UPDATE: Substitute Teacher Arrested on Sex Abuse Charges; Name Released

UPDATE 2/22/13 @ 7:25 p.m.
MASON COUNTY, W.Va.(WSAZ)-- A substitute teacher in Mason County faces two counts of sexual abuse, accused of having "inappropriate behavior with a student."

Mason County Sheriff's deputies on Thursday arrested James Paul Hadinger, 43, of Gallipolis Ferry. He was charged with two counts of sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, custodian or person in a position of trust to a child.

According to the criminal complaint, Hadinger was a substitute teacher at Hannan Junior Senior High School and became involved with the female, underage student during the last several weeks.

On Feb. 12, investigators say Hadinger met the student at a grocery store and the two went to a basketball game together.

Deputies say after they left the game, Hadinger and the girl drove to an abandoned house along Ball Chapel Road in Ashton where he allegedly engaged in sexual conduct with her.

According to neighbors, Hadinger was also a preacher at Faith Gospel Church in Gallipolis Ferry. He led several youth groups at the church.

According to the Sheriff's deputy on the case, Hadinger gave a written confession to the alleged incident.

He is in the Western Regional Jail; bond was set at $200,000.

Hannan Junior Senior High School Principal Karen Oldham said counselors and school psychologists are being offered to students as a result of the incident.

Mason County Schools Superintendent Suzanne Dickens released the following statement on the incident:

"Confidentiality requirements prevent me from commenting upon or discussing any allegations of employee misconduct. In the event disciplinary action is taken against an employee by the Board, further information will be disclosed. However, I can say that anytime the district is confronted with allegations relating to the safety and welfare of students, the allegations are taken seriously, thoroughly investigated and that measures are taken to ensure that students are safe and not exposed to any continuing risk of harm."

What he did was horribly wrong...there is no excuse for his actions. I know the family well and the girl in question is known for having affairs with older men. Apparently she is very seductive (this is coming from classmates, not Jim's family). Not saying that this makes it ok, but there is more to this than just his actions. He still should have known better.
Yuck

I don't think anything would have happened to him if he had not been a Pastor or a Teacher, if she was over the age of 16, at least that is what our Ohio Revised Code says (I looked it up online). But, he abused his authority as a person that a child could trust.

I agree. From what I've been told, there was no sex. Def inappropriate behavior but there was no sex. I guess he's got that going for him. Dunno. Personally, I think this is a one time stupid mistake. Maybe he was facing the dreaded mid-life crisis. From what I've heard, she just turned 18. Still, you're right. It's more of an abuse of his authority than anything else.

The definition of 'is' implies something exists in the present tense. Because I'm fairly sure there wasn't any oral sex going on at Clinton's hearing, saying oral sex *is anything, wouldn't have made sense. Maybe it *was sex, at some point, though.
Did someone a few posts up, say this guy must have been going through a mid-life crisis? Really?
It worries me, that all we hear about anymore are these Christian/Catholic youth 'leaders' that keep on molesting kids.
If this happened in any other group, a guy like this would need to be hitting the road, but the Christians will protect them.
A couple of you act like this is a technicality, but surely you're not suggesting that we hold religious leaders to a lower ethical standard than teachers, or any other person in a position of authority? It's always a technicality when it concerns you or someone you know. What if it were a 17yo high school student and the math teacher? Or a juvenile inmate and a guard at a detention facility? Or a foster kid and their guardian? Do any of these sound okay? They're all statutory rape, and Jesus ain't savin' anyone here.

I think he should be sent to prison for what he has done & really see how he Is going to make It In there specially when they find out his charge which they will as soon as he walks In there. People like that deserve what they get! I do not feel sorry for him at all. He's a very sick man!!
