Guilty Until Proven Innocent
Charles Dyer Case
(Press Release to be used in its entirety)
It only takes an accusation! Let’s do a timeline analysis
and take a look at the chain of events knowing that only a portion of
the evidence was presented in the court of law. Your life has been
handed to 12 jurors with only partial information and they have been
instructed to make an informed decision affecting the remainder of your

time out for lying.

“bo-bo hurting” Valerie states she was red and swollen but no Physician

1/6/10 (Wednesday) – Charles

no report was filed during that time.
1/8/10 (Friday) – Valerie
reported the abuse to authorities however on the stand she testified
under oath that she “Went the next day after the child told her of the

or file charges if you really believed someone had abused your
1/8/10 - Valerie goes first to DHS, then the Duncan
Police Department and finally the Stephens County Sheriff’s Department
and files a report that her daughter has stated that her daddy touched
1/11/10 - THE DAY BEFORE THE FORENSIC INTERVIEW OF THE
CHILD. The child is kept home from school. 438 pornographic images are
viewed at various times through-out the day. They are of adults
engaging in sex and oral sex.
1/12/10 - The child is transported,
along with her mother, to Norman, Oklahoma by the Sheriff’s department
so that the child can be interviewed by forensic interviewer Jessica
Taylor at the Abbott House. During this interview the child states that
on January 2nd her father had sex with her and she performed oral sex
on him….multiple times in multiple locations in the trailer where he and
Amanda were living. 543 pornographic images were viewed between 11:26
and 11:41 AM. The forensic interview would not begin until 2:11 pm.
It is no more than an hour and half drive from Duncan to Norman. These
files were viewed well in advance of leaving for the interview. A great
amount of them were of adults engaged in oral sex.
to the Court House to request an officer to go with him to pick up his
daughter for visitation and was arrested when he arrived there since the
charges had been filed. The officers went to Charles’s house with
Amanda to collect items to send for DNA examination. They collected the
child’s pajamas, underwear, sheets, comforter and couch cushions. The
DNA profile obtained from the components excluded the child as a
The examination of Valerie’s computer hard
drive revealed the presence of adult pornography which was all
associated with the Internet Explorer web browser…on nine different
instances over six different days between December 25, 2009 and January
James Hekia (Valerie’s uncle who is a convicted Child
Molester) was living in the home with Valerie’s mother and Valerie and
the child stayed there prior to getting a home of their own. Valerie
even admitted under oath to leaving the child in that home while she was
gone doing drugs. Hekia is currently serving a 5 year prison sentence
that began in August of 2011 for charges of failing to register as a sex
While living in Oklahoma, Valerie and her brother contacted Charles’s
commanding officer in California and made accusations that he had abused
her and was making statements against the government. Later she called
his commanding officer and informed them that she was lying and wanted
to drop the charges. They did an investigation and he was later cleared
of all charges.
Valerie received $3282 from Charles for child
support during the 6 months prior to these accusations being made. Due
to her history, he had Valerie sign a log for each time she received
money. She received additional monies that were not documented.
1/22/11 – Charles arrested - Both Charles and Valerie were at the
Stephens County court house. Valerie then went and filed a report
stating that on the steps of the Stephens County court house, Charles
attacked her and had broken the restraining order she had against him.
Charles’s defense attorney immediately requested that the surveillance
tapes at the court house be reviewed to show that his client had not
attacked Valerie Dyer. According to this individual, when the tapes
were reviewed, they indeed proved that Charles Dyer had not physically
attacked Valerie Dyer. In fact, the tapes showed that Valerie had
attacked Charles and he was released.-
1/5/2012 - Charles has
requested a polygraph be performed which was eventually granted. His
family paid for this service to be performed since the Sheriffs office
was not interested in having this done. His Attorney commissioned a
polygrapher who arrived some time around 11 am Thursday January 5, 2012
and attempted to set up for the test in an unused jury room of the
Stephens County Court house. The procedure was interrupted by Judge
Enos (the presiding judge over Dyer’s trial) and told they could not
conduct the test on the same floor as the court rooms. The Judge
directed them to the lower floor of the court house telling them to get
with the Sheriff’s department to obtain a room. Sheriff McKinney
refused to provide a room and the testing was terminated without
The District Attorney’s office wired Valerie with
audio and had her contact both Charles and his friends to ask questions
about the case.
A motion was filed to revoke his bond after the
first trial when he was seen walking near the court house while his
family was in David Hammonds office next door. A report was filed that
he was casing out the court house and “told an officer that he was
looking for his lost dog” which the officer later testified under oath
that he actually never even spoke to Charles.
Charles was offered
a Plea this past Monday that was called a “Sweet Deal”. He was offered
a 2 ½ year sentence leaving him just 8 months to serve if he would
plead guilty and be listed on the Sex Offenders Registry. Charles
refused to plead guilty to this type of activity since he is not. He
took his chances with the system and was given 30 years due to the lack
of information provided to the jury.
I know seeing these
cases in the media tend to make us jump to a conclusion on someone’s
character and it is difficult to step back and examine all the facts,
especially when the local Sheriff comments to the news media that
Charles brought “Circus-like sideshows” to the case. His family has
been asked not to go to the media because we might “jeopardize the
trial” and we have followed their wishes. We have attempted to let the
system work and follow all of their requests. This is what we got,
Charles convicted in the media before we ever got to the courtroom.
Please listen to the facts and I hope you never find you or your family
in this type of a situation. If you do, hopefully you will get a fair
trial. We can’t fault the jurors for the 30 year sentence because the
court system does not allow them to receive all of the facts, even
thought the court makes you swear under oath to tell the “whole truth
and nothing but the truth”.
On the same Facebook mentioned above Allan Smith wrote this:
ago, I posted the following statement for The Innocence Project to see :
Marine Sgt Charles Dyer has now been convicted of sexually assaulting
his then 6 year old daughter. His most recent attorney did NOT call
witnesses nor present evidence which could have lead to "reasonable
doubt". This attorney has shafted the Sgt Dyer, his family and
supporters. Among the evidence which was not recognized in court was the
DNA test results which were negative re: Charles raping his daughter.
The ex-wife, who accused Charles of raping their daughter, has an uncle
who is a registered multiple sex offender ... and he had unrestricted
access to the young girl many times while Charles was serving over seas.
That man has NOT been investigated for having abused the girl. The
facts about this man were NOT submitted in court, thus an opportunity
for "reasonable doubt" were missed.
Sgt Charles Dyer is now
without an attorney, sitting in a jail in St Stephens County, Duncan,
OK, awaiting sentencing and the jury has asked for a 30 years sentence.
The services of The Innocence Project http://www.innocenceproject.org/about/Contact-Us.php
are desperately needed in this case. Sgt Dyer's life hangs by a thread
right now ( considering what happens to many who are convicted of child
sex offenses ).
Please contact Jan Dyer in Duncan, OK and get the ball rolling for an appeal / retrial of Dyer's case.
