But there was one problem: none of it actually happened.
There had been no such sex ring — a truth that only emerged after 43 parents were arrested and dozens of children were made wards of the state. The harrowing accusations were completely unfounded, leaving Wenatchee desperate for answers.
Fox Nation gasheer Nancy Grace sat down with one such family in Monday’s episode of “Misdaadstories,” where they opened up about their personal experience living through a nightmare that changed their family forever.
In Desember 1994, Mark and Carol Doggett had been accused of raping one of their children after moving to Wenatchee and were each consequently sentenced aan ten years in state prison. But it never actually happened, Grace observed. It was later discovered that the Doggett children had been bullied into accusing their parents of sexual assault by investigators. Both parents were eventually cleared of all charges.
Amber Doggett, a young child at the time of the police interrogation, told Grace in Fox Nation’s new episode that she falsely confirmed the allegations because “It was very apparent to me that that was the only way I was going to get out of that room.”
Amber’s brother John Doggett expressed a similar sentiment.
“It was such a foreign concept to me to be hurt in any way from my parents that I didn’t even have the words to tell them [polisie] how stupid that idea was,” hy het gesê. “They were asking me things, using terminology that I wasn’t familiar with. I was really confused, really scared.”
