FALLS CHURCH, Va. - It is a shocking arrest in Falls Church. Michael Gardner, the husband of City Council Member and former Mayor Robin Gardner, was arrested for incidents police say happened at the family home.

The City of Falls Church issued a statement saying that Michael Gardner was arrested and charged with two felony counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of object sexual penetration.

Falls Church authorities were contacted by the female victims who were at home and told officers that Gardner had inappropriate psychical contact with them. The statement says after police interviewed the victims who were at home, they obtained search warrants for DNA.

FOX 5 attempted to speak with someone at the Gardner home, but no one came to the door. Our phone call to the home was not returned.

Robin Gardner has been on the Falls Church Council since 2000. She served as Mayor of Falls Church from 2006 to 2010.

Michael Gardner is well known in the community. He writes a column for the Falls Church News-Press and is the former Chairman of the Falls Church City Democratic Committee.

No object, he did it with his mental powers - thus the statement that "Gardner had inappropriate psychical contact".

1st Court Date Set July 12 in Sexual Abuse Case Vs. Michael Gardner
By Nicholas F. Benton
Wednesday, June 29 2011 07:01:40 PM
http://www.fcnp.com/news/9573-1st-court-date-set-july-12-in-sexual-abuse-case-vs-michael-gardner.html

A City of Falls Church spokesperson confirmed to the News-Press Wednesday afternoon that City resident and prominent citizen-activist Michael A. Gardner is due in a Falls Church courtroom at City Hall July 12 to face charges of sexual assaulting three young girls in alleged incidents at his home on two separate occasions earlier this month.

Gardner's arrest last week sparked regional and national coverage, given his role in the community as husband of former mayor and current City Council member Robin Gardner, and as a past chair of the City's Democratic Committee, and high-profile blogger and local-issues columnist who wrote in the News-Press. It also provoked a firestorm of mostly angry reactions on websites reporting the arrest, including at the News-Press' website, FCNP.com.

However, Gardner's attorney, former Falls Church Mayor Brian O'Connor, insisted in an interview with the News-Press on his client's innocence, saying Gardner "has categorically denied any criminal behavior and would never knowingly harm any child." He added that Gardner's wife "is very supportive of Mike." Gardner pleaded not guilty to all charges last Thursday, and has been released on $50,000 bond.

Gardner's arrest took place at 5:24 p.m. Wednesday, June 22, four days after the second of two alleged assault incidents, on two counts of sexual assault and one count of object sexual penetration of minors. A press release detailing the charges and identifying Garder was issued by the Falls Church City Hall Office of Communications within minutes of his arrest. O'Connor said he was first contacted by Gardner on Monday, June 20.

Gardner, who according to police records reported by the Associated Press, was charged with sexually abusing three girls, two of whom, ages 9 and 10, attended a birthday slumber party for his 10-year-old daughter Saturday night and a third, also under age 13, in a separate incident earlier.

He is slated to appear in Juvenile Domestic Relations Court in Falls Church June 12, but in keeping with all proceedings in that court, it will not be open to the public. The prosecution, although under the auspices of the Arlington Circuit Court, will be conducted by Nicole Wittman, a prosecutor from Loudoun County.

According to unofficial reports, Arlington County Attorney Dick Trodden requested of his Loudoun counterpart that Loudoun handle the prosecution because of the long history of Gardner's political associations with the county attorneys offices of both Arlington and Fairfax County.

O'Connor told the News-Press in a telephone interview yesterday that he still has not been able to sit down with the prosecution to assess the evidence. "This is a devastating accusation to have, and it has been a nightmare to this point for Mike, Robin and their kids," O'Connor said. "My advice has been to try to live as normally as they can."

The family remains in the area, although not at their Ellison Street home. Robin Gardner did not attend this Monday's City Council meeting, as of press time she had not replied to a written inquiry from the News-Press about her plans to attend future meetings.

O'Connor, in comments to the News-Press last week, said his client "is someone who has never had a whiff of scandal" around him, and "has an excellent reputation in the community for his character."

"We will deal with the facts as they unfold," he said. There is no indication, he said, that the court's request for a DNA sample from Gardner had anything to do with a suggestion of actual sexual contact. He said that Gardner "is determined to fight this case." Said O'Connor, "I am going to help this man."

The Gardners are the parents of twins, one male and one female.

According to reports, shortly after the alleged incident Saturday night, June 18, the nine-year-old girl was taken to a sexual-assault nurse specialist at the Inova Fairfax Hospital where an examination was performed.

According to the City of Falls Church, police conducted a number of follow-up interviews with the alleged victims and others attending the slumber party, and a saliva sample for purposes of DNA testing was taken from Gardner.

Interviews with neighbors to the Gardners indicated shock but a willingness to presume innocence until proven guilty. They also expressed concern for the fallout on Robin Gardner's political career in the City. She served as mayor from 2006 to 2010 and continues as a member of the Council.

The Public Information Office of the City of Falls Church issued a media advisory tonight in anticipation of what could be a major descent of regional media on the Falls Church City Hall tomorrow, location of the preliminary hearing in the case involving two felony charges of aggravated sexual battery and one count of object sexual penetration of minors against F.C. City resident and political activist Michael Gardner. The F.C.General District Court will convene in the Council chambers at City Hall tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, and Gardner, 47, is slated to appear at 11:45 a.m.

Barbara Gordon, the Director of Communications for Falls Church, issued a media advisory tonight indicating that a tent will be set up outside the courtroom to accommodate the press, and that the decision on whether the courtroom will be open for the press won't be made by the court until tomorrow.

In a new development, Gardner's initial attorney, former Falls Church mayor Brian O'Connor, told the News-Press today that he no longer represents Gardner, and that the case has been taken over by Peter Greenspun, of the Fairfax County law firm of Greenspun, Shapiro, Davis and Leary, the attorney involved in the defense of the D.C.-area sniper suspects and who is routinely ranked among the best lawyers in Virginia and the Washington, D.C. region.

12:49 p.m.

Judge Esther Wiggins ordered the courtroom cleared at about 12:30 this afternoon. Michael A. Gardner arrived with his wife and current City Council member, Robin, and his attorney.

The judge ordered the court closed because children witnesses are supposed to speak during this preliminary hearing.

Gardner, who served as chairman of the Falls Church City Democratic Committee from 2006 to 2007, was charged with sexual assault against two juvenile females, according to records from Arlington Circuit Court following an alleged sleepover at his home on June 18. Arlington County Sheriff Chief Deputy Paul Larson said Gardner was released from the Arlington County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond. The alleged victims, 10 and 9-years-old, identified Gardner as the person who sexually assaulted them in the basement of his Falls Church home during an alleged sleepover for Gardner’s daughter, according to court records. City of Falls Church Police charged Gardner on June 22.

This creep may well be innocent, so I will keep my pitchfork down for now, but he is a sickly looking fucker in the picture. Maybe he has alcohol issues or something.

If Esther Wiggins is the judge presiding over his case, I feel sorry for him at sentencing. She was supposed to have had a serious hard-on for domestic and tot-tapping cases while an asst. Comm.Atty in Arlington. Good for her.

I mentioned this before and I will say it again and add the picture below which was taken in the Gardner home in City of FC. Gardners wife is pictured second from the left and the woman on the second from the right is Theo Stamos, another Arlington assistant Comm. Atty. who is running to be Comm. Atty in Arlington County.

She will likely win the election, being a Democrat in Arlington and actually a pretty competent and reasonable prosecutor from what I remember of the times I spent in the courthouse years ago. I am wondering already if she will be the prosecutor assigned to this case? It would really be something if she had to send her friends hubby down the road for 15 years.

At the Council chambers of the Falls Church City Hall, regularly used for district court matters on weekdays, Arlington Circuit Court Judge Esther Wiggins denied petitions today from defendant Michael Gardner for opportunities to visit with his two children, following graphic testimony by three preteen alleged victims that Gardner has been charged with sexually abusing.

Judge Wiggins ruled at today's preliminary hearing that probable cause exists for taking the case to trial, scheduled to begin with an arraignment in the Arlington Circuit Court next week, on July 21 at 9:30 a.m.

Gardner is charged with committing two felony acts of aggravated sexual battery and one act of object sexual penetration. He has pleaded not guilty.

After initially closing the courtroom to all but the victims, their parents, social workers, Gardner's wife, Falls Church City Council member Robin Gardner, and legal counsel, Judge Wiggins consulted with the victims and their families, and decided to open the court to reporters.

Seated next to their parents, each child was brought to the witness stand, asked to identify Gardner in the courtroom, and to describe the events that took place on the nights they claim they were assaulted. They responded to questions from prosecutor Nicole Wittman, Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney for Loudoun County, and Gardner's attorney Peter Greenspun.

Two victims said they were sleeping at the Gardner household in a basement on June 18 when Gardner repeatedly fondled them. A third victim,who slept over in Gardner's daughter's room on June 16, said Gardner repeatedly touched her beneath her clothing. She claimed that he whispered to her, asking if it "felt good."

After Wiggins ruled that Gardner's case would continue to circuit court, Greenspun asked if Gardner could be permitted to see his twin children with adult supervision. Wiggins denied the request. Greenspun again requested that Gardner be able to see his children with adult supervision in public areas, but again Wiggins denied the request.

Yesterday, Gardner's first attorney, former Falls Church Mayor Brian O'Connor told the News-Press that he remains convinced of Gardner's innocence. Gardner remains free on bond.

Robin Gardner came in for the hearing from a location in New Jersey where she is staying with her children. She was not present at last night's Falls Church City Council meeting, held in the same chamber as today's hearing.

to the ppl who keep saying he's innocent - I want to know how you can think that is the case? Do you SERIOUSLY believe those two little girls are lying/mistaken about what they say occurred?

I want to know what you think could be going on if you really think he is truly innocent of the charges, what plausible scenario could make this change of events happen.

Not saying he should be strung up (yet) - I'm just curious as to what scenarios ppl who claim his innocence believe happened

Even when we do, and he is found guilty, the sentence he receives will be far less than what he deserves. Anything less than castration is a travesty of justice.

Feedhisballs2 - I agree 100%. Any sick bastard that is turned on by 10 year old kids cannot be cured and should be jailed for a very long time or castrated.

Gardner Case Referred to Arlington Grand Jury
By GEORGE BROMLEY
Falls Church Times Staff
July 12, 2011
http://fallschurchtimes.com/29725/gardner-case-referred-to-arlington-grand-jury/

Michael Gardner, facing charges of sexual abuse involving three young girls, appeared today for a preliminary hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. After listening to explicit testimony from each girl, Judge Esther Wiggins declared she had found probable cause and referred the case to the Grand Jury of the Arlington Circuit Court.

The Grand Jury will convene on Thursday, July 21 and may hand down an indictment. Mr. Gardner has been charged with aggravated sexual battery and object sexual penetration. Two of the girls are 10 years old and one is 9.

Judge Wiggins initially closed the Court to all but those directly involved in the case and the girls’ parents. However, after 40 minutes she reversed her ruling and opened the courtroom to reporters and spectators.

The girls, all of whom testified separately, were first questioned by prosecutor Nicole Wittman. She asked relatively few questions, first requesting each girl to identify Mr. Gardner and then to describe the nature of the alleged abuse.

Defense counsel Peter Greenspun then cross-examined each girl, asking many more questions and meeting occasional objections from Ms. Wittman, which Judge Wiggins generally sustained. Each girl’s parents accompanied them to the witness stand, sitting directly to their left. All three girls maintained their composure throughout the questioning.

One girl recounted two incidents, several minutes apart. During his cross-examination Mr. Greenspun sought to determine the length of each by timing the girl’s recollection, first saying “start” and then waiting until the witness said “stop.” Times of 19 and 24 seconds were recorded.

Another girl testified that the accused asked her “Did that feel good.” She said she responded “No.”

The events at issue occurred on the night of June 18, when two of the girls attended a slumber party at the Gardner home, and on the night of June 16, when the third girl slept over at the house. Mr. Gardner was arrested on June 22 and was released the following day on $50,000 bond.

At the close of the hearing Mr. Greenspun asked that the Court allow Mr. Gardner to see his two children, a restriction imposed on the condition of his bond. However, Judge Wiggins refused the request, saying she would rather err on the side of caution.

Prior to the hearing, Mr. Gardner sat with his wife Robin and his attorney. However, she did not accompany her husband, either when he entered City Hall or when he left.

Mr. Greenspun, who has replaced Brian O’Connor as Mr. Gardner’s counsel, is a well-known criminal defense attorney. Previous clients have included D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad and famed sportscaster Marv Albert.

The Gardner case has attracted considerable attention in the local news media. Reporters from Falls Church Patch, the News-Press, and three area television stations attended today’s hearing.

I am a personal friend of Michael Gardner we went to george mason university together where he served as student government president and I was on the senate. Michael is a man who is of integrity and virtue he loves his family and his community and I find it difficult to believe such allegations in reference to him.
I say he is innocent until proven guilty. It seems to me this could be a gross exaggeration of some sort or conspiracy or imagination on the part of the children involved. Michael was an integral part of the falls church community who cared and I believe he deserves more support and the benefit of the doubt until there is some real definitive evidence which can prove otherwise.

While I agree with Lydia that Mike is innocent until proven guilty, we need to support the victims and their families during this ordeal. We also need to remember that Robin and her children are victims of this too. They didn’t do anything to deserve the hell they must be living through.

It is rather shocking to read Lydia’s attempt to exonerate Michael Gardner. Does she think these girls conspired against him and made this up? Just because you think you know someone well does not mean that such person is incapable of committing a crime against a child. I am sure most people would say the same thing about all those priests–Oh, they were such upstanding Christians! They would never commit such a heinous crime. What about Dr. Earl Bradley from Delaware? The pediatrician who molested more than 200 kids before being arrested? I am sure people thought he was a caring and excellent pediatrician. Do people think that child molesters act a certain way? Do they have a certain look, where you can tell that the person is a child molester? For Lydia to accuse three, different girls of making up a story tells me she has no credibility. Yes, let’s dismiss detailed descriptions of what three, different people say. When multiple people provide similar accounts–you have to wonder why someone would doubt these statements.

Yes, innocent until proven guilty. BUT, the testimony thus far, and I suspect the DNA evidence, is quite persuasive. Keep in mind the judge said no to visiting his own children. If this was one victim, then yes, maybe we should be suspicious. But this was multiple victims. It would be quite a stretch, if not ridiculous, to claim some sort of conspiracy for political or other reasons. Again, do we really think this some sort of vast right-wing, anti-CBC conspiracy?

If Mr. Gardner is guilty which he knows (unless he is simply mentally incompent and surely needs help), he needs to take a plea deal, take a lengthy prison sentence, and spare the victims and City from further heartache, cost, and get this behind everyone. If not, what is the strategy, put the victims on trial claiming this was some sort of bizarre consensual thing….claiming some sort of “misundertanding”… get real. Oh yea, don’t forget about posssibility of putting the City of Falls Church Police on trial too for their investigative process. Come on folks – - get out of denial mode. Yes, I hate to break the news to some, but yes, this can happen in the City of Falls Church.

Note that Brian O’Connor, former Mayor and Mr. Gardner’s attorney has withdrawn from the case. Besides this case probably being above his pay-grade, he may have lost confidence in his client when he looked at the case further and said I’m out of here.

If he is guilty of the horrid crime I do hope he cops a plea in order to save not only the abused children the trial process, but also his own family. He could impoverish his own wife and children with a serious defense. Again, if he is guilty and I certainly don’t know — only he and the girls really know, that is until or unless the DNA evidence convicts him.

Ugly stuff, this.

Another point is let’s get out of this mode of wringing our hands about lost political careers. Not sure how effective or influential either of the Garders were…….but that should be the least of our concerns….plus no one is that important and everyone can be replaced.

Just curious and maybe I missed it….has it been reported where Mrs. Gardner was at the time of the incidents?

Regarding Lydia’s comment and the need for “real, definitive evidence”: child molesters rarely videotape themselves and there may not be any DNA evidence here. Three separate girls went independently to their parents and separately to the authorities to report their stories. Yes, I uphold the principle of innocent until proven guilty but I do hope that this new attorney is not allowed to pit his vast legal experience against three ten year old girls.

False accusations by children is actually more common than most people would think. I am a defense attorney and former prosecutor and I can tell you that many innocent people are accused on a daily basis- of horrific crimes. However, the general public only knows what they see on TV. Just because a judge denied to modify conditions of bail so Mr. Gardner could see his children does not mean anything. It only means this is a highly publicized case and the Judge is protecting herself. I know that may be a hard pill to swallow for some people but its the truth. People jumping to conclusions based on Mr. Gardner’s guilt should be ashamed of themselves. Just because they took DNA evidence means nothing either. In fact, the reason the prosecution has not released results of the DNA test actually speak more to Gardner’s innocence than to his guilt. If any of you have any doubts take a look at a case called Norfolk 4. Four people were wrongly convicted of a brutal rape….despite the fact that the prosecution already had a suspect in custody and who’s DNA matched.

Oh brother. *raises hand* I am jumping to conclusions. I should be ashamed of myself? Give me a break. I will make whatever judgments I see fit based on the facts I read/hear/see. I am also willing to change my mind if I read/hear/see more facts. I think this is human nature. I am a lawyer as well, Mr. Anonymous, and I have no problem with this tactic that I take. When Mike was walking with his attorney on the TV footage, he would not look up at the camera. To me, that exuded guilt. Could I be wrong? Sure, but I think I have a good sense of body language. If someone is wrongfully accused, they tend to WANT people to see them so that they can prove that these allegations are bogus. I think he is guilty, but I’ll wait and see what additional facts come to light.

How many nine year old girls could make up a story of sexual abuse. What was described is not something a nine year old would even know about.

If the three stories sound the same and it all happened when they were sleeping over at his house he is in deep shit.

Plus he may have been abusing his daughter too.

Hello, out there ... unfortunately I'm deeply involved with this matter, which is dreadful,as I never thought I'd be going through something like this. I can appreciate all of the Gardner family's long-time friends and neighbors doing their best to support the family, particularly since their kids are not the victims in this case. Rest assured, there are many people who thought they knew the family and will always regret putting their trust in the defendant (and, by association, his wife).

As with many of you, I've been involved with the justice/court system for many years and still believe in "innocent until proven guilty" -- the system worked the way it's supposed to for Casey Anthony, even though a lot of people are sure she's guilty. Over the years, one thing I've seen time and again is that the court system is about the law, not about justice. Hopefully justice will prevail here, but it's in Mr. Gardner's interest to fight this to the end, so I expect no reasonableness for the victims' sake.

I've read the various posts re: this matter, but I'm saddened to see some of the more argumentative comments (as opposed to straight opinions). Of course, the beauty of our country is that people can say whatever however, but it would be gratifying to the victims' families for comments to be made without getting personal. Not that I'm trying to curb anyone's liberties ...

There are a number of troubling details about this case, as with so many others, including how the defense will be coming at these young kids. My biggest disappointment, to date, is the manner in which the Falls Church paper has reported on the "story." I understand that Mr. Gardner has written for the paper, and that both he and his wife are deeply entrenched in the political scene. However, leaving out significant (unidentifying) details of the investigation that were available to them, softening the description of the specific allegations in court, and devoting more time/space to the judge's record than the testimony of the victims at the recent hearing, seems inequitable somehow.

Worse things happen to little kids every day and it really could have been much worse, but the victims and their families are going through a terrible ordeal as it is. The disgusting details will probably emerge at some point, but in the interest of fairness, it would be great to see Mr. and Mrs. Gardner's most ardent supporters express some degree of concern for the "alleged" victims, too -- even under their breath, as an afterthought maybe. Wishful thinking, I know.

His kids are victims too. We do not know if he has done this before or to his own daughter. You never really know someone.

To say worse things can happen to a little girl is stupid. I guess since he did not rape them it is OK what he did?

While I agree that any adult who molests children needs to be strung up, just because someone making an accusation is a child doesn't make the accusation automatically true.

The man is innocent until proven guilty, and if he truly believes himself to be innocent of the crime, then he owes it to NO ONE to just roll over and accept a plea bargain and conviction.

In my distant past, I was falsely accused of rape (not of a child, thank God). Evidence later exonerated me, but I lost many friends over it, especially due to my refusal to admit guilt (because I wasn't guilty).

After the evidence exonerated me and fingered the actual rapist, I went back to one such person and asked if they had anything they wanted to say to me. They did not. Total lack of remorse over a rush to judgement.

That's exactly what I'm seeing here.

What I'm also seeing, is that one person on here already indicated they will decline to use the professional services of someone holding an opinion they don't like. That is immature in the extreme, in the same way a while back of the lady who demanded child trick-or-treaters disclose who their parents voted for, and if she didn't like the answer, they didn't get candy.

WTF??

Sorry to have offended "worse things can happen?????". I tried to be very careful not to suggest that the plight of these victims was on par with those who have either lost their lives or suffered a violent attack. Apparently my lack of common sense got in the way. I'm not aware of anyone, including me, suggesting that the "alleged" activities were ok -- that's just an ignorant comment. It's insightful and informative responses such as these that keep the dialogue constructive ... thanks for sharing.

Gardner Indicted on Three Counts
By FALLS CHURCH TIMES STAFF

July 20, 2011

Michael Gardner has been indicted on two counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of object sexual penetration. The Grand Jury of the Arlington Circuit Court handed down the indictments on Monday, July 18.

Mr. Gardner is due in Court tomorrow morning. The judge will set a trial date at that time.


Wow - I dated Mike ( seriously) in high school) - I am shocked. I am praying for all those involved in this case - especially the sweet children (alleged victims and his own) that will be effected by this tragedy.

So...guilty unless proven innocent eh? And you missed the point. What if it does happen to Question, and she is wrong, and her husband is later proven innocent???

I know that if I were falsely accused of something heinous like this, and my wife didn't stand behind me, it would be over.

Bottom line, just because an accusation is made doesn't automatically make it true. Ask Sean Lannigan.

Maybe I'll just ask Gardner's victims. Yes, that is victims with an "s" as in they are plural.

And no, I did not miss the point.

Do you know what a "leading question" is? Do you know the type of questions untrained and undisciplined questioners ask? Do you know the ramifications of such questions when asking kids them?

Example: You are visibly upset. You are having ice cream with your kid to try to get through to her. You say "That's good, isn't it?". How do you think your kid will respond? Do you think your kid would DARE to say "No, I don't like it. I like more chocolate!". Really?

Example 2: You are visibly upset. YOu ask your kid "Did he touch you right here?". Your kid says "No." You ask again "Are you sure, dear. Are you sure he didn't touch you right here?".

Ad nauseum.

Parents and undisciplined other adults are death to real facts.

@guilty - um, yr example 1 makes no sense. why would you be "having ice cream with your kid to try to get through to her?" Why would you ask "That's good, isn't it?" in a visbly upset moment? I mean wouldnt you be more focused on calming yrself down from whatever it is that is making you upset? Either way, wouldnt you know what type of icecream yr kid liked?

example 2 : if you can compare a kid eating to a kid getting "touched"................then you gots the "issues", pedobear. Cause no adult is normally asking the question "Did he touch you right here?" unless there was a reason too - trained pros usually are involved in asking the kids about "example 2" level questions, such as in this current case

yr examples make as much sense as J.D. Walker & lessons for every guy posts up there - any guy can be left alone with a little kid as long as.............and pay attention now, cause this is the kicker here....... THE GUY DOESNT TRY TO MOLEST THE KID!! Little kids are not manipulative little liars so badly that the even sexual assualts. High school, yeah maybe - but little 10 yr olds, I DONT FUCKING THINK SO!

Michael Gardner Trial Delayed Until January 2012
By FALLS CHURCH TIMES STAFF
http://fallschurchtimes.com/30556/michael-gardner-trial-delayed-until-january-2012/

September 19, 2011

The trial of Michael Gardner has been delayed until January 23, 2012, according to a report by Channel 7 News. The continuance was granted this morning in Arlington Circuit Court.

Gardner was scheduled to face a jury trial beginning on October 3 for felony sexual abuse charges involving three young girls. Last month the Court granted a prosecution motion to try the charges together, rather than separately.

Gardner is accused of aggravated sexual battery and object sexual penetration. The events allegedly occured on the night of June 18, when two of the girls attended a slumber party at the Gardner family home, and on the night of June 16, when the third girl slept over at the house.

Gardner was arrested by Falls Church City police on June 22 and released the following day on $50,000 bond. He was indicted by the Grand Jury on July 18.

http://wusa9.com/news/article/170697/373/Sperm-Found-On-Girls-Pajamas-In-Child-Molestation-Case
7:55am Oct 12, 2011


ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA) - Lab tests which analyzed DNA from the alleged victims and suspect in a child molestation case show sperm was found on one of the little girl's pajama bottoms, according to Arlington County Court officials.

Because the lab results contain the names of the young victims, the court would not release those documents, but a deputy clerk of the court did read them WUSA's Peggy Fox.

In June of 2011, three little girls, two were ten years old and one was nine, accused their friend's father, Michael Gardner, of molesting them.

The girls told the court in a probably cause hearing that while they were at sleepovers at the Gardner's Falls Church house, Mr. Gardner opened their sleeping bags and touched their private parts. Charges include aggravated sexual battery and animate object penetration.

The lab tested several items including one of the girl's underpants where the scientists found a DNA profile foreign to the victim. That means someone else's DNA was found on the girl.

The lab found that Michael Gardner cannot be eliminated as the person who left that DNA. It also determined the odds of it being another Caucasian male, are one in 20.7 quadrillion.

Specifically, Gardner's DNA profile is 20.7 quadrillion times more probable than in a coincidental match with unrelated Caucasian.

In a sample from another girl's pajama bottoms, sperm was found in the internal crotch area and in a stain on the left leg.

Again, the lab found DNA results do not eliminate Michael Gardner for a match. In this case, the lab determined that the odds of it being another Caucasian male are one in 38- hundred.
Specifically, 3,860 times more probable than a coincidental match of an unrelated caucasian person.

Gardner was arrested by Falls Church City police on June 22 and was indicted by the Grand Jury on July 18. His trial has been delayed until January 23, 2012. The case has been moved from the small Falls Church court system to Arlington County.

DNA Evidence In Arlington Child Molestation Case
Monday, October 17th, 2011, 12:00pm


This story is updated with additional information from the Arlington County Circuit Court Clerk. Our earlier version did not include information that some of the DNA profiles from some of the samples did eliminate Michael A. Gardner as a contributor.



ARLINGTON COUNTY, Va. (WUSA) - In lab tests, which analyzed DNA from the alleged victims and suspect in a child molestation case, one of the substances found was sperm, according to Arlington County Court officials reading the results of lab tests.

Because the lab results contain the names of the young victims, the court would not release those documents, but both Arlington County Circuit Court Clerk Paul Ferguson and Deputy Clerk Nela Hargrove read them to WUSA's Peggy Fox.

In June of 2011, three little girls, two who were ten years old and one who was nine, accused their friend's father, Michael Gardner, of molesting them.

The girls told the court in a probable cause hearing that while they were at sleepovers at the Gardner's Falls Church house, Mr. Gardner opened their sleeping bags and touched their private parts. Charges include aggravated sexual battery and animate object penetration.

In the documents from the lab, Hargrove read that the lab received several items to examine:
Item # 1: The physical evidence recovery kits;
Item #4: an alleged victim's underpants;
Item #6: an alleged victim's pajama pants;
Item #7: another alleged victim's pajama pants;
Item #9: buccal (cheek) swab from Michael A. Gardner;
Item # 10: swab from another alleged victim.

Hargrove read that on Item 4, "A DNA profile foreign to the alleged victim was developed of interior crotch of the underpants and Michael Gardner cannot be eliminated as a contributor." Hargrove read "Michael Gardner's DNA profile is 20.7 quadrillion times more probable than in a coincidental match with an unrelated Caucasian."

An expert in forensic science explained that those numbers mean that the odds of the DNA profile matching to another Caucasian male, are one in 20.7 quadrillion.

Hargrove read that on Item 7, "spermatozoa were identified on a stained area on interior crotch and spermatozoa were identified in a stain on the exterior left leg and from front hem of pajama pants."

Hargrove read from the final portion under Item 7, "Based on these results, a match between the pajama pants, Item 7, and Michael A. Gardner, Item 9, is 3.86 thousand times more probable than a coincidental match to an unrelated Caucasian person."

Hargrove also read that Michael Gardner is eliminated as a contributor from some of the DNA profiles collected from Item 7, specifically, from "the sperm fraction from a representative sample of the stained area on the interior crotch of the pajama pants" and "the interior waistband of the pajama pants."

But also concerning Item 7, Hargrove read that according to a "a DNA mixture profile foreign to the victim developed from an exterior pelvic area of the pajama pants, Michael A. Gardner cannot be eliminated as a contributor."

In more detail, here is what Ferguson read on the findings of the sperm in Item 7:

"A DNA mixture profile foreign to victim was developed from the sperm fraction from a representative sample of the stained area on the interior crotch of the Pajama pants. Michael Gardner, the alleged victim and other alleged victim are eliminated as contributors to this foreign DNA profile. Due to the limited information obtained, the minor profile developed from this mixture is not suitable for comparison.

No DNA typing results were developed from the sperm fraction of the stain on the exterior left leg from hem and a DNA profile of no value was developed from the non-sperm fraction of this sample. Due to the limited information obtained, this profile is not suitable for comparison.

A DNA a profile of limited value and foreign to alleged victim was developed from a portion of the interior waistband of the pjs pants. Michael A Gardner victim and victim are eliminated as contributors of this foreign DNA profile. This profile may be suitable for comparison. Due to the limited information obtained, it is not suitable for searching again the VA DNA data bank or submission to the national DNA data bank.
A DNA profile attributed to the alleged victim is also present in the sample ."

"A DNA mixture profile of limited value and foreign to alleged victim was developed from the exterior pelvic area of the pajama pants. Michael Gardner cannot be eliminated as a contributor as their foreign mixture profile. The alleged victim and the other alleged victim are eliminated to this foreign DNA mixture profile. A DNA profile attributed alleged victim is also present in this sample.

The statistical analysis regarding this DNA mixture profile will be the subject of a separate report Although suitable for comparison, due to the unknown number of potential contributors, and the complex nature of this mixture profile, it is not suitable for searching again the VA DNA databank or submission to the Nat. DNA databank. Additional DNA comparisons can be conducted following the submission of two buccal (Cheek) swabs from another person of interest to the lab."

Gardner was arrested by Falls Church City police on June 22 and was indicted by the Grand Jury on July 18. His trial has been delayed until January 23, 2012. The case has been moved from the small Falls Church court system to Arlington County.

Am I reading it correctly that the sperm on item 7 cannot be linked to Gardner? Does that mean there was another male involved?? WTF?

As I understand it, the DNA seems to be his, but has not been completely ruled out on Item #7.

"A DNA mixture profile of limited value and foreign to alleged victim was developed from the exterior pelvic area of the pajama pants. Michael Gardner cannot be eliminated as a contributor as their foreign mixture profile. The alleged victim and the other alleged victim are eliminated to this foreign DNA mixture profile. A DNA profile attributed alleged victim is also present in this sample.

The statistical analysis regarding this DNA mixture profile will be the subject of a separate report Although suitable for comparison, due to the unknown number of potential contributors, and the complex nature of this mixture profile, it is not suitable for searching again the VA DNA databank or submission to the Nat. DNA databank. Additional DNA comparisons can be conducted following the submission of two buccal (Cheek) swabs from another person of interest to the lab."

What is this "another person of interest"? If it was a sleepover, don't tell me there was yet another person there. If that's the case then this is even more horrible!

From the comments at http://fallschurchtimes.com/30925/new-development-in-michael-gardner-case/#comments:

"Does anyone know _for sure_ what changed about Mike’s parole agreement? I never saw Mike between June and September and never saw both family cars at the residence, but since September he has been regularly visiting his home for long periods of time. I reside next door so it’s difficult to not to notice when both the van and the Mercedes are in the drive. Without the community knowing the agreement we can’t alert authorities of violating activities…"

"Modified — he can see his kids provided wife with him."

from which I conclude he's out on bail and he wasn't allowed to see his own children in even a supervised situation until recently.

The Arlington Grand Jury has indicted Michael Gardner on a third count of aggravated sexual battery. The indictment was filed Monday and was the subject of a hearing today in Circuit Court.

Gardner was indicted in July on one count of object penetration and two counts of aggravated sexual battery involving three girls in two separate incidents at his home in June. The latest charge does not involve a fourth girl.

Trial on all counts is scheduled to begin on January 23, 2012 and is expected to last four days.

The trial originally had been scheduled to begin October 3 but was delayed to allow for the completion of DNA testing. Gardner’s attorney has disputed a recent WUSA-TV report on the test results.

I believe his newfound visitation is no more than twice a week, supervised, for two hours at a time, though the police/prosecuter could say for sure. It would be for the greater good if "Come On" could report visits to Detective Sonja Richardson, FCPD, at 703-241-5053 (her number was in the initial news report).

At a hearing in the Arlington Circuit Court Tuesday on a motion by Peter Greenspun, the attorney representing Falls Church resident Michael Gardner, to dismiss the charges against his client, Judge Joan Alper denied the motion and sealed its lengthy contents. Gardner is charged with three felony counts of aggravated sexual assault against three girls aged 10-11 in incidents that allegedly took place in his home last June.

Due to the need to investigate potentially exculpatory evidence presented in the motion to dismiss, the date for Gardner's trial was rescheduled from mid-January to the week of April 23, 2012. However, Judge Alper provided Gardner with more lenient terms of his bail. Greenspun pointed out to the judge Tuesday that parents of two of the alleged victims had been unwilling to comply with a Nov. 3 court order to provide key information until last weekend, when they learned of Tuesday's hearing. Prosecuting Commonwealth Attorney Nicole Wittman, from Loudoun County, acknowledged in court that DNA test results indicated that semen found on the clothing of one of the alleged victims was not Gardner's.

It is expected that DNA tests being conducted by the state on the identification of the person(s) associated with semen in question will be announced within a month.

It has been a month. Any news on this? I can't seem to find any.

The trial was supposed to start today until a continuance was granted.

The sperm found in the crotch and running down the left leg of the child's pajamas belonged to her father.
