I cant believe someone would do this! A child psychologist had sex with another child. What is wrong with people?!?! That child will be hurt for the rest of her/his life because of this creep.

I KNOW this man, and this is absolutely without a doubt NOT TRUE. He has devoted his lifes work to helping kids. We need to wait for more facts before making any judgements.

IF proven try, they should fry this dude. He's supposed to be helping people, some help he is. Hope he loses his license.

My kids are(were) patients, but I was always in the room. He seems like such a nice man, it's just scary to think it could be true.

If he is found guilty, they should turn him loose and let us deal with him.
before some bleeding heart judge feels sorry for him and gives him probation.

If he is not guilty, I feel horrible for him. His career is probably over. However, if he is guilty- what a scum bag. My son saw him a couple of times and I always had a strange feeling about him. I guess I should go with my gut instinct next time. I am just thankful he was never alone with my son.

Innocent until proven guilty.

And why did WZZM headline it as PineRest Psychiatrist arrested.......... when it had nothing to do with Pinerest and it wasn't a patient?

It's called "story context" and WZZM felt that they needed to let people know who his employer was, but that no one from this location made the claim of abuse. It's to calm the public and also to warn the public at the same time.

Your idea of "innocent until proven guilty" means zero to the children he's harmed, but thanks for sticking up for this piece of garbage. Maybe you can write him letters when he does prison time if you're that concerned for him. He's a pig.

Way to contradict yourself. First you say I KNOW he didn't do this. Then you say wait until all the facts come out. What if he did commit a sex crime?

We agree with Kelly and Doug, We're sending our prayers and thoughts to his family and friends. Innocent until proven guilty...sometimes when people have it in for someone...they can say anything.

You are absolutely right. My first instinct was to defend my friend, but now after talking to the family I stand corrected.

SURPRISE SURPRISE !!!!!!

Why do you think these PERVS choose the occupations they do? CHILD psychologists, Teachers. Get it ??? So they can be closer to their prey. Lock them all up and throw away the frickin keys.
