Is there any truth to the word being spread that he was forced to resign a couple of months ago from MAHS?

You are saying this might be another set up?

You are correct it MIGHT be. It seems like a MASD faction have been gunning for the suspect for sometime. I think they delayed or neglected to timely approve his contract extension one time.

There is another employee who was cited by the State Ethics Commision for haveing 12 pages of prono and adult oriented items on his MASD computer. He is one of the highest paid in MASD. The MASD gave him nice salarty increaes.

The accused may have been selectively set up like Mr. Shelly.

Attorney generalís office investigating MASD employee

By Jennifer R. Vertullo, MCKEESPORT DAILY NEWS
Friday, January 27, 2012

A McKeesport Area School District employee has been suspended during an investigation led by the state Attorney General's office.

"The district is aware that allegations have been made that may result in criminal charges being filed against a district employee," McKeesport Area public relations specialist Kristen Giran said Thursday.

Computers were seized from MASD headquarters several weeks ago. Unidentified district officials said the investigation focuses on whether child pornography was on the employee's school computer.

"Upon being advised of such allegations by local law enforcement, the district immediately suspended the employee and revoked all access to district buildings and equipment."

The district declined to name the employee, noting that the suspension is a personnel matter concerning an ongoing investigation. Charges have not been filed to date and the investigation began several weeks ago.

McKeesport Area School Board president Patricia Maksin also said the board cannot discuss any details of the investigation because it a personnel matter.

McKeesport Police Department officials confirmed that they have assisted in the Attorney General's investigation but declined to discuss the case.

"District officials have cooperated fully with law enforcement agencies in all aspects of the investigation and will continue to do so as needed," Giran said. "At this point, there is no indication that the allegations had any link to any other staff or district students."

Giran said the district will address parental concerns in coming days.

I know (or thought I did) Chuck South, the son charged in this case. He was always a bit strange, but I would never have guessed he was a pedophile. When out the group would always point out women who he should talk to, and he would always dismiss them as too fat, or not my type. Now I get why they weren't his type. Disgusting! I am very disappointed.

And just who do you expect to step forward to be a witness and file a complaint?

This topic has nothing to do with Holtzman, the football team, or alcohol. Football is dead in this town, nobody cares. Focus more on educating the student athletes...academic scholarships instead of sports.
As far as any investigation, I agree with Sheriff Jack.

I too used to be friends with Chuck South. I too would never have expected this. Chuck was involved with local groups involving children for a long time. I too did see a change in him long ago. Some of us just thought this change was due to the breakup with a girl friend and others had no clue but just noticed something was 'off' but like the other ex friend said Chuck was a bit strange. Whatever the reason I never saw him as a pedophile either. As a (now) father myself, if i had kids when we were friends I would have trusted him with my kids if I needed to. Not so now.
I guess you never really do know people that you think you know.
While I am very disappointed in my old friend's choices, I do feel bad for his mom and sister.

I looked over the MDJ dockets on Ben and his son. The list of alleged infractions is voluminous and frightening. Statically, at least a few will remain or stick and that may not bode well for the two.

I like Ben and cannot get out of my mind how they attempted at one time to discredit him and end his career for some unknown reasons. He survived this ordeal.

But what options do they have with the list of charges?. Apparently they cannot raise bail bond.

I would think that his only option might be to become a witness for the prosecution. This should send an earthquake like tremor throughout the MASD and city and union. This could penetrate the veil and code of union / administration silence?

Time will tell if the Cornell situation is dormant or over or resurrected. It seems like he has absolutely nothing left to lose by assisting the AG,
