The Legend of Robert Halsey.
Cheit, Ross E.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v9 n3-4 p37-52 2001
Examines the criminal conviction of Robert Halsey for sexually abusing two young boys on his school-van route near Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Based on a comprehensive examination of the trial transcript, suggests that the credulous acceptance of the "false conviction" legend about Robert Halsey provides a case study in the techniques and tactics used to minimize and deny sexual abuse.
