Accusations of Molestation
What happens when family members take sides… against each other? Pam and her husband, Steve, have been fighting for five years over whether or not his son, Steven Jr., molested her granddaughter, Julia. They say they’re headed to divorce court if they can’t get to the bottom of this. Pam’s daughter, Tashika, is convinced something happened to her daughter, and she says it’s tearing her whole family apart. Steven Jr. maintains his innocence and doesn’t understand why his family is turning their backs on him.
Sequestered backstage for the first part of the show, Steven Jr. joins Dr. Phil to share his side of the story. Why does he adamantly say he wants his father out of his life for good?

Steven Jr. offers to take a polygraph exam to show his family, once and for all, that he didn’t commit a crime.
Defending His Son
Steven Jr. has his theories about why these allegations have plagued him for so long, and says he wants his father out of his life. Steve says he’s the only person who has stood by his son and can’t understand why Steven Jr. wants to end their relationship.
