I have been coached and taught by Dubas and he MAY not have been inapproriate with you BUT this may not be the case for the victims. How dare you say these girls are lying, I can think of a handful of girls who have felt the same way but have been too scared to come forward and say anything. Just because he was great to you, does NOT mean he is the same way with everyone else.

i beleive he did it. his dad molested me, and mike always tried to date very young girls like 13 or 14 and he was a man, adult. a lot of people thought it very strange he would show up to a party or function with a very young looking adolense coverrd with a pimple face. usually a girl who was a little homely or lacked confidence. ould be at leasta 10 year age difference. that is ok if your both adults but not 13 and 23. your past will always come back to haunt you.

Guys until he is found guilty or not guilty by the courts our opinions as to whether he did it or not is pretty much irrelevant.
You can never tell if someone is a molestor and child abuser, even the nicest, most popular, loving, friendly and God fearing person could be hiding this terrible secret from everyone.
I was sexually abused by my "loving" uncle from 4 - 9 years of age. No one knew. He was ever so nice and he was a pastor... when my parents eventually discouvered this horrible thing, they did nothing about it because they didn't want to tarnish the family's image and they wanted to protect my aunt from this enormous pain.
It takes A LOT of courage for someone to stand up and point the finger at their abuser. It is not easy, it is scary, it is embarrasing and it hurts many people.
I don't know if he is guilty or not, but I know that if in fact he abused or did innapropriate things with these girls and others that eventually Karma will comeback and make him pay for it.
My uncle died 5 years later from a long and painful heart desease condition. He had many many heart attacks before he died and the doctors didn't understand how it was possible that he was still alive, each one was worse than the other. I am happy he suffered a lot and I am most happy that this SOB is dead. I hope that the God he so passionate preached about in churched has closed the doors of heaven on him and sent him on a one way ticket to hell where he is miserable and rotting forever!
If Mr Dubas did something to these girls or others in his life, I hope he pays the ultimate price.

Mr.Dubas was the most honest, fun, and loving teacher out there. And I find it funny how everyone thought he was guilty, when really, those dumb girls made up a horrible lie and ADMITTED to it. It trashed his name in town, and he still struggles. I pray to God that those girls get what they deserve. What kind of people would try to purposly ruin a mans life. Really? Get over yourself. He was nothing but nice. Both you girls disgust me for what you did. And you cry to the teachers because people bully you about the situation. In my opinion, you deserve to be bothered. You're nothing but low life immature girls. If making someone else look bad boosts your confidence, then you really need to get some help. I love Mr.Dubas, as does my family members. And I wish the best for him. He was the best teacher in Primeau. He workded there for years. You girls are unbelieveable...
