    Special Episode # 03 - Bruce McLaughlin - False Allegations of Sexual Assault

    Special Episode # 03 - Bruce McLaughlin - False Allegations of Sexual Assault

    Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to the American Justice Podcast "Special Episodes". As we continue to work on production of the second season, we're bringing you a story today of some false allegations made against a father, a husband, a human being. As a criminal defense attorney falsely accused and jailed during an emotionally charged divorce, McLaughlin found himself ill-prepared for the challenges to proving his innocence. “More than 80% of abuse accusations leveled amid divorce proceedings prove to be false,” McLaughlin has since learned. He was one of the very, very few with the expertise, resources, and network necessary to eventually overturn his conviction—after spending 4 years in jail for an abhorrent crime he did not commit. Bruce’s eventual redemption allowed him to restore his law license, reputation, and life. He continues to rebuild his relationship with his four children. In the links below, you can learn more about Mr. McLaughlin's story, buy his book, and contact him if you are in need of legal advice.

Love Love Love

I freaking love this podcast! Thank you so much for all the hard work y’all put into each and every episode. I love the Brandon Woodruff case. I grew up in Mesquite, Tx and remember when this happened. I now live in Rockwall and love talking to people about this case. Keep getting the word out. #FreeBrandonWoodruff

Season 1

If you are presenting TRUTH, present FACTS and leave personal opinion out.

DoniK2 ,

Just Awful

I became interested in this case after seeing the 20/20 episode on it and began researching it because it seemed so open & shut on this episode. Somehow found this podcast but gave up on it. Way too much sarcasm & making fun of others. I don’t care how much of the country either host has seen. Just present the facts of the case. No idea if Brandon is guilty or not but this podcast made me give up caring about it.
