Resolved Question:

They though continue to hound me and our wrasse me, as they claim they have sufficient proof that I am a child molester is this not double jeopardy?

Double jeopardy only pertains to protect you from twice being charged with the same alleged criminal act. You were acquitted of this criminal charge, so they cannot again seek to convict you of a crime in connection with that particular event. However they can continue to allege that you did it, in the context of some other, non-criminal, matter.
