Witch hunt?

From the UK Guardian:

French authorities opened one of the nation's most horrific pedophilia trials Thursday, charging that nearly four dozen babies and children were raped, sexually abused and prostituted by their parents for a little cash, food, alcohol or even cigarettes.

Sixty-six defendants, some facing up to life imprisonment, were brought into a blue-carpeted courtroom specially built in this western city to hold them all.

Sounds an awful lot like the McMartin case to me. In this case the defendants are all poor, and therefore little able to defend themselves against prosecutors wanting to bolster their career at the expense of other people's lives.
