Reader: Charles Farrar sex-assault charge raises questions even after stepdaughter recanted

In a feature article and multiple blog posts, Alan Prendergast has explored the story of

Charles Farrar, who remains in jail on sex crime charges

based on allegations his stepdaughter has now recanted.

The case leaves one reader with more questions.

Where has there been anything written about his other victims? If he's done this before (and it can be proven), chances are that he's lying and that his stepdaughter was coerced by family members to recant. If there are no records of him doing this before, I would be at the point I am now, wondering when, if ever, the girl told the truth.
