How can you find him guilty before the trial? It is a shame that so many little girls grow up in cities where they are taught to mess with teachers. They are made to believe that nothing is wrong with it unless they get caught. If you went to school with Shawn--think back to your high school days at how many little girls wore their shorts inappropiately too short to get the attention of male teachers and the ones that were rumored to be messing with a teacher and no one ever followed up on it. This mess has been going on for years but until it was time for this man to be named something big somewhere--this comes out. I don't think that this man is guilty of doing anything to this girl that she did not want done and more than likely she just wanted to do some things to him!!

I know coach graves didn't rape her. she wanted him to do that. they was always around him on his jock. they might have pushed him to do it. from a male point of view you can't let no cat go like that.

Ofcourse want has happened is not good, and if this is true then I feel for Shawn for being drawn in to these young girls.

The problem is that these young girls are really promiscuous. I see more young girls (high school girls) running around than I see adult women (legal age). And it seems that these young girls all go after grown men now. And for most of these girls if you didn’t actually know them you might get caught up because they look and act older. But even for some men, the “mature look”–(safe word) is sometimes hard to resist. It’s just unfortunately that Shawn got pulled in to this.

Also some of these young girls even try blackmailing to get what they want, and I even know some that actually told the man that if they didn’t talk to them they would like and say they did. Crazy world!

I was at school and the girl always would do things to throw herself at him. she would stay later after class and flirt with him, she would do favors for him in class and even be real flirty by bending over and things like that. Hello.. she knew what she was doing...She didnt stop him, not once. Its not Rape when both partners are involved and want to be. the girl changed things up when it came down to getting caught.!!!

I would also love to know what happend with this. I worked for Shawn at Waffle House in Boiling Springs and I just thought the world of him I was very sad to hear this. He might have mad a mistake but he really is a great person. Anyone that knows him would know that.
