It is strange and troubling that long after the criminal case ended, it was discovered the accuser had physical evidence of over 7 relationships he had with adult men and women when he was as young as 15 years old. None of them were Eric Pepin. None of them were ever pursued or questioned by police.
An even sadder statement on the injustice done by the police and district attorney is this:
During testimony, the accuser was asked about claims he made during the criminal case to police which he repeated, on paper, in his civil lawsuit. These are shocking statements he claimed Eric Pepin had done and when.
With complete indifference, he casually stated claims he made never happened.
The lawyers sat still for a moment – had he just said claims he made NEVER HAPPENED?!
They asked what any logical human would follow with: If those things never happened, why did you say they did? Why did he tell police they happened, why was he claiming damages in his own lawsuit for things he is now saying never happened?
The man shrugged and said they should ask his lawyer.
Here is perhaps the most disturbing part: nobody cared. They acted as if it was business-as-usual and continued on as if nothing interesting had really happened. As if it was all a given and things like this happen every day. It’s just another day on the job, earning a living. Somebody lies to the police, lies in their lawsuit, destroys innocent lives… and it’s no big deal. Happens all the time. That’s life. Get over it.
Nobody seemed shocked by the discovery, as if it was a given that everyone already knew the man was lying. It’s just the way the system works. It’s not about guilty or innocent, it’s just a system that moves along and people make money from it. In the end it spits you out, the just, the unjust… all the same. Justice, as is often said, is indeed blind.
