HOW SAD IS IT THAT THE VICTIMS PARENTS NEVER TOOK RESPONSIBILITY FOR THERE DAUGHTERS ACTIONS. THEY NEED TO FACE THE FACTS THAT THERE DAUGHTER IS TROUBLE. I WAS IN THE COURT ROOM WHEN MR PAGEL WAS SENTENCED AND WATCHED THE VICTIMS PARENTS TALK IN FRONT OF THE JUDGE AND ALL I CAN SAY IS FACE THE FACTS PEOPLE. THIS LITTLE ANGEL OF YOURS IS BAD BAD NEWS AND SHE NEEDS SOME SERIOUS HELP. AND IM ASHAMED AT THE VICTIMS PARENTS FOR NOT ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THERE SO CALLED LITTLE ANGEL

yes matt pagel should accept responsibility for what he did but i was in the court room and i didnt see her parents accepting responsibility for not knowing where there 15 year old daughter was when this happened. they should be ashamed and if i had a 15 yr old daughter i sure as hell would wanna know where she was and who she was hanging around with. all i saw was the victims dad head shake in disgust when he talked to the judge about mr pagel and all i can say is there is responsibility on both parts.

I am ashamed at the two prior comments. How dare you judge. You have no idea what this girl could have gone through. She was an innocent, young 15 year old who was obviously suduced by a man who was in an authority position. I was 15 once and remember how difficult it was to be strong or self assured. Now being a teacher, I am ashamed to call this man a professional and the fact that people choose to blame the victim or the family is appauling! You have no idea how you would act if it happened to someone you love. It is so unfortunate that this has happened. Who do you think will be more scarred by this? The coach or the girl.
