think there is SO much evidence supporting his innocence. One big piece of evidence for me is this little girl was taken in by her family to get full rape kits done on her, both of which showed evidence of nothing. Another thing that makes me skeptical is the grandmother herself was a victim of molestation when she was 5 years old. And this could really have an impact on her charges. First, she charged ANOTHER man for molesting her granddaughter, which is the first time that little girl had to go through a rape test. The man was found innocent, so this woman moved on to her son-in-law (who she has always hated). The little girl had to go through her 2nd rape test after the new allegation, which also turned up nothing. Another thing that REALLY makes me believe in the fathers innocence is that the grandmother said the little girl told her that her daddy wears a blue mask when he molests her...but guess what...the blue mask is at GRANDMA's house, and daddy is not welcome there. And something else that makes me question the grandmother is her attitude towards her son-in-law. Dr. Phil asked grams, "if the lie detector shows us that the father is not guilty for this accusation, will you apologize to him and leave him alone?" And the woman just said, "no." If I accused someone of something as horrific as this, and it turns out they were innocent, I would apologize until I was blue in the face, and I wouldn't expect them to accept it, which I would understand. What do you guys think? Based off what I gave you do you think this guy is innocent? The show left off with Dr. Phil telling us the dad has agreed to a polygraph test, but we won't see the results until Monday!

Sounds like he is innocent and since I don't have time to watch TV, maybe you can update us on the results...

Oh I def. will bring an update. Either way I'm going to be ranting on here...whether it be "the witch put that little girl and her loving father through so much!!!!" OR "that sadistic freak hurt his daughter, I hope they ******** " Lol

I do to. I would be extremely, 100% surprised if the lie detector said he did it. It's going to be torture waiting for Monday, but it'll get here soon enough! I'll def. let you know!

I quite like Dr Phil. It sounds to me from what you said that the Dad is indeed innocent. Why put the child through all that crapola...why is the grandmother given so much power? The little one could be affected like this for life not to mention how does the Dad go about living down the accusations. How does the show find these people..are they really for real??

I'm not 100% sure but I think the people contact the show and they can get on that way. They are for real! I believe with ANY accusation of a child being harmed, it has to be taken seriously, no matter who the accuser is. The aunt also believes that the little girl is being hurt by SOMEONE, but she said multiple times she doesn't think it's the goods dad doing it.

I hope they go after her, if she did do this to ruin his name and make his life miserable, and put her grandchild through this. I am curious how it all turns out.

I'm curious too. I hope that once the test proves the father is innocent (*crosses fingers*) the mother of the child doesn't let the grandmother see her anymore.

OMG, I think the mother in law is evil. Just because she can't stand her son-in-law she is making her granddaughter go through a rape test twice. I have to remember to watch on Monday. I was not able to watch it today. I truly think he is innocent from what you have said. I also think he would not say yes to a polygraph test if he was guilty of such a horrid thing.

Yea Dr. Phil stressed and stressed that if he was not absolutly positive he would pass the test then he shouldn't take it, because you can't beat the test. And the guy didn't even look worried. He didn't look like someone with something to hide. The grandmother's daughter said something very true to me, she said, "you raped my daughter." It wasn't the dad, it was the tests done to her in the hospital. I will be 100% shocked if the lie detector says he did it.

Hello Lily, I don't know because I haven't watch the episode, doubt that episodes are completely aired here live. usually, I think the grandma is too old to be letting go of her pride and apologize. the fact that you mentioned that they actually made some make up kits to make it look like a rape scene is convincing enough. maybe they should have the child check it to the Doctor and see it for themselves instead.

I actually think this woman is a young grandmother, don't be picturing white hair and wrinkles for her. Oh no, there was no crime scene that was made to look like a rape. The girl was taken to the hospital to have a rape kit (aka a rape test) done on her to determine if she had been harmed. It came back negative, she was not raped.
