Most who worked with Mr. Bartling knew of things he was doing with the girl(s). We couldn't do anything about it. It's good to see he got what he deserved. He needs to serve the full 10-20. Those poor girls didn't have a chance against this manipulative old man. He knew exactly what he was doing. Oh yeah. Dave, how's the boat, get all the DNA off it. Lucky it didn't become inter-state case.

You knew about what was going on, but could not do anything about it???

Please. If you knew that abuse was occuring, and chose to ignore it, then you are almost as guilty as he is.

You are a fine specimen indeed. Perhaps 2-5 for you in jail would make you understand that no matter how much you now try to defend yourself, the truth is you (and anyone else who "knew of things he was doing with the girl(s)" yet use the excuse "We couldn't do anything about it") should be hiding under rocks in shame instead of crowing about knowing it was happening and trying to make yourselves feel better by saying he got what he deserved.

I agree with the Interested Spectator....... if you knew about the abuse to these innocent children then you should have taken the proper steps. There are #'s you can call and still be anonymous without giving your identity. Maybe these children would not be in this predictament.

if u 2 knew what he was doing to me then why the hell did u let it happen!? i swear people don't want to get caught up in anything and i at the age of 16(at the time) had the f*cking balls to take him down. thanks a lot for your damn support and i hope to hell you don't have children of your own cause what it did to me and my family was terrible and if u EVER had to go through the same damn thing you'd probably wish you were f*ching dead. word of advice, SAY SOMETHING WHEN YOU KNOW ITS GOING ON!!!

I worked with Dave, and if I for one minute, knew he was or thought he was molesting children, I would have went to some one, I would not just let it slide. What if it were your child? But you choose to just let it go. You should also be in prison
