What they need to do is not make it so easy to cry wolf.

They should have another law, you get 5 years if you lied about the sex crime, mandetory, no if ands or buts.

Then if the girls lie they will think twice about crying wolf.
If they were correct, then one could be allmost 100% sure the guy is guilty.

And it's just my PERSONAL opinion that 99 percent of predators, rapists, pervs are usually b+tt ugly and socially retarded by any normal woman's standards so they look to get jollys from children and adolescents that don't know any better.
The standards that you use for not-guilty\guilty are retarded. So if he has clear hair and looks "good" (as deemed by you) he must be not-guilty. In the end the jury did not see it your way>

No - My personal opinion has nothing to do with it. However, to send a man to jail and ruin their life for a picture that never existed is a$$inine. This little bimbo was out for revenge and had nothing to lose plain and simple. Sounds like she was a good little actress in the courtroom in front of the jurors.

I honestly can't believe this women and her daughter. I was at the home of steve sanger when he took my 20 year old son(his nephew) and went to best buy that night. See thats the kind of person you are. Always making something from nothing. I was one of the adults that told steve he should go do his annual trip to best buy for black friday. As a matter of fact, he has taken his nephew on other occasions. According to my son, who just confimed all the datails two minutes ago. They went to Meijers first and bought jelly beans and coffee to pass out to some of those former students( some of which had asked mr. sanger to come) They didn't come and see parents and then leave. My son said they were there for almost two hours visiting with people. They didn't bring gloves and were getting cold. The whole family knew he was there. I tell ya, you are a piece of work. You have been trying to cause problems all track season. Even right down to crying stink that Mr. Sangers daughter was using an illegal pole to jump with. Funny though, when her and your daughter weighed in, it wasn't Sangers daughter who was over her weight for her pole. Maybe you didn't know the results of that. Maybe you don't also know that you are driving some people crazy with your poking in and basically stalking people. Let the case take care of itself. You need to quit playing lawyer, you aren't just bugging the family. You are bugging the community
I've got it from the mouths of at least six students who will verify that Steve Sanger arrived and left Bestbuy that night alone. Liz Sanger did not make weight although she knew for two days and fasted (wrestling). The other girl had lunch fifteen minutes prior to the surprise weighin and did not use her other pole until she was weighed in properly the next day at which time Liz sanger again weighed in at 144 and was using a 140lb pole. Last year when she was not dieting and fasting, she weighed over 150 and was jumping on a 130lb pole that was to be used by the other Byron Student. She and her father decided not to hand in the pole as they were instructed by the school and her butt "broke" it so she said. She was not allowed to even have the pole and by school policies must replace it along with the rest of the equipment that was taken and never returned by the Sanger family. Well I guess you've heard the truth, once and for all. GUILTY< GUILTY< GUILTY......Guilty by a jury that had no idea what else he has done to others in this school district. I guess the fact that his daughter is always sitting on her fathers lap in public with her shorty shorts on is normal and healthy as well, dispite the fact that he never holds his little girl and shows not affection to his other kids only his 16/17 daughter. Weirdo or sicko? As far as the whole family knowing that he was there? I guess your all as stupid and sick. Come on under the circumstances if you were up and aware why let him go? What business did he have up there? And I would swear as well as others (his own team members) that he was alone!!!!!!

If you click "report abuse" it may come off. I sent a note to WOODTV they should have it down in the morning.
Don't correct your name or put it on the web you never know who is reading this stuff and it will be on the web forever!
We did report it to WOOD TV and this entire blog was to be taken down. However, this is only mr. sangers daughter and the jury has done its job. Our children can once again be children and go to school with peace of mind. His family and relatives are fairly sick and do not seem to understand that it is not ok to tell dirty sexual jokes to young girls, take photos of them pole vaulting and watch the boys to see if they are watching the girls "butts" then pointing this out to the girls. Who does this???? We're good, not sure if it has been taken care of as yet. My last words to this man were that God would take care of him for what he did to my child. It was only weeks and he was arrested for this job. God works in mysterious ways, but he works.

Hey lady, I think you have the wrong year, or possibly i do about the best buy thing but either way, I can't believe you would even say that was inapproate. At any rate, it is something he has done for about five years. You also have your facts wrong on Mr. Sangers daughter and the weigh in. Mr. Sangers daughter and your daughter had the same notice to be wieghed in and they both weighed in and Mr. Sangers daugher weighed in under the weight for her pole. It has been documented with the school and you have your facts wrong or, you are lying . Also, you are very wrong about Mr. Sangers ever weighing what you said and jumping that far over . Another mistake, or lie??? They have also not kept any equipment, mistake or lie again??? You are mean and nasty and what you said about his daughter sitting on her dads lap is sick with what you are implying. You are the sick minded one. What kind of person would say these things after all this family has been through. You don't know Mr. Sanger at all if you don't think he loves his other children, he loves them all very much and I believe these accusations are just meant from you to harm them. You call yourself a christian and yet you say these horrible things. I also believe God has a way of taking care of things and we are just seeing the middle of the story. We have already seen some neat things only God could do in a time like this It is very easy to see your agenda. You don't realize that people can see right through your tactics. I have heard it say that you aren't just this way with Mr. Sanger, you somehow think it is your place to make every wrong right (even if you only see wrong) and change the world. I guess you just get the blue ribbon for mother of the year. Write a book and I will read it and then I will know exactly what not to do. You know, I need to pray for you, but I am too furious to do it right now. God please help my attitude towards this women. I will also tell you for fact that Sangers and their daughter haven't written on here. But, you can bet that I did and I am related. And... I love this family, I will stick by their side till the day God takes us home. I guess one good thing has come from this and from people like you. We are closer than ever and I never thought it would be possible to be any closer than we are. You know, thats one thing you could never change.

I want to advise the originators of this blog to consider removing it from this website. THere are things being said about the Sangers that COULD possibly lead to legal action. Statements and names of people are being written here that are damaging. Don't you think it's time to stop this nonsense? The community is allready divided enough and a lot of people no longer trust the Byron Center school adm. or believe in the legal system....
Mr. Sanger will survive this as he has a strong faith in GOd and,in time, the truth will possibly be made known. THere are some who believe that there is a lot more to the story than what has come out in the public.
For all of us to move on....P L E A S E remove this. It is doing more harm than good.

I know who you are and I already told you once that you were nothing more than a pathetic habitual liar!!
1. It was YOUR daughter that did not make weight! And what do you know she vaulted very poorly...poetic justice to me.
2. His oldest daughter sitting on his lap....your the sick weirdo, I've neve seen this in 8 years.
3. He does not show his youngest daughter any affection....how the heck would you know!
4. The "auhorities" already know who you are and that you don't tell the truth!
So why don't you shut you mouth and get a life!!

I feel sorry for you, YOUR the sick one and you don't even know it. I've seen LOTS of pole vault photos and there taken to try to help the vaulters and most of the pictures are not taken by Mr. Sanger. If you'd quit lying you'd admit this but that'll never happen. Don't bear false witness against their neighbor....I know I read this someplace. Why don't you try to live according to this commandment!

The school has photos and proof that this family was tresspassing using various high schools pole vault equipment when the track member was as others suppose to be attending track practice. Other members of the track team have verified to the athletic department that steven sanger was "recruiting" his former track members to practice with him at Wayland High School, leading these track members to defy team and school district rules and regulations. Rather than stepping back during this period and showing the maturity that an adult would in this situation, Steven Sanger as always chose to defy the rules and as he once stated "play by his own rules". This man on several occassions made "sexual" references to and in front of his male and female track members and students. I ask you, to ask him, what he was doing at 2:00am on black friday 2007 showing up without family or wife to a campout attended by young teens waiting in line at Bestbuy for early bird specials. Upon his realization that there were students that were chaperoned as well by parents, he quickly made an exit. Visiting? Is there not enough day light to visit his former students? This is just one of many, many, many incidents that have occurred through the years that just were not normal behavior for a forty year old man. It was for this reason that parents have for years alerted administration. However, it was not until he crossed the line of the law that he was finally caught. I hope he realizes not what the community has done to his family but what he has done to his family, community, students and track team. He must step up, grow up and finally take responsibility for his actions as an adult.
Your first satement, his whole family was trespassing.....wow, how would you know! Were you there too? Also that he was recruiting former track members....that's laughable, who or whom are you refering to? It's just my opinion but the jury got this one wrong, it happens you know! Mr. Sanger never did anything to the community or the students except be the best teacher and track coach he could possibly be. Quit harassing this man and his family!

This is such a huge load of BS I don't even know what to say. I hope you're satisfied with yourself; creating more grief for people who are already going through way more than they deserve.

Byron Center is slowly, steadily going downhill.
