To my surprise today. I was sent an email that was sent to people I am involved with for a new venture.
Subject: Reese Hopkins on WLVS starting March 5th?
Date: 2012-02-28 11:28
From: K—– M—– <k——_s—–@yahoo.com>
I understand you’re about to put the accused child rapist who spent two
years in jail on your airwaves starting March 5th. Id like more
information about this so I can alert the authorities in regards to
under aged children near the Georgia Avenue area. Id also like the names
of your station GM and Program Director so I can make them public for
Now, what has been failed to mention was obvious. I have been convicted of nothing and went to trial. My transcripts have been made available to the public and I have made every attempt to hand them out to anyone willing to ask for them.
This email sender did nothing to note the outcome of my case. Why is simple: They did not want to see anything but my conviction out of sheer hatred of me and what I stand for.
I will not hide from people like this. I will not rest until the truth is out there. I am no rapist. I do not hurt people. I have been an advocate for truth and telling the truth. When someone gives you half the story, they are lying to you. I will not and have no reason to lie to you. If I committed this crime, I would have to own up. I did not and chose to fight the lies being told to destroy my life and the possibilities of a career.
I challenge this email and the writer to ask for these transcripts. Speak to Det. Robert Arbuiso of the SVU Squad in Harlem. Ask him what he now thinks of the accuser in my case.
Ask him how he was pulled into the DA’s office and had his notes and investigation questioned when the accuser claimed she never told him key elements of the case. Ask him how he was accused of changing the accusers story in his notes, botching the case for them. Ask him how his 25 year career was called into question by a DA’s office that worked with him for 9 years.
Lastly… ask him how after 25 years he’s only had to testify for the defense twice. My case being the second.
You know how to reach me. I’ll be talking about this tonight on my www.BlogTalkRadio.com/ReeseOnTheRadio show tonight.
