I know him too. He helped coach my son's baseball team. I also hope it's not true, but could that many accusations be untrue??

We continue to pray for those involved. I also pray that it is not true, but please remember that God continues to love us even though we are sinners.

I just don't think I believe this guy did this. My son who is 13 spent a lot of time with this guy in many activities and there was never a problem. No one in the current area has come forward. Also I find it odd that the accusers are friends as well....

All accusations stem from the same 2 people. If they each said there were 50 incidents, the report would say 100 accusations...it is basically these 2 guys' words against the accused. If no one else comes forward, I bet they have a hard time convincing anyone this is true. I know this guy, and this would shock me beyond belief if the accusations are true.

. Not sure of details but his family must be hurting to know truth. He was good friend in college.

Sadly, if he is found innocent, his teaching career is over. It will shock me if Trey is guilty

This is another teacher who was arrested over a year ago for having sex with a student. She is STILL out on bail, yet Trey Gardner remains in jail. I don't understand.

I would be shocked if these accusations are true. I went to church and high school with Trey. He comes from a great family and I find it impossible to believe he would ever force himself on anyone. I pray for the families effected by this.
Just keeps happening

Praying cannot change the past.

Of not true, the act of accusing is just plain evil, because you cannot remove the stain of the accusation.

The doubt follows the accused forever.

It is also not great for the accuser should there not be enough evidence, or it is indeed a false accusation.

Those who make such accusations just out of spite will carry the stain of mistrust forever.

Thus the vicious cycle of a no win situation.

Very hard to prove and very hard to acquit in public opinion.

That is the horrible nature of this particular crime.
