he wouldn't have admitted to it, if that happened. I do see your point though. The media will twist anything for a good story. It's too bad that this kind of news can't wait until the whole court process is complete, verdict and all.(and even that isn't a 100% all the time)
All I hope for, is the truth to come out. I never want to see an innocent man behind bars; BUT I would never want a predator to be on the streets..

Well that should be easy enough to find the time stamp on the texts. If they occurred during class hours there could be a question. Also there should have been a follow up text suspecting that someone tampered with phone. But it does not sound as though only one text was sent. I don't see a student getting into a classroom, getting on a phone, and having a conversation with a student and still getting out of the room all before the teacher returns. The indictment lists communication between them over several months... That's a whole lot of leaving your phone in a classroom.

I just remembered that they were investigating him for about a year prior to any charges being brought up.
I take it there were no updates from court today?

We care because he is accused of sex crimes against a child. A child under his authority as a teacher. If you don't care, then you should punished as well.

Im not sure its a child, i call it a young adult that is old enough to know right from wrong, and if he continued to communicate with the teacher then he is as much at fault for leading on the teacher. right or wrong at this point its up to the courts to make a decision

Are you kidding? The kid was in high school. He can't vote or buy cigarettes. And regardless of your opinions on the development of adolescents, it is still against the law. He is still underage. And this guy was still a teacher, which is reflected in the stiffer charges. Do you know what grooming is? That is one of the things he is charged with. It's nothing more than a mindf*ck to get what you want from someone who isn't an adult. It's sick. If you like boys, that's cool. Wait until they're of legal age to make such adult decisions. Yes, the legal system will determine of he is guilty or innocent but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be suspect. Maybe he should get his teaching job back. I'm sure that would be ok with you, right?

What the hell does voting and buying cigs have to do with this? kids in junior high are having sex they are more mature then when you went to school in the 50s. this is a bad situation that I hope they prove the kid was at fault as much as the teacher , so go back in your little bubble and let the courts decide.

God, you are special, plastic helmet special. It is also not right for kids in junior high to have sex. Your courts have already determined that. I don't live in a bubble, I speak the truth. If what I know of the evidence is accurate, this guy broke the law. He should go to prison where he can have all the sex he wants, though adults seem to not be in his demographic of choice. It doesn't matter if the kid even initiated it, this would-be pedophile was involved. The courts will decide. And I hope he gets what he deserves, a nice long prison term. But oh wait, im sure they will drop the charges any day now. Been hearing that for a year. And for you, I wish you could be tried under the law too. But there is no law for ignorance and standing up for alleged sex criminals who prey on the young. You're a moron. I hope you don't have kids. And if you don't, I feel you should castrate yourself as to avoid further polluting an already troubled Coal City gene pool.

Whoa!!!!!!

Truth... You think an adult having inappropriate relationships with minors is ok because junior high kids are sexually active? If they are having sex then hey fair game you sick depraved sociopath? Yes, please let this degenerate be the voice of reason on here! The TRUTH is your effed in the head as badly as you must have been by whatever Uncle told you it's natural to feel this way. I don't care if a student is a day away from turning 18. Teachers are supposed to be a child's advocate first! They are put there to teach and watch over our children, not have sexual conversations with them or offer sexual encounters. Innocent or not, those are the charges. But to condone it, and defend it because "what's it matter"? You deserve death.
