Myself and my family have known this man for many years. We, as well as others, are having a hard time believing that he could really do something like this.

If so, I would not friend him.
You know its comments like this that make me think we have no hope as a society. Anyways, I'd like to hear some more details about this. As it stands now with the information given it is strictly he said she said stuff. Maybe the guy needs to be castrated or maybe someone is just out to smear him. Who knows.

Should we assume he is innocent and rally to have him back in the classroom next week?

Pickles: I think Dade's point was that we live in California; the hyperbolic suggestions here, linking his Facebook in a blatant attempt to engender harassment, and the assumption that he's guilty until proven innocent are rather un-American.

Hopefully he didn't commit these crimes. If he did, throw the book at him. Until it's figured out, clearly, keep him the hell away from the kids, LOL. Legal system is doing its job. Let it be.

Reminds me of Ted Bundy's neighbors who said he was a great guy and good friend. They all loved him.

I'm sorry but, as a mom, any GROWN MAN who 'friends' highschool kids on his facebook already has one strike against him for EVERY kid on his facebook. I know, I know: the kids shouldn't request or accept, but let's just 'ASSUME' for a second that highschool kids aren't always the sharpest tool in the shed. He's an adult and should know better and use common sense. So far, it doesn't look too good for Mr. Testes.

He can remove his Facebook account at any moment he wishes and thus avoid visits on Cyberspace. Oh yeah, he's in jail and has a 1 million dollar bail requirement. Well, maybe Dade will bail him out. Or, he could ask his wife to do the Facebook removal. Even escaped criminals have been found on Facebook, by the way. If you have special secrets, you risk being discovered on a Facebook account.

Mr.Testerman was a well liked teacher, who many students requested to add as a friend, not the other way around. Many teachers, male and female, have facebooks in which their students are linked too.

You're right.. it makes him an automatic sicko. Just like anyone else who communicates with anyone under 18, they OBVIOUSLY must be sexually attracted to them and molesting them. Boy, I hope you don't talk to anyone under 18, related or not, because then you must be a perverted sex offender too.

Anyone remember when it was safe to communicate with people and be friendly?

I'm sure that will be part of his defense. But either way it's inappropriate and this is a perfect of example of 'why'.

If you google his name you will find him doing many things and I am sure he had a broad base of friends in many communities who are saying, "HOT DAMN! Would you look at THAT?!!!

This is a reminder that if a teacher wants to do extra favors for you, take at least three friends with you, or better yet, your parents.

Wow. He was one of my teachers in high school. I remember him being very quiet and a little odd, but I never would have thought something like this. My heart goes out to the family of the victims....but to his family also. I can't imagine what they are all going through. I have no doubt the Davis Police are working as hard as they can to find the truth. If he did these awful things then he should pay. If he did not....what a sad road to travel.

First of all, none of you know him on a personal level. Second of all, he was NOT CONVICTED of these charges yet. So who even knows if he really did it? Instead of sitting on these sites and talking shit about a person you have yet to meet, why don't you do something more productive with your lives? Have you read a book in the past oh, ten years?

And FYI..about the facebook thing, MANY teachers befriend their students. How is befriending a student on facebook when THEY have requested you inappropriate? He doesn't post personal issues like most of you dumbfucks do, he spends his time talking about the culture he has experienced through his various travels. This could certainly be an enriching experience for others.

This 43 year old man has had his career ...and possibly his life...ruined over something that MAY NOT HAVE EVEN HAPPENED. How would you feel if your name was smeared in a matter of hours over an allegation? Either way,innocent or guilty, his reputation (that he has worked VERY hard for) is down the drain. Maybe you should all take a minute and put yourself in his shoes before you spread useless shit.

Sites like these make me worry about the sake of all humanity. You don't even know this man but you're already judging him. If you people are the parents of these school children it makes me fear for the next generation because you are ridiculously cold hearted and WAY too quick to judge.

Now please, go about your lives like you don't even know this man...

Oh wait, that's right! YOU DON'T KNOW HIM. I think it's pretty pathetic that you're wasting your time talking shit about a man that you DON'T KNOW, have NEVER met, WILL NEVER meet. Grow up!

Mr. Testerman is a great teacher regardless of what anyone has to say. Provided he is innocent, this is an unfortunate situation that he has been placed into. My thoughts & prayers are with him and his family. I highly doubt this man is capable of the crimes he has been charged with. From what I have observed as a student he is an honest, caring individual with nothing but compassion about his job and his family. I truly believe he is innocent and I think it is incredibly immature for people to be talking about a man that they have never met.
