he used to teach and coach out at the old Washington Junior High School near Alum Creek. Used to live in Armour View. After Washington was closed he went to Stonewall, I think. I heard that he finally got caught after all these years and got sent to jail.

Yup, he got what was coming to him for sure. Perv had to do 5 years in prison and had to register as a sex offender too. I heard he was now working at T Graphics on the Westside. Hard to believe that they'd want a guy working for them that used his position as a teacher and a coach to have sex with countless underage girls at thr old Washington Junior High, the old Lincoln Junior High and them at Stonewall Jackson Middle School. Rumor was he may have messed around with his own daughters too!
He's a sick perv and people should stay clear of him.

I am the youngest daughter of don Lucas and yes , he went to prison but do NOT speak on a situation you know ABSOLUTELY nothing about. He has never and would never touch me or my sister in any type of inappropriate way. So close you're mouth. Nobody is perfect , so grow up. Sad thing is , you're probaly an ADULT gosipping. GROW UP

All I know is when I played football for Coach Lucas he preached Family and he was a heck of a coach. I believe he made some mistakes that I know nothing about personally and he paid the price. I am glad I got to play for Coach Lucas.

The people defending this POS need to remember that he had sex with multiple VERY young girls. I'm sure he's sooooo sorry about it now but it doesn't help those poor girls whose lives he ruined. He should still be in prison where he belongs!

I had Coach Lucas for health class and loved him!! He may have done some things wrong...I personally wasn't one the "victims" so to speak. You can say all of the bad things you want about him, and I'm not at all condoning what happened, but the "poor girls" he supposedly had sex with may have been underage but I guarantee you that he didn't force himself on them....they were slutty enough to say yes.

You are blaming a rape victim and should hang your head in shame.

I'm truly sorry for the "rape victim" if that's what really happened. I don't know all the details of what happened with him. All I know is what I saw when he taught MY class and know all the girls who would flirt with him and the algebra teacher (at the time) and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he was falsely accused at any point. I have nothing whatsoever to "hang my head in shame" about.

Hang your head in shame for calling minor rape victims "slutty" and for your support of a rapist.

you're an absolute disgusting human being. were you a victim? no. do not try and be a "victims" voice. whats funny is there was never any proof or "multiple" girls come forward. it was one girl who came forward trying to say she was raped this and that, when in reality, the 2 were in a relationship. i know coach lucas and i will defend him until the end because i know what kind of person he truly is. its repulsive for you to continue to base your thoughts off "heresay". pathetic.

Wow are you actually serious? Who was the adult in the situation? Who was the ine NOT a minor child, who should have had the ethics and the balls to back away? Who should have known it was against the law to manipulate an impressionable child (because thats what they were - children)? He was and likely still is a dirty old pervert. Period. Maybe he is your family, but...so? Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer were someone's family, too.
Whether there was proof or not...dude did time for it, right? Therefore he did something horribly, terribly WRONG in the eyes of the law and so it doesnt make a damn what you say in defense of him. And anyone who does ANYthing to destroy anyone's childhood and cause them any kind of emotional trauma is a no good piece of shit, i dont care how great a coach or how nice a guy he was/is.
You have serious issues if you think actions like that are the least bit defensible. I hope you aren't a parent, or god forbid the parent of a daughter.
And OF COURSE there needs to be a victim's voice. For any victim, of any crime. Are you a sociopath or are you just brainwashed over the years by the guy's 'poor me, wrongfully accused' story? Go on somewhere else with that BS. Geez.

Oh its a good thing you are not in the criminal justice system because you CLEARLY know absolutely NOTHING about how it works. many are wrongfully accused and locked up for years and years until finally someone actually does their job and discovers a mistake. am I saying this man is wrongfully accused? no. but I am saying, YOU personally know absolutely nothing about this case and you have no idea about anything you are saying. as others, you are basing your WRONG opinions, if I may add, on hearsay. it is called statutory rape when two CONSENTING adults have sex but one is a minor. in this case the man was 21 and the "victim" was 17. dating for many months before he "raped" her. do not discuss topics before you know a case.

It was not just one female he was inappropriate toward. And they were not all 4 years his junior, either.

It is YOU who clearly knows nothing about this case. Don Lucas was charged with having sexual relations numerous times with 4 different girls who ranged in ages 12 to 15 when he had sex with them. Don Lucas was the teacher and school coach of all of his victims. Lucas was in his mid to late 30's the last time he was known to have engaged in sexual relations with a minor female. The indictment I believe included something like 150 counts, but you can feel to research that for yourself in the Circuit Clerk's Office at the Kanawha County Courthouse Annex. Because the case against him was so strong, Don Lucas agreed to plead guilty to a handful of felony counts of having sexual relations with a minor shortly after having been indicted. Don Lucas quickly plead guilty to get a lessor sentence because he knew he was guilty and was facing life in prison if he went to trial - does this sound to you like the actions of an innocent person?? He spent 5 years in prison and he is a registered sex offender. He ruined the lives of several very young and impressionable girls (yes, there were many more than the 4 in the indictment). Those girls have had a life sentence of dealing with the repercussions of Don Lucas' sexual abuse.

Clearly he is your friend or is related to you, and I'm sure you'll continue to defend him. That's up to you, but you should at least have the facts straight.

I've watched enough episodes of dateline NBC, 48 hours, etc. to know that some people will blindly defend their family members when it's clearly obvious to anyone with 1/4 of a brain that they are guilty.
