Not enough information. Was this arrest based on evidence or just a complaint?

If he did it, he should be held accountable--if he did not, I feel sorry for him, as his name has now been released to the public.

With the bond having been so low it would seem they don't have any concrete evidence against him to prove he's a threat. I could be wrong but usually bond is higher.... unless the $750 was 10% of the original bond?? Now that could be it but it wasn't said!

If he's innocent I hope he can get his life back after this. If he's guilty then he'll have to pay the price for his actions.

I hope the kids are getting help and know they didn't do anything wrong in telling the truth but if they're lying then I hope they are made to do some kind of "sentence" for ruining another's life with a lie.

It seldom is. Yet I've known innocent people that have done YEARS in prison trying to prove their innocense from inside. Nobody wins! We pay to house a prisoner and if they're truly innocent they've lost their life..... it's a sad world today.

Thats really sad. That someone does time. And hasn't done anything wrong. You would think the lawyers would be good enough to prove it.

$750 bail? Is that a joke? Whether the charges are true of not is for the justice system to find out. The suspect should be taken more seriously with the charges against him! Have you looked on the sex offender registry for your zip code lately? It seems like there is an offender on every corner! I know of several apartment complexes with in 2 miles of my house that each have 5-6 offenders living in them.

I was surprised they only set $750 for bail.

I did look up on sex offender registery online and, unfortnately, had several offenders, within 10 miles from my home.

i agree.. now days you can be arrested on just a complaint / lie as long as CPS says it is so.

I don't know if it's a lie or not, but I'm always a little apprehensive when DHS or CPS is involved. I don't trust either agency where children are involved.
