“Charles, have you heard what the allegations are that have been brought up?” she asked him.
“No,” Charles said coldly.
“It’s been alleged that you have had some inappropriate contact with Julie.”
“That’s ridiculous!” Charles roared. “Who accused me of that? I want to know. It couldn’t have been anything that Julie said. She’s not very good at speaking. Who would believe a three-year-old anyway?”
“So you’re denying that you’ve touched her inappropriately?”
“I would never do anything to hurt her!” Charles was outraged.
“Maybe you didn’t think that you were hurting her,” Cheryl said.
“You’re trying to get me to say something, but I didn’t do anything,” Charles said.
“Would you be willing to take a lie detector test regarding that?” Cheryl asked.
Charles was quiet and almost froze at the question. “Um, no,” Charles said, toning down a little. “I have major anxiety attacks and seizures, so I wouldn’t be able to take one. I wouldn’t do well with it.”
