In 2012, Amanda accused her ex-husband, George, a U.S. Army veteran, of molesting her then 7-year-old daughter, and he recently was sentenced to life in prison for the crime. George’s parents, Harold and Cindy, believe their son was wrongfully convicted, and they want to set the record straight in an effort to have him released. Emotions run high when the parents confront Amanda on Dr. Phil’s stage and accuse her of coercing her daughter into making false allegations against George. How does Amanda respond? Dr. Phil sorts through the details of the case in search of answers. How does George respond to the allegations? Tune in, and weigh in: Has a child molester been taken off the streets, or is an innocent man paying for a crime he didn’t commit? This program contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion advised. (OAD: 2-7-14)

i found this show very confronting ... on so many levels . the only things that stood out clear as anything was his admission in his original report , his admission to abusing his 7 year old step daughter . case solved.

The parents were spining but still sounded foolish but they love there son but this little girl is danmaged forever and your son is a monster . the people it happened to are flawed if the mother was a drrunk it just made it easier for her daughter to be a victume but his own dmitions is enough bread crumbs to lead you to the truth . How any one would think there would be DNA when they were in a shower as well as unless   there was penitration would have no relevance here any way ?  I also have to ask of the grandparents you speak as if there is no way this could be true even though you truley don't no that for a fact have you stoped once to think what if she has been victumized by your son ? because when asked the quistion of it being ok and YOU YOURSELVES ADMITING HIM SHOWERING WITH A 7 YEAR OLD LITTL GIRL WHOM IS NOT EVEN HIS CHILD !! Your response was to avoid truth and then deflect with bring up her mother ? You don't seem to be after the truth ? I was also bothered by the child support comments and fabrications. 1. I no personaly that child support stops and does not sart untill they are released so you lied about that as well as if a man period molestes a child and is punished for it why would they not have to still be responsible finacialy for the child after abusing a child ?

It really came across that the Mom would do anything to get what she wants.  I think Dr. Phil should have her take a lie detector test to see if she told lies to convict her husband, and if she told her daughter what to say.  She knew her husband had some areas she could exploit to make him look bad and therefore end up with custody of her children.  I think a lie detector test would answer a lot of questions.

The woman admitted that she lied about her ex-husband hitting her. She couldn't keep her story straight about where she found the clothes, which supposedly is what tipped her off to the issue in the first place. Then she admits to coaching her daughter.

Why wasn't a lie detector test done in this story? It seems like if any of all the shows on Dr. Phil, this story screams for one.

THIS MAN IS GUILTY AS CAN BE ! And it doesn't take a genius to know this, just someone with knowledge. I lived with a sex addict who molested my daughter when she was 11 years old. I watched this show and I couldn't believe that this man's answers to the police in his interview was like "looking in the mirror" ! Trust and believe that this man was living a double life. I have lived this nightmare. I was with my ex for 13 years and thought he just had a sex addiction that just effected OUR relationship. I was wrong. I am here to warn anyone and everyone of the danger of sex addiction. It is secretive, it is harmful, and it only gets worse when not treated. It is no different than a drug addict that uses just pot AT FIRST ! Unfortunetly I learned the hard way when my daughter was 11 years old and her 13 year old brother witnessed her being molested. I am NOT saying all accusations made against every man is always true. I am saying by this man's answers he IS NOT WRONGFULLY convicted. Police are trained to see right thru people like this, and unfortunetly people that have lived it can too. Like me.

How is it you know that Amanda's daughter's father is not in her life? Nothing about that was revealed in the show, yet you jump to the conclusion that because he is a man and not the custodial parent, he is some sort of loser and not in his daughter's life. Maybe Amanda had him thrown in prison, too. And Amanda is the Queen of Brilliant Choices and Parent of the Year...three babies with three daddies, just wonderful.

so manythings were left out, why in the world would you not capitalize on her  testimony or how she fabricated things to that innocent little girl. the grand parents love the 7 yr old, thhey are just discusted at the role the mother in question. how much of the little girlsis from her mom? just think about that. make a part 2

did you see the same show that i did? at the very  end dr p asked her if she fabricated any of that into her daughters head? she said yes. and she had child porn on her laptop, doesn't hat seem odd? taking all of that into considration, do you think she could have blown the story in her head by pulling up some porn on her laptopand asking that little inocent girl was it something like this picture this or a video like that? anyone seeing what they thought had happened would look alot worse than what it was? if that terible mother did that (I thinkshe did) carma will be comming her way soon. Wasn't she pregnant to? well i'll bet $100 that it is not her ex husbands, i'm basically saying thatshe had another realationship already in the making. She is an evil woman for what she did to a soldier and allthe bull that she tells well enough to get suckers like you to belive...

I'm trying to wrap my mind around the concept that this guy's parents don't seem to see an issue with a grown man showering with a 7yr old girl period. Not only that, they discounted their son's OWN WORDS. HE said them, let HIM take responsibility for them. It's obvious the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Then they embark on a campaign to destroy a 7 yr old girl? How pathetic are they? I wouldn't let them near my kids either. Good thing grandparents don't always have unlimited rights.

Who said Amanda got remarried? I didn't see a new husband or even a new boyfriend in the footage they aired. To me, personally, it just raised a red flag about Amanda's agenda that during a year that must have proven to be one of the most stressful in her life, her priority was to find a new boyfriend and become pregnant again. Trotting out the old "everyone behaves in a different way" reasoning reminds me of one of those 48 Hours Mystery stories where the wife kills the husband and within hours is phoning the life insurance company demanding the payout, immediately gets a boob job and spends most of the next months of her life partying like there's no tomorrow. Her excuse? "People grieve in different ways"! That load of nonsense continues to fly to this day in this type of case. Some things make sense, others don't. It's funny that the "incident" allegedly occurred just days after George threatened divorce and to seek custody of their son, after Amanda was found drunk while babysitting several children and threatening to kill herself. Amanda had a history of making false accusations of adultery to the military, only to recant saying "she wanted to get him in trouble".

And there was no child pornography found on George's own laptop. There were two long file names only on Amanda's laptop and an old tower deskstop stored in the garage, which the forensics "expert" insisted must have been child porn. No images, just file names in the computer history. But I'm sure once the jury heard "child porn", George's goose was cooked.

Things aren't so cut and dried anymore.
