I can't find any stories about this. Where did you find it? I did find a PDF showing him listed as a boys baseball coach for this current school year but nothing else.

Thanks aka lurker. The article wasn't indexed yet so I couldn't find it through google. Much obliged.

I don't have a daughter, but my next door neighbor is a junior there. I don't like the sounds of this, and I wonder how long it took to catch him. I hope it's only the three and no more.

Man, I wonder what it is with these so called Teachers going after young kids like they have been. I remember when I went there, we had a Teacher go after a Student but at least he waited until after we Graduated. At least I think he did anyway.

At Oak Forest we had a teacher get married to a student a few months after graduating. He also was a sports coach, and still teaches today.

I heard he is the asst. athletic director's nephew. Maybe this is not "newsworthy" because there are no allegations of intercourse as in Plainfield. Still totally inappropriate, creepy and illegal.

Sad, I think I know who you are talking about. The student graduated around the same time I did. But where is he teaching now? I don't see him on the OFHS staff listing.

Must not be the same one I had from Bremen. Of course, I have a couple of years on you both.

He is the nephew of Ms. Larson. He was talking to the 17 year old and the 18 year old for a couple months, since October. He started talking to the 16 year old at the beginning of November, she told one of her teachers that this was going on.
The two other girl's relationship with Larson were discovered as a result of the 16 year old bringing it up.

Well I am really surprised cause the staff at Bremen usually just has sex with each other, like 2 yrs ago when the AD got the cheerleading coach pregnant

It is a shame when an old buddy of mine called me to tell me about this. I grew up with this guy. Known him ever since kindergarten. Very disappointed

Maybe he retired, that was a long time ago, almost 30 years.
