Craig Schelske, Sara Evans’ husband, is denying all allegations in her divorce proceedings against him. In court documents filed Thursday (Oct. 12), Evans made several allegations involving adultery and pornography.
In a statement distributed late Friday (Oct. 13) on a national news wire, Schelske stated:
“Sara and our three children are the most important people in my life. I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisors are currently waging.
“I adamantly deny the allegations that are being made.
“As distressing as it is to have to communicate about this matter publicly, Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed.
“The best I can do at this difficult time is ask that people of faith would pray for her and for my family.
“My greatest concern is for my children and the irreparable harm they are at risk of facing. As such, I will have no further comment on this matter outside of a courtroom.”
Schelske, 43, was in the national spotlight in 2002 during his unsuccesful campaign as a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress from Oregon.
