Ultimately he is the adult and the predator. These were young girls that he took advantage of in the classroom in the closet and on the desk! I could not be happier. These young girls will need help and counseling for years to get over this. The girls did play a part of this and maybe their hormones were a part of this but, HE should have walked away because there are many adult women for relationships. Way to go!! The families can start to recover. The girls won't hide or be ashamed any more.( And.. they never should have.) It is my understanding that the adults in the small town of Lipan have forgiven and forgotten, but the students really treat them badly because they liked the coach. Were they the next victims? Some have had to change school districts. Where are the parents and the teachers not to address this with vigor. Who is to blame,,,who cares accept these girls for who they are and who they were. Realize they are human and God will judge not you. Who do you think you are anyway to allow yourself to do that. Way to go girls I am and always have been proud of you.Hold your heads up high and step high the future will be bright for you.

Shay Isham Hes a sexual preditor hes not going to stop, till he dies its a proven fact. What he did was wrong. Very wrong. And if you think his sentence was bad you should know whats going to happen to him the 54 years hes in there. Who cares about the time spent for drunk driving. You should be ashamed for even representing him, or even showing your face with him. What was your purpous for representing him? besides the money. This is bad publisity for you. Sorry about your luck, this one made you look bad. Girls im proud of you.

The girls hormones may have played a part so the girls are held harmless? Maybe the coach's hormones played a part.

Were there not also plenty of high school boys these girls could ould have had a relationship with?

Pretty foolish post.

WRONG! No a foolish post. The girls are children, the coach is an adult. Hormons have nothing to do with it, the coach betrayed a trust as an educator. Danel you are also wrong. While I find the coaches despicable he is entitled by our Constitution to a trial and representation. His attorney is to be admired for doing his job no matter how repugnant it may have been. Have you ever heard this? "It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it."

Tex, I agree. Hormones have nothing to do with it. That's why the post is foolish.

Not justifying what the coach did by any means.
