Diana's Accusations

Diana says that while babysitting her granddaughter, Taniya, the toddler detailed ways in which her father, Todd, inappropriately touched her. After learning of the accusations, Taniya's mom, Latia, reported the alleged sexual abuse to a judge who immediately stripped Todd of his parental rights  — but was justice served?


"I asked, ‘Taniya, what are you doing?’ and she said, ‘My daddy do that.’"



Who's To Blame?

Latia says she has proof that Todd molested her daughter. And did the father’s girlfriend, Kristin, partake in the abuse? Plus, Dr. Phil makes his first declaration about the allegations. Find out who he says may be the guilty party in question.




"I have to tell you, what you are reporting here is very suspicious to me.”




The Truth, Revealed

Todd says he will go to any length to prove his innocence, including taking another a lie detector test — although he's already passed one. He's adamant that Diana is lying and says that she coached Taniya to make the accusations. Dr. Phil calls in an expert polygraph examiner, Jack Trimarco.
