"We need to stop letting our kids think they are mini adults with no rules or consequences. I also think uniforms should be seriously considered. The Prada needs to stay at home. "

Coming from a student from HHS, I must ask, what would be the point? It only the preppy type kids who do this type of thing, and they're sort of the kind that blend with uniforms easily.
In fact, I guess that's what I should be asking, what would a uniform do?

As for the mini adults comment, well considering the fact that I, and this girl during the time are legally considered adults and in only a bit we'll be on our own, yea, I guess mini adults is the correct term.

Mr. Parkman was my homeroom teacher for the record. We all thought he was gay.

Obviously you know NOTHING about him nor his family - this comment doesn't even make sense nor address the issue.
Coming from one of his homeroom student, we all thought he was undoubtedly gay.

Georgia Judge Ken O. Nix Refuses to Dismiss Sodomy Charges Against Teacher
Katheryn Hayes Tucker

Fulton County Daily Report
June 25, 2010

Cobb County, Ga., Chief Judge Ken O. Nix has denied a motion to dismiss sodomy charges against former Harrison High School orchestra teacher Steven Parkman for having sex with one of his students.

Even though Parkman's relationship was with a girl old enough to consent, prosecutors pursued sodomy charges based on the acts having occurred in public places.

Nix wrote in an order dated Tuesday that Parkman's evidence couldn't support his claim that the charges violated a constitutional right to privacy.

The order notes that the alleged acts took place in a room attached to the orchestra room at the high school and in the parking lot of a public library. "The court hereby finds that these areas are public areas in which the defendant did not have a right to privacy to engage in these alleged sexual acts," the order states. "Moreover, the court agrees with the state of Georgia that there is no place on the grounds of a public high school that was designed for persons to have sexual intercourse."

Parkman was first indicted for sexual assault against a person in his custody. But Cobb County District Attorney Patrick H. Head added the sodomy charges after Cobb County Superior Court Judge Robert E. Flournoy III dismissed a similar case against a teacher who had a sexual relationship with a consenting student because Georgia law does not prohibit such a relationship.

Because Georgia's sodomy law has been successfully challenged as it applies to consenting adults in private, Head focused on the public aspect of Parkman's alleged encounters.

Parkman's attorney, Noah H. Pines, could not be reached for comment, but he said after the April 13 hearing on his motion that if the judge ruled against him that he expected to appeal.

Men are animals. No self control and no character. They prove repeatedly to lower themselves to this level. Thanks to our culture it won't stop anytime soon.

i think this entire story is slightly ridiculous. the girl and the teacher are both at fault. they both participated. if he was assaulting her, she should have quit orchestra. obviously she wasnt that hurt by it because she showed up to school in the few days after everyone found out it was her. she clearly wasnt ashamed. Anyways, he is going back to jail, so i guess justice is being served.

Do you expect the girl to just drop out of school? Of course she showed up....its school. And how could she quit orchestra in the middle of a semester with out a good excuse? Think before you write.

all of you are fucking retards that think parkman was a good teacher. he was horrible. maybe the ones who ran DR. TUTTLE off believe so, but that's because they believed he was too challenging. what were we in baby orchestra? parkman had us playing mickey mouse shit after that. we lost a wonderful thing after my freshman year and ended up with this pos that so many of you are trying to defend. i always thought he was a creeper and was not a bit surprised when i heard about this back in 08. the man deserves what he's gotten...arrogant SOB!:) wonder if he's got that stupid little smirk on that squirly face now?! baha

If there is grass on the field, play ball.....it's funny that morality and legality change depending on religion, time or location. 17 year old girls know EXACTLY what they are doing. I have female cousins in high school and if you parents don't know, orgies and sex parties are THE NORM. Kids today are doing things in 8th grade that I didn't do until junior year of college. I was having sex at 13, and smoking weed. But I wasn't streaming porn to my phone on the bus, or watching it in class. Attention parents....your kids are having orgies and smoking weed and snorting coke and drinking. They know how to get away with it, most have 2 Facebook accounts, one for the nosy parents and relatives, the OTHER for whatever.

Its ironic that everyone suddenly knew the girl, and knew how she acted and knows everything about her. I am pretty sure that before this she was a no one, who never really did anything. And now all of a sudden EVERYONE knows about every detail.
Just goes to show everyone must know everything. One of the true problems in this world.
