Dear Ms. Terry,
I am so sorry for the struggles you have with your ex husband. It sounds like a very difficult road. But, I truly feel that I must speak out against people that assume the criminal allegations against Steve Curley are true.
Has it occurred to you that our criminal “justice” system can be used as a weapon and that Dr. Curley may be the victim? Did you know that his marriage to Karen Beaty ended because Ms. Beaty had an affair with her physical therapist in 2009? Did you know that she stalled the divorce proceedings, in spite of her wrong doings to try and get more money from Dr. Curley? Did you know she tried to extract $1 million dollars in exchange for not making this allegation? Did you know that the police could find nothing on Dr. Curley or Mr. Lehman’s computers linking them to this crime? Did you know that even though their divorce has been final over three years, that she is still trying to extract money from him?
I met and married Steven Curley in 2012 and he is the kindest most loving man I have ever met. Not only is he a wonderful husband and father, he is an amazing cancer surgeon, not just because of his astute technical skill, but because he actually gives a damn about his patients.
The delays in this case have also been heartbreaking to us, as “someone” has anonymously been making complaints to the Texas Medical Board and insurance carriers trying to prevent Dr. Curley from practicing medicine and attempting to destroy his career that he has taken over 20 years to build. His patients are also the losers in this. It has taken months for our attorneys to obtain information from third parties to try and prove his innocence…which is exactly what the system is making us do.
So while I appreciate your concern in tracking similar cases and feeling like you are doing something in response to a very broken system, I implore you not to convict my husband in the public eye when you have no idea what the real facts are.
