Polygraph Test Clears Man of Charges

MEDFORD, Ore. — A polygraph test has cleared a man of three counts of sodomy with a child.

The Jackson County District Attorney’s Office dismissed the charges against Dustin Flannery. Flannery’s attorneys say passing the lie detector test along with lack of motive and opportunity was enough to show a grand jury that Flannery was not guilty

In a statement Flannery said, “Being stuck in a jail cell not having seen the sky in three months for a crime you didn’t commit is one of the most frustrating and terrifying experiences anyone can endure. I couldn’t have made it without everyone fighting for me.”

    An innocent man wrongly accused by a lazy detective and DA.

    Congratulations to Mr. Flannery. This is why we ALL must remember that someone is innocent until and unless they are proven guilty, and even then it sometimes isn’t true. Remember all of those innocent people who have been cleared by DNA and other evidence by the innocence project.

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” I hope that this terrible trial for Mr. Flannery and his family becomes his testimony and he is better for it in some way. I also hope that law enforcement, the DA’s office and the local media realize they should not be so quick to judge and wait until the facts surface until personal damage is caused.

    I also hope that whomever made this report is now prosecuted for making a false report and potential civil action is taken to recover what Mr. Flannery may have lost.

    Yet when already life-time registered sex-offender John Hugo was accused of re-offending and molesting a little girl (she went to Ashland hospital & counseling) Jackson County Sheriff never brought him in for questioning or polygraph. A visit to his home by detectives, and he denied ever being alone with the child at his house, during a two year period of time when she would visit. Where is the justice again?
