Can we just stick to the facts and leave it at that?
1) He was accused
2) He was arrested.

That's all that any of us know at this time and it should be left at that for now.

i dont beleive it either people are so quick to judge Rickey has been around my kids and other kids i know all there life and all he ever did was try to teach the right way. Nobody should judge any body. Going nuts aint gonna prove nothing are you mad about the situation or are u mad cause he black ask yourself that?

he has a family of his own who misses him so much its a shame how people are treated by hatred his brother was beaten by men of a diffrent race but they both treat everyone the same what about his family a good family people should think before they speak now the facts before you swing the axe you might cut the wrong tree he just buried on of his kids and before anybody that feels im wrong 4 defending him look in the mirror and put yourself in his shoes his wife shoes his 4 daughters who want their dad home
i agree with you we grew up round Rick in Anmbrose so i know him people dont care in there eyes he just another black man in jail Susan Smith accused a black man too and she lied but i guess thats ok so many people have been let out of prison thanks to DNA all due to people that lied a lie dont care who tell it remember that readers

I agree totally...there has to be some major evidence for them not to release him! I have known Ricky a long time but I also know the other party as well...they would not lie or coach their child to say any of this. There are people, such as pastors even, that we have trusted with our kids that has done terrible things to them. You can not take anything for granted when it comes to our precious children! The truth WILL be known!! And I think we should be in prayer for ALL involved...This is a very serious situation!!
how many times have we seen where innocent ppl have have served half of their lives for RAPE only to find out they were never guilty?

You'll never know just how those parents feel until your little girl or little boy comes to you and says they've been touched in their "private parts!!" They are taught as early as 3 and 4 years old what a good touch AND a bad touch is! A 4 year old has a mature enough mentality to know if she was touched inappropriately or not! Shame on you all, especially the ones of you who are parents to say that it was orchestrated!! Just put yourself in the shoes of the parent for a minute and think if your child come to you with this kind of news! Are you automatically gonna call him/her a liar?? Heck no. You're gonna wanna go confront the person who was said to do it! Then to say it's a black/white issue...that's so pathetic! I'll be the first to agree that Fitzgerald, along with all the surrounding counties are very racial driven but I would feel no differently about the situation had it been a WHITE man and a little black girl or a BLACK man and a little BLACK girl! That's just ignorance coming out of people!! The child's well-being should be the concern IF it was done. Don't just automatically ASSUME that it DID NOT happen because you know him personally or he's coached your kids...that's just more motive. I've known him for years, and several that he's coached. NOBODY wants to have to accept something like this when it happens! If he did it, I hope he gets just what he deserves!

You never TRULY know a person and what they are capable of. You can trust the man all you want and love the person because of previous interaction and you can support that 100pct.....but you can not say without a shadow of a doubt anyone is innocent or defend that person until the court does it's job. Now, that is a 2 way street and the person deserves a fair trial and should not be convicted without facts ......period. Whether you believe the person or the accuser....no one truly knows. There have been plenty of priests, coaches, teachers etc that have been arrested and placed in prison for these types of crimes and everyone was surprised so I wouldn't be so quick to say this man is innocent and stand by his side. The only people who know the truth are the accuser and the accused. Everything else is just hearsay!!!

i hope this is just a huge misunderstanding. i have girls that have attended wiregrass since they were six weeks old and not once have i ever doubted the wonderful care they receive there. mr. ricky has been my girls daycare provider since he started working there and he has always been wonderful with the children, this allegation has really shocked me. my heart goes out to all the persons involved. i pray for the little girls and ricky that this is not true. i also pray for the parents of the little girls, just having to imagine what they are feeling is overwhelming to me. my heart is heavy for everyone involved. Jesus be with them..
