What is wrong with these Madison High School staff members??!!
Geez if kids aren't being shot at when they are at school (Asheville High), then they have teachers and staff showing them porn and such. No wonder kids are like they are now.

Not just showing them porn but actually having sex with a student. Its ridiculous. But then again, when you pay people peanuts to teach our children, can we really be shocked when they arent the highest calibur of people?

Some would say, that lineral or not, a 16 year old girl can call her own shots. We may not like what they do or say, but that's not the point. The point should be, did this guy use his position as an authority at the school to get the girl. If not, leave them all alone.

yes, seems like she did want it to, but he is more than twice her age, she is a student and he was school personnel, seems like he should be looking else where

Has anyone noticed the dress code, or lack of it, that parents are allowing these days? Girls are wearing less and less, and that is the clothes that parents are buying them. What do men notice? Sexuality, right? Maybe if we, as parents, policed the clothes that our girls wear, then older men wouldn't be attracted to 16 year olds that look their 25. Amazingly, some of the girls get their trashy clothes out of moms closet. No, I don't condone teachers going after their students, but let's still call a spade a spade. What are the girls doing to invite it?

Whether she wanted it or not is not the point. He is a teacher and an authority figure in that school. He has a responsibility to conduct himself in a moral and professional manner.

Of course she wanted it, what teenager doesn't? Didn't you get a few things you wanted as a teenager and wish you had not?

Its easy to hide behind a screen name on a computer and talk trash. If your so big and bad, call these guys up and tell them. You got beat up alot in high school im sure. Sounds like your the one with a butt fetish.

This law needs to get a serious look if you ask me. I can see somebody getting fired over something like this, but charged with a felony? It's a bit much.

Pot, meet kettle. You can kiss my entire a$$. You must be a real winner to defend these 2 pieces of trash. Learn some grammar when you get a chance...it's "you're", not "your".

and that is the point, M-60, those of us in positions of responsibility (teachers, clergy, social workers, etc) have both a moral and legal responsibility to conduct ourselves in a moral and professional manner. Sex with an underage student is neither moral or professional.

Even if people think she could "call her own shots", it's up to the ADULT, the TEACHER, the MENTOR, to do what is right. That doesn't include having sex with her.

It begins and ends with the adult, PERIOD. He knew it was wrong, and it is up to him to assert MORALS.

right on. Its hard enough for young people to have good role models with out some one stepping over the line. Sounds like some changes are due in Madison ....... MHS Baller arn't you hiding behind a screen name as well? Keep in mind
Billy Joel, THE STRANGER (If its not to much before your time)

Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out and
Show ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin some are steel
Some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of the stranger
But we love to try them on

Agreed, discretion is an admirable trait, but I still say discretion on the part of moms and dads when allowing kids out of the house is important too! Kids are allowed to dress(undress) any way they choose. Breasts are revealed, cracks are shown, skirts are leaving nothing to the imaginagion and we wonder why men are looking and becoming intrigued with our daughters? I happen to have a 13 yr old and will readily admit that shopping to find decent, stylish clothes is becoming more and more difficult. Luckily, she is 99% in agreement with what a 13 yr old should dress and look like or we would have major problems at my house.

Shame on the moral-less older school administraters, but shame on a lot of parents too!

That's right, lump all the decent, hard working, underpaid, dedicated teachers in our area in with those two human waste piles.
Look at some parents next time you are in the mall, then complain about the way children are today.
