Regarding the livermore parolee with kiddie porn in his car, yeah, he was previously a "choir teacher". Here's a link:

Just wanted to make it clear that I knew John...
This case is comepletly different. The child that accused him was a convicted rapist in Texas that got a lighter sentence because he made up the fact that he was molested back at home. The only evidence presented at the pre-trial were several eye witness adults there on the night the child says he was molested. They said nothing did or could have happened as they were there the whole night with John. And that is why the case was dropped. Please get your facts straight before making accusations. As for the program John runs... It is the best. Children learn focus, self-confidence, ethics and manners.

Bill,
Scary.
I couldn't find any details but I have no reason to doubt what you say. I'm glad John's been able to continue doing what he loves.

Jonathan Stoker, you sir, are an idiot. Since when does having a majority or minority opinion determine the validity of one side or the other, when it comes to facts from an event?

Additionally, in response to this garbage, "if you really do your research, you will find out alot in contrast to what bill is saying." How can you even state that without providing some sort of source or evidence? Personally, I believe it is simply because you have none. You know I think you were just born in the wrong time period/area, because you would most definitely fit in around Salem during the witch trials.

This here is a quote from a post from one of the parents who had a child in John's program. I'll even give you the web address rather than come off as ignorant.

"Gonna go ahead and jump in here. Ted is right in all his facts. My daughter attended the school at the same time as the aforementioned child...this same child was a convicted rapist in Texas, having sodomized his own six year old brother.

Ted is also correct that in trial, he blamed his own step father and others. The accusation of John Pfund was made to lessen his own punishment.

I personally was at that gym four days a week during the time in question. My Daughter was at the "Ninja Night" in question.

Ted is also right when he said I never recieved a call from Law Enforcent Investigators. I left at least 10 messages. If he was guilty, I more than anybody wanted to know. I knew at least 10 other moms at the time (we would talk when we went to pick up our kids) and NOT ONE of them recieved a call from investigators.

Want some more...

I attended the hearings...there was no evidence other than the kids testimony. And the kids testimony was so unbelieveable, the judge even said so.

And yes, there was naked pictures on his computer. The same computer that all the teenage boys that worked for him used when he was away. Check your own computer if you have kids. Look in your temp directories. It will have a ~ in the file name. You have porn on your computer. You are a child molester.

John lost his business, his home, his fiancee, his friends, and it still continues today. The city planning/building commission did everything they could to stop him from doing business, acting well outside their charter, because (lets be frank) of the covert characterization of John as a child molester. I had a city inspector come out openly and tell me he would continue to red tag anything he could find to keep John from opening. Forget about John's rights for a moment and imagine if city planning, the IRS, Health Inspectors, or the DMV employees started stepping into Crime Prevention and you found that your applications just went "missing" because the employee felt a duty to put you through a tangle of bureaucracy until you just gave up and quit.

Those of you that called him a Sicko and pervert, or continue to perpetuate this talk should take a good look at what your doing. Do a thorough investigation of the facts and quit accusing anonymously. "

Initially it was, until people started associating this with Pfund. Have you ever met the guy? He's actually a good person, who had false accusations against him which tarnished his reputation. I almost wish you could be falsely accused of something, and even though you were entirely innocent, still have it negatively effect your life, that way you could look at it from another perspective. Then again, I would never wish something so horrible on someone who doesn't deserve it.

Thats a terrible thing to wish upon someone. If he is innocent,then I feel bad for him. Most kids dont make up false statements about being abused. Is this Mr.Pfund?

This isn't Mr. Pfund. I decided to post here after I was looking up his academy website online and this popped up on the search. It really irritates me to see that his name was mentioned on this message board, especially seeing as he was falsely accused and the charges were dropped, meaning he is innocent. Do I know him? Yes. He's a great guy, who doesn't deserve any of what he went through. And that isn't true at all. Most kids lie just to save themselves, because they have no idea of what repercussions they can cause by doing so, they only think that it will remove them from accepting responsibility for their actions.

That's the thing about being accused of pedophilia. Its the stigma attached to it whether you're innocent or not. You're just damned. Kinda like that other Karate instructor that got accused. Mr. Smith had a Kung-fu studio in Livermore, then a couple of girls accused him of inappropriate touching. No charges were ever filed, he never saw a day in court and yet his life was changed. He closed his school, he moved out to Tracy. Sad, very sad.

Adriana..

Maybe not to you. However, it definitely does matter to him, his family, his friends and his students. And there isn't anything wrong with people hearing about his past. However there is something wrong when facts are partial and incorrect, which is entirely why I am defending him.

Toad..

I agree, somewhat. However I wouldn't view it as being damned, I'd view it as another challenge that one has to overcome, and they will if they are persistent in trying to overcome it.

Is this school still open? Drove by it saw people inside still. WOW! Don't parents care about kids at all? This was his son which he still supports and supported the past years. What did he get away with in the past I wonder.

Yes, why wouldn't the school be open? Since when does one judge on the actions of another? Would you close a public school or suggest parents do not care about their children if they took them to school? Would you close a swimming school or gymnastic school, based on the deeds of another?

I read the press release. And based on that no daughter of mine would have gone without either myself or my wife, called being a responsible parent. Next off, no daughter of mine would allow someone to have "raped" her while other teenagers slept in the same room. The whole reported incident sounded off the hook. Furthermore it is common knowledge in Livermore that this is the second time in a year this female has cried rape. You come across like you have a personal problem with the accused. And like AVHS are you in competition business wise?
