The media should be careful about the presumption of guilt in these cases. Many times the defendant is forced to settle, especially when fighting the unlimited resources of the U.S. Government, in order to limit litigation expenses.

Ican not believe that Dr and Mrs Janke was guilty, There was a lot of jealousy from other sorces, Yes th wrong decision was made in hiring some people but out of love, trust and their hearts they believe in these so call people. so please do not believe wat gossip youmay hear, Dr and Mrs Janke are loving and caring peopl.
