Band Director Chuck Gilbert has been suspended because an alleged sexual assault occurred in the band room during school hours. I guess he's the scapegoat in all this but what about Philip Jacobs-why wasn't he suspended too. I think you all know the answer. Total BS.

He was suspended because he knew of the inident and didnt report it. he also knew of another incident involing the same boy but different girl that was reported amonth ago and he did nothing about it or let the school know..If he would have done something about the first one this one would have never happened. It was the same boy both times and this boy happens to be Chuck Gilberts daughters boyfriend..

The second child would have never been raped had the first incident been reported. That sexual predator would have been out of the school and all teenage girls would have been protected if mr Gilbert was as great as the people town believe he is , he would have done the right thing the first time.

Mr. Gilbert admitted he knew of the first incident and did not report it. That was the reason for his suspension. He acknowledged that he did it in both the schools and the police investigation.

Philip Jacobs needs to go. He is a no good dirty little weasel of a man. He has that " Little Man " syndrome. Bully's his way through the school corridors on a daily basis. What a little tyrant. Just saying it like it is.

QUESTIONS: Does anyone know the status of this alleged "rape" at HCHS? What did they do to the boy who supposedly committed the rape - I hope he's not back at HCHS? When will band director, Mr. Gilbert who was suspended get back to teaching at HCHS? Why was principal Philip Jacobs not held accountable for this since it happened inside his school? Why was this area of the school not secured?

I realize this thread is a bit old, but if anyone sees this, I'd be grateful for an update. I spent most of my childhood in Centerville, and Chuck Gilbert was my music teacher all through middle school. (Class of 2002) At that time he was one of my favorite teachers. He even helped my mother and I. She was terminally ill and wasn't able to get me to the Nashville airport for my flight. He drove me up there and didn't ask for a dime. And for the past few years we have been connected on Facebook. He seemed just the same. I guess I'm rambling like a mad man, but I am just so completely shocked to hear this news about him. However, I am not taking his side or defending him by any means. I'm also not going to throw stones and cast judgement. I wasn't there, what I've read here is all I know about the situation. I guess you just never know anymore, that's a sad fact of life. When I read this I removed him from my Facebook account, because as a mother with two daughters of my own, I always take every precaution possible to protect my children. If this happens to be true and he had knowledge of this, then I personally believe that he should not be trusted with children and I do not want to be connected in any way to anyone capable of such atrocities. I truly hope and pray that these accusations against him are false. But if they do prove to be correct, then I will be completely devastated. It's saddening to think that it's even remotely possible for someone to do things that you never thought they would do. Especially something of this magnitude. While I'm waiting for a reply here, I'll dig further into it, and pray for it to be a misunderstanding.
