I've known this man and his family a long time and this action would be so way out of character for him. I hope and pray the Jury can see the truth.

Any adult, especially a teacher who would use the position of power to prey on an innocent child deserves the worst possible outcome. I hope they make an example of this monster.

I am so glad to see that this guy got off. I rally believe that the truth has come out. It is very troubling that young girls can do this to people and try to distroy a persons life.

Justice in D.C.- get a life! The jury came back with a unanimous not guilty verdict. Obviously there is no example to be made as this guy is NOT a monster!

You "hope the jury doesn't see anything", like the truth???? One of the jurors was even a friend to this girls father and he still voted the guy innocent. He "deserved" to be found innocent and be free.

His teaching record speaks for itself...He's done this more than once...and she had no reason to lie.

If she had no reason to lie why was she caught in a lie. Why did she lie that another man did this to her at a library several years ago and then admitted that she lied. Oh I believe the AD and others were caught in lies as well. One word....EVIDENCE!!!

First of all...the stuff about the library incident was never allowed into the trial. She wanted it to be allowed because she wanted to tell them that she never denied it happening. Never once did she tell anyone that she lied about it happening. In fact, to this day if someone asked her about it, she would tell you it did happen. As for his teaching records...well, I guess no one else had the guts to turn him in. But I would say disappearing with a two girls in a cemetery at 10 at night, while a bus full of other girls are waiting and parents are waiting for their kids at the school would be frowned upon...As for them catching the DA in a lie...not sure what you mean about that, but if you want to talk about lies, let's talk about his claim that he wasn't at school on the day she claimed he kissed her...the DA proved he was lying with the absentee reports that HE filled out and SIGNED! I don't know where you get your info, but you might want to find another source.

Oh, yeah...and as for EVIDENCE: What about the piece of paper that he wrote "b-room, which 1" on? Seriously, which makes more sense: he was quizzing her about where the ark of the covenant was kept, and she didn't understand what he was asking. So, to make it more clear, he wrote it down. But he didn't write "Which back room was it kept in?", no he had to make it really clear by writing "b-room, which 1"
OR...maybe her story makes more sense: He had her draw a map of her house, and he wrote "b-room, which 1" to ask her which one was her bedroom, but he didn't want to say it out loud because other people would have been able to hear....Hmmm, that's a tough one, I wonder which makes more sense...

Just my opinion, I think they should have hung this guy by his balls! Regardless if she pursued him or he pursued her, HE was wrong!!!!!

You're all in denial about who this man really is. You're easily fooled, and maybe he's good at fooling people. He's been drove off from other schools on suspicion. This man deserves to be locked up for the rest of his life, and when the day comes I certainly won't ignore what my children are telling me IS going on. Open your eyes. You're only hurting the KIDS here.

This perverted sick monster is as guilty as he can be. He may be out free right now, but one day he will have to account for what he's done. What's even more sick to me is that his wife knew something was going on and then she got up on the stand and defended him by lying. I just don't understand how she can live with herself. I just pray that he won't turn his attention to their own kids.

Hey I've known the victim and her family, and yes she AND her family are victims, and there were more before her, and now since he got off there will probably be even more... If there isn't already!!! Who prays for something like that. Some evidence was not allowed into court and another victim, that had been in a similar situation before, did not testify because her mom wanted to protect her from the emotional trauma. The following information came from a member of the jury that served on this case:
THE DECIDING FACTOR FOR MANY, IF NOT ALL, OF THE JURORS WAS THE FACT THAT THEY DID NOT LIKE HOW THE DA PRESENTED HIS CLOSING. THEY FELT THAT HE WAS TOO SHOWY.
Well guess what... I saw his closing and he did a much better job than the defense attorney, who I felt presented his client's whole case like he was a wannabe character on some cheesy law movie. You know the kind where they have the terrible fake Texas accent and everything. He had this cheesy character down perfect, only sadly, he wasn't acting. That was his true character, or should I say lack of character; I think that would be more appropriate since a got a criminal off. I guess it just came down to a matter of opinions, but sadly, the presentation of the evidence should have mattered more than the presentation of the closing, only it didn't. He was guilty and I can say that without any doubt in my mind. So you can take your WRONG OPINION, and yes it is an opinion, because it is a fact that he is guilty, and well I'll let your imagination run wild with what you can do with your WRONG OPINION!!!

These weren't Mineral Wells girls, these were Graford girls. Maybe you should get your story straight. Sounds like you are one of those "loose" Mineral Wells girls?????
