It doesn't matter that she was willing. She is a student, he is a teacher. He knows better. Teachers are taught this is not ok. It is in their handbook. He was wrong, he should be punished.

He should definitly be punished.It doesnt matter even if it wasnt forced she was only 14 at the time. Are we going to let our 14 year old start driving because they say they know how? Are we going to let them get married because they say they are ready? We have laws for a reason and if you just let this one go because the girl said yes then we are going to have to start changeing laws and stop tring to protect our children.

Sounds like Mr roper likes to rob the craddle and should be sent up for that. Young kids don't know what they want or need at that age,but he knew and took advantage of a young girl. That's what I think.There are alot of those old coots out there in todays world, but teachers should not be one, they should be better role models for the students and more respectful of them-selves, and the students. What ever happened to moral standards?

My ex wife was a teacher at Steelville Elementary. Richau had a deal going where he was having sex with one teenage female student (at least) every year, and it had been going on for years. One female student had the guts to go to authorities, when she did, others came forward saying that he had sex with them, too. He lost his MO teaching certificate for life.

I used to be a delivery driver. Would love to catch him in my crosshairs backing into a dock. Funny how your foot can slip off the brake.
