THE POOR MAN IS NOT GUILTY OF RAPE. THE DETECTIVES ARE JUST BEING JERKS AND RACIST. That is simpy my opinion. Where is the woman that started all this? Why is she hiding?

About time...There was not enough evidence because it did not happen. He better get his job back. If you all think he's to creepy to join band or choir then dummies...DON'T ENROLL...the class will be better without trouble makers anyway and the programs will be better off. Watch what you say because what comes around goes around. I can't wait to be there at Granada to hear the smurks so I can smurk back and tell you idiots what people think of you.

To the DA theres also no reason NOT to believe Roa. Are you taking sides?

To those who came forward complaining about obviously nothing but to make trouble. Tell the truth. Didn't your mother teach you not to point finger and place blame. Look in the mirror creeps!

This is sickening Roa has always been the most perverted man to ever walk the halls of Granda. He should be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law. He deserves a harsher punishment for finally being accused. I personally know that he would always stare down girl shirts and make improper estures towards them.

I AM GLAD TO HEAR THAT MR.ROA IS FOUND INNOCENT OF THE CHARGES!!! FOR THOSE OF YOU DUMB PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT YOU KNOW THE LAW, YOU NEED ALL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE IN ORDER TO PROSECUTE A CASE!! THERE ARE VERY FEW CASES WHO HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED WITH INDIRECT (IN OTHER WORDS CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE)AND IN THIS CASE THERE WAS NO DIRECT EVIDENCE IN ORDER TO PROSECUTE HIM. I KNEW IT!! AND I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THIS GIRL IS, AND I THINK THAT SHE OWES MR. ROA A PUBLIC APOLOGY FOR EVERYTHING THAT SHE PUT HIM THROUGH. AS FOR THE DECTECTIVES COMMENT I FEEL IN MY OPINION HE IS BEING VERY BIASED AND IN HIS PROFESSION I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT HE NEEDS TO MAINTAIN AN UNBIASED OPINION AT ALL TIMES. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WENT TO THE POLICE AND MADE STATEMENTS ABOUT MR. ROA THAT IS ALL THEY WERE WAS FALSE STATEMENTS MADE AGAINST HIM. REMEMBER TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO WISHED THE WORST FOR HIM AND WANTED HIM CONVICTED... SHAME ON YOU!! FOR ALL OF YOU WHO WROTE MEAN AND HEATFUL THINGS ABOUT MR.ROA I HOPE THAT YOU OR ANYONE CLOSE TO YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO READ OR EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS ENDURED.

um well...... don't know him don't know her but don't assume that just because they didn't find enough evidence the girl needs to be subjected to a witch hunt now.

to anyone who thought for one moment that this innocent man would ever think of touching someone, you are most mistaken. i appologise for your ignorance, you must not have been paying attention. as one of roa's alumni, i've never met such a courteous, caring, and giving man. all he ever cared for was the students; and all he ever will care for is the students! my message for the accuser is "what goes around, comes around" and "you reap what you sew." the same goes to anyone who doubted him for one second!

What you mean is you reap what you SOW not sew. You plant the seeds (sow), and then later you gather the resulting harvest (reap). bwahahahahahaahah

I dont know why the sheriff department allows sorry a@@ detectives to investigate in such a hostile manner and push to have a case file that has no merits or truth. they had zero on the guy and still filed the case. Those detectives only wanted to heard answers to their specific questions and refused to hear out anyone's personal opinions.
I have a whole new opinion about the sheriff's department and its detectives at the sex crime unit in whittier

I'm very glad Roa is going to keep teaching at Granada. Without him the music program is nothing!He made it what it is.

Seriously, for all of those who believe that he was falsely arrested and that the Sheriff's Dept. is in the wrong; YOU NEED TO STOP. You cleary have no idea what this man was like with his students. Most of the poeple commenting were never even present at Granada, and for those of you who were, you had to be blind to not see that Roa was a grade A creeper. The Sheriff's Dept. did exactly what they were supposed to do, especially in the situation of rape involving a minor. It is their job, especially in the case involving a school where we are supposed to feel safe, to make sure that future students are not put in any kind of danger.
No one should even be saying anything against the girl who was assulted. The mere fact that she came forward says so much about her strength, that all of you 'witch-hunters' have no right to say otherwise. So please, for the sake of us all, get over yourselves.
God Bless you all, AND the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department.

I happen to know Roa and he is a very kind person. Seems to me that you are doing the creeping! The poor girl who made the accusation was and is obviously deranged! She belongs in a mental hospital Comprende?
