Eberle P. and S.
Abuse of Innocence
Prometheus Press (1993)
The book is highly critical of the state's handling of the
case [McMartin, Manhattan Beach, CA] and the media coverage of it. It
provides many first hand accounts of the trial and quotes from court
records (the authors attended it). My problem with the book is it
somewhat sensationalized and the authors seem to give credence to an
anti establishment conspiracy theory that the government and the media
are creating a massive nationwide witchhunt. Paul and Shirley Eberle
are alleged to have been involved in the production of pornographic
literature which included child pornography in the mid 1970's (SEE 88
Mich. L. Rev. 1709, n.27 (1990)).
