I think that it is sad that this little girl that has went through some thing horrible is now being called a liar.

Iran Floyd, interim superintendent at North Judson-San Pierre, said the case of the fourth-grade teacher is now in the legal process and that "this is really out of our hands."

"The only way we're concerned is that he is our employee," Floyd said, adding Lehocky won't be in a classroom until the case is resolved.

Hey Iran, nice way to remove yourself from the decision that you and your subordinates made to hire this loser. Let's hope that interim tag on your title soon changes to "former". And acknolwedging that you use the word concerned in your statement in place of the word involved, aren't you also involved in this little girls future mental state and well being?

As a former Starke County resident with family still living in the area (including 9 school-age nieces and nephews), this disgusts me.

I'd be happy to return to SC for as many weekends as it takes (if this dirtbag is found guilty) to administer my own form of justice and punishment on him.

Two crimes were commited here. One by this so-called teacher. The other by the administration that hired him and is now trying to distance itself from any responsibility.

I agree with Mike. I have a child in the North Judson elementary school. One of my friends daughter had Mr. Lehocky that year. I am concerned of the administration as well. Even after this story busted out in the papers, we still did not receive any notice of concern from the school on what actions were being taken. I believe that there should have been counceling for young children that attended school and being around him, also some kind of research to try to find out if Mr.Lehocky tried this with anyone else. I've heard several comments had been told to the administration on his actions in the classroom towards little girls and in gym class. I too believe that the school should have taken more of an action concerning this matter than what they did. It seems as though administration was trying to keep this quit in our town. My question to Mr.Lehocky would be how could you seeing how you have girls of your own?

My brother had Mr.Lehocky as a teacher, from what I remember, Lehocky gave my brother a hard time, and at one point Mr.Lehocky transferred over to being the physical education teacher, I recall him playing dirty music in the class... even though kids may be exposed to that kind of music at home doesn't mean that the teacher should encourage that kind of behavior in an elementary school. Mr.Lehocky used to called my grandmother and say that my brother needed to stay with him after school to get things straightened out, right then my grandmother thought this guy was a weirdo, so I wouldn't doubt it, he probably did violate this innocent girl.

what had become of this Iran Floyd? Did he used to be a cop at Bass Lake years ago?
