Funny She also lived with him for a year and also helped him publish his book. Sounds like a women scorned for not getting something she imagined she deserved. Sad to ruin a genuinely good man for her dissilusions. She is a bald faced liar.

let me see, she was 16 when she was raped AND sodomized by a 30-something-year-old man, then he moved out of state..... he has had multiple documented cases of theft and embezzlement in Ashland, you call this a "genuinely nice man"?

makes me really wonder what kind a person YOU are... hope YOU aren't a teacher or a coach...

you live in MO WTF do you know about these two people. She wasn't 16 and it didn't happen during his time as a teacher. She was 19. NOT Raped. It was consentual. Why would a poor little girl raped and sodomized follow him clear to Virginia after he busted his butt to get her a scholarship in basketball, Live with him. Follow him all the way back to Oregon. Help him publish his book. And then conviently 8 years later say he raped her. Maybe someone should check her back account to see if one if his disgruntled partners has padded her account. All and everyone who knows him knows he didn't do this. Everyone that knows her , knows she is a vendictive. This is just a case of jeolously as he had a wonderful life, great family and was struggling in these times just like alot of other people to keep everything afloat. You have condemd him before he has even had a trial.

WhataCrock, you are so accurately named!

You can't even spell, what, was this guy your teacher, too?

We seem to be talking about 2 different victims.... maybe there are others?

Maybe everyone should shut up! Do you really know a damn thing about this case except for what you've read? I think the number one reason Im embarassed to be an American has something do with the fact that we assume too much and know too little. One thing though, that I believe that is self evident: no one is pure. So, why are people so eager to make gallows without due course?

whatacrock knows what he/she's talking about. Everybody in the school knew about it at the time, even her mother who would sit there and watch the games. I always wondered how she could sit by and do nothing...
