WTH is wrong with you people. He hasnt even been charged and you want to crucify this man. It doesnt even say his name. It could be anyone for all you know. At least wait til whoever is found guilty, or at least charged for petes sake. And we all know teenagers NEVER lie.
That site didn't mention his name. But the administration in Lewis County did. As well as the newspapers in Weston. It's common knowledge. He admits to being under investigation.

shouldnt apply for jobs working with kids until after the investigation. hope he is not guilty but why would u wanna chance someone working with your children that may not be. Kids this age are easily influenced and Manipulated. Yes, sometimes teenagers do lie. But usually they are telling the truth in these types of situations. Most of the time we dont even know these things occurred until they have grown. they often dont tell or are threatened or afraid of all the negativity it brings so they recant their story. u dont usually quit your job if you did nothing wrong.

He did not get a job at any school. Thank you to everyone for stepping up to this and taking charge.

Reguardless if he has been charged or anything, anyone that is under investigation should not apply to any job, especially in a school with children and young adults, until proven innocent.

Now he's not in any school system and around no children. So thankful for all your support.

Guess that phrase doesn't ring a bell round these here parts.

West Virginia State Police is investigating allegations of inappropriate behavior between a teacher and a student at Lewis County High School. No one has been charged, but state police said it's currently having evidence processed

I didn't find any updates and it has been almost 2 months since reported. Has anyone looked at the teaching record otherwise? Many times students exact revenge on teachers b/c of grades or dislike of them and lets face it, kids can make things up.

I am not saying that something has or has not transpired, but everyone is jumping on the bandwagon to blackball this teacher when evidence is being processed. There are too many if's about this to ruin a person's career all on what can be considered heresay. lets not judge lest ye be prapared to be judged.

If this teacher is guilty, then that is another story, but the last time I checked EVERYONE was entitled to a fair and speedy trial (if it even comes to that)But all you parents have decided that he is guilty and are acting like the Salem witch trials and burning this poor soul at the stake all on heresay. SHAME on YOU. For all we know, it could be a total fabrication and you people are ruining this person's career. Let his teaching records and files speak for themselves: does this person have other cases pending? What was the age of the child. Could it have been an caring teacher that was about to call a student out for unacceptable behavior? We just don't know but ahame on 95% of these posts.
It's no wonder Richwood cannot get any good teachers, who would want to work for a system that is biased and lives by the rule of guilty until proven innocent.

If it actually happened then let the law and schoolboard figure it out, and the punishment to fit the crime, not punishing someone on heresay, which you are currently doing which could result in a lawsuit in the lines of defamation of character

Why don't you take a look at the teachers already employed there that are coming to work doped up or drunk or popping narcotics and downers just to cope.

SHAME ON YOU PEOPLE, SHAME. SHAME SHAME

THey are investigating, who knows the circumstances yet u ppl have already convicted him quite possibly ruining his reputation if he is innocent. There wasn't more posted since 5/24, yet all of you are ready to burn him at the stake. This could be nothing more than a student crying wolf due to a bad grade or was embarrassed in front of their peers by the teacher. DId anyone look up his record thus far? I fear that you are forming a posse and judging him on heresay without solid proof.SHAME on YOU, it is no wonder that WV cannot get good teachers the way everyone bends the truth to suit there needs. Come on city meetings, BOE meetings. HE could have been assisting a student to improve their grades which the lazy bums in school now barely know how to read and write.

Go ahead and blackball him and if this is all unfounded, be prepared for a lawsuit, I know i would sue the pants off each and everyone of you for blackballing based on what could be false accusations. If he is guilty of this then he should pay severly, don't get me wrong, but he deserves a fair chance , a speedy trial and the chance to prove his innocence. Shame Shame Shame, nothing has been posted since the 5/24 report, and well to all you brainwashed ppl that think papers don't lie, maybe you need to go back to school and learn that everyone is innocent until proven guilty
