Sketch comedy troupe video snarls Pontotoc County sex abuse trial

/> Lout, 41, faces 16 felony counts that could land him behind bars for the rest of his life.

Ross said prosecutors have not decided whether to retry the case.

Bailey said he asked Lout if there was any reason the girl might fabricate allegations against him.

Lout recounted his attempts to keep the girl away from an inappropriate relationship with an older man, Bailey said. He also mentioned the video.

Oklahoma City attorney James Hankins said the case probably won’t have an impact on other criminal cases, but it does raise some concerns.

Attorney Bob Wyatt isn’t surprised by the "Get A New Daddy” video because there are probably more like it on the Web.

Wyatt said such a video could have a big effect in criminal cases if there is evidence that someone watched it before alleging sexual abuse.

"I don’t think it’s simply a defense tactic. It’s an issue of credibility,” he said.

Wyatt is concerned the video will influence children and teenagers to make scurrilous allegations to affect the outcome of other cases.
