$16M verdict for false molestation charge

From a recent court opinion:
In 1995, the biological father changed his mind and permitted White to adopt both children. When an acquaintance asked Tina why the children’s biological father agreed to the termination of his parental rights, Tina replied that she had threatened to charge him with child molestation if he did not cooperate.
What kind of a father would cave in to such a threat, and give up his parental rights?

A smart one. Tina conspired with the police and prosecutor to frame husband no. 2 for molestation. He tried fighting the charges in court. He even tried fleeing to Costa Rica. He served several years in prison before eventually proving his innocence. There is more info at
