Well there's that saying, "Where there's smoke, there's fire!". All these rumors must hold some truth because I can assure everyone the Feds wouldn't of taken it to the Grand Jury if they didn't think they could convict him. It's sad to think there's probably far more victims than we will ever know about.
I'm so on the same page with you The Feds are not going to take a case to Grand Jury without knowing 90% sure they will get a conviction. I again agree on more victims. I figure now that an indictment has been hand down they won't be afraid to come and tell their story. Then the courts will need to investigate every case he's worked and build a case on him

If the Phelps family were the only people in Laurel County to be concerned about everyone would have it made. There are plenty of people in this county that hide behind positions of authority that actually need to be investigated but never will be. I know it as well as everyone else in this county there are cliques in every aspect of local government and every community based organization. You are either born into the clique, married into the clique or have paid your way into the clique. From the biggest tax sheltered churches to the 3 feet thick paved driveways of the magistrates and their buddies. The school board is now and always has been notorious for soap opera type drama; anyone that lives here and doesn’t realize that is simply not paying attention. To single out any particular family as being better or worse is totally ridiculous. If you are looking for a decent community where honesty, morals and integrity still mean something to the citizens; leave Laurel County. If by unlikely chance you should find such a place in existence today please do post the location because I will pack up and move there too.

All of this anti Phelp discusion reminds me of an election for sheriff years ago here in Laurel county. A gentleman from the north end of the county, who often frequented the counter at Begley Drug, ran for sheriff. Sadly, despite having a big family, he got less than twenty votes. The morning following the election he came in Begleys, which prompted one of the characters to tell him,"...if I didn't have more friend than you I'd hole up with gun in each hand." Much to his credit the defeated candidate laughed too. But I must say the current matter is sad, and reflects badly on this county.I hope its not true. but if it is there will be serious reprecussions.
well old timer, i hope you or any of yours especially never got to close to doug, cause there was a time when people took that kinda serious.

The Phelps clan have always gossiped and tried to destroy others lives in London. I will never step foot back in Weavers after an
incident they pulled on a dying man. But that is just one incident in thousands that they have committed on others. They carry chips on their shoulders and take their bitterness out on others. I would say that if you took a poll in London 1 out of a 100 people would not feel sorry for this family.

Read again. One of the most ridiculous. Not the most. I am not defending anyone so once more read again. I said nothing about slander etc either. READ AGAIN. What I expressed was for you to make a comment about someone mentioning details about an ongoing investigation when everyone else was doing it from the beginning is ridiculous. Freedom of speech goes for all not just the ones you decide should have it. You didn't hurt my feelings. People like you don't bother me in the least. And like I also stated earlier, this isn't about justice for a young girl for some of you. This is a chance to express hatred. Have fun and enjoy your freedom of speech. So will I. P.S. Maybe Bob is busy. I doubt your mental ramblings ran anyone away.

The media knows someone facing charges can't talk to anyone. That is basic legal advice given to anyone who is accused of anything. They know he couldn't open that door. And if they had caught him out somewhere, he would have said no comment. A defendant has to do that.

And you aren't doing that very thing? And what I said isn't wrong. If you get in trouble for something see what your attorney tells you to do.

A defendant is not prohibit by law fom discussing the case. But the Fifth Amendment to the United States gives a defendant the right to not talk to anyone, including the police. But some defendants do talk to the press. Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach, who is charged with child abuse gave several TV interviews. But its wise to keep your mouth shut.

Your veiled threat is funny and, from what some say, sadly typical. I said nothing deroggatory and expressed the fact I truly hope these allegations are false. But let me assure you I find it amusing, not threatening because people like you don't amount to a flax seed in a bears rump.

The lights are off and his office remains untouched, Charles Douglas Phelps won't be sitting back at his desk unless charges are dropped.

Sonny Fentress, the Interim Superintendent of the Laurel County school system says,"He has not been working with kids and he's been on leave since the charges were made."

While employed by the Laurel County School District, Phelps was the director of Pupil Personnel, "He would have been the one the would visit homes and he would visit kids. If you had a child that you weren't sending to school than he would be the first, or that position would be the first line to come and check and see what the problem was," adds Fentress.

Now, Phelps has some legal problems of his own. He is facing three separate charges of sexual abuse.

The alleged victims were both under eighteen.

He's also accused of giving alcohol to the teenagers.

Parents are alarmed after hearing the allegations.

"Disgust, and if he done it he he needs to be punished," says Melissa Moore, a Laurel County resident.

Moore is a mother of two children, Hannah and Matthew. Her kids are still too young to go to school but when they do reach that age, she has new concerned after these allegations surfaced, "When you turn your kids loose, you don't have control over them anymore. You leave them at someone's mercy, so yeah its always a concern."

We attempted to contact Charles Douglas Phelp's at his home, but after walking up to his door, the blinds shut and he didn't answer.

As the law states, Phelp's remains innocent until proven guilty. Therefore, the Laurel county superintendent says Phelp's future within the school system is unknown.

You know, it just ain't right for so many to take joy in this matter. Even if you have axes to grind with Mr. Phelps, nobody should be taking any joy out of this. Just look at all of the lives and money wasted as a result of this. I guess I am guilty too, I do read this thread daily but I find no joy in the matter. Shame on all of us.
