Severine Speaks

The Lowell Sun has published a rather lengthy letter which Severine Wamala sent to Sun court reporter Lisa Redmond. Here are a couple of excerpts:
What happened to innocent until proven guilty? America was founded on the premise of innocent until proven guilty. Those who are criticizing Dr. (Karla Brooks) Baehr and Lowell High School for hiring me need to get facts straight.

Being arrested does not mean one committed a crime. One can be arrested for a number of reasons. False charges is one of them. Thirteen years ago as claimed in the newspapers I was arrested numerous times for false charges. During the period 1992 to 1994, my ex-girlfriend filed 36 false charges in nine different Massachusetts courts....

This is for those who don't know me. I have never assaulted anyone sexually or otherwise. My record at Lowell High School for four years stands clean. Also my record in New England for six years as a premier chess organizer in hotels where there are a lot girls stands clean. I believe that all the girls that stand for the truth will come in full force to my defense. I am an innocent man falsely accused....
Read Severine Wamala's entire letter.

Update (10/31): The entire letter is no longer available online. In its place is an article by Lisa Redmond based on the letter's contents.
