Medical Evidence Supports the Innocence of Dr. Malachi Z. York
There is one very important aspect the Prosecutors in the unjust case against Dr. Malachi Z. York would like to stay hidden from the public, it is the fact the the Medical Evidence Supports the Innocence of Dr. Malachi Z. York. Child molestation cases involve accusations made by the alleged victim and or guardians, which lead to an investigation and collection of supporting data to either confirm or refute the alleged claims. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Richard Sills stated in court that he received an anonymous letter allegedly accusing Dr. Malachi Z. York of child molestation in 1998. In the Union Recorder dated 5/16/2002. Sheriff Sills is quoted as saying: "The reason York was not arrested in 1998 when letters were first sent is simple, Sills said. There was not enough evidence to bring a conviction, he said". According to O.C.G.A. 19-7-5, any state government worker who is presented with an allegation of child abuse must immediately report it, and DFACS is to do a full-scale investigation on the allegations.
NONE OF THIS WAS DONE!!! IF THE LAWS WERE FOLLOWED THIS CASE WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSED 5 YEARS AGO.
This case is very unique in that there is no supporting physical exam evidence obtained concurrent with the alleged molestations. In the instant case there are 13 alleged victims, 5 of these alleged victims were kidnapped on May 8, 2002 and taken into DFACS custody and stated that they had never been molested, and some have been diagnosed with Sexually Transmitted Diseases, such as Herpes Simplex II and Chlamydia.
WHAT IS CHLAMYDIA?
According to the Center of Disease Control, Chlamydia is the most common STD in the United States. It has been labeled the "Silent Epidemic". An estimated 3 million people are newly infected each year. This disease goes without any symptoms, about 75% of all women and 50% of all men never have any symptoms of the disease. Chlamydia is most prevalent in women ages 15-24; this age group represents 70% of all the cases. All the alleged victims fall with in this age range. When Chlamydia is left untreated, it can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which can cause infertility in females, ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain. Infected women who deliver a baby may pass the infection on to the baby in the form of severe eye infections and pneumonia. It can be cured quickly with antibiotics. This diseases according to the CDC is an epidemic in their age range of 15-19. American Heritage Dictionary defines an epidemic as an outbreak of a contagious disease that spreads rapidly and widely.
There have been copies circulating of letters and diaries of the alleged victims that have exposed the group-sex lifestyle that these young people engaged in. This explains why all of them have these diseases. The prosecution in this case would like the public to think that these victims being infected with these diseases have something to do with them being allegedly sexually molested. Careful investigation and research says differently. After Dr. Malachi Z. York was arrested and taken into Federal Custody, Medical Doctors for the Government tested him on August 15, 2002. They took vials upon vials of his blood to be tested to see if they could prove that the alleged victims got these diseases from him to further substantiate their false accusations.
When the tests came back, the Federal Government was astonished. The results came back that Dr. Malachi Z. York tested NEGATIVE for Chlamydia, the disease that most the alleged victims were actively diagnosed with.
Four out of the five teenagers that were kidnapped, were diagnosed with this disease. The point is one of the five kidnapped had no signs of disease or molestation. This proves that there was no sexual contact with the defendant and the 5 alleged victims who were taken from the property or the 8 alleged victims who had left the property years ago. These five repeatedly claimed that no acts of molestation were committed against them. These statements are evident because the disease was not prevalent in Dr. York nor in one of the other alleged victims.
So the questions for the FBI should be, where did the alleged get these diseases?
According to the Rape Shield Act, the defense in criminal sexual charges cannot bring up the past sexual relationships of the alleged victims. Federal Rule 412 allows the defendant to enter into evidence any testimony or medical evidence that can prove that the Sexually Transmitted Diseases did not come from the defendant. This means your past sexual relationships will be used in court to prove Dr. Malachi Z. York's innocence. Well, maybe if they thoroughly read through the diary of one of the alleged victims, they would see the group sex lifestyle that these young people engaged in demonstrates high risk sexual behavior. They would see that the alleged victims were involved in sexual acts with each other, passing these undetected diseases to each other.
Yet, the prosecution has refused to see the evidence before them that Dr. Malachi Z. York was medically proven to be innocent of the charges. And it has been newly discovered by one of the 4 who diagnosed with an STD who was kidnapped off of the land by Sheriff Howard Richard Sills, recently got a physical, the results showed that she never had the disease that the DFACS case worker told her she tested positive for. The unique thing about Chlamydia is that once you are diagnosed with it, although the symptoms are gone due to drug treatment, the antibody will show up proving that the individual at one time had exposure to the organisms. So even if tested again, that antibody will show up proving that the individual at one time had the disease and was cured.
So this is a blatant injustice against these teenagers to tell them they have a disease that will stay with them for the rest of their life, to later find out they never had the disease at all.
In child molestation cases, in contrast to adult sexual assault cases, there is often the belief that a child would not lie or give false testimony. Psychological data supports the opinion that the method of questioning can lead to presumption of an accused person's guilt on the part of investigators. This case of alleged sexual abuse/molestation by Dr. Malachi Z. York is quite unique in the fact that there is essentially NO PHYSICAL EXAM DATA PROVIDED that coincides with any alleged abuse incidents.
The physical examinations were done several years after the last alleged molestations. When in this case an expert surgeon who operates on the genitourinary system, and often deals with vaginal/anal injuries, reported that it is common medical knowledge that the normal healing processes of the human body can often nearly eliminate the "obvious" evidence of prior injury if given sufficient time. Severe anal or genital injuries, such as anal sphincter lacerations would in most cases cause the victim to seek medical attention and thereby leave a past medical record of those injuries.
In Native American/African American people after a laceration the body often to heals itself by keloiding. According to the American Heritage Dictionary a Keloid is "a red, raised formation of fibrous scar tissue caused by excessive tissue repair in response to trauma or surgical incision." This is a genetic characteristic.
In many of the statements given to the FBI, the alleged victims graphically illustrate that they were injured and bleeding after the alleged abuse. Common reasons for individuals, seeking medical attention are pain and bleeding. The alleged victims state they were being sexually abused every day, all day, night and day, by an adult male. Now with that being said, they would have had injuries that would have lead to emergency medical treatment. When these alleged victims were examined by the GOVERNMENT'S OWN DOCTORS, they had no signs of scars from any anal or vaginal penetration. They had no signs of anal sexual intercourse at all. NO SCARS! NO INJURIES!, NO SUPPORTING MEDICAL EVIDENCE! And the Prosecutors knew this back as early as August of last year when all the test results came back. MEDICAL RECORDS DON'T LIE! This is the evidence that Prosecutors were wanting to block. They didn't want the public to know that:
1. They have no physical evidence to support the charges; No video tapes, No pictures;
2. They have no medical evidence to support the charges
3. All they have is triple hearsay.
This strategy will not stand up in court.
There is also another element they would like the public to not be aware of, and that is that Dr. Malachi Z. York is a 60-year old man suffering from Acute Hereditary Angioedema. Acute according to American Heritage Dictionary means; "having a rapid onset and following a short but severe course: acute disease." Herediatary Angioedema is a rare and serious genetic condition occurring in about 1/10,000 - 1/50,000 individuals.
The disease is characterized by episodes of edema (swelling) in body parts, mostly notably the hands, feet, fact, and airway passages. In addition, patients often have bouts of excruciating abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting that is caused by swelling in the intestinal wall. These attacks occur spontaneously due to stress and anxiety. Dr. Malachi Z. York was diagnosed with Acute Hereditry Angioedema in 1999. He had been having attacks since as early as 1997, but the condition went undiagnosed. During this time period, he was having 4-6 attacks per week. The adverse side to this disease is that in males, it lowers the testosterone level considerably and replacement therapy is needed for normal sexual function. So again during this time period, Dr. Malachi Z. York was suffering from a life threatening disease that left it virtually impossible for him to be engaging in all day, everyday sexual abuse that these alleged victims are accusing him of. The medical evidence supports Dr. Malachi Z. York's innocence.
The Prosecution would also like to hide the fact that immediately after May 8, 2002, OVER 40 CHILDREN, from infants to teenagers, that lived on the Shady Dale Rd. property were taken to get physical examinations by an independent Doctor, Dr. Sapp of Macon Georgia., who found NONE!!! NOT ONE!!! of the children to be sexually abused. In fact, the Doctor stated that these were the healthiest children he had examined. These are the details they try to hide.
These young children were forced to undergo hours of humiliating questions to determine if they had been abused. These psychologists showed naked pictures to children as young as 4 years old and then asked them to draw their body and their private parts. They were asked if they were ever brutally beaten, have they ever seen their parents naked, etc. Dr. Malachi Z. York's own defense attorneys hired these doctors. And even after the leading questions and hopes to false place memories into young children's minds, not one child was found to have been sexually abused. The only thing the Prosecution has to defend on is a bunch of lying teenagers who one by one are beginning to realize that what they have made is a big mistake and are coming clean about the lies and the conspiracy. Dr. Malachi Z. York will be fully exonerated of all these charges!
