Just Ask My Children based on Brenda and Scott Kniffen

The real case happened in 1982 when Alvin and Debbie Mccuan's daughters, as well as the Kniffens sons reported that they had been abused by Scott and Brenda Kniffen. The Kniffens were also accused of being part of a sex ring. No evidence of abuse had ever been found, but the Kniffens were still convicted and sentenced to 200 years in prison in 1984.

In 1996 the convictions against them were overturned and the Kniffens were released. The Kniffens were the subjects of a witch hunt brought on in part by the step grandmother of the Mccuans. There story is recounted in the documentary Witch hunt. See sidebar for the link as well as pics of the Kniffens.
