BETH HOLLOWAY TWITTY: Well, we knew it was real chaotic when they were leaving Carlos and Charlie`s. I wasn`t directly involved in any of them; I don`t know the facts, nor do I know the law in these respective states. There was less than a 2 percent rate of recidivism. You can`t say, if your kid was a victim, hell hath no fury, but, on the other hand, let`s give them treatment and let them walk the streets. HERSHMAN: What I want is that, if somebody does something to one of my children, I would not sit in judgment. Now, everybody knows in the teaching profession that adolescents are confused, vulnerable, and easily impressed. And for a 44-year-old man, a teacher with the kind of experience this person has, to take advantage of a 16-year-old and say it`s OK because he`s almost 17 is totally wrong and a slap in the face of every teacher that works.I mean, it was a mass exodus, and they were all climbing into cars, cabs, trying to get rides back to the Holiday Inn. If I`d have that moment back, I would have made sure she got back to her hotel safely, but I can`t -- I can`t change that now. I do know the law in my own state, however, and there`s a psychosexual deviancy program which has had less than a 2 percent rate of recidivism. And all of these people, under new legislation that`s pending, would be looking at 25 years at a horrific expense to the citizens of this state. And if anybody ever did anything to one of my kids, God forbid, I don`t think the police would have a chance to get to them. I would have somebody wearing a black robe who would follow the law... (COMMERCIAL BREAK) (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We were actually talking about it at work this morning. It seems like a really serious crime with a pretty small consequence.And you know, I know they had -- you know, they had been drinking. It didn`t seem -- of course, now I look back at it, and I think, Oh, (DELETED) I`m an (DELETED). (END VIDEO CLIP) GRACE: Well, actually -- to Natalee`s mother, joining us, Beth Twitty -- there is something he could do now. DAVE HOLLOWAY, NATALEE`S FATHER: I understand he`s in Holland, going to college. I think, as a public, what we need to do is weigh our thirst to punish these people versus the expense in punishing them, as opposed to letting them stay in the community where they won`t re-offend. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I was dismayed to see that someone who had committed such a heinous crime against a young child would be given less of a prison sentence than, for instance, someone who got a second term DWI. We let these people out constantly, and everyone talks about therapy and, if they come up with something, I`d really like to see it.I mean, we already had -- we already knew full well that -- you know, the condition that Natalee was in when she left Carlos and Charlie`s. If it`s anything, she was probably more, you know, upset that I -- that I -- that I was leaving her there and -- I don`t know what reaction she had. At the time, I didn`t -- I didn`t feel it was a bad idea. Haven`t police just invited him and the two Kalpoe brothers back in to speak to them, and the three of them refused to speak to police just recently? You know, they can be reinterrogated at any time, and it`s not by invitation. GRACE: What`s your reaction to the fact that the Aruban authorities tried to bring these three back in for questioning, and they refused to come in, and authorities basically said, Oh, OK. HOLLOWAY: Well the prosecutor was told not to talk to the press, and it seemed like Steve Cohen knew all the answers and knew more than -- about the investigation than we did. (END VIDEO CLIP) GRACE: Vermont Judge Edward Cashman is having a rehearing, kind of like a redo -- we don`t have that in criminal law -- this coming Thursday after he sentenced a guilty, pled guilty, convicted child molester to 60 days behind bars, 60 days behind bars, after sodomizing a 5-year-old girl repeatedly. But the Catholic Church spent millions of dollars on therapy for their priest pedophiles, and that doesn`t seem to be going very well, to put it mildly.She said that in a still photo Beth looked really remarkable but on tv she didn't look that different. Even with the hair that was blowing and the sweaty faces from the humidy, she definately looked like she had something done.I don't think they'll ever find an answer to what happen to her daughter.I think those kids took her out to sea and dumped her body. Return to Transcripts main page NANCY GRACE Aruban Investigators Travel to Alabama to Interview 21 Friends with Natalee the Night she Went Missing on her High School Senior Trip to Aruba Nearly a Year Ago.
HAROLD COPUS, FORMER FBI AGENT: You know, I don`t think there`s any way we can tell that. Had they gone to the -- and impounded that car that day -- the FBI told us there was blood all in the car. (END VIDEO CLIP) GRACE: Tonight, stunning new developments in the search for an American girl, Natalee Holloway. I mean, after the month of December, it was just horrible, what Steve Cohen put the family through. He`s a spokesman that represents the island of Aruba. And I mean, it was just absolute inhumane, how we were treated that month. Beth, do you get the sense that investigators are now trying to tie up loose ends, wrap up the case in order to press charges? They couldn`t make it." Then he wants the kid to take his shirt off. I mean, and that`s why, when you look at the statutory rape in conjunction with the possession of child porn, the enticing of an individual, as well as the dissemination of the nude pictures... Take a look at 4-year-old Cermen Toney, last seen, East St. And if they`re not doing their job, get rid of them. GRACE: Alison, when you were a child and you were molested, has it haunted you, in the sense that you felt no one was there to help you? And all of these predators tell these children we`re hearing about in these cases the same things I was told, that no one will believe you, and that the predator has ultimate power. I hope to see you right here tomorrow night, sharp Eastern. It`s now to say to these guys, We`re going to bring you back in, let`s talk to you one more time, and you cannot escape the questions, the hardball questions that need to be asked. In a stunning development, Aruban authorities are now traveling to the U. to requestion and question initially many of the young students that were there with Natalee the night she went missing. BETH HOLLOWAY TWITTY: Well, I just can`t imagine subjecting these young adults to this, as you say, almost a year later, I mean, or eight months later. Most of the onlookers were related to a young girl who was repeatedly raped by 34-year-old Mark Hulett of Williston. And it`s -- I mean, it`s so exasperating, because it seems as if they`re just suspending what the law states and going out on their own because they don`t like the way the system works. GRACE: Well, since they said no, they`re not coming in, I don`t think there`s going to be any hardball questions. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) VAN DER SLOOT: She had a lot to drink at Carlos and Charlie`s. But I guess they came here to have a good time, to celebrate and (INAUDIBLE) their graduation also, and they might have all gone a little too far. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do you mean jelly shots with her? The sex abuse started when the girl was seven and ended when she was 10. Which bring us to the other judge in Wisconsin, Alan Bates. NANCY GRACE, HOST: Tonight: Is there finally a break in the Natalee Holloway case? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) BETH HOLLOWAY TWITTY, NATALEE HOLLOWAY`S MOTHER: I just know that we have -- we have to have answers. I had something to drink and she had something to drink. They`ve come to America to interview 21 people who were with her that night. That night, it was probably one big sea of inebriation. There`s some pressure -- I think there`s pressure coming from somewhere, You better get this done, you better -- I mean, you`re telling me after all this time, suddenly, somebody comes forward with new information, I`ve got the thing that`s going to solve this? I mean, there`s just -- there`s pressure being put on this government to get it done, and hopefully, it`ll be the answer. But why, Beth, are they finally coming to Alabama to question all these kids that were there with Natalee when she disappeared?Aruban investigators travel to Alabama to interview 21 friends with Natalee the night she went missing off her high school senior trip to Aruba nearly a year ago. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Natalee was only with Joran towards the end of the night. GEORGE "JUG" TWITTY, NATALEE HOLLOWAY`S STEPFATHER: The reason there`s no evidence is because the people didn`t do the right thing in the beginning. PAT LALAMA, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER: Boy, I`ll tell you what. They`re going to be bringing in new kind of equipment so that they can go deeper into new areas. Even the cops down there admit there are inconsistencies in the stories of the witnesses. But why are Aruban officials just getting to the U. GRACE: I`m hearing in my ear we are now being joined by Natalee`s mother. BETH HOLLOWAY TWITTY: Nancy, I wish I could answer that.
