An incident that allegedly took place on March 27, could land a local man in prison for 10 years if he is convicted on any of three counts named in a recent indictment.

The woman that is the alleged victim, knows as abby.. well someone needs to look into her file. dig deep go way back. she seems to always be a victim all with the same exact story the only thing that is different is the men. this girl needs to be stopped in her tracks. im a female and i cant stand when a man puts his hands on a female, and if in fact he does yes he needs to go to jail. he needs to serve his time. but what about mr puga. in this case he was a victim not the "alleged victim" also knows as abby...

as i sat in the court room observing(keep in mind i dont know this mr puga person nor am i any kin/friend of any sort to any of the parties) the case.. yes the truth came out. she made up the story. we all want justice and im sure this man wants the same thing. this needs to be known it needs to be out there.. this mans name has become destroyed because of this female.

you all need to know the outcome of this matter. what they failed to tell you and im sure it was not going to be put out there but here it is.. all charges have been dropped. they came to a conclusion this man was falsely accused.
