Lock him up for 30 years. This stuff has to stop there is to much of this going on all over the country. Is this man a union member? If so what is going on with the unions, just the money and don't care about the children. Mabey the union should start doing a check on these people. We all know the school can't do it.

Well when will the school board and Administration start screening every damn employee they have! Not just the teachers but all the personnel too... bet you'd find out the rest of them are druggies or theives too. But until the hiring of family and friends stop the community will never know exactly what kind of monsters they are sending their kids to be around, because it's all a cover up from the top down!!!

Nothing will really happen to him he'll leave town serve a couple of years and then come back to Alamogordo and do jobs for the city and county like nothing happened. Maybe as a Construction Company. Hee Hee. and you all know what I am talking about.

I don't know, but the HS band director from my hometown was accused of inappropriate contact with female students. That was years after I was out of school, and it totally shocked the community because he had taught there for many years.

Aren't band directors required to have the same teaching licenses and go through the same screenings as any other teacher?

Gone are days when teachers could get away with this, huh? Back in my days, a female teacher was getting it on with a junior (every student knew it) but nobody raised a single voice of complaint. Maybe a double standard? hehehehe

Considering the number of these types of problems that have been reported in our greater community's school systems, I am surprised that APS has not been sued for not providing a safe environment, doing the proper background checks, etc.

Background checks only show what a person has done in the past. They can't predict the future. If a person has a clear background check how are you supposed to know what they might do.
