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)

Are his parents for real? They are disgusting and I hope they never get to see Amanda's son as they have shown a complete disregard for a child's right to be safe and have a happy normal childhood since they think their son talking about showing a little girl hardcore sex and looking for child porn is ok! Glad this disgusting pedo is behind bars where he BELONGS!

was going off what WAS IN HIS STATEMENT TO THE POLICE he admitted to showing a small child hardcore sex (his own words) that is grooming behaviour right there - his parents are deluded and I wouldn't want my kids near them since they think their precious son is innocent - seriously no mum would make their child go through a trial and I am glad this disgusting pedo is behind jail and I hope he gets some prison justice!

Is that YOUR rules, or national rules?



And you really think a man should go to jail for life, if they break that rule?

yes, he admitted some things. Touching some places, watching porn.


Question is: Is that worth a life sentence?

Many people talking in this show, and even more people has a opinion.


But if I understand correctly, only 2 people have knowledge of the facts. 1 is the soldier who has life sentence, and denies the accusings. 2nd is a 7 year old who can be easiliy manipulated.


For me, it is hard to believe that somebody can get a life sentence with only a testimony of a 7 year old girl! I would say, look at DNA evidence. They didn't found any!


Is it THAT wasy to get a life sentence in America? Yes, some circumstances are suspicious, but my opinionis, you have to be damned sure before you give someone a life sentence!

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.
