Falsely Accused

Below is a synopsis of the book:

In September 2006, Cyndi Marchbanks, an intelligent and attractive 22 year old woman, was accused of murdering Amber Robey and her unborn child. Despite overwhelming evidence that she acted in self-defense, Cyndi was charged with two counts of murder, death or injury to a child inutero, and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a violent crime. If convicted, she would have to spend a minimum of 100 years in prison with no chance for parole.

Cyndi became the focal point of a media feeding frenzy accompanying the high-profile murder case. In the eyes of many people in Anderson, South Carolina, it transformed the demure and relatively unknown young woman into a notorious celebrity, a hideous monster, the cold-blooded killer of a mother and her unborn child.

Falsely Accused is a gripping account of a travesty of justice. An overzealous prosecutor who was seeking re-election completely ignored the evidence for self-defense and the conclusions of the state’s own forensic scientist to pursue a conviction. To make her case, the prosecutor latched onto contradictory statements provided by the victim’s boyfriend who did not witness the shooting.

For almost 14 months, Cyndi Marchbanks and her entire family had to live with the paralyzing fear that Cyndi might spend the rest of her life in prison. The jury for Cyndi’s trial in October 2007 saw through the prosecutor’s deception and decided Cyndi was not guilty in less than 2 hours.

This is a true story about Almighty God intervening on behalf of one of His children. It depicts a Christian family turning to God for help during a horrific 14 month ordeal; it reveals a loving God drawing a wandering child back to Him in the midst of harrowing circumstances; and it portrays God taking steps to restore Cyndi Marchbanks’ reputation after it had been dragged through the mud by a fanatical prosecutor on a mission to win a high profile murder trial.

I need to give you a warning.  There is some foul language in this book that many of you will find offensive.  It’s not gratuitous.  They’re the words that were actually used, and I didn’t try to sanitize the story for sensitive ears.

It’s a sad commentary on our times, but the gutter language I’ve let in, as revolting as it is, isn’t unfamiliar to you or to your children.  You hear it at school, on the streets, on television, and in movie theaters.  If you own a satellite radio, you hear it there as well.  It also contains gruesome details of a bloody shooting.  That, too, couldn’t be avoided.

This is a book that you and your children need to read.  Don’t let the language and the gory details stop you from recommending it to them.

If You Voted for Obama in 2008 to Prove You’re Not a Racist, You Need to Vote for Someone Else in 2012 to Prove You’re Not an Idiot explains why voters in the United States need to elect someone besides Barack Obama to lead them.  Whoever is elected President of the United States in 2012 will have to contend with the monumental problems that Obama’s misguided policies have caused both at home and abroad.  One thing is certain, though.  It should not be Barack Obama.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.

From the economy to scandal laden stimulus initiatives to favoritism toward unions at the expense of everyone else to foreign policy to radical Islam to the treatment of Israel to Obamacare to green energy scams to Gunwalker (a.k.a., Fast and Furious), President Obama has proven over and over again that he isn’t made of presidential timber.  Even more, his adolescent tendencies prove that he doesn’t have presidential temperament.

In a nutshell, electing Barack Obama to serve as President of the United States in 2008 was a terrible mistake—one that needs to be rectified in the 2012 presidential election.
