Convicted Grandpa Still Claims He is Innocent of Molestation
Betty says her life was turned upside down two years ago when her husband of 23 years, Bill, was falsely accused of molesting their then 5-year-old grandson — whom Bill can be heard calling “sexy butt” on home video. Betty claims the boy’s step-grandmother, Cindy, is jealous of her and Bill’s relationship and, out of revenge, coached the child to say Bill touched him inappropriately — all of which Cindy denies. Although Bill insists he is innocent, he ultimately agreed to plead no contest to two counts of felony child abuse and is now a registered child abuser. Dr. Phil sits down with Betty and Cindy in search of answers. Why does Cindy say she had no choice but to report the alleged abuse to authorities? And, how does she explain so-called inconsistencies in her police statements? Plus, see the video that Betty says was “the nail in Bill’s coffin,” although she insists it is not even remotely incriminating. Was Bill falsely accused? Don’t miss Part 2 tomorrow, when Bill speaks out — and offers to take a polygraph test. What will the results reveal? This program contains sexual content. Viewer discretion advised

Convicted Grandpa Accused of Molestation Finally Speaks Out
Dr. Phil introduces Bill, a grandfather who -- despite maintaining his innocence -- pleaded no contest to felony child abuse, stemming from accusations that two years ago he was inappropriate with his 5-year-old step-grandson. Bill shares his side of the story via satellite, due to travel restrictions from his probation, in an effort to clear his name. How does he explain home video in which he calls his step-grandson “sexy butt”? And, why did he choose a plea deal instead of a trial? Then, Bill claims a polygraph test the police gave him in connection with their investigation came back “inconclusive,” and he wants to take another to prove his innocence. When the results are revealed, will he like what he hears? Don’t miss the dramatic conclusion! This program contains sexual content. Viewer discretion advised
