I totally agree with Peter Sirois (letter, July 1). I have been following the Dennis Dechaine case for more than 20 years and have saved most of newspaper clippings.

I believe him to be innocent. Most people, if they were guilty, would give up trying to prove themselves innocent after all this time. Why won’t they give Dechaine a chance to prove it? What are they hiding?

God will be their judge, and their punishment will be worse than that handed down by any court judge.
