Deserves every minute of it. On the other hand, the girl could be screwing half the football team and nobody would say anything was wrong with it. She's a little strumpet and not innocent either.

What are we missing here? Yesterday in the Dispatch we read about a teacher here in Central Ohio who had sex with one of his students, and he got 90 days in jail, and now today we read this guy pretty much did the same thing and he gets 6 years? What is wrong in Ohio? Is our system that screwed up?
The teacher/coach was sleeping with an 18-year old woman who also happened to be his student.

Young women nowadays look and act far older. It does'nt make it right but what did this young lady look and act like? Rape was not mentioned.

Oh so his age matters or just the fact that is he over 18 years of age and she isnt? Pretty sure the law does not include what your age is if its over 18 years.
Point being is that she was not forced and at age 16 can make smart choices as well. No one on here knows who initiated what.
it doesnt matter who initiated what..on that idea then incest is ok with u..men and women who cant control themselves when around immature kids, or seek that type of atmosphere in their jobs purposefully for the opportunity, have to be held responsible for sleeping with underage kids when they have a distinct advantage in age, experience and knowing the consquences and the damage it can cause..

Any basis for your slanderous claims, or just wishful thinking on your part?

You could be screwing half the football team too, how would we know?

Look - its never mentioned if the girl allowed it or not. With not using the term "rape" she may have accepted it and wanted the relationship. In Hilliard where I am at, these 16 year olds dress and act way older than their age. It could have been consensual between both parties. And I do not want to hear anyone debate that she is to young to know better.
At age 16, the years given to this guy is acceptable. Both parties are at fault!
You are about as clueless as they come my friend. She was 16 F'ing years old and he is 47. He knew her age and he knew exactly what he was doing. If you think think this was OK simply because she was 16, you need your head examined. He preyed on her and manipulated the situation for his own sick satisfaction. I sure hope you don't have a daughter.

All people have a weakness. It's tragic that some people take advantage of young people. He should be punished to the limit. Our nation has become a nation of abusers. Drugs, alcohol, sex, gluttony, and who knows what else. The bad thing about this is that many people comdemning this person would do the same if given the opportunity. Remember sin is what the other guy does.

You cannot be SERIOUS? A girl at 16 in an environment where you are supposed to learn about God? She wasn't at a bar she was in church! A child is most vulnerable for attention when parents are going through a divorce...he preyed on this girl..give me a break, it's called manipulation, gaining trust and controlling....You can bet I'd keep my daughters away from people with your mindset
