Why? Because we think teachers should be fired for breaking the law?

I am an addictions counselor. This man needs help. Yes he needs punished for his actions and he needs to pay for the crime he has committed. But, while he is paying for his actions, he needs drug treatment. He needs to realize the number of people that he has affected with his actions of selling drugs as well as using them. While he is incarcerated, it needs to be stipulated that he will not be released until his counselor feels that he has internalized the information and is truly working on his recovery.If he is released before that, that will be a perfect example of why prison doors need to be revolving doors. There would be no reason for them not to be.

Some of you that say we "don't know the situation" and all that garbage. Well you can kiss my ^#$. I have a little sister that played basketball for him. When he was arrested, it was the best thing that had ever happened for Galatia and his own safety. So for all of you that stick your noes where it don't belong.$*#( off!!!

Any teacher that is found guilty of drug charges should receive the maximum penalty.

What kind of penalty is he facing?

I cant remember for sure, but I thought that he had (2) charges:(1) for Selling drugs & (1) for Selling too close to a Church.

I think he lives close to a Church. I am not saying that excuses his actions.

I dont remember him being charged for drug use, though....and you'd think that if the police were involved in an undercover operation, they would have known about it and charged him for that too.
What do you think?

Has anyone else heard that he was fired from his previous job for having sex with student?
I wonder if he received any legal or disciplinary actions from the State Board?
I also wonder if the teacher (himself) and the previous school revealed this during his job interview?
If not, I think the previous School should be sanctioned or fined.(and they better thank their lucky stars that the new students had not made allegations too)
I have a very low tolerance of any adult, but especially teachers that prey on young, vulnerable & impressionable kids.
It doesnt matter if its a man or a woman...or how much age difference there is. They take advantage of the trust, respect & power difference between adults & children.
