I don't think Dennis Wiese was going for subtlety on this one
The KELO Land website post tonight was entitled "Dennis Wiese Says Sutton Lied," so I didn't expect him to mince any words regarding the hearings this week. But in reading the article, the father of the boy making the allegations against Senator Sutton, Dennis Wiese, seems conciliatory:
He doesn't call it a regret. But Dennis Wiese says if he could go back, he might take a different approach in dealing with Sutton after learning Sutton might have groped his son.Read it all here.
"I've pursued a strategy of forgiveness early on. And maybe it was the wrong thing to do. It certainly was when I watched (lawyers Patrick) Duffy, (Mike) Butler, and Sutton use that and a number of other things to twist the truth, to benefit their client," Wiese says.
Wiese reported the incident to Attorney General Larry Long two nights after the alleged groping, but still appeared cordial with him in public.
"I asked for his vote, I'll admit to that. I don't think there's a sin in that. But I also think it was always an effort to say, Dan, it's not about Julie, it's not about Dennis, it's not about the other kids, it's about about Austin and you. Can you find a way?" Wiese says.
A way to apologize. Wiese says for several months that's what his family has wanted.
"What we've tried to do is make Dan Sutton say, 'I'm sorry. I want to get help.'" Wiese says.
