When he goes to trial and he is found guilty Which I believe he is he should spend the rest of his life in prison to be a teacher of any kind and have sex with a minor that your surpose to be teaching the trust he was given with our children and use it like his personal prey not to mention what this has done to the young student and her family I think all teachers need to be screened for drug use just like the students for sports or a truck driver for his license I am just outraged

he has been doing this for years, usually he was smart enough to wait until they were 18. no one that graduated from there is surprised.

hes not the only one who has done this. there is a teacher nearby who did the same thing at another school and they let it slip by and he just resigned with nothing on his record. he is now teaching at another school in the quad cities. figure that one out

when a student can go after a teacher and they know they can't be held responsible, this type of thing will continue to happen. people keep throwing out names of girls and saying its happened before. where are all these girls? your telling me none of them are willing to say anything? probably because it never happened. so we have a girl who went after her teacher and made it well known to her friends that she did. is her life a mess now? yes. but from what i have heard, its what she wanted. of course he had a role too and he has owned up to it and will pay a heavy price. we have yet to hear his side of the story. only a very sketchy version of the girl's story. when her facebook is littered with party pictures and sexual content, i have a hard time calling this girl an innocent victim. she obviously knows what she is doing. i would love to see what he has to say about her role in this. maybe someday we will.

The only thing this has done to the family is given them there 15 min of fame. If you saw her facebook profile this hasnt hurt her in any way she is going to bars and the last time i was in one 99% of the people in there are over 21 so this lil victim hasnt learned a thing

And 'haha') is probably a bow-leg-insomniac to boot. Meaning he can't either 'cross' his legs or 'sleep.' Just immature.

People can say and talk as big as they think they are, until they are toe to toe , with the one they are talking about, or to one that is close, and knows the things that didn,t get published. Oppions are like (blank-holes) everyone has one but the only thing that comes out is wiped with tissue paper. and thanks to the ones who have thier OPIONs they,ve made the news media rich and everyone (stupidly) poor of intelligience, so show your ignorance and stay POOR

This means, that there is more than what is being said in the media. People appear to be more swayed by what the media has covered, rather than what the facts really are.

only one version has been told. not a very accurate one either. and i am still waiting to find out how legal it is for channel 8 to run the stories they have. the "facts" are not accurate, and the evidence should not have been released. just because a person has taken a plea offer does not mean that his rights as a citizen are gone. thanks to the girl's mom and chris minor looking to get their ugly faces on t.v. this has become ridiculous. am i wrong, or wouldn't it have been better to have blurred the faces of the mom and chris minor. it would have been much easier to watch.

So...you should go see Helen Waite? Actually, many local media outlets have covered the story.
Do you even know how to use Google, totally A? And.. as far as Ms. Minor goes, I've had the pleasure of meeting her working on a story at Niabi Zoo (guess what, they take video's of children for the parents in case that child was ever to come up missing.) I've seen her working stories at the R.I. Courthouse. She is quite a very lovely, intelligent and cool young lady.
You need to get a life, totally 'A.' before it's to late.
