I am totally shocked and dismayed by this horrendous outcome I am actually crying. As though there isn’t enough heartache in our worlds that such a lovely person has to endure this.
I am an old friend and colleague of Danielle’s and I knew her at the time this stuff was supposed to have been going on (I don’t believe a word of it). I’m horrified and disgusted that a person with no criminal history could have been convicted on the strength of no more than the 34-year-old stories told by one person. I thought British justice needed evidence to before someone even went trial.
We were so sad to hear the news today and just want you to know that you are very much in our thoughts and prayers. We hope an Appeal with go ahead in the near future; you know we believe, as we always have, in your innocence. For the time being, sending you our love.
I am so so so sorry, sad, cross, shocked at this!!!! The only good thing I read – which we all know is true is the judge said: ‘world-famous harpist with a reputation for kindness and integrity’.
I am almost speechless with horror… The trouble is that child abuse is flavour of the month at the moment and these accusers are all being believed.
I want you to know that personally it has not altered my view that Danielle is innocent, and that this is a massive travesty of justice. We are all thinking of her. I hope she can find the strength to hold on to her own self – no-one can destroy that, no matter how much they lie and bully.
It is a cruel travesty, this business, and I never want to end up in front of a court in this country...
I am truly appalled by what has happened to Danielle.
I just want you to know that I’m absolutely devastated by the news today and by the injustice that has been committed. I and my family all love Danielle, we believe in her innocence and always shall. In the meantime I shall hope and pray for this outcome to be changed and that the real truth will be discovered.
You must be devastated and no doubt angry with the law, the system and all those who have slandered Danielle and of course yourself. It is unacceptable that an innocent person should suffer such a punishment on the hearsay of a man thirty years after the alleged incident.
