When someone we think we know commits a horrible crime out first instinct is to go into denial. It's a self-preservation mode, otherwise we have to admit that we are a poor judge of character, that we put out children in harm's way willingly, and that something awful may have happened partly because of our own lax behavior.
So you'll see lots of families who were already willing to do anything to whore their children into stardom defend this rapist...until the awful truth contnues to pour out and maybe even their child was caught up in it as a victim.
Maybe next time they'll apply the hard-earned lessons we all should know by now.

Don't these girls have parents.Seems like if they knew their kids they would notice a change in them. Also some parents push their kids to their dream's of glory.

our child danced at that studio for over 6 years. As a parent, you try to involve your kids in safe, wholesome activities and then this happens. Someone that describes himself as a father figure, teacher, mentor, and friend has more time with some kids than their parents (sad), making this type of behavior even more disgusting. I wonder how he would feel if this had happened to HIS teenage daughter?
Soon, there will be no trust left in the world and we will have to lockdown our own kids for their safety. I also agree with 'Caveat'. I'd like to see anyone; parent or teacher, try to justify these acts and defend him.

Why spend time investigating? Just give him some of the truth pills and we'll find out for sure.

I agree, How would he feel if it were HIS daughter? He got his satisfaction yet these girls will have to live with this forever. What is the world coming to?

So, let me get this straight. As my daughter gets older, gets cuter, and continues to dance, I have this guy to watch out for? Thanks for taking such 'good care' of our children. It's nice now that we have to explain this to them. It should be Mandatory that this guy explain face to face to each parent, his actions. Then again, for his benefit, probably not.

My 9 year old daughter took dance at Georgio's for 4 1/2 years until we moved away last year. It's scarey to think about how much those young girls, including my daughter and her friends, worshipped and trusted him. He is a married man with a teenage girl of his own, so you would never expect this. I'm just thankful that we are very involved in our daughter's life and never left her alone with that creep!

I am wondering if he molested his own daughter as well? What a shame this is, you think you are doing something nice for your kids and then you find this type of stuff out. When my daughter took her dance classes in Otown, I sat right outside the door - week after week. My hubby said I was obsessive and I should allow her to go alone. I said No, I am staying right there. Maybe if some of these others mothers had done what I did, their kids would not have been sexually assaulted. I would never allow my kid to go somewhere with a group overnight without me.

Don't worry Wildjosie, He will get his when he bends down to pick up the soap in the big house. I do have concerns for these young ladies that have been sexually abused by this pervert. Lets hope they get the help they will need .

I thought if you gave a woman drugs and she was unable to consent to sex or the consent was drug educed the male could be charged with rape. If at anytime during the consensual sex the woman decides it's no longer consensual it becomes rape at that very moment! There hundreds of thousands of men in jail over this. It's amazing the cops are charging him with rape of the adult women since they were under the influence and unable to give reasonable consent.

I called this guy out since day 1. My little sister has danced at this perverts studio for awhile. His relationship with his students (99% of which are female) seemed to be way too close to me. He would hold sleepovers at his place and take these girls across the country on trips, etc. It seemed like he had no other life than to hang out with these teenage girls. No real respectable father figure or man would do this for a living. Hope that perv enjoys the slammer.

I'm with 'crushed'. To place your trust in an individual, only to see this happen. It is scary, sad, and nauseating; all at once. I hope if there are other victims, that they have the courage and family support to come forward.

A Lake Mary dance-studio owner was arrested Friday after investigators said he repeatedly gave his underage students illegal drugs and sexually battered them.Fagan was released Friday evening from the Seminole County Jail after posting $10,000 bail..........
"" Ten grand for molesting heaven knows how many underage girls."" This slimeball is getting away with this crap way too EZ...He ought to be charged ten grand for each and every girl he gave drugs to and had sexual contact with...In my opinion he should have his privates removed,then they ought to sentence him...and seeing as I don't believe that I shouild have to pay for his incarceration,put him in front of a firing squad and remove him from society completely...keeping slime like this in jail is just a waste of the taxpayer's money...bullets are cheap,and I'm sure that there are alot of people out there that would be more than happy to perform an execution...just my opinion...

Josh,
As a mom of a daughter who attended the studio, I agreed with your observations and your point that he should be in jail until I read, "No real respectable father figure or man would do this for a living." Then, you became a complete jerk! So, what's next? Men can't be stay at home dads? Men can't be teachers? That statement was just not thought out at all!

Wow, I think I'm in love. You are one in a million. I wish I knew you better because good people make great friends, and you can't have enough great friends in your life or good people in this world.

What Georgio did was completely wrong and he should go to jail for his actions but lets not forget that these girls should also take responsiblity for their actions. Why would they take the pills in the first place. Its not like they are 10 years old and may not know better. By the time you are 15 and 17 (and I have 2 dautghters that age)they should know wright from wrong. If they didn't take these pills and reported that he tried to give it to them in the first place maybe there wouldn't be anymore victims.

What the hell are you talking about? First of all, you must understand one thing--these girls looked up to this man. They put all of their trust in his hands, and he manipulated them. He had the kind of power over them that a parent might have over their kids. So before you go off putting the blame on the girls, think about that.

To the mom4 - I believe that Georgio is a predator. He knew which girls he could lure and get them to go along with him. These girls are VICTIMS, and while they made poor judgment calls, did so under the authority of their mentor, teacher, and hero. By saying that "if they never took the pills and reported him in the first place this wouldn't have happened...." is a very ignorant statement and this kind of mentality does not help the VICTIMS, only hurts them further.
