Sexual abuse by priests, teachers, rabbis, etc. have been around for a long time (unfortunately). Only now they are being caught left and right and the electronic media gets the info out faster and to a wider audience.

This guy was also talking to students on MySpace.com last year and was told to stop doing that by school officials. That should have raised a red flag at the school.

My daughter had him as a teacher a few years ago. His wife used to teach in the same school. I heard that they divorced since my daughter left school.

Actually, most of what these teachers get is a "paid suspension" or "moved into administrative duties" while still getting paid. What the hell is wrong with that picture? They should be investigated immediately and fired if found guilty of doing anything inappropriate.

What is that, the NEW forensics? Shouldn't there be an investigation first? Look at what happened with Tawana Brawley's accusations. How about the accusations against the Duke Lacrosse team players? Come on. Give them time to do a thorough investigation first. In the meanwhile, let the individual be assigned to administrative duties. He's not going to go anywhere.

Thank goodness for the security guard. Otherwise, most wouldn't believe the child and that person might be allowed to remain near kids.

I hope by "administrative duties" you mean that person is not allowed on school grounds. But you can bet that he's still getting a paycheck, even after being caught in the act. Here's to the teacher's unions.

he stays on administrative duty or possibly will be paid at home until he is convicted......and he will be convicted, lose his certification and be a registered sex offender....it is justice.

He was my teacher. Always seemed to be something odd about him, always being extra nice to the girls, touching their faces, pretty much flirting with them. Not only has he made it hard for that one girl, but he has made it difficult for all his students who now have to go through the rest of the year with a substitute.

Is it just me or are the articles every day about teacher sex abusers? Maybe they should follow the example of the Chuch and do something about the problem. The Church cleaned up its act. Where is the public outcry about these teachers being reassigned IN THE SAME SCHOOL AS THE PEOPLE THEY MOLEST. The Teachers Unions are among the worst protectors of these monsters. Why hasnt Laura Ahern made speeches about the behavior of the school administrators and union leaders?

Ok I have a serious problem with this system. It's not as if it was allegations of him fondling the student. There was an eye witness who brought him and the student to the administration.

What idiot ok'd adminstrative duties for this perv? What is wrong here? He was caught with his hand up the girls dress.

I'm sorry but there is definitely a severe flaw in this system.
