Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Posted at 10:47 AM (CST) by & filed under General Editorial.

Dear CIGAs,

In our system, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty.

Here is some information of alleged acts dating back to 2010 to a situation many of you directly experienced and a few even repeated as presented to you in chat rooms and on public websites. My company and I have been hounded by internet trolls directly based on alleged material produced by these alleged acts.
