Teacher sues ex-wife for false claims of sex abuse

8-23-2006 Michigan:

.An Eastpointe school teacher has sued his ex-wife for her false accusations to police that he sexually molested their son and her son. Jeffrey Edwards, 33, filed a lawsuit in Macomb Circuit Court on Friday, saying his former wife, Muingo Muthui-Edwards, slandered him and deliberately inflicted emotional distress on him by telling police and social service agencies here and in Pennsylvania that he molested the two boys, aged 3 and 6.

Eastpointe police and social service officials in the two states have determined that the assaults never occurred and have cleared Edwards of any wrongdoing. Edwards told The Macomb Daily on Monday that he filed the lawsuit because of the toll the made-up accusations have taken on him.

"I've spent countless hours and money defending my reputation," Edwards said. "This has been a nightmare, an atrocity." The couple, whose divorce was finalized in April after 13 months of marriage, are mired in a custody battle over their son. Muthui-Edwards, who moved to northeast Pennsylvania to live near her parents after the divorce, also has another son from a prior relationship. ..more.. : by Jameson Cook, Macomb Daily Staff Writer
