I attended Douglass years ago. Back then this would not be heard of or known. It's sad and repulsive of what is going on in Woodland almost everyday, especially cases like this.

Hope we don't hear of any Douglas School children were victoms. Well, the teacher basically gave up his career, freedom and now will be a registered sex offender or something discusting and a SHAME to his family, friends and society for the rest of his life....hope it was worth it!

First of all, at this point, the teacher has been arrested on SUSPICION of posessing child ponography. The teacher hasn't been to trial yet nor has he actually been charged. If he is charged and then found guilty by a jury of his peers, then you can all start & he deserves what you all say.

Until then, remember that in this country, people are innocent until proven guilty.

I can't, for the life of me, understand what a grown adult finds stimulating in a child. My brain won't even let me process that kind of thing.

please lets make sure Mayor Davies does not write a letter of clemency for this pedophile...just like he wrote it for Brett Pedroia.
Glad this criminal was caught.
It's disturbing that this is a very real possibility. In fact, many here in town are suggesting that this is more than likely. Financial gain? To be honest, as nice as our super-senior-citizen mayor is, I can't understand the mayor's reasoning.

Trust me, it did happen, it happened and there were no mandated reporters, yes at good ole Douglas Jr High....the stuff was swept under the rug. Any office staff from back in the day can confirm this if confronted because there were several girls that made open complaints.

Creeps have always been around, we just have a higher population now so more opportunties for crime.

"Tomsett was...informed of the criminal charges against him at 2 p.m. at the Unites States Eastern District Court in Sacramento, and is now housed in the Sacramento County Jail pending a detention hearing today."

What do you think being informed in court means?

Did you read the story? Did you see where he said he started looking at it five(5) years ago? Are you really that stupid? The FBI did not get involved because they might get an arrest and a conviction! Stop posting, because your STUPID!!

My son played Soccer for Mr. Tomsett last school year as well as attended his class in summer school and played soccer for his team outside of school. This is a shock!! We never would have expected something like this from him. I feel for the boys that played for him I know most of them and they all had alot of respect for Tomsett he was a great coach and the kids truly enjoyed playing soccer for him. I honestly don't think his players are victims. My son and I are the best of freinds we talk very openly and if something was not right my son would have told me. I hope the other parents can say the same.
wat a heartbreaker
