Retired Journalist, Lew Powell, exoneree Bob Kelly, his attorney, Mark Montgomery, as well as Jennifer Behrens from the Duke Law Library, join us to speak about the Little Rascals case that shook North Carolina with ultimately unsubstantiated accusations of toddlers and preschoolers being molested while at the daycare. It was one of multiple cases involving false allegations of child sexual abuse and Satanic rituals performed by daycare providers that swept the nation in the late 1980s and early 1990s.The Little Rascals Daycare Case Papers are now in the permanent collection of the J. Michael Goodson Law Library. Attendees will have the opportunity to look at some of the items included in the archive. Food will be provided. Sponsored by the Innocence Project.
